I have gaps in my front teeth and I wanted to close the gaps but I don’t want to get braces so I thought of tooth bonding but I was told I was to young for that. I am 20 years old. my question is, is it true I am to young for bonding?

This sounds suspiciously like an excuse from a general dentist who can’t admit he or she is uncomfortable doing cosmetic dentistry.
No, there is no such thing as being too young for tooth bonding. If you’re old enough to sit still in the chair, you’re old enough for tooth bonding.
But I would recommend having your tooth bonding done by an expert cosmetic dentist, such as we have listed on our site.
