With time, can bone grafts be used to fully restore bone levels around one's teeth?

Increasing Bone Support
Whereas in some instances, bone can be grafted and placed in order to build up bone, it cannot be done in order to build up bone height across teeth. If there is a defect (hole) around a tooth, the bone can fill up to the height of the defect. Bone can't be placed on top of bone in order to gain more support for a tooth or teeth, even if it's done a little at a time.
