Treatment of a Fractured Tooth With Composite Resin
Direct placement composite resin restorations have been used in dentistry since the advent of 'bonding,' a technique to adhere filling material to tooth structure. Now referred to as adhesive dentistry, state of the art materials and decades of refined technique, allow dentists to restore absent tooth structure conservatively, and virtually invisibly. It is another example of the magic of modern dentistry.
Robert presented to the dental office of Gleghorn Cosmetic Dentistry with a fractured lateral incisor, sustained in an accident.
Only minimal reduction of otherwise healthy tooth structure was necessary for placement of a sculpted composite resin restoration, bonded to the tooth. The procedure yielded a cosmetic result in a single visit.
