Tooth Bonding to Treat Gum Recession

Nov 15, 2010
Best answers
I am experiencing gum inflammation and recession. The dentist found I needed a deep cleaning and in certain areas the gum recession was due to brushing too hard. The hygienist performed a root scaling and the gums appear to be improved. The dentist has scheduled bonding to several teeth to fill pockets less than a week after the root scaling. Is this a proper course of treatment or are there other options to treat the promote growth in the gums fill the pockets and re-attach to the teeth?

If the bonding is the recommended treatment, how should this procedure be performed and how much time should be spent for each tooth?
