Should I get crowns or just refill for my four front teeth? (photos)

I would have to agree with your dentist that crowning your four front teeth appears to be the best option. Usually, all porcelain crowns are the best aesthetic option for anterior (front) teeth. I use both Empress and Emax for my patients. Both are great and look very natural. The cost of crowns varies from office to office and varies depending upon the region in which you live. Another factor that will determine the cost of your crowns is the dental insurance that you carry. The best indicator to determine if the dentist is going to give you the results that he/she claims, is by viewing before and after photos of his/her patients that have undergone similar or the same procedures. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Dental crowns or fillings
Thanks for your question. If you are having root canal treatment, I suggest doing a crown. In that case, two crowns would give a better cosmetic result. From the pictures, your fillings would be very large. Fillings/bonding will eventually stain and is not as strong as porcelain. Final plan would depend on your bite, dental and medical history, condition of the teeth, and what needs to be done. Good luck
Porcelain crowns is definitely the way to go to restore these teeth permanently and get an esthetically pleasing and natural result. You might want to consider crowns for the front 4 teeth is possible to get the best result.
