Is It Viable To Use A Previously Extracted Tooth As A Crown For My Back Molars. Has This Ever Been Done Before.

Q.
Hello. Is it viable to use one’s own wisdom teeth (previously extracted) to create crowns for the back molars? Would the tooth remain strong? Stronger than the traditional metal casing cap added porcelain? Could the wisdom tooth be drilled out and the cap mould poured into the wisdom tooth? Would it survive longer than the average 10-15 years? Rather the 50 plus years I expect to need it? The fit would be great since I recently found three wisdom teeth and I may need crowns on the back upper and lower molars they need to be a perfect bite match. Very curious to find out if this has been tried and what the success rates are if so. Thank you.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately this is not a recognised procedure and is unlikely to work for many reasons. If you would like some further information on on porcelain crowns and the procedures involved you can find it through this website. I hope this helps. Dr Marcus Gambroudes.
