Composite bondings – Re-do of another office’s procedure

Background/ situation: Patient was born with aberrant teeth shape and size and had bondings performed in another office a few years ago. She was not satisfied with the outcome and wanted to redo the procedure to yield a more natural look.

Solution: We recommended striping off existing bondings and applying new bondings that would have a more natural shape, color and texture.

Single tooth bonding

Background/ situation: A young patient was born with an aberrant tooth size and shape. His parents were motivated to take action to restore the child’s confidence and smile but wanted a conservative treatment option.

Solution: We recommended a single tooth bonding that restored function and natural form to the tooth resulting in a natural look.

Bonding is the application of composite resin material to the existing tooth.  Bonding is used for filling cavities, masking discolored teeth, whitening, repairing fractures, and making cosmetic improvements to the natural tooth usually in one appointment.  Composite bonding may be a treatment option for you if you have white or brown spots or staining due to excessive wear or silver fillings, are not a heavy smoker or coffee drinker. This is a less invasive and more cost effective option to porcelain veneers but does require some upkeep. Dr Kuljic and Dr Mandic are happy to discuss both option

Often used in cosmetic procedures, bonding uses composite resin to fix chipped, cracked, spaced, or uneven teeth.  The resin is applied to the natural tooth to achieve the desired esthetic effect.  Very little natural tooth reduction is necessary and usually no anesthesia is needed.
