Hello everyone,

I hope someone can help me w/ this. I will try to be brief cause its a long story.

My second molar #15 upper left had a root canal improperly done -without a crown- in 2013 (Brazil).
This tooth has 4 roots, the doctor did only 2 correct, the third she broke an instrument inside and the fourth was missed!

Mid 2018 I started having pain on this tooth again, went to a dentist in Michigan and he didnt catch a thing on the x-rays. He recommended a crown because it didnt had one. I did a gold crown w/ him and had to adjust the bite about 4-5x times due pain that was still there. I felt scammed but eventually the pain went away.

Until it came back extremely painful this last week.

This time I went to good Odonto and he found out all this crazy stuff that was going on. I had to redo the root canal. He drilled throught the gold crown and perfectly removed the broken instrument and all the pus/bacteria on the fourth root (I could smell it, was disgusting). Redoing all 4 roots.

OK. finally fixed properly, he added a temporary filling (I guess this is normal) and sent me to a general dentist for a permanent filling. I did it right away -just 2 days after root canal procedure- and those are the pics of my gold crown with the final/permanent filling.

My question is:
Does this looks ok? which material is this? resin? is it strong enough for a molar w gold crown?

Reason of those questions is that I didnt felt much confidence on this doctor (I relocated so its a new dentist) she seemed to be learning and stopped for brief moments like she was thinking what to do next...

thank you!

Nice picture so even if the top of the crown has a hole and looks rough as long as the margins are good and you don't have a food impaction problem then a repair filling would be fine. It could be composite or amalgam.
