    Question:
    I am a recovering bulimic. My teeth are not in bad shape, although I assume they'd be in better shape had I not developed this habit.

    I am interested in veneers because my teeth are small and could be whiter. If I get veneers, what if I get a cavity underneath one of them? Can i eat apples still and chew gum? ...Visitor from LA

    Answer:
    Veneers would be a good restoration for you due to the condition you described. Oftentimes the most damage is done to the inside of the teeth (the palatal side or side which is facing the roof of the mouth) due to the bulimia having induced the vomiting which contacts this surface.

    If the teeth are still in good shape then a veneer on both the facial side (side that everyone sees) and the palatal side (the side towards the roof of the mouth) will be helpful in both beauty and restoring function.

    Sometimes the teeth may need to have full coverage crowns placed. Yes you can get cavities under the veneers the same as you can get cavities in the natural teeth. The veneers will most likely help with reducing the cavities.
