Some of Dr. LeSage's posterior work.
Christian has recurrent decay around an old amalgam restoration on his upper right first molar. On the right, the amalgam and the decay have been removed and Dr. LeSage has restored the tooth with composite.
There are failing amalgam restorations on all three of these teeth. On the right, Dr. LeSage has restored them with composites.
Kenneth’s second molar, besides having an existing amalgam, is severely decayed. Rather than do a crown, Dr. LeSage restored the entire chewing surface with composite.
There is recurrent decay around this old, corroded amalgam restoration. Dr. LeSage replaced it with a ceramic onlay.
Onlay on Lower Molar
This patient has old, corroded amalgam restorations on two teeth on the upper left. The first molar has an existing composite and new decay. Dr. LeSage has placed a ceramic inlay on the premolar and restored the two molars with composite.
Upper Left Quadrant
The amalgam restoration on this lower right molar has been replaced with a ceramic onlay.
Lower Right Molar
These three teeth have failing gold restorations. On the right, Dr. LeSage has replaced them with ceramic onlays.
This lower molar has a failing composite restoration. Dr. LeSage replaced it with a ceramic inlay.
Inlay on Lower Molar
Nicole has old, broken-down composites on her lower right molars. On the right, Dr. LeSage has replaced these with new composite restorations.
Ali needs restorations on three back teeth on her lower left. On our left is the teeth before any preparation has been made. Above on the right, some of the undermined tooth structure has been removed, showing the extent of the decay. The dark areas as well as the frosty enamel are decay.
(case continued below)
(Ali’s case, continued)
On the left, all the decay has been removed, the second molar has been filled with composite, the first molar has been prepared to receive a ceramic onlay, and the second premolar has been prepared to receive a ceramic inlay. On the right, all the restorations have been completed.
Dr. LeSage has replaced failing amalgams on these three teeth with a ceramic inlay on the second molar and ceramic onlays on the first molar and premolar.
Upper Right Quadrant
This tooth of John’s has an old, corroded amalgam that has been replaced with a composite restoration.
Manny had a failing onlay on his upper right, which Dr. LeSage has replaced with a new, CAD-CAM produced CEREC onlay.
Carl has an old amalgam restoration that needs to be replaced. Dr. LeSage has done that with a composite. On the right is the twelve-year postoperative view.
All three of these teeth have failing amalgam restorations. Dr. LeSage restored the premolar and first molar with composite and placed a ceramic onlay on the second molar.
Christian has new decay on this upper left molar with an existing amalgam restoration. On the right, the amalgam and the decay have been removed and Dr. LeSage has restored the tooth with an anatomically correct composite restoration.
On the left is an old amalgam restoration. On the right, Dr. LeSage has replaced it with a composite.
Liss has amalgam restorations on these two molars that are chipped, corroded, and leaking. Dr. LeSage has restored the teeth with ceramic onlays using biomimetic principles.
Dr. LeSage has replaced this corroded, leaking, fractured amalgam restoration with a laboratory-processed composite onlay.
There was new decay on both of these molars. Dr. LeSage cleaned out the decay and placed new ceramic inlays.
