Bonding for Crowns: My crowned teeth in the front have developed a space between them.
I want to know if caps can be bonded. My own teeth had originally been bonded and I loved them. Can bonding material be put on crowns to close the space?
The crowns are fairly new and I would like to avoid the time and cost of new crowns if the space could be eliminated with bonding. ...Visitor from NJ
Bonding to porcelain crown material in the mouth is rarely successful. On front teeth where you'd desire optimum esthetics I wouldn't close the gap this way.
Redoing the crowns is one way to close this space however I'd be curious to investigate why your teeth seem to want to drift apart in this way.
