I've hated them for pretty much my entire adult...
I've hated them for pretty much my entire adult life for many reasons. Although I am very grateful for having pretty straight and healthy teeth overall, these two tiny teeth bothered me. It made me self conscious to smile but I would anyway. I always had a fear they would break since they were so tiny. And food easily gets stuck in between the gaps they cause. After lots of research and careful consideration, I've decided to get porcelain veneers to correct them. I am going to have my first consultation tomorrow. Once I make my decision on who I chose, I will update this with more information and hopefully help others in their journey :)
Consultation on 12/31/13
After careful consideration and researching lots of doctors over the past year, I was very happy with the responsiveness and knowledge of Dr. Richard Gochman. He had galleries of his other patients and I was very pleased on how he improved their smile with a very natural look. I had a consultation with him on 12/31/13. He and his entire staff were extremely friendly, gentle and attentive. It made my feel so much more confident and excited about going through with this! I'll be updating after I get fitted in a couple of weeks! :)
Temporaries Put In!
So today my dentist put in my temporaries. Didn't feel any pain since he numbed my gums with an injection (thats where the pain ends, its a big needle!) He shaped my peg laterals and used what I believe is a resin composite material. They look like regular teeth far away but you can tell when up close that they aren't. Pretty good for temps though. My natural color of my teeth are B1, which is the lightest shade on the Natural tooth color scale. Could have always gone for the super white bleached look but wanted natural looking teeth. My teeth are a lot whiter than this but this was the lighting in my bathroom, kind of dulls the color. I'll make sure my final pics are clear and true to color! :)
He said my porcelain veneers will look 10x times better. I will see him in two weeks to have the porcelain ones put in, so excited!
