    I unfortunately, have some erosion - at the back of the lower teeth - in the middle, which is causing me great concern as I have literally feel it getting worse.
    My dentist has suggested - bonding - but this dentist has used the bonding on this problem, last autumn, and it did not work, and dropped out within a day.
    Is there a new product that has been developed.....is there any new research.....will I have to travel to the US, to get this problem fixed !
    Sadly, I feel it may have been caused by fruit teas & effervescent vitamin C, in my 50's.
    I have mentioned to my dentist, my main objective is to keep my teeth, and have followed his advice of flossing twice a day, and brushing with an electric tooth brush - twice a day.
    UK based.

    Xrays at least will be necessary. Photos would be slight help if you can get reasonable ones. For someone of your age, fillings may work, or crowns/onlays could be an option. Much depends upon the state of these particular teeth and the rest of your teeth.
