I have severely recessed gums that now expose the substrate below the veneers to my upper jaw.
My lower jaw has five dental implants and a bridge, so the question of receding gums does not apply.
Would new veneers solve the problem, or would implants be the better solution? Giving consideration to the inevitable question of cost and longevity of the success after the procedure, I am also a type 2 diabetic and suffer from Coeliac disease.
Are there any other suggestions you could make to improve the appearance of my smile? With the prolonged receding of my gums I have inevitably lost a number of teeth from my upper jaw as well and although the denture I have conceals some of the problem, they do highlight the areas where the substrate is most visible.
