Our patient was concerned about her discoloured front tooth. The discolouration is a result of trauma to the tooth when she was younger. Composite resin was added to the tooth to repair a chip from the trauma. Additional composite was added to help with the discolouration. It was time to replace the composite as it was worn and discoloured. Shade matching a dark tooth is a challenge because we are limited to the degree we can change the shade based on the thickness of the material. The more thickness of material we need, the more tooth structure needs to be removed. In this case, only the pre-existing composite was removed. Ideally, a porcelain restoration will give better aesthetics and longevity. Until then, our patient is thrilled with the improvement in the look of her front tooth with composite!
