Broken tooth fixed with composite

Martin before and after

Case of the week

Sam took a spill late night on his college campus on a sheet of ice and landed directly on his mouth.  The result can be seen below.  Fortunately the tooth did not break into the nerve and I was thus able to restore the tooth with a composite veneer.

I don’t usually like to use composite veneers, but this situation was really ideal. If there is damage to more than one tooth I tend to prefer porcelain veneers.
