In bonding and sculpting we can literally change your teeth's size, shape and colour
in just ONE appointment! Composite Bonding is the big dental secret that not
many people know of. We can literally repair any chip or defect with this magic
Many times we can simplyremove or polish some enamel(enamel plasty) away
if teeth are too wide, too long or simply uneven.
Care is taken to stay within the 'safe' parameters and to still leave enough
enamel intact. This can easily provide sufficient correction to
change the smile to a more harmonious and 'even' look! Most esthetic
procedures will involve to some extent some contouring.
Another useful application is the closure of gaps (diastemas) between front teeth.
Most of the time NO local anesthetic is needed and existing enamel is left
untouched. Many patients have gaps between their front teeth and
are unaware of just how easy it is to create an amazing smile!
As in the photo, the gap (diastema) was closed in just 1 visit!
Due to the amazing properties of Composite, composite bonding can be used
to repair almost any chip, crack or defect on teeth or existing dental work!
