Just some examples of what you can expect

BEFORE:  A silver filling with decay around the margins on one tooth and a simple cavity on the other molar.

                                          

AFTER:   Both teeth were prepared and tooth colored bonded restorations were placed.


BEFORE: Both teeth have older silver fillings with decay around margins.

            

AFTER: Both teeth were prepared and tooth colored bonded restorations were placed.


BEFORE: First tooth teeth had older  fillings with decay at margins, last tooth also had an existing older silver filling with decay. The greyish shadowing on the last tooth represents decay below the enamal creating an undermined tooth structure that is at a high risk for fracturing.

                  Taken January 2011                        Taken February 2012 (Decay much worse)

     

AFTER: First two teeth were able to be restored with tooth colored bonded fillings. The last tooth needed a lab made porcelain onlay due to the amount of tooth structure loss after removing older filling and decay. The picture above shows the temporary onlay that the patient will have until the restoration returns from the lab.


BEFORE:  Tooth had a large existing older silver restoration with decay at margins. There was a food trap present between the silver filling and tooth behind due to an open contact.

           

AFTER: Due to the amount of tooth structure loss the tooth needed a lab made 3/4 crown. As is evident in the second picture the contact has been closed creating a much healthier gum tissue in that area.


BEFORE: Xray showing a dark shadow (decay) into the nerve of the tooth. Pictures showing the amount of tooth structure loss after decay is removed and canals are accesed. Top view is looking at the tooth from the biting surface into the canals. After the nerve is removed the canals are filled with a material to seal them from bacteria. Second xray shows the canals filled with gutta percha and sealed to the tips of the roots.

   

    

AFTER: Soon to come
