Oh how cute, two little silver fillings

Mandibular 1st premolar with decay in the pits

 A lot of people have a lot of deep pits in their teeth that get lots of stain and are almost impossible to clean.  Eventually, these areas will trap enough stuff that bacteria will get in there and start eating away the tooth.  We did these as small as possible to keep the tooth strong as possible.

Tooth decay drilled out
Pits filled with amalgam and occlusion checked. So CUTE.
