Why Have My Teeth Turned Yellow During Brace Treatment?

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had Six Month Smile braces fitted a month ago and my teeth have turned a yellow colour. I’m very cautious of the colour of the food I eat. I drink coffee through a straw and clean my teeth regularly. I have spent money on different types of cleaning brushes but to no avail. I use Sensodyne toothpaste and Oral B mouthwash. Friends have commented on them therefore I am very conscious of them. Is there anything I can do?

Should I Seek a Second Opinion About My Brace Treatment?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello,

I am currently on the Six Month Smiles treatment. It’s been 8 months and my dentist claims it’s only my bottom jaw that needs more time. I feel my top jaw isn’t straightened to my satisfaction with one of the incisors still a bit wonky and one canine still sticking out a bit. My dentist insists the wonky incisor is due to the shape of the tooth and the canine is if anything over-corrected, but I’m just not satisfied when I look in the mirror. Is it worth seeking a second opinion?

Will Six Month Braces Treat My Overbite?

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have an overbite. It is rather bad on my top teeth and my bottom teeth are crowed and not straight at all – one tooth overlaps another slightly. Will this six month brace thing work for me? My gums on my bottom teeth, mainly on the one that overlaps slightly, are moving down a lot so my tooth looks longer. It’s starting to be painful sometimes, I really need this sorted. I herd that this six month brace helps a lot and doesn’t show that much, which will be a big help with my work and social life, but if this will not be helpful for me I don’t want to waste my time looking into it. Does this help everyone or people with my problems, and will it help me? What’s the likely costs and how long do you think it will take to make my teeth normal? Thank you.

I Would Like To Know How Much It Would Cost For 8 Front Tooth Veneers? Since Having My Daughter My Teeth Have Eroded.

Friday, October 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I would like to know how much it will cost for veneers and 6-8 front teeth and then to whiten all of the teeth. With a 6 months smile.

I have a gap between my teeth which I would like to close, also the enamel has eroded away on the top of my front teeth since I have had my daughter and the dentist has filled it but it doesn’t look nice. My second tooth on the right was chipped as a teenager and has now been filled with filling and my teeth are yellow and I want them to be white. Thank you for your time.

My Oral Health Has Deteriorated and Caused Gap In My Smile. Would Six Month Smiles Orthodontic Treatment Help?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello,
the reason I e-mailed you today is because I would like to ask you some specific questions regarding the gaps in my teeth.

My teeth were always decent however in recent years (especially the last six years) my oral health deteriorated. The conditions of my teeth were always in my mind but I was too ashamed to visit a dentist (or orthodontic). It has now come to the point where it is affecting my everyday life and I can't ignore it.

Altogether I have 10 gaps (four upper and six lower), formerly it was seven but the other three developed because I made use of gap teeth elastic bands which have brought no benefits. My largest teeth gap is approximately 0.35 cm large, four of them are 0.2 cm big and the rest are easily fixable.

I had a look through the website and came across '6-Month Smiles: orthodontic treatment in six months' and was wondering if you would recommend me this option. In addition I also wanted to ask you if you were able to give me an estimation of long this procedure may take.

Thank you.

Which Way Will My Teeth Move with Six Month Smiles?

Friday, September 19th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes. I am currently in week 2 of Six Month Smiles treatment.

I am looking at my teeth, trying to imagine which ones will move, and in what direction. Will any teeth come down, will they move forward, backwards or side to side?

Is there anything I can determine, just by looking at the wires? Will my dentist have a mould of what my teeth are expected to look like at the end?

I am looking at the anchor points on my back teeth and trying to imagine the brace wire running straight. Would that give me an indication of what I can expect to move and in which direction? Thanks a lot, I’d be happy to receive your advice.

I Have Spaces Between My Front Teeth. As A Student I’d Like To Know The Ideal Treatment For Fixing This?

Friday, July 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes,

I have a question about my teeth. Basically my bottom teeth are fine but my upper teeth have spaces (gaps) between most of the front teeth. I’m really insecure about it and I want to do the 6 months smile programme. But I want to know how much the price will be for that and what is the best treatment I could have?

I’m a university student right now as well therefore I would be able only to spend maximum £1900 for my teeth. Therefore I wanna know the best treatment thats available for me please get my back to me if you can.

Thank you.

Are There Any Cosmetic Training Hospitals Which Offer Less Expensive Treatment?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello, I have crooked teeth which I have always hated, I missed out on the chance of having braces as a child because at 12 I got told not to get them as I would need a operation on my jaw at 16 and my teeth would be straightened at the same time. When I turned 16 turned out I didn’t need the operation, but as a I know-all teenager I didn’t want train track braces for the next 4 years. Now I am 32 and I’ve had enough. I’ve been looking into the invisible braces and I’ve seen a place locally that do 6 month smiles treatment. I’m on a low income and I don’t know how I can afford this. Are there any cosmetic training hospitals that offer similar and less expensive? Thanks.

What Would Be The Best Approach To Make Between Inman Aligner And Six Month Smiles?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes,
I am a 27 year old student. My front lower teeth are not straight and also gapped. I would like to enquire on the best approach between the 6 month smile and the Inman aligner to take.
Also, I will not be in the country for about 10 weeks. If I do get the braces can they be fit for that long without visiting the orthodontist? Also, which facilities offer good and affordable service? I would really appreciate your response.
Please advise me. Thank you.

I Damaged My Teeth As A Child. I Am Set To Wear A Bonded Retainer But I Worry About Keeping It Clean. What Is Your Opinion On This?

Friday, May 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have a six months smile brace on at the moment that I have been told will hopefully be removed in a months time. I am also having whitening and a couple of crowns, one a replacement on my front tooth the other to cover a dead tooth. I damaged my teeth as a child falling down stairs. I have been told that I will be given a permanent fixed wire retainer on the back of my teeth for life, but I am worried that not only will this affect my bite when I eat and I also worry about keeping it clean, what are your opinions on this? Thank you for your time.
