dental bonding technique, All Bond 2, Bis-fil, operative dentistry, dual cured catalyst, bonded
Dental Bonding Technique. After acid etching, apply All Bond 2 dentin primer to remove the smear layer. Then apply All Bond 2 dentin enamel bonding agent with dual cured catalyst. Bis-fil 2B self cured composite is next placed in the interproximal boxes and somewhat over the occlusal floor. It can be compressed into the interproximal boxes by condensing on preformed, already cured 2 mm wide balls of Herculite XRV bonding material. Herculite XRV bonding material is added on top. Light curing should occur for 60 seconds on each the occlusal, buccal and lingual surfaces. A metal matrix band with regular wood wedges work fine. Refine anatomy with a #8 round bur and finishing burs. Then use Fortify.

bonding bonded restorations, composite resin tooth fillings Phobic Patient, Reconstruction PFM Crown
Upper reconstruction in a phobic patient. The patient was a pretty, 33 year-old female. Treatment included porcelain fused to metal crown & bridge, root canal therapy on all abutments, root tip extractions, and facial teeth bonding on both upper lateral incisors. The upper anterior root canal and crowns were first completed to show her how pretty her teeth could look and that it could be accomplished quickly and painlessly. Extractions of the hopeless teeth were all completed at one time and initiated early to allow time for healing before bridgework. Then root canal therapy was performed on the posterior abutments before their preparation for bridgework. The patient experienced minimal post-operative pain.

Final tooth preparation before placement of direct-bonding material in a lower molar. 1) – 2) Final tooth preparation. 3) Placement of chemically-cured flowable bonding material. Note the presence of several spheres of slightly different-colored bonding material within the flowable bonding material. These are spheres of light-cured bonding material (“bonding balls”) that are used to condense against. 4) The final tooth bonded restoration.
bonded composite resin tooth fillings, Large Filling, Decay, Cavity, Failed Amalgam, Gutta Percha
Treatment of a very decayed, root canaled molar with only a large tooth bonded restoration. 1) Neglected lower molar tooth that had an adequate root canal yet very decayed amalgam (silver) filling. 2) View of the extent of the decay after removal of the filling. 3) Decay removed. Note the gutta percha coming out of the three orifices. 4) The bonded restoration. The point here is that a tooth bonded restoration filling can be placed even when a crown is obviously indicated. The crown will be placed after the patient completes orthodontics.
composite resin tooth fillings, Tooth Resorption, Electrosurgery, Gingival Margin, Gingivectomy
Bridge repair. The patient recently lost his job in telecommunications and could not afford replacement of the bridge. 1) X-ray after root canal therapy. The root canal itself did not seem subject to external resorption. 2) Gingivectomy with electrosurgery. Note the still unusual look of the facial decay. 3) Following decay removal. Note the communication to the gutta percha. 4) The tooth bonded restoration filling. Photo #2 of 3.
