Dentists – veneers
It seems a very unregulated industry.
It’s very regulated, but don’t let that worry you. Like any cosmetic procedure, you need to be aware of the risks. Veneers need to be bonded to teeth, and whilst its stable and should last 10-30 years you need to chose the dentist carefully, and weigh up the pros and cons of having a nice smile, vs the ( very small) risk of complications later on.Posted 4 years agotailsMember
I want to get my teeth all straight and be able to smile properly. I went to my dentist planning to have a brace fitted after a brief conversation he recommended veneers as my teeth are discoloured, or a combination of the two.
Has anyone had veneers as I thought they were more invasive than braces, I plan to get a consultation by an orthodontist as well. It seems a very unregulated industry.Posted 4 years agotechnicallyineptMember
I had some fitted almost 20 years ago (cost me £4).
I’m not looking forward to cost when they need replacing.
Have had no problems with the veneers but …
as my teeth continued to move after having them fitted (aged 21), one of the veneered teeth (an incisor) got pushed forward and was replaced by a crown for cosmetic reasons (aged approx 29). I am on my third crown as the bloody thing keeps breaking.Posted 4 years agostumpy_m4Member

Thanks, that sounds better than I thought. Those with veneers are were your teeth reasonably straight before having veneers?
Mine were quite wonky. Pretty sure that these days I would have had braces fitted as a child.
I was referred to the Liverpool Dental Hospital to see about my suitability for braces. The dentist said I’d need my jaw resetting of some such nonsense after having the braces and recommended the veneer route. Hence, I got them almost free.Posted 4 years ago
