Older White Fillings

Older tooth coloured fillings have lower wear rates. In the following example, this Gloucester patient’s filling had become very flattened and food was trapping around it.

The tooth is isolated from moisture using a Rubber Dam and matrix bands are used to create the tooth shape.
