This patient came to us because he hasn't been to the dentist for a long time. He knows he has some problems and does not love the look of his teeth. Our exam showed multiple large cavities that involves multiple surfaces and many of them are visible. We considered the pros and cons of fillings vs. crowns and decided to start with fillings and see how well they look and last.
The procedure was quite involved and required delicate isolation of each individual teeth to make sure the fillings does not hang over onto the gum, which can cause chronic inflammation of the gum. It took a few hours to complete the work and we are quite happy with the results. Patient was very happy and said "are these my teeth?" when he first saw the results. We were thrilled to be able to make a difference in this case !!
