Should I get Veneers?

User Level:
Posted by: nbafinalist  (10 years ago)
Hello Doctor,

I hope you could enlighten me with this. The appearance of my teeth has been bugging me for a while now. I have worn them down from grinding and they are not looking good anymore. My dentist suggested Veneers. He said, he may not grind the teeth down too much anymore because of the wear and tear I have already done. Should I agree? How long will the Veneers last? I am also concerned that I will always have to have them because my teeth will be stubs. Any advice please? Thank you so much and kind regards.

Hello nbafinalist!

In this situation, via the web, it is difficult for me to recommend a specific treatment. You sound like you are unsure- rightfully so, as this is not an easy decision.

Maybe you could take a photo of your teeth and upload it here - that way I could have a look and suggest the appropriate course of action. Or you can get a few more opinions; ideally visit 2-3 dentists in your area and see what they have to say.

More heads means more ideas!
Liebe Grüße JB
