Nobody wants a “Black Spot”. Just ask Jack Sparrow.
And while this black spot is not nearly as dangerous to have, it’s still not good. This black spot is the result of cavity that has gone untreated for some time. The hope when we started this was that the cavity hadn’t gotten into the nerve.
Luckily for patient X the cavity was not as deep as it could have been. We were able to get all of the decay out and simply place a filling. The color match turned out fantastic on this case and no one should ever know that a good portion of the tooth is not his own.
