Question:
Tooth Bonding: I have gum recession and spaces between my lower teeth.

I want to have bonding done, but 3 different dentists have said no!!! Why can I not have this done?

They do bonding between spaced teeth all the time. I am frustrated. ... Visitor from PA

Answer:
You are probably requesting services that don't represent a "standard of care" that is defined by the state dental board that licenses those dentists.

Simply follow up on the recommendations that address the cause of these issues. If the economics of treatment are causing you to ask for a "short cut", apply for services at your local or state dental school(s).

Although it dental care may take a little longer to complete, treatment expenses at many state supported dental schools are a fraction of what private practice dentists may charge.
