Six (6) Anterior Teeth Bonding

    Is it possible to have veneers put on teeth that have the roots exposed from gum surgery? I heard that it would not stick to the root area. I am beginning to think my only option for a nice smile would be dentures. I would think that in this day in age, there must be something out there to help people like me.

    I have a tooth missing from a root canal gone wrong, and they said I can't have a bridge because the teeth next to it aren't strong enough to hold the bridge, and not enough bone left for an implant. Isn't there anyway to have some bone replaced or use some kind of epoxy or something. I feel so doomed to never open my mouth again. I would appreciate any information you may have. ....Mary Lou in OH

    Mary Lou, your best option is to get an opinion from professionals who know what they are doing, and it sounds like you haven't been seeing one. In Toledo there is a great place called Medical College of Ohio. They have a dental department with many good experts on staff. Start there.

    I would highly advise you to stick to your guns and save your teeth. Bone grafting is usually possible if you have lost bone density, as long as your health is in good order. Veneers can always be placed over roots as long as the dentist knows the latest techniques. Sometimes it's the main reason we put them in! If finances are not a main concern, you have many options and wonderful technology to work for you. If finances are a problem you have to consider that bone grafts and implants can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
