Old Silver Filling with Decay Replaced with Tooth Colored Filling
Routine x-rays revealed decay on the back side of this tooth under a silver filling. On the front side of this tooth, there was a tooth colored filling that was touching the silver filling. Removal of both fillings revealed decay on both the front and back of the tooth. After careful and meticulous decay removal, the tooth was restored with a composite. The shade match between the filling and tooth was almost unnoticeable.
