4 veneers and having a hard time

I had bonding on my front teeth for over 20 years that had turn yellow over the last few years. My dentist told me bonding was old fashion and the new and improved way is veneers. I had my four front teeth veneered, and it has been terrible from day one. My original byte is gone, I cannot lock my lower teeth with my bottom teeth - I am told this is normal, is this true? Just last weekend while eating  I managed to byte down in such a way that my front tooth hit a bottom tooth with a lot of force! With my old byte, my teeth would had never been able to do this, now that I have veneers, I was able to unexpectedly smash my teeth with enough force that I could have broken the veneer or my bottom tooth... Don't know what to do... FM in SD

If the dentist who placed your veneers is saying everything is fine, and you don't feel comfortable with your bite, it might be worthwhile to visit another dentist for a second opinion.

Are other folks on this site having the same issue? I went back to the dentist and they say that's normal, that everyone with veneers will have their byte change because the bottom teeth should not touch/grind against the veneers. This was not explained to me, just wondering if others on this site have the same experience or am I being fed bad info by my dentist

I would encourage you to post that question on some of the other Veneer reviews. I'm sure others will be happy to share with you if/how much their bites changed.

Not sure what you mean by 'locking' your teeth...but your bite should not have changed very much just because you had veneers....your bite should have been perfected after your dentist placed the veneers on your teeth. My dentist spends a lot of time with getting my bite correct after every procedure and esp after my veneers were put on. So something is wrong with what your dentist did.

In my view may be the bite will change it because you don't have porcelain veneers if you don't have better consult the doctor as possible as fast for treatment of porcelain veneers. for more information please visit www.fairmontdentist.com
