Has anyone had this? I have gaps between my top front teeth which have always bothered me and I mentioned this to my dentist this week. She said I could have bonding with white filling on them to close the gaps and I could book in for a session to try it out. She also said sometimes it makes the teeth look too big and some patients end up not having it done permanently.
I'm tempted to give it a go but would love to hear about others experiences.
Hi I had my front teeth crowned to improve my smile, they were made to close a gap and were slightly shorter than the previous set I'd had done on NHS 15 years ago. I also had my teeth whitened. I love my teeth now.
I've had that done to fill a gap between my front teeth. Its been very successful. I was warned it might not last but I've had it replaced twice in 27 years so no complaints there. The colour won't lighten so if you've ever considered whitening your teeth, do it first and get the bonding to match.
I have bonding on 4 of my front top teeth to fill in gaps/even my smile. Had it done 3 years ago and never had any problems apart from slight discolouration where the bonding meets my actual teeth. Because of this I am saving up for proper ceramic veneers. However for the price of the ones I have, I can't complain. Didn't hurt at all either!
My daughter (14) had exactly the same gap and hated it. Got teased at school about it. The dentist offered to do the same and it looks amazing. He left a very slight gap between them just in case the gap closes up any naturally as she grows. But overall she loves her teeth now. You wouldn't even know, it isn't noticeable at all. She had the filling about a year ago and has had no issues at all. Do what makes you happy I say
Thanks all, I think I'll make that appointment. I must admit I had not realised it was possible and thought I would have to have a brace. It will be nice to do something about them as they have bugged me for years.
Please don't have veneers on perfectly healthy teeth. I have a veneer on one front tooth and I wish wish wish my mother had never agreed to it when I was a teenager. By all means have the bonding but please don't have veneers.
