Preventing Receding Gums
I am concerned about receding gums and how to prevent this happening as I have Veneered teeth. Could you also advise me on where I can find someone (in U.K preferably)that will insure my veneers against accidental damage?
You should have an examination with a periodontist. There is no insurance for accidental damage to veneers that I am aware. A dentist may make you a mouth guard which may help prevent injury.
