Dental Bonding

I recently had some boding work done to three front teeth and the dentist chose a shade that is too dark. He mentioned this when we finished and asked me to come back. Will he have to start all over again on all three teeth, or will he be able to lighten them in a quicker way that is effective? What process is used to lighten bonding that is the incorrect shade?

Nope, no way to lighten bonding. It has to be done over again.

The answer is an unfortunate no. None of the bleach, baking soda, whitening strips, etc. out there would have any effect on your dental bonding material. The only way out is for you to have it removed and filled all over again. Good luck!
