First Margin Elevation Case

Introduction to the case

I’ve taken a number of courses and have seen some great cases on here with margin elevation, so I found a case worthy of trying my hand at it. I would really like some feedback for those of you who’ve done a number of these. The patient had mild sensitivity on the gingiva for a few days but said it has felt fine since.

Overall I thought the tissue looked pretty good considering. I bonded on an emax crown and the margin height made the process easy and ensured complete isolation.

We ran out of time so no final crown pic or XR.
