This is an older shot, (that's my wife's arm around my neck). In this shot - you can see the situation I have had all my life.
In the smile, you notice that dark spot. It is the root canal I had as a child! In the grand scheme of things, my smile
migrated from this shot to the bottom shot in a period of about three years. It could have been done sooner, but my
dentist - to his credit, wanted to be sure in his professional opinion that this was the way to go!
I found this top picture of me at a friend's wedding, It is after the bonding. I had eaten some food and drank a lot of
coffee just prior to this shot, so the teeth are a little off color... the second shot shows how the bonding looks better over
