Can My Teeth Be Restored With Cosmetic Work Rather Than Being Extracted?

Monday, April 29th, 2013
Q.

I went to my dentist this week as I have 2 decayed upper left 7&8,  a missing lower left 3 and missing up left 4. My front right 1 has a distal chip right down the edge. I am very embarrassed of my teeth an am getting married in August. I asked my dentist if she could do me some veneers or crowns or bridges and all she said she would do is extract I really don’t want this.i am a NHS patient and don’t know where to turn now. I don’t want to lose any more
teeth. She wouldn’t even offer me composite fillings for my front teeth she just tried to push dentures and I do not want them. Can you suggest anything I can do? I’m so upset.

Can My Veneers Be Replaced Under Sedation?

Monday, April 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Bohara,

Approximately 15 years ago my front tooth (top) cracked and I was given veneers on my two front teeth. I believe these have now run their course and require replacing as they feel like they are coming away from my teeth and they no longer meet my gums.

I believe that the cracked tooth is dying and that I need a root canal treatment to fix it, and that both veneers would need to be replaced. In addition to all of these things, my teeth are quite badly discoloured and I am frightened to take any steps to whiten them in case I damage the veneers further or end up with some white teeth and some discoloured teeth.

To make matters worse I am absolutely terrified of the dentist or having any work done on my teeth so I have been putting this off for some time now (I needed to be sedated to remove one wisdom tooth). However I am frightened my front tooth will fall out and then I’ll have no choice but to do something.

Please could you tell me what options are available to me in terms of treatment, sedation (conscious or not) and likely cost?

Many thanks.

Will My Teeth Shift After The Problem I Had With My Braces?

Thursday, April 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello,
I had braces 7 years ago.
And after my braces, my dentist placed a permanent wire behind by top 4 incisors.
It snapped from the side, and when i went to see a different dentist, he removed the piece that was sticking out , and now the wire is only behind 3 incisors on the right. It worries me quite a bit because you know, it wasn’t my original dentist so maybe they have missed something crucial in understanding my south’s specific orthodontic needs and nuances. So basically, I am wondering if they’ve missed something, because the wire isn’t centered anymore, will it make my teeth shift?

Thank you in advance.

I Am On Benefits, Can I Receive Free Treatment?

Thursday, April 18th, 2013
Q.

Hi. I’m 45 years and haven’t seen a dentist since I was 15 years. I know I need loads of work done and I also wear a top plate but I’m claiming benefit of £71 a week and every penny is accounted for can I still receive treatment? I’m also very scared of needled and have a very low pain threshold. I know I have to see a dentist but I’m petrified. I have a tooth missing on the top, front, left hand side and broken teeth at the back, top, right. Can a dentist do anything about all those? I can’t eat anything hard because my teeth just break.

Are Composite Veneers Right For Me?

Thursday, April 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I am interested in getting veneers to correct the overcrowding of my teeth. One of my canine teeth is up pretty high. Is this something that veneers can fix? Also, is this something that composite veneers can fix? I am looking for something that is reasonably priced as I would do braces if I could afford it. I have been to a consultation already for braces and they said that I would be a good candidate for the invisalign series of braces, I’d love to get that, but it is just too expensive. Thank You!

Do You Know Where I Can Get My Denture Treatment Done Under Sedation?

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013
Q.

HI my question is….

I unfortunately have to wear full dentures due to a massive phobia of dentists. I have a full top set but require further work on my bottom teeth and have in place a denture.. Is there anywhere where I can have sedation to get this work done. I would love to have a fixed denture but I think it will be too expensive but however I’m not sure on the old style denture as afraid it’ll be loose and possibly fall out all the time. Please please advise me on where to go. I live in the Oxford area and would like the work done asap. Also if possible could you give me an approx cost.. Please note I must be under sedation for the work to be carried out.. Many Thanks.

I Am Ashamed Of My ‘Goofy’ Teeth, Can I Get Veneers On The NHS?

Monday, April 15th, 2013
Q.

I’ve been unhappy with my teeth for 8 nearly 9 years, once I started secondary school I got bullied because of them, the main name i got called was goofy, and now when I show my teeth I place my tongue over them so no one can see them, for many years I’ve been depressed over them. It has severely knocked my confidence but now it has come to the point where I wanna get them sorted and after researching thoroughly it seems veneers are the best way to get them sorted. I’m not the richest of people as i’m on maternity leave. I was wandering if id be able to get the veneers on the NHS?

My Teeth Are Moving As I Have Not Worn My Retainer As Instructed, What Can I Do?

Monday, April 15th, 2013
Q.

I had braces on my top and bottom teeth and they were then removed after about 1-2 years. I was given clear retainers and I haven’t been following my routine for wearing retainers for my front teeth. For a while my front teeth were fine but now my right front tooth is moving closer to the left front tooth. I have a natural gap between my 2 front teeth and my dentist removed one of my molars so that my front teeth would move as my right front tooth used to go over my left front tooth. I have a small gap where my molar used to be and now a gap is being developed between my central incisor and my lateral incisor.
I have started wearing my retainers again for every night now for the last 2 weeks but my teeth are still moving.
What should I do?
Thank you for reading this and I will wait for your advice.
