Even though the bone may appear to still be thin, you need to ask your dentist if there is currently enough bone to do what they were proposing to do.
There are times when a single grafting procedure is not enough and a second or even third procedure may need to be performed.

I hope you found this information helpful,

usually you can gain more width of the bone ridge is expanded,
also there are techniques to gain space.

You need to give a lot more information for any one to be able to answer.  What tooth, where was the graft, what was it done for, what is the final result you want to achieve???
