For this procedure, Dr. Noble will place a small amount of putty-like composite resin directly onto your teeth. He’ll use special tools to mold it into the ideal shape, then harden it in place with a special ultraviolet curing light so that it bonds with your enamel. The material is customized to match the hue of your natural pearly whites, so it blends in seamlessly for a perfect finish.

This method is frequently used to address problems like:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Both internal and external stains that may not respond to traditional whitening
  • Minor gaps or spaces
  • Overly small or worn-down teeth
