This particular patient had an existing amalgam filling with a fracture from the central groove to the distal ridge. We advised for strength and long term cosmetics a porcelain onlay was the best choice. Patient agreed so here is a before, and an after of the temporary onlay. The temporary was too light in color but gave us some good contrast for our pictures. The final restoration will appear more natural and blend with the natural dentition. I will post a picture of the final restoration. Thanks again for looking.

The obvious amalgam filling that is failing with micro leakage and recurrent decay was removed and restored with a composite build-up and strengthened with a porcelain crown fused to a high noble metal base. Thanks for looking! thornefamilydentistry.com
