Another hidden cavity-filled

But the final filling worked out well.  And the patient has had not trouble at all with the tooth. Due to the size and extent of the original cavity the next step for this tooth will be a crown, in 3-5 years.

Yes, there’s more here than you’d think.  Here’s what these teeth looked like after we started cleaning them out. Looks like a lot more is there than when we first saw them!

So, in only a few minutes we went from a cracked, unsightly tooth to this.  An easy fix and it looks great!!

Here are the views of each tooth.  You’ll notice the first one shows an old, stained filling in the middle of the tooth.

A little while ago I posted some pretty scary photos of my office as it was being renovated, including this one:

But, when the tooth is opened up, look what’s inside:

This was NOT evident when you looked at the tooth (see below) and was only found with an x-ray.

We tried to save her current, new crown with some bonding and, at the same time add back to the other tooth. This was a quick, painless repair and got her on her way and back to work in no time!

Fractured front teeth

So here’s the story. This young lady was in a rush to get to work, was looking down, and forgot about the glass doors ahead of her. After she ran into them the only damage was to these two teeth. She had just had a new crown placed on her upper right central incisor (the broken tooth on her right, or the left in the photo) just before she moved to town. The other tooth had some bonding. Understandably, she was upset. And we needed a quick fix to get her on her way back to work.

Pretty tooth

So that was a bad looking tooth.  This looks better.  The crown that was placed on this tooth has an all-porcelain margin (that’s the area where the tooth and crown meet).  There’s no metal in this area to give the gray appearance you can see so often around crowns.  Ask your dentist what esthetic alternatives you have when you are getting a crown.  Tell him or her you want it to look as good as this tooth!!

Notice how the new front teeth blend well with the existing teeth in back? They look like they’ve been there forever!
