composite veneers or porcleain veneers on bottom teeth?

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008
Q.
I had some porcelain veneers done 4yrs ago on my top front teeth, which still look like new now. I went to see my new dentist at same practice to enquire about porcelain veneers for bottom teeth, but was informed that I wouldn’t be able to have them so was told I would have to have composite veneers. I had them done just prior to xmas 2007 and already the composite on 2 are badly worn. I was informed procedure would take approx 30mins per tooth, yet I had 6 done in 90mins! I would appreciate your views and advice on this matter. Have I been misinformed? If so, is there anything I can do about it?

I had my peg tooth extracted and it got infected should i have an inplant

Sunday, March 9th, 2008
Q.
I have recently had a front ( peg ) tooth extracted, it had a crown on it for years but developed an infection which was not noticed/ treated the last time i got my crown put on. I was then going to have a bridge, but the tooth next to it which it was going to be fixed to ( eye tooth ) now needs root canal. My dentist thinks i might have to have an inplant. Would i have to have an inplant or can a bridge be attached to this tooth? it is such a tiny tooth i was thinking it might be ok. Or do you think it would be benificial to have the implant in the long run? – i am 35years old thanks Mrs B
