More CEREC PHOTOS
|The Patient had no symptoms and the x-ray had no evidence of this advance decay. Yet we still knew there was a problem because of the Photo #1. You can see the crack at 12 o'clock on the tooth and the blue-gray hue around that part of the old filling. It was ready to fracture.
Photo #2 shows the decay that we found after we removed the old silver filling. (This is VERY common.) Photo #3 shows the shape of the tooth after all the decay was removed. Photo #4 shows the tooth when the patient walked out, just an hour to completely restore this fragile tooth!
We hit a Home Run in the end... Beautiful
||This is the most common kind of problem we treat with CEREC. This tooth would definitely need a crown if we didn't have CEREC technology.
In Photo #1 you can see a large, ugly old filling, and 2 cracks (one at 12 o'clock and one at 3 o'clock) In photo #2, you an see we found a lot of decay.
After we removed all the decayed and fragile enamel, we milled our CEREC and bonded it in like a puzzle piece. This one is still invisible after 5 years.
||This is another very typical situation where CEREC is the most conservative and long-lasting solution. You can see in photo #1 the old filling is all black and is a blue-gray color around the edges. In photo #2, we had removed the filling and found decay. It left a hole in the middle of the tooth just like a pumkin is hollowed out when carved. This very large hole in the middle of the tooth makes the tooth very suseptible to fracture.
You can see the CEREC porcelain puzzle piece process in the bottom two photos. It was milled and bonded into place. The tooth has the same strength as it had before it ever had a filling.
