Dental Stuff - Veneers / Implants / Crowns

Recommended Posts

i have 8 Porcelain Veneers and recently found out that a root canal a couple of years ago wasn't done properly and my tooth underneath one of my Veneers is bad. I am supposed to go in this coming Thursday for Dental Surgery to have that Veneer taken off, the tooth extracted, a titanium implant put into my gum, then temporary 'crowns' put on - and 3 months from now a porcelain crown.

 

has anyone had dental implants? i am freaking out - it seems so scary! smile43.gif

My sis had this done - she actually never got in her adult eye teeth (my mom doesn't have them either - the magic of genetics!). They put in titanium anchored fakes to keep her other teeth in line and make her look normal.

 

At any rate, she says it's not a big deal - hers were done several years ago. They basically use the titanium to anchor the new artificial tooth, but there's really not much more to it than that. She says it was actually easier than a root canal.

 

For her, the biggest issue has been that she needs to keep whitening her teeth because the fake teeth don't discolor and she's a huge coffee and red wine fan, so her natural teeth are slightly darker.

Ah dentistry, something I know more about than I care to! Implants are fairly common and take months from start to finish, but the process is really just waiting and there is minimal discomfort. I would agree with Becks that a root canal is probably worse.

 

My mom also just had a few implants done last year, she didn't have any problems at all. I deal with this stuff daily w/work so if I can help or check something out for you email me :)

Oh this is a topic I am very familiar with. My DH was hit in the front tooth with a baseball when he was little and the tooth finally died. He had it filed down and a metal post put in place with a temp tooth on it for several months. Then he had to go in and get the permanent veneer put on. What a nightmare. 2 weeks ago he had a molar tooth pulled and a bone graft done to prepare the area for a post and eventually a veneer.

So sorry you're having to deal with all of that stuff. Soooo not fun!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
