I am a recovering bulimic. A lot of my teeth are worn completely and the enamel is damaged. They’re also sensitive to hot and cold food and drinks and I have trouble chewing. Do you know if snap on smile will help me? Someone else suggested porcelain veneers.
Snap on Smile will help with your appearance, but not much else. In fact, it will put more stress on your teeth that have already been through so much.
I’m not sure who suggested porcelain veneers to you, but I hope they weren’t a dentist. Though they can give you a very attractive smile, with bulimia you’ve had extensive damage to the backs of your teeth. Porcelain veneers will only treat the front of your teeth.
The best solution would be for you to get all porcelain crowns put on your teeth. They will not only give you a beautiful smile, but will help protect the back of your teeth.
