Well, when I was going through the temporary veneers process I never thought I would feel this way. What can I say, when I look back at the old pictures of me with those teeth, the only think I think is – Why the hell didn’t I do this sooner!
If you asked me if I wanted my money back and go back to my old teeth I wouldn’t even need to think about. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made and although paying off the money has been a bit of a pain in the ass over the last 6 months, it has definitely been worth it.
I feel more happy and more confident as a result of my new teeth and that really is priceless. I am much more comfortable in social situations and meeting new people, which has reaffirmed that it wasn’t me or my personality, it was the embarrassment of my teeth. Now I’m like a grinning lunatic in all photos and I know I have the best teeth of anyone I know.
With regards to problems, I honestly haven’t had any, although I’m sure there are people out there who have. My advice is, pick your dentist really, really well and don’t just go for the cheapest one, or the one nearest to your house, or your own regular dentist who says he can do veneers for you. Go to a specialist who comes recommended on websites and media and with whom you feel comfortable.
I have not had any pain with my veneers since the initial taking off of the temporaries. I can floss should I choose to, although I still prefer the water pick. I can eat most foods except apples, even ribs and crusty bread are fine.
Most of all, I am just happy to be smiling and in the end everything – the money and pain – were, for me, entirely worth it. As you can see!!
