Hi long story. Got 6 top veneers Oct 2020. Bit a chip Jan 2021. Felt like something stuck between 2 front teeth could not get it out. Went to doctor that did veneers. He used something he called sandpaper and very violently jammed it between my 2 front teeth. I bled and a space was created between my 2 front teeth that has never filled in. That being said I have tons of issues now. I feel what seems like small pieces of gum that I flick with my tongue. I feel thread like things with my tongue on my incisive papilla. I feel a splinter like thing that I can flick with my tongue where gum meets front left tooth from behind. I feel that deep into my palate when I flick it. I also am constantly sucking saliva to the left of center from what feels like a space. I am miserable. My whole life has been ruined by this. It consumes me all my waking hours. I only have relief when I sleep. I feel these things all day long. Not at same time different things different times . Have been to periodontists, general dentists, prosthodontist. All top notch in my area they are stumped no idea. They say crown your teeth. Oral surgeon sees a cyst behind my front teeth to the left he said. But he's doubtful that's what I feel. Needs to be removed though. Please can anyone help? I must be the only person with this insanity. I can't live like this. Please help me.

If you been to numerous specialists visits, this platform will not offer you better advice. You may need to consider new restorations. As a positve note, your gums heal well after trauma unless you have major health problems.

Thank you for your response doctor. It's the gums behind the one front big tooth. It feels like it's around the tooth and straight up along the side of the incisive papilla. It must be where I bit the chip and it just like shot straight up if that makes sense. Do u think I would need crowns instead of veneers? Or maybe take the veneers off see what is wrong and put new ones on? I don't even know who to turn to now? I am hoping but not confident that when the cyst is removed it might help, but oral surgeon doubts that too. I guess the cyst removal is not in that area even though he said it is to the left of center which is where my torture is. Thank you.

What's the opinion of the periodontist? After your area of concern is cleared by the periodontist, you may go back to the restorative dentist for treatment options like new crowns. Since I did not do any clinical exam on you, I cannot give you professional opinions.

Well I have been to a few periodontist. Some were just baffled and didn't offer any help. One said get crowns. The one the oral surgeon sent me to said get the cyst removed and then if I need to come back to her and maybe try laser treatment.

Try the laser treatment. I'm sorry I have no idea what is going on. Like I said, get the area cleared by the periodontist and consider new restorations if appropriate.
