This patient was told by his dentist that his lower front broken incisor tooth could not be saved, and only option was to extract it. He came to me for a 2nd opinion. This is how I saved his tooth:
This patient today broke off his upper lateral incisor. We discussed the different restorative options. I told him I would try to save the root and build a tooth back up for him and place a crown. The tooth had a root canal many years ago. I drilled out the canal and cemented a titanium post inside the canal and build the tooth up. I prepared the tooth and made and cemented a zirconium crown over the build-up.
