SounKenyon you need a new office! I have been in dentistry for over 12 yrs and could never imagine making someone feel that way! I have seen some bad things but from the picture I don’t see much wrong.. erosion, enamel loss large old fillings on front teeth there won’t be much to do that will be more permanant than veneers. They are pretty costly but beautiful. Don’t be self conscience of yourself! No one is perfect we all have something we don’t like about ourselves but never let someone make you feel that way!

Ya find a new dentist. I was always so embarrassed about going to the dentist because I would always get crap about how my teeth moved after having braces and how I need more braces ect. I have a new dentist now and it way better they are much nicer.

Despite any problems you may have, I think your teeth look really lovely! They are so straight and white.

I know the feeling. My dental hygenist makes me feel like crap everytime I have a cleaning. 

“Do you brush for a full 2 minutes” “Probably not..” “I can tell.” Umm..

I get the whole drink less sugary drinks thing too, unfortunately (for my teeth) I don’t. I would get a new dentist, I am thinking about switching hygenists. There is no reason you need to listen to someone talk about you like that.

@YogaFaerie:  ya, I’ve been using pronamel for about 6 months. I wanna whiten my teeth but am afraid it’ll make the edges even more clear! I just bought coral calcium, apparently it helps with alotta teeth issues. It was six bucks at wal mart so I’m giving it a go!

@YogaFaerie:  You have beautiful teeth & a gorgeous smile!

Do you wear a night guard to help with the griding?

I too have some issues with my teeth due to medications and was put on prescription toothpaste and fluoride gel to use daily that helps.  Is this an option for you?

I found a new dentist for similar reasons as you.  And I made sure my new dentist knew why I left my previous dentist of 10+ years.

Go to a different dentist? Then leave a poor yelp review for this one. You should not be treated this way. There are good dentists out there, I promise!

Your teeth are gorgeous! I have some transparency and white spots as well. I don’t worry too much about it. I get lots of people telling me I have a great smile, nice teeth etc.

I would switch dentists!

Since all my teeth are pretty much filled (had a lot of cavaties as a kid due to soft teeth) I normally get compliments on how good my teeth are…but I always get comments on how I need to floss more because I bleed when they clean my teeth. First off, I’m bleeding because you’re  jabbing and scraping my gums with your aweful metal tools. Who the frick wouldn’t bleed? And yeah, I don’t floss that much mainly because it grosses me out…but the point is, unless you have industrial stength gums, they’re gonna bleed when you poke them with a metal object. Duh

Ok, end rant. Gosh that really annoys me.

Btw, your teeth look fine. Maybe it’s time to look for another dentist?
