Anyone have veneers? I realized my front teeth are wearing down with age
Does anyone have veneers? Do you like them?

So far, I have taken pretty good care of myself. In my early to mid 30's and try to stay healthy. Recently I have noticed my teeth need a little attention.

Amazingly, perfectly straight teeth run in my family, but I also think soft teeth run in my family. When I was a teenager, my mom came to me one night with her front tooth in her hand and said it just broke off when she was biting on something! eek! I had horrible teeth as a child and still have many fillings from my early adulthood. I vowed to never get to the point of needing dentures (since it wears down your jaw bone), so I always made sure to take pretty decent care of my teeth. Brush at least once a day always before bed.

Anyway, I was discovering an old tooth-colored filling in-between my front teeth has become weakened and is slightly lifting up on the edges. This causes concern when I floss as it is shredding the floss, and I MUST get this fixed before bacteria makes it way under the filling and becomes a cavity, unless I'm too late....

And It's been at LEAST a decade since my front teeth actually TOUCHED the bottom teeth when I bite down, so I've been suffering YEARS of pulling bacon, pickles, tomato, or lettuce out of all my burgers/sandwiches without successfully cutting fully through them. So as I was looking at them further and realized my front teeth have become so worn down, I have nearly half a centimeter of space between them. My back teeth have always touched just fine, but the front teeth haven't touched since I wore them down biting my fingernails as a child.

Does anyone have veneers? Do you like them?
I would consider them to make my front teeth a bit longer and attractive again, but I am NOT crazy about the idea of them shaving down part of my teeth in order to fit the veneers on top...

Sadly, I think the main thing that will keep me from fixing my teeth would be price...

Veneers are like boob jobs.
Will you have $10-15K in 15 years to replace them?

I work in entertainment and I'm sick of actors/models with unnatural BRIGHT WHITE teeth. It looks fake, makes dudes look like Chippen Dale dancers, and the girls look like gold diggers.

Shish with coconut oil, and strengthen your teeth.
Fuck the veneers.

Often teeth can appear perfect on the outside and rotten on the inside because of one small hole between the teeth, where a dentist can't repair and you can't really clean.

What is the color of your gums? Do the gums get paler as you get towards the teeth?

Re: Anyone have veneers? I realized my front teeth are wearing down with age
I had veneers on my top front teeth as a kid, 18 (almost 40 now).

I used to be able to bite hang nails with them, now I can't.

The veneer and tooth under it appears to be the same.

The only teeth that I can tell I've worn down are the ones in the back. They're starting to get rounded.

Not sure why I can't bite hang nails anymore.

may be I don't chew enough with the teeth in the middle?

anyways, I feel your pain OP.
