Repair of a fractured filling
This patient had a tooth colored (composite) filling that had fractured and was loose (black arrow).
One of the benefits of composite is that it can be repaired. The loose piece was removed and more composite was added to regain the natural shape of the tooth. Lastly, the entire filling was polished to a smooth finish.
Treatment like this can be quick, painless, and inexpensive!
