Dental veneer problems

(8 Posts)

I'm having a nightmare with my veneers.
I have 4 veneers on my front teeth, 1 of which has fallen off 3 times in the past 10 years.
Problem is the backs of my teeth have gone very discoloured and enamel worn away.
I'm fed up with them and it's really getting me down.

I brush 3 times a day and my other teeth aren't like this.

What happened and what can I do to fix? sad

I would complain. I have had veneers on my front teeth since 1988. My dentist and I have a standing joke that they are older than the dental nurse.

I wish I could have my original childhood teeth back for a second chance - this time I would go easy on the sweets and squash drinks, I would brush properly, I would introduce myself to flossing and interdental brushes and ask for twice yearly cleans with the hygienist. Oh if only...

Why is it a problem that the back f your teeth look like that? It is almost certainly just staining that could be cleaned off by a hygienist. That's what the back of teeth seem to look like for a number of reasons.

For the life of me, I can't see what warrants a complaint... your dentist isn't doing anything to the back of your teeth?

I agree with Mrsmorton - why on earth would this warrant a complaint?

Sorry I meant complain about the veneer falling off not the staining.
