Dear Dr Butt I have a gap in my front teeth which has happened over the last three years due to a problem with my gums. I have asked my dentist if he could fill the gap and on the last visit he said he could fill it with bonding. He wouldn’t advise veneers or porcelain as they would be too heavy and may weaken the tooth as the density of the bone had diminished due to the gum disease. I visited him today and he now advises that I dont have the bonding done as he feels the gum is still inflamed. I am really upset as this gap looks ugly. Please can you advise if there is a way round this or do I have to put up with this gap for the rest of my life? I am 58 years of age. Kind regards.
