Whether to put the dental cement where the gum line is receeded

By Carol 8/14/2010 10:01:32 AM
In 1979 I had braces put on my teeth. A few years back my dentist added cement to the side of the front bottom tooth because I have receding gum lines. I lost my retainer that I had on my teeth since 1979 in January 2010 and now the extra cement that was added on fell off. My tooth is still intact but the gum is now lower because when the dentist put the cement on he pushed the gum down further. Do I need to get this repaired right away?

It is difficult to comment on this with out seeing the case. You have to visit the dentist but as you have metioned that because of the cement the gum line is further receeded then it should not be put if there is no decay. If esthetically it does not look nice then you can thinkof other options like veneers. for more info on cosmetic dentistry you can visit the following link on our website......
