Getting Veneers Process Question

Postby ravagesoftime » Sat Aug 30, 2014 6:45 pm

The last few years or so, my teeth have really yellowed. I've stopped trying to whiten them, because it just doesn't work.

Here's the thing, I love the shape of my teeth. Just not the color. I just hate shaving them down. But if I have to, what if any, are the repercussions???

How long do they spend shaving each tooth?

After you have the shaving done, how does your mouth feel, later when you go home? Is there pain or soreness?

Do veneers fall off?

How do you feel when they are actually shaving the tooth down? Do you have regrets?

I have read that "Lumineer is a brand name for veneers done by a company called Denmat. They promote the technique as one which does not remove any tooth structure but simply places the veneers over the existing teeth as they are. It is a great technique for certain cases. No prep veneers would be a compromised result in your situation I believe as you have uneven widths, a slanted midline, and the one tooth on the right front is much more prominent. Some conservative tooth reduction in key areas would allow a much better result. A good cosmetic dentist shares your concern about tooth removal but if you are going to make this investment you want the best result possible'.

Hope this information helps you..

Thanks for sharing...
