Before and After Photos #3
The photographs shown here are merely examples of what was achieved using the techniques and materials available at Burpengary Dental. In no way do we guarantee that you will receive the exact same results because every individual patient will have different tooth structure and anatomy.
Tooth 11 broke off leaving almost no tooth structure. A root canal treatment was performed and the core of the tooth was built up onto a titanium post. A porcelain crown was fabricated and bonded.

Tooth 13 was root treated and weak. This tooth broke off completely to the gum line. A radiograph was taken to check the integrity of the previous root canal treatment. For cost reasons, the patient elected to have the tooth restored with a composite crown rather than a porcelain crown. The gum was retracted and a titanium post was cemented into the root canal and this was opaqued before the composite crown was placed using two shade for a nice result.

Teeth 14 and 15 had unsightly and deeply worn composite resin restorations. These were removed and the opposing teeth were adjusted to reduce the depth of the bite. The biting areas of the teeth were restored with a posterior strength composite resin to reduce the potential for further wear. The sides of the teeth were shade matched using a layering technique with three shades to result in a natural appearance.

Tooth 24 had a very large and unsightly cavity. The tooth had a lot of discolouration at the root surface following previous root canal treatment. The decay was removed from the tooth and an opaquer was used to hide some of the darkness at the root surface. The gum was retracted and a layering technique using 4 shades of composite resin was performed to restore the tooth and provide an improved appearance.

Tooth 21 had a stained and unsightly old composite resin restoration. The teeth have a general mottled appearance due to a formation problem. The old restoration was removed and under this, the tooth was very dark. An opaquer was used to hide the darkness and then tooth was restored with some custom mottling to help match it to the adjacent tooth.
