Question:
After some intense searching and very much thought, I decided to go forward with a big investment and had a total of 9 veneers placed on my top teeth. Along with some porcelain fillings replaced. After a couple of days I experienced swelling on my entire face and a day after that I developed a infection on my gums.

My Dentist treated me for both things and decided I had a thrush and or Lichen Planus type of infection. This was treated for 2 wks. with Diflucan and an oralpill dissolved in my mouth.

With healthy gums a month later I am taking tylenol every day, 3 to 4 times a day for severe pain all over my gums. like a toothache and or sensitivtiy. The dentist now says I should test for Lupus??? I never experienced any kind of pain ever before in my life. I have always had good teeth and healthy gums. Visitor from CA

Answer:
This is something that needs to be looked into. You should not have this kind of problem. Send me your location and I will find someone to see you.

Please ask the dentist the type of cement he used for your veneers. This is important. Did he put acid on your teeth first before cementing the veneers? Lupus is unlikely. There is a cause and effect relationship to everything. Please respond ASAP and we will get to the bottom of this for you.
