Wedge-shaped defect of the 23rd tooth

  • GENDER: male
  • AGE: 34 years old
  • THE REASON FOR APPOINTMENT: Toothbrush abrasion defect on tooth with complaints of aesthetics and hypersensitivity.
  • TREATMENT: The patient came in complaining of hypersensitivity in one of his teeth. We informed him that due to over-brushing in this area, the gum has receded and exposed the root of his tooth hence the sensitivity. Restoration of this tooth was carried out and filling material was selected to match the natural colour. This patient was advised to maintain a good recall routine with our Hygienist to monitor his gums.
