Teeth break, chip and old fillings require new ones. This is a common procedure we do that will restore the tooth or get a cavity filled in. The material we use is called composite and made up of a resin monomer (usually Bis-GMA), a filler (usually inorganic silica) and a photo-initiator (to light activate the monomers to cure and harden the material immediately).
A sample case above by our team. An old metal filling was dislodged and broke part of the tooth as it came out. A white filling was bonded to the existing tooth structure to restore it’s integrity and allow function. The patient can continue to function on this tooth.Another very simple but effective case by Dr. Vu. This wonderful patient was exhausted with the amount of times he had to replace his front filling. A permanent solution was to place a crown on the tooth. The old tooth was prepared and a ceramic custom made cap was made and cemented.
