Root cavities with shark teeth fillings

At the sincere request of this lady, nutrituonal university graduate Wageningen 56 years of age, two Glass Carbomer fillings were placed on buccal root cavities of premolars 44 and 45. Earlier composite fillings placed in the nineties had fallen out some ten years ago. Thanks to enough Healozon the roots were in stable condition and pain free. This category V is challenging to repair with Glass Carbomer without drilling. On experimental basis this was proceded anyway. The picture taken with macro lens show the repairs placed in bulk fill. Esthetically some to be desired. However from at least 1 m distance the looks are fine. Polishing and modelling to be left to another date if desired. The self healing properties of this biologically adaptable filling material with biofusion made it the favourable choice as opposed to composite. A bit of a gamble if it will hold. If it does, worth the chance and effort. The colour will adjust in a couple of weeks.
