Dental Bonding with a permanent retainer?

#1 Post by Erikab1033 »

I have looked everywhere for an answer to this question. My braces come off January 29th and my ortho informed me at my last visit that I will get a bonded top and bottom retainer and essix retainer that same day. I have a really small tooth in the front that I have to get bonded at the dentist but how is that gonna be possible if I have a permanent retainer on my front 6 teeth? Is it possible to get dental bonding with a permanent retainer on your top 6 teeth?

Permanent retainer is on the back of your teeth (inside your mouth). For bonding they "glue" veneers on the front and sculpt them from there.

Go on Google and write down "bonded retainer" and search for pictures..... ;) You will see how that looks like :)

im not getting veneers I'm getting dental bonding(composite resin) to build up a small tooth on my top arch and I will have a bonded retainer on the back of my top six teeth and I don't see how that would be possible to shape a tooth all the way around with a wire blocking you. I will probably just wait until I'm debanded next thursday and ask my ortho then.
