These teeth are typical of the average NZ mouth - big old
amalgam fillings, some larger white composite fillings and smaller
black fillings with cracks in teeth.
Amalgam contributes to stress fractures in teeth and we commonly
find internal fractures in teeth with moderately sized silver
fillings. Composite or plastic fillings are not always the
best solution in big holes either. In this case we designed 3
porcelain overlays to replace worn old fillings, deal with cracks
and add strength.
