Toe Nail Reconstruction - Prosthetic Toe Nail

Damaged ToenailMerriefield Podiatry now offers a treatment for damaged or unsightly nails. Wilde-Pedique is a cosmetic procedure using layers of a flexible gel containing anti-fungal properties which bonds to your old nail. The gel is built up in layers and is cured. There is no damage to the nail. The gel is non-porous which helps prevent the spread of fungus. The gel nail grows out with your new nail. It can be cut, filed and painted as if it is your real nail. The new nail will last approximately 6 weeks depending on the underlying condition.
