Composite Bonding Glasgow Southside
In an initial consultation, your teeth will be thoroughly examined, and you will be listened to, in order to find out what improvements to your teeth you would like to see. Occasionally, your dentist will need to correct oral health issues, such as gum disease or tooth decay, before cosmetic dentistry can start. Once a healthy mouth has been achieved, your dentist can begin the smile-enhancing process. We also offer virtual consultation options.
