Patient JC (Age 25) – Silver Filling Replacement with Composite Resin
Patient JC saw us recently with initial complaints of food packing in between his upper left teeth. This food packing was identified to be caused by tooth decay in between his teeth as a result of a chipped silver filling in his molar which had seen better days. An adjacent premolar also restored with a silver amalgam filling was also noted to be leaking with underlying tooth decay beneath the filling.
These three teeth were easily managed with 3 composite resin fillings in a single appointment.
CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES-2 (a nano-filled composite) was used to provide an aesthetic and natural looking finish which is indistinguishable from the surrounding tooth.
