Dental Bonding? (photo)

You can get it removed .... #DrSarahThompson
I would suggest porcelain veneers to fix the problem, instead of having the bonding redone. The bonding can always be taken off, so there's no worries there. If your tooth was filed down at all, then that tooth will remain like that, unless you cover it with more bonding or a veneers.
Get lab made restorations if you want them perfect
The dentist didn't do a bad job. The problem was the tooth was not in the correct position and the doctor did their best to fill in the gap and make it look as natural as possible. If you really want it perfect, you should get crowns or veneers on the front two teeth. The lab will make both teeth look identical. Removing the bonding will make it look worse in my opinion.
Can bonding be removed? Will my tooth look the same?
The bonding can be removed, but since there was some reduction of your tooth, it may not look the same. Tell your dentist that you are unhappy with the result, and she should be able to remove some or all of the bonding, and redo it so the two teeth are the same size. If she can't or won't do it, then find a new dentist with artistic skills....it should not be difficult to correct the problem.!
