No. the dentist used a drill to file down the veneers. He said that they might be too long for me. He did numerous adjustments on the veneers. Periodically it feels like there are bubbles popping inside the veneers. Eventhough they've had root canals done they are sensitive to pressure, such as when I'm drinking out of a water bottle & it hits them.
Do you think I can cause more problems by having the veneers removed?
The veneers were placed on the teeth prior to the root canals. They were placed on the front teeth because they had been previously bonded & the bonding was cracking. The root canals were done because the roots were badly inflamed. Before the endodontist did the root canals he gave me a brief dose of steroids which did nothing for the pain & also antibiotics. The xrays show the veneers look good & also the root canals look good.
How do you correct ligament inflammation? What is involved in putting on crowns? Does it require more drilling to the teeth? Do you know of any specialty dentists in the Los Angeles area who are equipped to handle this problem? Thank you.
How can we tell if there is pressure? The dentist used carbon paper at the last adjustment a week ago when he reduced the length of the tooth & said it looked good.Since the pain travels the length of my mouth, maybe the ligaments in other teeth could be aggrevated. Have you heard of atypical tooth pain? Could I have developed this condition? I'm just concerned by removing the veneers I'll further inflame the teeth. Sorry, if I'm rambling, but I've never had so much continuous pain. It seems like the dentists have stopped trying to help me & now are referring me to pain specialists. Thank you for your expert adivice. I feel like I opened up a can of worms by getting veneers. Will I ever be pain free?
Thank you so much for caring & following through. I went to the dentist on Tues. & he made up a soft plastic nightguard. I wore it for 2 nights & it made the pain worst. Instead of the pain being in the veneers & traveling to the jaw, the pain was concentrated in the canines & traveling. I did mention the ligaments to the dentist & he said it could be a possibility even though all the xrays look fine. Mon. we're removing the veneers & will put on temporaries. Hopefully, that will help. He's going to make the new veneers the exact shape & size of the original teeth. If that doesn't work I don't know where to go. The advil is starting to cause pain in my upper stomach. Would tylenol work as well? Do you think another dose of steroids might help? The dentist did not think a prosthodontist would help. Have you ever heard of anyone having this type of problem?
Any more suggestions.
In your opinion, should I get crowns or implants? Thank you.
