Before and after pictures of root abrasion repaired with tooth colored bondings.

June 8, 2015

Here is another case to share with you. Mr. Z had several teeth wearing away at the gum-line.   This is a common problem in adults.   It is frequently caused by abrasion (like vigorous brushing). It is also caused by erosion (acids from foods) and even mal-occlusion.  Once the enamel surface is worn away, the underlying dentin is vulnerable to bacteria and acids. We need to remove that afflicted tooth structure before repairing the defect.   Finally the teeth can be restored with a restoration that we match to each tooth’s natural color.

In the pictures, you will see the teeth with the defects. Next you will see the teeth with the defects outlined in red. Then you will see the teeth with the carious structure removed.   Lastly you will see the teeth repaired.  1 1OL 4 5
