If you feel self-conscious about minor imperfections such as gaps, cracks, and dental discoloration, Dr. Crawford and Dr. Leishman can perform dental bonding to improve the appearance of your smile. During this cosmetic dentistry treatment, we can apply a tooth-colored resin to the front of your teeth to conceal dental flaws and improve the structure of your teeth.
