I have dental veneers on some teeth… will teeth whitening work on them

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
Dear Dr Kailesh Solanki,
I had porclein veneers put on two of my front teeth after an accident about 4 years ago and at the time they were the same colour as my other teeth. But now my other teeth are quite yellow but my veneers are whiter and so they sand out and it looks a bit stupid. I am thinking of having teeth whitening to sort the problem out so that all my teeth will be the same colour. I went to see my dentist and he siad that he cannot guarentee that my teeth will come up to the same colour as my veneers because teeth whitening doesnt work on veneers. I just want a second opinion, in your expertise is it possible to make the veneers whiter and if not what are my options if I want my teeth to all look the same colour? X.S

I want a smile makeover which dental vaneers are best …lumineers, Mac vaneers….how much will my new smile cost?

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
Hi Dr Riten, having looked at your website I see that you are the nearest expert to me I live in Kingston. I wonder if you can help me. I am 45 and recently divorced I have just got my settlement and have decided that its about time I spent some money on myself and I have always been aware that my smile lets me down. I dont want a “hollywood smile” but I want a “new smile” I think i need teeth vaneers or porcelain vaneers my teeth are quite yellow and the bottom teeth are shorter than they should be, my regular dentist tells me its because i grind my teeth. I know for a smile makeover I need to see a cosmetic dentist for a good result. I have read a lot about different types of vaneers and the lumineers appeal to me because i dont want to have a lot of my teeth chopped off and these dont require that. Would you recommend lumineers vaneers ? or are there better vaneers like mac vaneers which are made in America? It seems that America have much better vaneers than here from looking on various websites and I really want the best, can you get these american vaneers in the UK? Also can you give me an idea how much my new smile would cost me I have about 20 thousand in savings and could possibly put the rest on a finance plan if it was more but I would like a ball park figure so that I can sort out my finances. I think i would need vaneers on all my teeth as i do not see the point in only doing the ones at the front or a few on the top I want my smile to look great from every angle. Thankyou for your time.

Can you put lumineers over old white fillings on two front teeth ?

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
Dear Doctor! Hello! I have a long lasting problem with my up front teeth. I changed the filling on them already 4 times, cause its always changing its colour. Can you, please, tell me if i can put lumeneer right on the filling or all the filling has to be removed? Every time i was changing the filling, teeth structure was removed as well, so, without filling i have a big space now. Thank you very much. S

My dentist says that Lumineers will not work beacuse my teeth are grey and I will need normal porcelain veneers

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
I told my dentist I was interested in Lumineers based on research I had done. He said that Lumineers would not work on my teeth because they were a bit grey. He prefers using a local lab that would make porcelain veneers that would require removing a significant amount of tooth matter. My question is does the Lumineer product cover grey? Should I get a second opinion? K

Are dental veneers as strong and lasting as normal teeth ?

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
Dear Dr. Patel, Even though I am not in the UK I hope you will find the time to answer my question. I am considering veneers for my front teeth as they are discoloured due to childhood tetracycline treatment. Additionally, my teeth are frequently affected by cavities and appear not to be too “strong”. will veneers have the same binding and lasting properties on such teeth as they would have on regular teeth?
