Minimally Invasive Dentistry


Patient presented with a small area of wear and chipping, and a microfracture on the incisal edge. In this case, a simple and conservative option is simply smoothing off the area with a very fine polishing disc. Because the reduction is less than 0.5mm, and the chipped tooth appears slightly longer, it makes a reductive approach the most minimal option.

The reduction was completed with no anesthetic and done with a very fine ortho disc, and polished with the blue Sof-Lex discs. The patient was very happy and the cost is very small, since this is a simple and inexpensive method to improve the look and feel of the incisal edges.
