I Have Veneers Which Keep Breaking Off And I Have No Confidence In My Dentist. Please Can You Advise Me?

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Dear Dr Hughes. I have had 6 veneers across the top row of my teeth. They have constantly broken off within one year, I had to pay for a second set – the dentist coolly said that he was a bad technician and that was all. I still had to pay full price for another set. I saw another dentist for a second opinion who said far too much of my original tooth had been removed. I then started having throbbing pain in my veneered teeth, the dentist said that I now need to have root fillings under all of them. I know that with gum shrinkage there will be gaps at the top of the teeth, but mine are black and ugly. I complained and she filled them with composite that doesn’t match my veneers. I have no confidence at all in my dentist. Another veneer broke off last night. I do not want to go back. On top of all this, she knew that I have severe Sjogren’s syndrome, and I have read since that I should have never had them done. Please can you advise me?
Many thanks.

Does Having Sjogren’s Disease Affect Me Having Dental Treatment?

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Hi Dr. Butt,
I have sjogrens which is an autoimmune disease that causes dry mouth and other things. The problem I am having is that my two front teeth have chipped and are now decaying so I would like to know what can be done to restore my teeth. I also have my front bottom teeth that have chipped and broken off that need to be replaced also.
I don’t know if I need to get dentures or if I can get them capped or a bridge. I have no insurance so this would be out of pocket, so how expensive is it? Could I also do the front teeth first? Any advice would be great, I’m just looking for some general comments so I know what to expect when I decide to visit my dentist. Thank you very much for your time.
