Smaha, Charles N. Reviews (1)
Review: She has had to repair or replace two crowns three times each, within a two year period.
Same as above.Desired Settlement: Request crown made in lab, not in her office.
In response to your letter and the complaint filed by the above mentioned
claimant. I have been out of the office for the last three weeks and was not
able to respond to the patient concerns or your inquiry and sooner.
Mr. [redacted] came in because his crown came off. I have previously made
this crown twice and it has come off each time due to the very small tooth
structure and the decreased retention of the crown. The patient had been
informed of this when the crown was made. I do plan to see Mr. [redacted] on
Tuesday, January 14, 2014 for another appointment. At this time I plan to
take an impression of this tooth and have a lab generated crown made.
Usually lab generated crowns tend to have a higher retention rate because
they have a metal liner. The previous crowns I had made were all porcelain
crowns in order to increase esthetics in this area. I am hoping that the new
lab generated crown will not come off for him. This treatment had worked
in another area of his mouth where we had done another porcelain crown for
him earlier last year.
If there is any thing else you require from me please do not hesitate to let me
