Amalgam Replacement with Composite Resin
This patient came with a chief complain of food retention on lower right first molar that had been filled/restored with amalgam filling around the years of 2012/2013. The feeling of the food snug into the cavity is sensitive and discomfort. Xray examination showed a radiolucencies under amalgam filling.

After taking proper consent, i started my dental treatment. First, I remove the bulk amalgam filling, dig out the secondary caries, then put low_shrinkage_stress flowable composite resin Filtek_BulkFill (3M) as a dentin replacement, followed with Ceram_X_one shades a3 (A3/D3) (Dentsply). Then taking evaluative radiograph with VistaRay 7.1 (Durr) at 60kV, 3mA, 0,03s, we can see the intact margin, homogeneous body of the restoration, and different radiopacity between two composites.
Hope this treatment will be long last
