This patient had deep decay on her teeth. I extracted her back molars and was able to save this premolar tooth with a pulp cap and a bonded ceramic restoration.
These photos are of a 30 year old lady with a large cavity in her last upper molar. I was able to save the tooth and restore it with a bonded composite restoration without a root canal in 30 minutes. The procedure was totally painless and she was very pleased and had no discomfort after. The tooth will require a porcelain crown in the future.
This first patient was at a concert, and when the band started playing her roommate jumped up and raised her hands and knocked into the beer bottle she was drinking from. The bottle banged into her front tooth fracturing off the edge. I repaired the tooth in 15 minutes with a composite bonded restoration.
This next patient chipped the middle corner of his upper left front tooth playing basketball. I repaired it easily with a bonded composite restoration.
This patient chipped her 2 upper front teeth biting on a pump needle trying to pull it out of a soccer ball.
This patient cracked his molar biting a chicken bone. I was able to save the tooth, and without a root canal, but it did require a crown lengthening periodontal surgery and a crown.
This next patient bit down on a mint candy and fractured her molar down the root. The tooth could not be restored and was extracted and we will place a dental implant.
