Subject: [roots] Specially for Craig - a filling :-)

I don't do these often... in fact, on average i do about 11-20 directs a year. So i took me a while to
catch a fresh case and take pictures... So, hot off the press and here you :-)

Two post-op shots:
a) right after final cure
b) right after final occlusal adjustment (which was essentially a minimal touch up on a couple of cusp inclines)

That speaks about everything about my prep design (honestly, i can't understand why previous doc had to cut
a sort of a Black-style prep for a resin... now i had my hands sort of tied with a ihed right from the beginning.
If i were the first doc on that tooth - no way in hell i'd cut such a largish prep).

Next restoration for this tooth (should this resin eventually fail) would be an onlay. A gold one.
Patient is a dentist, so she's on the same page with me regarding material selection:-) - Dmitri
