Fractured Alloy Fillings with Recurrent Decay*
These photos show the result of crowning teeth with defective metal fillings. Cavities were detected on xrays taken of the area. The resulting tooth loss was extensive enough that direct filling would not be able to restore the teeth. More
Defective Fillings Restored
Old metal fillings can lead to cracks in the teeth. These cracks become prone to decay. When there is too much tooth structure lost, crowns can be a solution for restoring the form and function. More pressure is applied on the back teeth when chewing , so crown restorations were used for stability and strength.
