One visit Cosmetic Bonding...

A patient named Wendy came in for her regular biannual check up.  After chatting and asking her if she had any concerns she wanted me to address she told me she'd really like to fix her "fang" teeth.  Lots of people seem to call them that, but dentists call them "cuspids" or cainine teeth.  In any case, often they appear pointy and it can detract from an otherwise wonderful smile.  pointed looking cuspids can easily be improved  Wendy asked me if I could "file them down".  Well to file them down enough to make a difference could cause very sensitive teeth and worsen her smile.  I suggested instead of removing tooth, we add some composite resin- the tooth coloured filling material dentists use.  Wendy was also concerned about the appearance after the bonding was in place.  So I showed her on a computer what I had in mind.   I used the picture you see above and altered it on screen so she could see what I had in mind.  She liked what she saw and so agreed to go ahead. 

I do lots of these minor cosmetic improvements and patients really like them because there is no discomfort, no anaesthetic required and it's done in one visit with immediate results.  one visit cosmetic bonding makes a suble but important improvementThe photos here are her acutal teeth and not computer generated. 

Wendy loved the result and I got a great big hug.  Made my day!
