My veneer on a tooth has turned grey, what do you suggest?


When I was 14 I had my braces removed which caused my front tooth to die and go grey. After having bleaching done, then follwing a root canal, I had a veneer- I’m now 24 and the veneer looks grey again.
My question is, What is the best option, to replace it with a crown, lumineer or another veneer. I’m also having my teeth whitened.
The front tooth looks ok in some light but when I take a look in a shadowy area, and quite away from the mirror- thats when I notice it more. Please help!!

You need to have the root filling re assessed first as that could be the cause of the greyness, internal whitening can help or a crown or veneer. I would need to see you to give you the best ideas.

Not sure but it could be either translucency in the veneer or stain, get it checked at your dentist.

I had 6 veneers fitted just over a year ago on my front upper teeth. I am alittle disappointed with the two veneers furthest from the centre of my teeth as I feel the teeth do not meet the other teeth behind properly and therefore make my smile look un natural. Would you be able to make veneers inone visit to fix this problem even though I have had the veneer fitted withanother dentistry? Regards

I was hoping to come in for a free consultation. I am 22 years old and my teeth are really starting to get me down. They are very discoloured and arefalling apart. I have always wanted dental veneers done but could never afford it. I have recently had a baby as well which holds me back even more. Do you have a payment plan at all? And how long would it be to pay back? Ifyou could get back to me that would be great. Thank you.

Hi I had vaneers on my top 6 teeth abut 8 years ago as my front teeth weren’t completely straight. One of my front two teeth has moved alittle back so they are not straight. My bottom teeth are not straight and not white. What I’m wanting is for my bottom teeth to be straightened and be whitened very white. And my top teeth to be the same as I already have vaneers which are not white to be replaced with very white smile. Also my bottom gums have resided slightly so would want them filling I have kept ontop of the cleaning and my dentist is happy with this. Is all this possible or am I asking to much, If this is possible are you able to give me a rough cost of the Treatment. Many Thanks
