Direct Bonding (White Spots)

White spots or blotches in teeth often seen in young people can be addressed with minor surface abrasion of the white area followed by layering of bonded material.

While in the case illustrated here there is still a slight discrepancy in shade between the two front teeth, due to one being significantly darker before bonding, the overall effect of elimination of the spots and minor re-contouring of the longer tooth, creates symmetry and improved appearance done inexpensively in a few minutes without anesthesia.

Should the patient desire further lightening so the front teeth match exactly, that is easily accomplished.

      Good News!  Per updated guidelines from the ADA, CDA, California DPH and Dr Maggie Park, Director of San Joaquin County Dept of Public Health, we are now able to resume elective dental care, and we anticipate starting elective care appointments on June 8th.  It’s been a long 2 and a half months for all of you and all of us.  The updated and quite specific  guidelines will keep everyone safe while we get back to caring for people.  We will ask Covid-related questions before your appointment,  we will meter and separate patients in the office,  and we will ask you to wear masks or other face coverings when entering and leaving.   
       A lot will be different, but one thing will clearly be the same: Our entire team’s commitment to be considerate of your needs, careful in your care, and detail-minded when protecting you from infections.  Dental offices have always been concerned and proactive in protecting patients and staff from pathogens that have always been around.  Rest assured, you are safe in our office because we are, down to a person, committed infection-control fanatics.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
