Hi all, I could really do with some advice!
I travelled abroad to Hungary to have veneers done and they were fitted two weeks ago. I had 5 veneers and 1 crown fitted to my upper front teeth.
I was only back a few days when one of the veneers fell off. I had to have this re-cemented over here which cost me €80. The next day, another one fell off - and again i had to have this re-cemented back on.
The dentist i went to where i live said that the material did not appear to be porcelain as it was etching and staining. The dentist abroad is adamant that it was infact porcelain that they used. Secondly, the work is completely inconsistent. The crown is white and the veneers are a light yellow colour. The veneer colour is not the colour i picked out. I picked a natural white. When i put it to the dentist abroad i was told that the crown is zirconium based and that it why it is whiter - plus the veneers are transluscent so the final colour depends on the colour of your own teeth underneath. I was never informed of any of this.
Lastly - some of the veneers are made chunkier than others. My two front teeth are not even the same shape and size - one is longer than the other and thicker in depth. And the reason why the other two veneers came off is because the dentist abroad did not tailor the veneer to suit my bite. It was constantly getting in the way when i was trying to eat.
Now the dentist abroad has offered to reimburse me for having the veneers re-cemented back on but i wonder what to do about the fact that one tooth is white while the others are yellow?? As porcelain doesnt bleach, the only option would be to replace the veneers completely which would be so expensive. Am i being unreasonable to expect the dentist abroad to cover the cost of this?
I really dont know what to do. I dont want to be stuck with these teeth
