Peruse it: Most dentists will re-do work within a reasonable length of time. If the bonding was done within a year, you should ask.

Other things needed: Answer the question, " why do my teeth need bonding on the back?" , and you will find the real problem. How did they get so worn? Lack of back teeth, grinding your teeth, & large fillings in the teeth are just a few reasons why bonding fails. Treat the whole mouth, not just the smile area for success.
