You’ve hit the nail on the head. I got mine done when my confidence was very low. I had recently been proposed too but rejected him and broke up with him all whilst we were backpacking around the world. My self confidence was never high, often my teeth were a source of embarrassment (they were FINE) but to a teen they were hideous. Anyway it was almost impulsive to get my teeth cosmetically enhanced. I just didn’t care enough about myself at the time. Clearly I was depressed. I wasn’t thinking straight.@AlwaysAnxious It was my first session, just a half hour but I cried the whole time while explaining. She told me I need to see the doctor at the hospital. I think she wants me to see a psych doctor but she’ll also continue to see me. I think she’s gonna set up an appointment at the hospital for me. I guess she works there as well. I also usually make smart and healthy choices and somehow I just let this happen. I also can’t understand how and why. The why makes sense now but still cannot accept how fragile my mind was at the time that I let this happen to myself.
We should share smile photos.
My biggest fear right now is my swollen gum. If that wasn’t an issue I think I would be able to manage this all better.
Veneers that lasted 25 years?! Wow! My first set of crowns failed at 11 years. The teeth crumbled and broke. It was so awful. I have to keep a credit card handy in case anything else suddenly happens.
I am hoping this next set lasts longer being more modern cements etc. However I clench my teeth which is causing problems.
If I could get 20 years out of this set i Would be so happy.
Just very worried about this gum issue.
They still say 10-15years for front crowns to cover themselves.Crowns usually have a longer lifespan, I know some people that have had there’s for 20 years. Did the tooth inside the crown crumble or the crown itself? Have you tried gargling with salt water? Is your next dentist appointment soon? Maybe that’ll give you a better ideas of what’s going on.
I really hope everything works out for us. I have a few dental appointments lined up. How’s the sensitivity with your two?@cmykrgb yep it’s the two front 8 & 9 I think. They look good straight on but from the side, you can tell they’re much thicker than my normal teeth. Yeah they were prepped quite a bit. I see my new dentist in February and she’s gonna take a look at the x rays - I’m curious about her professional opinion regarding the prep work. He didn’t just shave the front, he also took from the sides ? so heartbreaking
If you’re worried, I had crowns on my x6 front teeth. I went to a hack dentist (didn’t know at the time) and he shaved my teeth down to jagged pegs. Like nightmares. My current dentist has commented on how much of my natural teeth were ground away. It gives me nightmares.@cmykrgb yep it’s the two front 8 & 9 I think.
