I had to get crowns on my front teeth. My dentist also suggested getting veneers on four adjacent teeth on either side of my front teeth. I was anxious to remake my smile, so I agreed. Two days after they were put on one of them popped off. I went in and she told me it was because I was grinding my teeth. She made me a night guard, but then another one came off. She now says that I need crowns put on all the teeth because my bite is off. I’m pretty sad about that. Is she right, or should I get a second opinion?
I heartily recommend you get a second opinion. It is possible that your dentist is correct, but I suspect she is in over her head and is not an expert cosmetic dentist. If she were, the veneers would not be falling off. For the most part, people can wear porcelain veneers even with a grinding problem. If you couldn’t, they would chip, not break off. Also, she would have noticed the bite problem before placing the veneers.
I think you need to seen by an expert cosmetic dentist. I would look to see who is AACD accredited in your area (The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry).
