Porcelain veneers ruined my teeth. I hate that I got them. They are too thick, too white, too wide, and too long. I hate everything about them. Sometimes, I have nightmares about what went wrong and why I listened to my dentist, who convinced me they looked fine. He bonded them to my teeth before I could look at them long enough. I felt rushed. I spent $13,500 on the veneers and am now stuck with him. Is the only thing I can do is wait to see if they last 8 to 15 years before they wear out.? I have stopped smiling because the veneers look like fake teeth from the dollar store. It’s been three months since I’ve had them. Is it too late to reverse them and return to my natural teeth? – Jonah from GA

If Porcelain Veneers Have Ruined Your Teeth, Can You Reverse Them?
If porcelain veneers have ruined your teeth or you do not like them, generally, you cannot reverse them and return them to your natural teeth. However, if you have no-prep veneers, a cosmetic dentist can examine your teeth and explain your options if you remove the veneers. Another option is to get new veneers, which will be costly. You can try talking to the dentist who placed your veneers about your disappointment and ask for at least a partial refund to replace them. After a dentist bonds your porcelain veneers to your teeth, it may be challenging to get a full refund.
How Can You Find a New Cosmetic Dentist?
You can find a new cosmetic dentist by consulting dentists with extensive post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry. During your consultation, ask to see patients’ before-and-after porcelain veneers photos. Check online reviews about the dentist’s work. You can also check reviews for complaints. Schedule at least two consultations with dentists at different practices to discuss your options.
