In an effort to save himself some money, this patient went to Mexico to get “cheap dental work”. The dental office there ended up giving him a filling and a crown.
He got what he paid for.
- The filling was a done improperly.
- The crown was incredibly ill-contoured.
- There was decay left underneath.
- In addition, the bleeding in the photo was due to the irritation from the toxic metals that were used.
He came to see us to fix all of these problems, and left with 2 new, beautiful, tooth-like crowns in an enamel-similar material.
The tissue will heal in 24 hrs.
Now we’re on to the ill-shaped molar behind these two!
