When I was 25 (5 years ago) I had 8 porcelain veneers on my top teeth. A totally unnecessary and purely cosmetic procedure. I never ate sweets or fizzy drinks, brushed and flossed twice a day my teeth were very strong and healthy no filings and it was a ridiculous idea to have veneers. I went to the dentist about straightening a tiny kink and came out with a set of veneers. They were done by a very experience and qualified London cosmetic dentist and they have always been fine BUT I didn't realise how much this would psychologically affect me. I now have panic attacks everyday about the fear of root canal or losing my teeth. I am terrified of what damage I have done to my future self and wish I could turn back the clock and stop myself going through with it. I pray for the day that stem cell technology can rebuild my a natural enamel and have them off I literally want to pull them off myself! This has affected my self esteem so much constant worrying is making me ill. Does anyone feel the same?
