Need advice on veneers

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: dentaljobz  (4 years ago)
I always loved to have Hollywood smile and used to whiten my teeth using whitening toothpaste. One of my friends says continuous use of it is not good for the tooth enamel and she suggested me to get veneers. I researched and saw mixed reviews about it, but was really happy to see many successful cases. I’m planning to get it from Centenary Dental Clinic in Scarborough. Before consultation I try hard to get more information regarding veneers. Has anyone here had done this? How was your experience with veneers?

Whitening toothpaste does not whiten teeth, nor does it wear off enamel.

Look, there is more to a "Hollywood smile" than the teeth. It is the drape of the lip and prominence of the premaxilla where the front teeth rest. No matter what is done dental, you won't have the smile of Juila Roberts, because:

1. You won't have the width of her mouth opening.
2. You won't have the drape of her upper lip.
3. You won't have the relative position of your pre maxilla to your cranial base that Julia has.

I always enough patients with undamaged teeth to improve the smile orthodontically, if possible.
If it is a tooth shape or wear problem, veneers can be done, AS LONG AS THE OVERBITE IS NOT EXCESSIVE. Deep bites will fracture veneers.

Veneers are much more conservative than crowns, but still require reduction of the front of the teeth. There is no going back.

If you have a deep bite, full crowns may be a more durable option. If you have grinding habits, full crowns may be a better option.

So you see, modifying a patient's smile can be very complex, and takes a lot of analysis and planning.
