The patient was worried about his tooth continually thinning. In this case the gingival (gum) tissue had receded exposing the soft root tissue. This root tissue exposed was very prone to eroding and abrading inward. The treatment Dr. Hawryluk Jr. preformed in this case was direct bonding with composite resin. No drilling on the tooth was needed. No local anesthetic was used. The long term prognosis is excellent.
