Tooth Colored Fillings: Case 1
This patient came in requiring immediate attention for a broken upper molar; the sharp edge was cutting her tongue, and the exposed tooth structure was causing sensitivity. One of the options considered was a crown, but this would have required removal of significant healthy tooth structure and would be a more expensive solution than the one achieved here. We removed the existing old, silver fillings and some decay, bonded and placed a composite (tooth colored) restoration using a matrix band to contain the new filling, and then polished the restoration and discharged the patient, all in about 30 minutes (and painlessly with the help of a light dose of anesthetic). If you look carefully, you will see a fracture line at the back wall of the tooth that will hopefully be prevented from getting worse with the composite filling. The top of the crack is still visible, even in the new, finished restoration.
