I had six veneers put in last year and ever since I have been having a real problem with my gums, they just get so sore and irritated and just when I think it has died down it flares back up again. It is not really really painful but its definitely enough to bother me when I am trying to brush my teeth and when I am eating. It also makes me really self conscious because I worry that my gums look terrible around the veneers, which actually look ok at the moment. My dentist does not seem to know what’s going on, so I am not exactly reassured when I go to see him and come out with no improvement at all. Is it possible that I am allergic to something in the veneers or do I have an infection? Any information you can give me on this would be a big help because I am finding it so stressful right now. Does it sound like the veneers will have to come out? I am really worried about loosing my natural teeth
I am thirty-seven years old and I have no health problems, I am not taking any medication, non-smoker and I have never had gum disease before.
