I have black triangles that developed after some orthodontics. I read online that this can be fixed with dental bonding but my dentist is insisting this is a bad idea. I don’t want to leave these holes so what can I say to convince him? I’ve tried showing him an article about it and he really still doesn’t think it is a good idea.
While you are correct that dental bonding will be a good solution for this, I would not push him into this. When a dentist tries to steer a patient away from a procedure, it is usually because they are not qualified to do it but do not want their patient to lose confidence in them.
This is an advanced, tricky procedure to do. In your place, I am going to suggest you see a dentist with the training necessary to do it. The dentists with proven skills and training are AACD accredited. There are other excellent cosmetic dentists as well, but these have already been tested so you know what you are getting into. If I were in your position. That would be the dentist I’d use.
If you are interested in whitening your teeth. Make certain you do it before you have any bonding done. The color can’t be changed on the bonding after it is done, so you want any color matching to be done with the color you are going to keep.
