This tooth needs a crown. It has a large filling on the one side. The other side is broken. And, there is a cavity on the front. Problem is that the patient cannot afford a crown. So, we gave it a try with just filling material.
Here is the tooth after we got done. It looks very good and is functional. If the patient uses it only for light to moderate chewing it should last for a while.
