All of the cases shown here were completed by Dr. Bradley Jordan. The dental laboratories that we use are well respected and provide us with strong, great fitting crowns, veneers, and removable appliances. Whether you are looking to have a few fillings replaced or a complete smile makeover, we take pride in our work and will take the time to make sure that it is beautiful, feels good, and lasts a long time.
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.
This tooth had an old, average-size silver filling. However, the silver (amalgam) filling had several crack lines in it. When a silver filling has cracks in it like these, bacteria can get through the cracks and cause dental decay. The amalgam filling was removed which revealed a significant amount of decay. Fortunately, the decay did not go into the nerve of the tooth and it was restored with a large, bonded composite.
