These front two teeth took a nasty knock and the upper right central incisor lost most of the tooth above the gum, exposing the nerve in the process. Because this happened to teeth in a very young mouth I was keen to preserve the health of the nerve and do as little adjustment as possible to the teeth before repairing them. The patients regular dentist had built the teeth up as an emergency measure but the patient was keen to restore the looks of the teeth as much as possible.
We were able to restore the teeth as a one visit procedure with no removal of any further sound tooth tissue. The long term future for the very damaged tooth is questionable but we have given it it’s best chance and have kept costs (both financial and biological) to a minimum which should always be our aim.
