The Best Text Ever From a Fellow Dentist: Anterior Composite Bonding

by  CFAD Blog Editor
An Awesome Thank You Text from a Dentist Friend

My heart is so full! This is one of my favorite texts ever!

Back in 2018, I wrote an article for Spear Education about how to do beautiful anterior composite bonding.  You can read the article here.

Traditional composite bonding leaves a visible line between the natural tooth and composite.  Using my technique, we blend the tooth’s natural shades and opacities to create a seamless transition (so that you can’t see the restoration).  Check out our composite work here.

Today I received a text from a dental school friend who tried the technique and loved it! I feel so happy that now his patients also get to have gorgeous teeth too!

Thanks for sharing your success, Dr. David Gordon!

Ryan after Composite Bonding

This poor dude fell at the skate park and was scared about what would happen next. He picked up the piece of his lower tooth and thankfully we were able to glue that sucker back on! We restored the other chipped teeth with some composite bonding and voila! Back to the skate park in an hour!
