I just had my teeth bonded and the dentist picked a color

Customer Question

I just had my teeth bonded and the dentist picked a color that is too dark. Can this be fixed?

In a word, yes!

What I would recommend, is if you are certain the color needs to be changed, is to call the Dental office and "calmly" explain the situation... make an appointment, and be prepared to tell your Dentist you need (if you do need it) and want them changed. The color can be changed. But sometimes, things (teeth included) look differently in different light. So, decide "with your Dentist", what you want, and then have that color or shade to replace, if you deem another color better. I hope this helps you.
