Interesting case. College age gal, hx of trauma. Accessed previously
by referring doc. There was an acute flareup of a chronic peri-radicular
She became assymptomatic after visit 1. I was unable to negotiate the
apical wisp of a root.
Filled with MTA topped with cavit (a la Herbranson), then bonded post/core.
I cut back the post a bit and veneered with tetric ceram. The facial work
was a little value added thing which I hadn't talked about at the consult
and surprised her with as a n/c extra thing for her. She was thrilled with
that little improvement. I don't do enough cosmetic procedures to
warrant keeping an array of different shade resins in stock, so the only
shade of tetric I had didn't blend really great, but it should look better
as the tooth re-hydrates. Liviu
I ain't but I was good enough to make this gal happy! LOL - Mark Dreyer
