Peg Lateral.

This was an interesting case.
This patient's lateral incisors were what we call, pegged. 
When you have a Peg Lateral your lateral incisor 
is much small then it should be. 
We also had additional spacing issues with the canine. 

So we went ahead and did some bonding. 
This allowed us to close the space with minimal financial burden
and still left open the possibility of crowning the tooth later
on if the patient decided that bonding wasn't enough.

This procedure can be done with most any gap in the mouth
and is not simply limited to the fixing of peg laterals.
