My top right second molar is falling apart. It chipped last wear while I was eating. Now, tiny pieces have fallen off gradually. Although I cannot see the tooth well, it feels rugged. The tooth is sensitive and sore too. My dental anxiety level is high. Will the tooth fall out eventually, or do I […]
My Teeth Are Too Short
My teeth are too short, and I am self-conscious about them. Two of my sisters and a few cousins on my Mom’s side of the family have short teeth. I seem to be the only one annoyed enough to do something about it. It appears to be a genetic issue. I have been looking online […]
My smile makeover looks silly! Now what?
It’s been well over a year now that I had a smile makeover done. The original problem seemed that I had a small mouth and that my front teeth were tilted in. It wasn’t terrible, but it really bothered me over the years. Also, I had an overbite and I was missing several teeth in […]
My cosmetic dentist messed up!

The color on my dental implant is all wrong!
I’m starting to wonder if my implant dentist knew what he was doing when he put the color on the crown attached to it. I had concerns from the beginning and he encouraged me to give it some time and see if I got used to it. Well, it wasn’t at all what I was […]
I was told I’m not a porcelain veneers candidate because of an overbite.
I have been wanting to improve my smile with porcelain veneers for awhile now and I was disappointed when my dentist told me that I’m not a candidate. I was told that since my top teeth cover my bottom teeth that they won’t work. So, instead he is recommending that I get six porcelain crowns […]
I have a porcelain veneer that is turning dark.
I have had porcelain veneers on my teeth for two years. I had a pretty extensive smile makeover done with a total of 14 veneers, eight on top and six on the bottom. I have always kept good care of them and overall I’ve been really happy with how they look. Somehow I ended up […]
Disappointed after porcelain veneers. Now what?
I was so excited to get my porcelain veneers done and sadly, now that I have them, I don’t like them. The canine teeth seem to be the biggest issue to me. They look crooked and there is a visible line showing above one of my front teeth. I am thinking it may be my […]
