Hello. I Would Like To Have Treatment For Hypermobile Lip. Could You Help Me Find Someone?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I hope you can help me Dr Hughes. I would like to have treatment for hypermobile lip. It is something that has bothered me for a long while.
When I smile or laugh, around 8mm of my gum is exposed. I asked my dentist but said he couldn’t really help as gum contouring would probably not reduce my gum enough. I’ve tried botox injections but they didn’t work either.
I’m having trouble trying to find a surgeon or someone who would perform this sort of treatment.
I am happy to travel to London, Birmingham, Manchester etc, Can you help?
Thank you for your time.

I Broke My Bridge Recently And I Need A Denture. I Would Like To Know How It’s Going To Work For Me?

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Q.

I had dental bridge with on 3 teeth in my upper front. I have had this for about 10 years without any problem but today I went to bite into an apple and the bridge broke. My dentist said I can’t have another bridge and that I need to have dentures but he didn’t explain anything to me. I would like to know what kind of dentures I would be getting? All he said to me is not worry and that he would make sure they will look good. Now I’m not sure if I have to take them out every day or can I keep them all the time without taking them. Will it effect me when I eat or talk? Will you be able to answer my questions?

I Have A Common Problem, Which Is A Gummy Smile. What Type Of Cosmetic Treatment Should I Opt For?

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013
Q.

Hi there. I have a common problem it would seem, which is a gummy smile.
I am trying to establish all of the options and then which is the best one for me.
I have seen two different dentists and they don’t seem to have all of the facts. They only seem to think that veneers are the answer; they weren’t aware of any other options/solutions.
But from investigation, there seem to be the following solutions: Lip repositioning surgery and/or Botox, Orthodontic treatment, Orthognathic surgery, Crown lengthening and veneers afterwards and gum removal by laser or scalpel.  I am currently having orthodontic treatment, as I was led to believe this would solve the problem. The orthodontist has now told me that it can’t, so I need to seek other solutions. I have had lip repositioning surgery (badly), but this did not work; neither did the Botox for very long. Plus these are both temporary solutions.
Are there any other solutions out there? And who can I consult with to get an overview of all of the options? The two dentists I’ve seen so far were only able to consult on veneers really.
Thanks ever so much for your time and response. All the best.

I am self conscious about my gums, what can I do about my upper lip line?

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011
Q.

i have an unsatisfactory smile due to abnormally revealed gum tissues only at the area of the four incisors, and the apparent length of the teeth is normal , is there any procedure to stop the upper lip while smiling at the right gum line position?? knowing that i am 23 years old and have normal front teeth length, contour and alignment.. but my previously mentioned problem has always had a terrible impact on me since i was a little girl.. it makes me always conscious about the look of my smile during all conversations.. i have never ever revealed my teeth in any photo of mine.

What is the best way to straighten teeth, braces or veneers?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hi,
You recently did a fantasic job on my sister and i was hoping for some treatment/advice.
Generally i have good straight teeth, years of braces, etc however recently ive noticed (prob always been like this) that the front two teeth, one of them slightly sticks out than the other one, the difference is slight, but bothersome.
Cosmetically, what are my options? Are we talking braces, or veneers..If veneers, then would it be just on one tooth?
Thanks for reading.

Is there a treatment to limit upper lip movement to reduce amount of gum that shows when I smile?

Monday, September 20th, 2010
Q.
in addition to gum shaping is there a treatment/procedure to limit the movement of the upper lip area to further reduce the amount of gum shown when smiling? currently, the visible gum area is greater than my teeth when i smile (comparable to a horse) and this has had a serious psychological impact on my life.,
