Introduction to the case
This 50 year old patient was in today for a check-up on his teeth. I had not seen him for 20 months since we restored his lower teeth. We had restored his upper teeth 2 months previous to doing his lower teeth. He came from another neighboring dental office where they don’t do composite rehabs. He has been into this other office for several cleanings since we did his rehab but he smokes, loves his coffee and has lots of stain. Anyway I was wondering how he was making out with his new teeth and he was very satisfied. In his words “no pain or sensitivity or problems”. So I was quite happy with his rehab. His wife came as well and we knew each other from 30 years ago when my daughters and I were riding horses in the same horse club. There were a few air bubbles that I didn’t like and a small open margin that I repaired and that was all he needed to spiffy him up.
