This patient came to us with broken down and decayed teeth. After removing the decayed tooth structure, tooth-colored composite fillings were placed to restore function. Well placed fillings can last many years if properly maintained.
Cosmetic bonding can be used to correct many problems, and one is to correct tooth discolorations. In this case, the patient had pitted and discolored enamel after orthodontic treatment. This minimally invasive technique was used to replace the damaged enamel with composite filling material matched and blended to the patients natural tooth.
This patient had an old metal filling that was decayed and failing. After removing the existing filling and unhealthy tooth structure, a tooth-colored composite filling was placed.
This patient had a painful, broken filling that also had a substantial amount of decay underneath. The fractured fragment was lodged into the gums between the teeth and was very irritating. The metal filling was removed and the decay was cleaned out before placing a tooth-colored composite filling.
Agnes came to us with a severely worn and decayed lower molar. She wanted her tooth restored but also wanted the quickest and least expensive treatment. To accommodate her wishes, the tooth was cleaned up and a composite crown was directly built on the remaining structure. In all, the treatment took less than 1 hour and didn't require a second visit.
This patient had a tooth-colored composite filling that had fractured and was loose (black arrow). One of the benefits of a 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!
This patient had an old metal filling that was starting to leak and had recurrent decay. There were also some cracks forming on the tooth. The filling was replaced with a new tooth-colored composite filling that will serve the patient well. The blue marks are from the paper used to check the bite and wash off.
This patient suffered from a combination of acid erosion and grinding, which led to accelerated wear on her lower right molar. The enamel had been lost on the chewing surface and the underlying tooth structure was exposed. A conservative tooth-colored composite filling was placed to restore function and protect the tooth.
This patient came to us with a fractured tooth and a large existing metal filling. The tooth was also sensitive to cold. After removing all the old filling materials and smoothing, a tooth-colored composite filling was used to repair the tooth. The tooth should now function for years to come, and the temperature sensitivity greatly improved.
