The husband of a close friend of Teresa (my dental offices receptionist) came to me with the chief complaint of a lower right rough tooth and gum irritation around it. In the first picture a cleaned up extracted tooth #27 is seen. For undermined reasons, this tooth suffered severe internal resorption. This is usually the result of a traumatic event, but in this case, the patient did not recall prior trauma. This tooth was extracted and site preservation bone grafting done. Four months later I placed a dental implant into the grafted site. Three months later I placed a 15 degree slim angled dental implant abutment with an immediate temporary crown. The deficient remaining gum tissue was sutured around the temporary crown. The tissue healed magnificently, a final impression was taken and a CAD-CAM full milled zirconia crown fabricated as seen in the second picture.
