Dumb Influencers Are Shaving Their Teeth Down To Pegs

  Published on 

If you’ve had your teeth shaved to pegs, you certainly will need the attention of a dentist at age 40. More and more people choose to get veneers to enhance their smile, and of course, having discolored teeth brighter and whiter can change one’s overall appearance. It turned out there’s a risk! 

Crowns are getting more aggressive and invasive to teeth as they require more of the tooth filed down to appear like pegs. But the invasive dental work could ruin that desired smile permanently or perhaps leave you at the mercies of dentures sooner or later. Taking to TikTok, Dr. S Manouchehri of London pointed out the difference between veneers and invasive crowns. 

Invasive dental work could ruin that desired smile permanently or perhaps leave you at the mercies of dentures from age 40, dentists reveal.

Dr. S Manouchehri explained that veneers are majorly attached to the teeth’ front, while crowns require the ground down of teeth. Having said the mentioned above, she warned against the irreversible process of shaving teeth to pegs to have crowns at a young age. The concern emerged from young followers being eager to follow celebrities’ footsteps in attaining the Hollywood smile.

Dr. Emi Mawson of Cornwall seconded the view, reiterating that veneers and crowns are two entirely different things. Dr. S Manouchehri started her now-viral clip showing an influencer before and after traveling to Turkey to have her teeth changed. ‘First of all, those aren’t veneers; those are fill coverage crowns. If you’ve seen my previous clip, you will know that shaving your teeth down to pegs will damage the nerve. Dr. S Manouchehri, with almost 100,000 TikTok followers, said.

She added: ‘You’re going to need a root canal treatment and an extraction at some in your life. Secondly, veneers or crowns need to be replaced every 10-15years typically. Now she’s a gorgeous woman. I think she is around 18, 19 maximum, and she will replace them probably 4 or 5 times throughout her life, if not more.’

Seconding, Dr. Mawson uploaded a photo of Katie Price and revealed the celebrity had had crowns instead of Veneers. ‘Veneers is much less disruptive to the teeth. Once your teeth are down to stumps, there isn’t going back. I beg you if you’re looking to get cosmetic dental procedures, find a reputable minimally invasive dentist.’ Dr. Mawson urged young teens.

However, TikTok users responded to the videos, acknowledging they aren’t aware of the treatment’s effect while praising the dentist for the advice. A few revealed how the videos convinced them despite deciding to have their teeth shaved, while some revealed they would henceforth embrace what they have. So, what about you? Are you still in or instantly out?
