We tried everything to make it white. I had a root canal, they filled the back of it with bleach, I wore a gum shield at night filled with bleach....the list was endless & nothing worked. The only thing left to try was a veneer or crown.
At the start of July I had my first appointment. They had to file the tooth down enough for the veneer to fit over the top & take an impression. I hadn't thought much about it but when I came out of the dentist & looked in the mirror I was so upset at the colour of my tooth & it made me really self-conscious, underneath the enamel it was such a dark brown. I spent the next few weeks trying to talk & grin either while hiding behind my hand or by hardly opening my mouth which I’m sure made a point of it more than if I’d just ignored it!
