Oopsi—— This 16 year old had a skate board accident. He broke 2 front teeth in his smile line. The breaks were really deep penetrating the nerve of each tooth. Dr. Friedman bonded both teeth with composite material matching his surrounding teeth perfectly.
Dr. Friedman discussed with the patient and his family the possibility of the teeth turning gray in days, weeks, or even years later from the nerve damage. If this were to happen, Dr. Friedman would place all porcelain crowns on the two teeth matching the rest of his surrounding teeth and smile.
Dr. Friedman is very conservative and will always discuss treatment giving the patients a better understanding of their dental situation. This patient was very pleased with his result.
