All those years of smoking
caused my gums to recede
about 1/8 inch above the enamel.
So for the past 5-6 years
I've been paying to have
the tops of my teeth bonded.
It costs 185 per tooth and needs
to get touched up at least once
per year and it still looks ugly.
So, I told the dentist I want a plate.
He said "NO-o-o-o-o-o Tammy, you
won't like it"
So I pay 100 dollars for a consult
at a different dentist about a plate.
He said, NO-o-o-o-o-o, your roots are good.
You should cap canine to canine
and get two bridges.... 16k for the tops.
And I'm thinkin---- I don't know anyone
who has all their teeth capped -- like
I don't live in Hollywood.
So then my gf says, go see my dentist.
He will give you a quote on some veneers.
So I made an appt for Monday, Dec 4th
There is another 100 consultation fee.
With all the former smokers on here
there has to be someone else who
completely messed up their teeth.
I Know I'm not the only one....
Anyone have any experience with this
that they'd care to share???
