I had some dental bonding done on a front tooth, but I am unhappy with it. Is there a way I can have my dentist take it off and re-do it?

Yes, dental bonding is easy to have removed. It just requires a special sandpaper that takes it right down to the tooth. I wouldn’t recommend having the same dentist re-do it. Chances are if you were unhappy the first time, you’ll be unhappy again. Cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty, so there are large varieties of both qualifications and artistic skill when it comes to dentists who do cosmetic procedures. I’d look for someone who is AACD accredited (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry). Any dentist with accredited status with this organization will have the highest level of skill when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. It’s better to pay a little more for someone more qualified and only have to do it once, then to have to re-do it several times.
