    I was having my 22 year old veneers replaced before lockdown, I was given temp crowns , these have broke, replaced by composite, my teeth are decaying and causing severe pain, was being seen at Glasgow dental Hospital these temps have been in for 17 mths. Once again treatment plan cancelled its only a matter of time before I lose my teeth. I am in agony.
