What happens if I use super-glue for a paper cut, for bonding the skin together?

What happens if I use super-glue for a paper cut, for bonding the skin together?

Superglue: Superglue was used by trauma surgeons in vietnam to glue the edges of lacerated livers together (ever try to sew liver?). Works great. It also works perfectly fine in normal skin wounds, and is non-toxic. The only reason it hasn't been approved by the fda for this purpose is that the studies would cost millions, and who's going to pay them? Superglue has long since passed off-patent. ...Read more

If i wanted to raise the levels of my bottom teeth, how little can they raise it with bonding.

If i wanted to raise the levels of my bottom teeth, how little can they raise it with bonding.

Is it due to wear, poor occlusion (bite), fracture, malformed teeth, etc? We really can't give you a good answer to your question without actually examining you. Consult with your own dentist who can give you a complete and thorough answer. ...Read more

I have a bad connection with my parents. We always quarreling. One day we all lost it and I asked my dad to go die out of a fit of rage. How to bond?

Most parents,: fortunately, realize that their immature children are impulsive and say things they don't really mean. So I really wouldn't worry that your father will carry out your suggestion. But you can bring healing by apologizing and telling them you love them and want a closer relationship. Plan an outing for all of you that all will enjoy. NO FIGHTING during this. Do this once a week; things will improve. ...Read more

Can you get a veneer placed over just 1 tooth? My front bottom tooth is slightly chipped and bonding keeps falling off. Is 1 veneer a good option then

Can you get a veneer placed over just 1 tooth? My front bottom tooth is slightly chipped and bonding keeps falling off. Is 1 veneer a good option then

Possibly : Each situation must be evaluated individually. It's very important to figure out if it keeps breaking due to material failure of the bonding or due to other factors such as night grinding or Clenching. A simple habit like fingernail biting can also break bonding and veneers. Teeth are not tools. They are not to open bags of chips, nailclippers, icecruchers,thread cutters, etc. Good luck ...Read more
