Anyone else have vaneers? Im thinking of grinding the rest of my teeth down and getting perfect white teeth placed on them. My front two teeth are fake already and was wondering if anyone else had experience with vaneers.
please tell me it's a joke.
Nobody should use veneers, it's discusting.
To me, seeing a mouth full of veneers is alike to looking at a women with so much plastic surgery her face is frozen and her lips look like they are gonna fall off.
They makes you look like a prick, teeth are not white to begin with.
It all depends on how thick is the layer of enamel, some people have it thinner others have it thicker
theoretically having thick enamel makes your teeth more healthy but it also makes them less aestethic
this meme doesn't work. whitening doesn't work. if you want white teeth, and don't currently have them, you're going to have to get veneers.
Composite or Porcelain is the only question now
Veneers are quite magical. And quite sturdy with a 89% 9-year survival rate. And you can expect them to last atleast 20 years before one of them breaking but at this point they're probably no longer as pretty and you'll probably want them redone anyway,
This has to continue for as long as you want to keep your teeth as the tooth is permanently prepared for a veneer. But it might be worth it, 10/10 smile at 20 but frustrating as fuck at 60.
The thing is that unless your teeth are stained by a fuckton it's generally not worth it. Keep in mind that white straight teeth is not the norm, and in many hollywood cases not even naturally possible.
But hey, hand me $2k per tooth and I'll do it. Out of curiousity, could you post a pic of your teeth?

Whitening teeth doesen't require you to remove healthy enamel to make it work. Nothing we can do fuctions as good as healthy tooth substance which makes preparing an undamaged surface kinda controversial as the prognosis for the tooth would be reduce AKA you're actually inflicting damage.
With whitening you'll save money and in 10 years when the apearence of your teeth is no longer a major issue, you stop whitening them and save them the trauma.
>With that said go for porcelain or glass-ceramic. Don't do composite veneers for the love of god
Thank you dude.
I never really expect qualified dentists/doctors to be browsing 4chan, let alone /fit/
I fully understand the damage using veneers does, but I am aware, and moreso willing to deal with the consequences 10-20 years from now.
I'm 18. My teeth are shit, and the confidence porcelain veneers would give me, is honestly priceless. As you said previously, veneers are fairly long lasting, and I'd only have to change them every 8-10 years or so.
Dentistbrah, help me out here.
If I got ugly fucking teeth (Years of neglect in my younger days), OKish aligned (Got one protruding like a boar fang in the lower part of my mouth), but all are worn down a bit, is there a point in me getting veneers or should I get a crown instead?
The fixation on your teeth as the major factor for life unsatisfaction is abit unsettling. I would probably refuse treatment.
Keep in mind that if you start blaming other body parts(nose and chin are common ones) then you've probably got an underlying issue, the handling of which is out of my field of knowledge.
>But hey, your teeth might actually look fucked up
Dont know parents paid for it
you can see how much whiter they look then regular off white teeth
You have to be more specific of what your problem is. Is it 'ugly' teeth? Or not aliagned sufficiently? The boar tusk? The worn down teeth?
All? Whats your goal? Whats your recources? Age?
Veneers and crowns are for diffrent conditions.
Your teeth are probably fine, the cost to benefit ratio is too huge. Just keep them healthy and avoid further actual detoriation.
>Americans shoot up schools if their teeth don't look like chiclets
Teeth darken with age, its due to pigments diffusing into to crystal structure of the enamel. Your veneers dont do this and thus retain their original shade while the rest darkens. This is easely countered by whitening. I advice to get a custom made mouthgard from your dentist and then you can use commersial whitening pastes in the future with proffessional results.
If I made veneers on any of your healthy teeth I would get investigated, and you could sue me and win, if the state regulatory department diden't already do it for you.
I'm sorry. They are... Stained? More yellowish than off-white in colour. The tops are "serrated"ish, i.e. not anywhere near flat - In particular the lower four teeth. I assumed it was because they were worn down because of an old habit of drinking soda like water.
The protruding tooth doesn't really bother me, I just brought it up in hopes you might tell me if I'd need to get it aligned with the others or get it pulled if I were to undergo cosmetic treatment for my teeth.
It might sound perverse, but the kind of Hollywood picture-perfect teeth with an unnatural white look - Think Rich Piana, and you get the idea.
I'm 23, going on 24. I won't say money isn't an issue, but when I take a quick gander at the price estimates here, I could easily see myself affording all my teeth done up with a year and a half or two of saving up for it.
