Replacing Aged Restorations
No matter how sophisticated or expensive some restorations are, over time they can deplete and require some specialist dental care. It is quite common for a problem to occur in the tooth for which the restoration was made, rather than the restoration itself. In other cases, problems can occur around the gums, with structures surrounding the restored tooth and even with the adjacent teeth. Other reasons for the replacement of restorations include decay, broken or chipped restorations and discolouration.
One of the most common complications is gingival recession, where the gum shrinks above the crown exposing the interface. This often results in the display of the darkened root surface and can spoil the aesthetics of otherwise good and well-functioning restorations. At MDS, we can assess the health of your aged restoration and recommend solutions.
