I’ve struggled with bulimia for years and am finally on the road to recovery. It’s been hard but I’m doing much better recently. One of the things I’m doing is trying to repair some of the damage my purging has caused. My teeth are in bad shape and I caused it. I need to find the right type of dentist for this. I don’t want one who’s going to make me feel any worse than I already do.
Wow! You’re a strong woman. I’m proud of the dynamic recovery you’ve made thus far. I appreciate the steps you’re trying to take. You’re also wise to try to find the best type of dentist for this situation.
You’ll want to work with an expert cosmetic dentist. They have the experience in working with bulimic patients. Plus, you’ll be certain whatever work they do will be beautiful. The last thing you need at this stage of your recovery is shoddy work which makes you feel worse about yourself.
The dentist will want to look at the damage to the back of your teeth. Your purging causes a lot of acid to attack the back of your teeth. It may be that will cause you to need some all-porcelain crowns, but don’t worry. A good cosmetic dentist will make them stunning.
Your best bet is to get an accredited dentist with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). They’re the top cosmetic dentists in the country and will give you a smile you will be unbelievably proud to share with people.
