I had veneers across 8 of my top teeth about 5 years ago to correct my teeth that were under sized, discolored and uneven surface from flourosis. I liked the final result however, ever since I have had real trouble with persistent gum disease, receding gums and bone loss just in the area where i had the work done. I was told by a periodontist about a year ago that the veneers were not fitted 100% flush with my real teeth so there is space for bacteria to collect. She said that there was nothing i can do other than keep on top of my cleaning and oral hygine.
I try to keep a good hygine routine, brush, floss and mouthwash but it feels like a bit of a loosing battle.
I’m worried about how bad my bone loss and receeding gums will get and if the veneers should be re-done to prevent this from getting worse?
Or is there something else I can do with regards to keeping the veneers but getting some help with stopping any further bone loss?
In your experience with cosmetic dentistry, is this something you come across very often and what would you recommend for me to do?
Thanks in advance.
