This 16 year-old came to our office for a second opinion on her dark front tooth. The tooth suffered an injury when she was younger and has had a root canal. Instead of having to grind anything off of the front, or put something over it to mask it, we were able to whiten the tooth from the inside out. It’s a process called internal whitening.

This 14 year-old girl was so excited to finally get her braces off to reveal her beautiful new smile. However, there was one thing left to do to truly finish her smile. One of her lateral incisors (right next to her front teeth) was undersized. This is a common tooth that can be smaller than ideal. Cosmetic bondingcan be done to make teeth the correct size or to close gaps. This procedure can be completed in just one visit.
