Teeth after Veneers

Hi Dr. Ellie,

I am wondering if this product works on teeth that have lost .5mm of enamel off the tooth’s surface. I don’t want to wear veneers anymore and want them taken off. Due to the sensitivity of the enamel loss, I am wondering if this product would work for me?

Thank you,
A

Hi A,

The use of my mouth rinse system with xylitol will help put minerals back into enamel – and make it less sensitive. The problem is I don’t know how much of your tooth enamel was shaved away for the veneers. Clinically I cannot tell if the removed enamel has a chance of looking good when the veneers come off.

I suggest you start using my system of oral care now. This will make your mouth more comfortable, cleaner and fresher. You will build up as much strength as possible in all your teeth – and be able to asses your veneers from a better standpoint.

I suggest you use my system twice every day – with Zellies after every meal/snack/drink for at least six months.

This will take you from now until the summer…..

In the summer ask your dentist what he thinks will happen if you have the veneers removed.
Perhaps he will take one or two off and let you experiment to see what happens. By the summer you will be an “expert” with my system – and have confidence in the process of remineralization.

If you have already been using the system for six months, you will know how this is going to feel to newly exposed enamel. Your dentist may be able to save the old veneer – just in case you do not like the outcome.

Many dentists are willing to work with you – if you tell them what you want to do.

Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions, Ellie
