Replace Porcelain Veneers if Gums Are Pulling Away? (photo)
I've had porcelain veneers on top front teeth for 13 yrs; the gums have started pulling away recently and I can now see the margins. My dentist saw no signs of gum disease and said it's a natural reaction to foreign material of the porcelain, or just aging. I had receding gums on the bottom as a child and needed surgery. I brush twice a day with Sonicare, floss, use no-alcohol mouthwash. The dentist has recommended replacing the veneers to cover the margins, but what about the gums?
