This is #30 DO replacing a 10 year old completely worn out Heliomolar composite with a chip and decay at the distal marginal ridge. It's not beyond my imagination that this really needs a crown, but we've been discussing wear rates of composites so this will give us some info. I used Heliomolar for a long time prior to using Exquisite Restoration by Apex Dental Materials. Heliomolar is a microfill and for many years was the "gold standard" for wear rates of composites. All companies compared their products wear rates to Heliomolar, and rarely came close. Exquisite Restoration exceeds that.
I'm really happy that we're being bold enough to do these huge composites rather than place crowns on everything. Thanks goes to the guys at Apex Dental Materials for developing these great materials that are effective, easy to use and don't cost an arm and a leg. Hope you all get to try these procedures.
