After an accident with a horse my teeth were pushed back. I had a hard acrylic mouth guard that the dentist inserted to try to get them to re-root & after a yr I lost it & the teeth started getting sensitive. I had 5 root canals. After talking to many people my father decided we needed to do all 6 front teeth & 6 lower ones so that my teeth weren’t different colours. We decided on dental works because they were the only 1’s that would do all top 6 at once then bottom at once so that they were all from same batch so they would all match. They told us they would do top crowns bottom veneers. A few months the veneers began chipping. I was getting upset & spoke w/a few hygienists where they informed me they should have never put veneers on the bottom. 3 yrs has past, they informed me when I talked w/them about them chipping that I would have to pay out of pocket for them to fix issues as they don’t come w/a warranty. Last month a whole sliver of my top front crown come off. Again they said I would have to pay. At this point I decided I would not pay them & go to a different practice. My appointment is n 3 weeks. Yesterday a whole veneer fell off. I contacted them and started explaining all the issues & that after only 3 years my teeth are falling apart. The dentist that did it was no longer with them. They have agreed to see me and see what we can do. I have a feeling they will only put the veneer back on for free. (It fell off in 1 piece which I still have) I am just wanting feed back on if this is normal and acceptable. Why others have said veneers should not go on the bottom. This has just been awful. We’ve spent $18,000, less than 4 yrs later they are falling apart.
