In response to: “One year ago I let a dentist put 4 dental ceramic veneers. I’m starting to worry about it since I read some articles on this site. Ceramic is made from aluminum which is toxic. Also he used a composite to stick the veneers to my teeth. Should I let them removed? Thanks!”

The cementing/bonding agent is another story, but these are all problematic at this time. You can learn more in Mouth Matters: How your Mouth Ages Your Body and What You Can do About It.

I will however selectively answer those of a general nature so readers can benefit from other’s questions. Please note: Carol Vander Stoep is a dental hygienist. Just as a dentist may not legally diagnose or offer personalized dental treatment advice via the Internet, neither may she. Carol will not dispense dental/medical advice via email – if you have dental concerns, please schedule a consultation with a dental professional whose philosophy most closely aligns with yours. Mouth Matters and Primal Dentistry books and database as well as this website is an offering to help enlighten you about possible considerations and choices.
