Large Silver Filling Replaced with Crown
This wonderful woman had a back molar needing attention. The tooth had a large silver filling with a cavity around it. The tooth was weakened from the large old silver filling and would be even weaker after the decay was removed. Dr. Jordan decided that the best form of treatment would be a crown. You can see how much decay was under the old filling by looking at the before pictures. The decay was removed and the missing tooth structure was replaced with a bonded composite filling. The end result was a beautiful porcelain crown.
