Can You Have Composite Veneers On Your Bottom Teeth
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length and resulting in an improved appearance. They can be made from porcelain or ...Read more
I just had 3 front teeth with veneers replaced with crowns i didn't notice till i came home that one has a translucent line @ bottom.What should I do?
See Dentist Again: There's really only one thing you can do: see your dentist again and tell him/her that you're concerned about the translucent line. In most cases, dentists spend a lot of time and effort trying to re-create the fine lines and areas of translucency of natural teeth in their restorations...That's probably what this is. However, it may also be something else. Only your dentist can tell you for sure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can porcelain veneers help with small teeth? My front bottom teeth are very small, and i would like them to be normal size. Would i choose porcelain veneers for this?
Not sure...: I would visit with a well-respected dentist found by online reviews or by direct referral from a trusted friend who has veneers. Perhaps orthodontics is an option. Perhaps veneers. Perhaps crowns. An exam by a respected and experienced dentist can provide a great answer to your specific concerns. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you get a veneer placed over just 1 tooth? My front bottom tooth is slightly chipped and bonding keeps falling off. Is 1 veneer a good option then
Possibly : Each situation must be evaluated individually. It's very important to figure out if it keeps breaking due to material failure of the bonding or due to other factors such as night grinding or Clenching. A simple habit like fingernail biting can also break bonding and veneers. Teeth are not tools. They are not to open bags of chips, nailclippers, icecruchers,thread cutters, etc. Good luck ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe: Eroded teeth are more difficult to bond to and composite will pick up stains over time. While often less expensive than porcelain veneers, they can lose their shine from the same thing that caused your erosion. Make sure you find out what caused the erosion before starting a cosmetic procedure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can composite resin applied to natural front teeth look nice and shiny as porcelin (want to avoid veneers and chalky look, if possible) when it dries?
Depends: Depends on your expectations, and long term goals, be aware that composites do change color and stain over time, they are not as durable as lab made veneers, but with a great cosmetic dentist who layers the resin and tints, and applies opalescence and proper translucencies, they can look just as nice as an exceptional ceramist lab made veneer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
People who grind or clench their teeth may not be the best candidates for veneers. Would composite resin sometimes be an option to fill some gaps?
Composite resins : Can be used very effectively and are easy to repair if needed. The more important issue here is your grinding / clenching. Have a custom made occlusal guard or bite opening appliance made. Also concerned taft your grinding might be causing attrition and loss of vertical dimension. A much greater problem down the road. Consult with your dentist or a prosthodontist. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tooth veneers are for life and composite resin to fill in the top teeth triangular space, as gums recedes, maintains more of the natural teeth?
Compare a composite veneer to a porcelin veneer? Can cheaper composite be just as good? Why shave down good natural teeth vs. Fill in black triangles?
Night and day: Either may be the perfect choice for you. It really depends upon the specific circumstances and your expectations. In some cases a well placed bonded filling may provide excellent esthetics and last for 5-10 years, while in some cases a well fabricated veneer is the only way to achieve the best esthetics and function for 10 years +. Tooth reduction can be minimal in many cases. No one best answer ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
