Closing a diasthema (gap) with composite (bonding)


This college student arrived just as I was closing the office. He fractured his tooth while playing basketball. He needed immediate help & wondered what could be done NOW. An hour later he was out the door with a hand-sculpted composite veener.


This boy & his parents arrived unannounced. Their son had fallen while riding his bike. After calming the parents more than the patient, a tooth-colored filling proved to be all that was needed to make everyone smile again.
