 Re: Dental veneers

As a double lip player I'm a tad bit confused. First, I don't know anything about veneers, so please forgive me here. However, if a player is biting to the point of putting a hole into the patch with the teeth I have to question the embouchure. I also have to question how sharp are these veneers? Maybe the veneers need to be rounded off? Rounded to the point in which the the upper lip won't get cut if you ever decide to practice for a short time with a double lip.

I think to achieve a decent sound sometimes practicing with a double lip improves the upper muscles, even if you only practice for maybe 5 minutes a day. The embouchure muscles will surely improve to a more correct position naturally.

So if a hole is being torn into the patches on a mouthpiece I am concerned that the veneers are made wrong and the embouchure may suffer, thus that great sound may not be achieved. I'm fully aware that 99 percent of the players play with a single lip embouchure, however I'm also aware of how well double lip players sound compared to single lip players. I am not saying to switch to double lip, but if you don't like your sound, or if you don't have the best sound in the group you are playing in well try practicing with a double lip a few minutes a day. Maybe for the rest of your life. I promise you that your sound will always be better than most of the players you hear.

So I think I would ask the dentist to fix the problem if your upper lip gets really sore after just a few minutes of playing. These would surely be my guidelines with dental work. Hope this helps.