I might add, I miraculously haven't had any real "big" issues with my teeth, aside from the cosmetic damage they've suffered - No cavities or fillings, no nothing but one of my wisdom teeth getting extracted.
the serrated effect is normal ware.
Usually its enough with 6 veneers in the upper jaw, canine to canine. As that covers the vast majority of surfaces visible while smiling. The teeth in the lower jaw however is far frome asy to fix. Extraction of 2 premolars and bracers for years, probably necessary to do the same in the upper jaw and its to late for the treatment to effective.
The 6 veneers should be enough though. However, the hassle in the future wont be worth it
On the topic of dental health, does /fit/ have any experience with fixing gap teeth? I have a 3-4mm gap in my front teeth and really, they are my only real insecurity.
Really feel like getting them sorted, people give me shit for it and I can see when people look at it, really fucks my mood up
Enamel is usually the culprit. Wine, coffee, tobacco are the most common discollorants. Your toothpaste includes silica and oxide particles to polish the surface removing most of the discoloration.
At older age the increased thickness of dentin is the reason you get yellow teeth.
The pulp is only relevant if its necrotic (the pulp and tooth becomes gray) or before the permanent teeth are fully developed but are erupted as the red-pink color will shine through
>too late to be effective
You would howeever be remitted to an orthodontist for that, so I won't speak for them. Keep in mind that we're talking year's with bracers in your 20s, and lifelong retainment of teeth by either a metal thread on the inside of your teeth that will detach all the time and you'll need to get it reatached at the dentists office, or a bi-nightly use of a palate plate retainer thingy.
3-4mm is pretty huge, like half the width of a tooth. It can have many causes and getting the correct diagnosis is crucial to deciding the correct treatment, something i wont be able to do over the internet.
However, treatments range from orthodontics, veneers/fillings that fill the gap, surgery or a combination.
It should be possible. might be harder if you have a generally wide room for your teeth. Sucked your thumb into your teens?
I have this one tooth that died a couple of years ago and i got an infection inside my gums so i had to get surgery. As you can see my gums are really receded and the tooth just looks sick. I'm very self concious about this but i'm getting it replaced soon.
Anyone tried Crest Whitestrips? Seem to give interesting results without much effort
>Veneers are quite magical. And quite sturdy with a 89% 9-year survival rate. And you can expect them to last atleast 20 years before one of them breaking
why the fuck would i buy those? the ones i've already lasted me 20 years without breaking and i got them for free
What kind of surgery? With a scalpel?
Or a root canal treatment? If it wasn't opened with a drill then go get root canal done right away. The gray shade suggest the pulp being necrotic and shouldnt even be there if the tooth was treated properly.
But without X-ray, vitality test, percussion test i cant diagnose it. Anyway, treatment is simple. Surgery is plan C
I had root canal treatment and then the "rest" of the root that remained in the tooth got infected so they drilled it open.
My doc told me the dark hue you see is actually the stuff they filled in after removing the root. For some reasen its dark blueish and not white like its supposed to be.
I have these. If I'm not mistaken, they're supposed to be the better ones of the bunch. Generally, you're supposed to use all twelve within a pretty fast amount of time, but I have a few left over and I'd be willing to do a quick before/after one strip set for ~an hour. I'll try to keep the lighting the same
Only one because I work at 2, and it's 11:45 right now
White teeth are so gross and haram haha!!!!
Silly amerikeks with their unrotten white teeth
I think i'm puzzling it together. Since the first RCT failed he switched the filling material thats usually white-pink for another better material called MTA which is gray and this is what shines through.
MTA is rarely used in that large quantities though, shit is litterally worth more than gold. Bleaching the tooth from the inside will fix it.
Fun fact: MTA is litterally pavement cement with all the toxic shit removed. Patented and sold like it was gold
Hey man. Thanks for your insight. But i think replacement is inevetible, seeing how much of the bone is already missing cause of the infection. I will get bone augmentation first so the fake tooth will be stable.
pic related, xray that was taken a couple weeks ago
Invasive cervical resorption
You don't see that every day. With that rough surface no way sufficient infection controll will be achived. I would pull the tooth right away and let the alveoli heal avoiding more boneloss.
Recommend a single implant as replacement
No thumb sucking, I have a large bump in the gap that goes between my teeth. I forget what it's called but yeah, it kind of blocked my teeth as I grew.
Yep thats exactly what i'm getting, i'm just dicking around with insurance at the moment so i don't have to pay several thousand euros.
My biggest fear is that my gums will receed even further and that the replacement will look unnatural and noticable. Do you have any experience in that regard?
