Tyrannosaurus Rex Tooth Restoration


Recommended Posts

BellamyBlake

I obtained a nice Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth from the Lance Creek Formation of Wyoming. It was a good opportunity to try my hand at restoration. The tooth was around 80% complete, with some of the root missing and a dent near the tip. I only wanted to restore the latter part. Pretty good job, I think.

Nice work. 

As an added bonus, it is called the Lance Formation, not the Lance Creek Formation.

Nice repair.  I really think you have mostly a tooth crown and not much if any of the root.  The crown can decend  below the serrations.
