Receding gums

10/24/2008

Question:

my dentist has recommended tooth bonding as a treatment for receding gumline, even though I do not suffer from much sensitivity. The procedure is supposed to prevent the roots from being exposed further. Do you recommned this?

Answer:

I recommend tooth bonding if there is loss of tooth structure or indentations on the sides of the teeth toward the gumline.
