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?

Will teeth whitening work on my darkened root canal treated teeth ? ..internal tooth whitening inside out teeth whitening…

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
I have always had a lot of problems with my teeth and in the last couple of years, I have had root canal treatment on my front teeth. The treatment has considerably darkened my teeth to the extent where I am now very conscious about smiling or showing my teeth. I am seriously thinking of having my teeth whitened but I am worried because I have heard it can sometimes do more damage and my teeth are not in very good condition as i have quite a few fillings etc. Do teeth have to be in good condition to undergo the whitening process? I am also not sure if the whitening would work because it has been caused by root canal? If you could offer any advice, I would be very grateful. L.
