1.1 needed the review of the old endo treatment

Fig. 3

After the removal of the old composite veneer a new build up is done with a fiber glass post on 1.1. Because of its deep dyschromia and for the huge palatal abrasions a full crown was preferred to a veneer. All the decays were removed and new composite fillings were done.
