Thousands of Dental Photos have been created by Dr. Jeffrey Dorfman, Director of The Center for Special Dentistry®.
Before and After pictures. Eight white bonded dental fillings. Six teeth crowns caps. Five root canals. Gum therapy. Teeth whitening. Total treatment time: Nine days. The words, crown and cap, mean the same thing; a dental crown and tooth crown also mean the same thing. A fixed dental bridge, prosthesis or bridgework, typically means more than one crown - and that they are connected together as one piece. The word fixed typically means permanently cemented and not removable by the patient. Some patients incorrectly refer to their removable denture as a bridge.
Patient presented with tooth pain. Tooth Decay - cavity - removal. This tooth is being prepared for root canal therapy and a dental crown (cap). How to before and after pictures showing tooth preparation.
Patient presented in dental pain. Tooth decay removal is shown in the pictures. This tooth is being prepared for root canal therapy and a dental crown (cap). Before and after tooth preparation is shown.
Tooth decay treatment of an upper molar. 1) Initial radiograph. 2) X-ray following extraction of tooth #15 and root canal therapy on tooth #14. Note how far the cavity goes below the gum. 3) Tooth preparation following root canal therapy and the removal of the distal decay. 4) Final tooth preparation of the composite crown build-up. Note how the distal tooth preparation extends gingivally beyond the composite to tooth.
Dental caries, tooth decay, around a molar. This has to been removed before referring the patient for crown lengthening periodontal gum surgery so the periodontist knows how much osseous reduction - bone removal - is necessary.
Cracks are sometimes found beneath deep silver fillings. It seems that large silver fillings can sometimes act as a wedge separating buccal and lingual cusps. These cracks can be filled with tooth decay that should be removed. It is important to remove the entire visible crack especially if it extends to the outer tooth surface. A full coverage restoration is usually indicated as a replacement; dental bonding would be a second choice to help reduce progression of the crack because it glues to the side walls of the tooth.
Crown build-up in an upper premolar following root canal therapy and crown lengthening periodontal surgery. There was adequate remaining tooth structure after removal of tooth decay so a cast post and core was not necessary. Consider drilling into the root canal orifices to add mechanical retention for the dental bonding core.
This patient presented with tooth pain on her lower right side. Root canal therapy, crown build-up and dental crown preparation was performed for both the molar and premolar. The premolar is the focus in this series of photos.
This patient presented in dental pain in her lower right jaw. Root canal therapy, crown build-up and tooth crown preparation was performed for both the molar and premolar. The molar is the focus in this series of photos.
There is recurrent decay under the silver filling. Note that buccal tooth decay removal is frequently more sensitive post-op than occlusal decay. Decay is still present. Root canal and a dental crown is the most predictable treatment for this big tooth cavity.
How to Pictures of treatment of a molar with a large amount of tooth decay:
- root canal therapy.
- perio surgery for crown lengthening.
- two gold posts.
- porcelain tooth crown with a metal furcation.
An impacted wisdom tooth damages the healthy adjacent tooth. A large carious lesion, dental cavity, was created by the wisdom tooth growing into it. The patient did not feel any pain.
Treatment: Root canal and dental crown - the crown covers the site where tooth decay was removed.
There is tooth decay under the silver filling. The initial dental crown preparation - drilling - has the shoulder for the endodontic clamp. The final preparation should have a bevel or a chamfer finish line.
Porcelain teeth, cosmetic teeth bonding and teeth bleaching. Full mouth before and after photos.
Sex, drugs, and rock & roll ... and the damage to your mouth. Porcelain teeth oral rehabilitation.
Full mouth rehabilitation before and after pictures. Dental crowns on every tooth. Root canal therapy was performed on every tooth. Avoiding potential painful root canal emergencies with preventive endodontics should be considered and offered to patients when performing reconstructions.
No emergencies means happier patients.
