Fracture of palatal wall

Unfortunately, after three years, the palatal wall of tooth 16 fractured. I therefore applied a rubber dam for isolation.

Roughening of fractured tooth

I then roughened the fractured tooth and lithium disilicate surfaces using a coarse diamond bur.

Etched and cleaned

Afterwards, I etched and cleaned the tooth and the lithium disilicate surfaces using phosphoric acid (GLUMA Etch 35 Gel), and rinsed them with water.

Silanisation with GLUMA Ceramic Primer

I then silanised the lithium disilicate surfaces with GLUMA Ceramic Primer. When doing so, it is important not to touch the dentine surface with the primer. The primer was air-dried after 20 seconds.

Application of GLUMA Bond Universal

In the next step, I applied GLUMA Bond Universal to the tooth surface and the lithium disilicate. After 20 seconds of active application, the adhesive was air-dried until the adhesive layer no longer moved. The adhesive was then light-cured for 10 seconds.

Building up fractured palatal tooth

Finally, I built up the fractured palatal tooth wall in three increments using Charisma Diamond. The restorations were then finished and polished.
