Veneer in tooth hurting, gums peeling, look blistered. Due to keeping garlic on tooth?

Hi I m 19 yrs female and I have had veneers on two if my teeth for about a year now. Two months ago the veneer where my tooth was shaven down started hurting. I would get up at night in pain. I thought my gums probably were receding due to excessive over brushing so I started using garlic to kill any bacteria and to seal the gum line. Now my gums look like they re peeling. They look blistered. I think it s due to the garlic and constantly placing it on the gum above the tooth. There is no pain throbbing on and off but my gums look terrible.

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would like to inform you that when veneers are placed,oral hygiene maintenance is very important,
in your case it seems, gums are inflamed and are receding.
i recommend use of antibacterial mouth wash(2 times/day),
kindly see your dentist soon to avoid infection from spreading to the adjacent tissues,
avoid applying garlic or any other topical agent until prescribed by a doctor.
i hope i answered your query.
i wish you good health.
