Issues with permanent #veneers #DrSoftTouch
I'm sorry to hear that you don't love your veneers. It sounds like you have some real concerns with your recent dental work. Unfortunately, the wait and see approach is not the best to take in your case. I would recommend speaking with your dentist about your concerns, so your veneers can be remade to your liking. I always tell people to judge the dentist on the quality of the before and after photos of his/her actual patients. This will give you a pretty good indication about what you can expect. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

I do not know how your teeth looked before placement of the veneers, but they obviously did not give you the result you were hoping to achieve. Unfortunately, the spacing between your teeth will not improve and the dark edges and darkness inside of the veneers will not improve and may get worse as time goes by. In order to close those large spaces between your teeth, full all porcelain crowns would be a better choice of restoration. This will allow for better design to close the spaces, eliminate the dark areas of concern, and to correct the crookedness of number 9. If you proceed in this direction, your temporary crowns should give you a good idea of how the final crowns will look and feel. You should not have any final restorations permanently cemented until you are completely satisfied and approve them. I would recommend advising your dentist of your concerns and dissatisfaction with the results. If he/she offers to redo and you are comfortable, than you should proceed. If he/she fails to offer to redo, advise him/her that you will be going for a second opinion and that you would like a refund payable to the dentist that will be replacing the veneers. Your smile is extremely important for your self image/ self esteem. Do not be discouraged, but do not accept the unsatisfactory result that you now have. Your goal should be to be happy and proud of your smile. Good luck!!!
