Would Veneers Be The Right Option To Rectify The Gaps Between My Teeth?

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013
Q.

Hi there, i would like to make an enquiry regarding veneers i have heard they are the most effective in straightening teeth making them more whiter and most importantly closing the gaps in between in order to enhance smiles  I’ve been wondering as my bottom set of teeth are fine but there are few gaps, well more precisely about 4 of them that need closing at the top and need to be straightened so is that possible with any of your procedures? Moreover how long will this procedure take? Are there any potential risks involved?

Thanks, looking forward to hearing back from you very soon.

My Teeth Are Moving Forward Again, Which Type Of Brace Should I Get?

Monday, May 13th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr, I used to have bracket braces years ago, my teeth had straightened however my front upper two teeth have gradually come forward since and I feel that they stand out which I don’t like. It has really annoyed me since I thought I was done with the whole braces thing but more so it’s started to knock my confidence again. I don’t want to be spending too much money just to get those teeth fixed, I want to get the right braces for what I need to be fixed in terms of teeth straightening. will you advise on which options I should be looking at?

What Should My Son Do About His Mid-line Shift?

Thursday, May 9th, 2013
Q.

Which treatment is best and cheapest for my son he is 16 years old and had NHS orthodontist treatment 6 years ago. He stopped wearing his retainers four years ago. Now his wisdom teeth are coming through he has a mid-line shift of top front teeth going to the right,
Before the orthodontist treatment 6 years ago we had to have a tooth removed on the top right side due to overcrowding, I feel this has caused the mid line shift as x-ray has been taken and he has the extra tooth on the left side plus the wisdom teeth which are coming through and pushing the whole line off teeth to the right.
I would appreciate any advise you can give thank you.

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor! So, my problem is that I had fixed braces 7 years ago, then my dentist removed them after 1 year and from that time to now I am using a retainer .. but still if I don’t use it for only an hour my teeth move back to there original position .. I am really tired of it now :/ M dentist is suggesting that I go and get a bridge done on my front 6 teeth .. Now firstly can you tell me what that is? As I haven’t got a clue what a bridge is. Also I would like to know what you think that I should do about this? Like your general opinion because I am really frustrated now. Pleeeeeaseee helpppp ,  I have to tell you as well that my retainer breaks off so easily, even though I take so much care of it .. :/ Nightmare

Can I Straighten My Teeth Without Braces?

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor, so I’ll start you off with the main point of my question, okay, I have just the ONE slightly one crooked tooth on the top row. I had straight teeth before and my extra teeth grew in the back and pushed all my teeth forward and made my teeth (or my one tooth) crooked -.- is there any way to make my teeth go back to normal without getting braces ? I really really really really do NOT want braces because then I’ll probably have a garish piece of metal in my mouth and that’s not pleasant for anybody really. But, you are the expert and if I do need braces about how long do I need them for ?also I brush my teeth EVERYDAY and night and they are still yellow very very yellow I do not drink coffee either is there anything I could do ? or a tooth paste you recommend for me ? thank you so much.

My Two Orthodontic Consultations Have Conflicted With Each Other, Which Is Correct?

Monday, April 29th, 2013
Q.

Hi doctor!!

I have got a dental bridge done in my back upper tooth and also have an open bite.

I have been advised to have some orthodontic treatment as there is a slight overlap in my incisors and also the adjacent tooth are slightly smaller.

I have consulted two dentists and have got a little confused, hence the query.

While one says it can be sorted out by braces which will take 8-10 months or I can just get the front 4 teeth corrected by replacing my teeth with artificial ones which can enhance the smile, the other doctor is of the opinion that as I have a bridge, braces would be complicated and might take 2 years to correct the alignment or I can just get the front 4 tooth corrected by grinding them and placing veneers on top.

Also, I have read that veneer
s are not a good option for people who grind teeth at night and I am one of them.

Please suggest what should i do,.

Thanks in advance.

What Can I Do If My Tooth Won’t Stay In Place?

Friday, April 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi

I paid for the Inman aligned through a local private dentist which pushed my top front teeth into place. My top tooth has move out of place again and I don’t know what to do about it. I am considering a veneer instead perhaps. Would this be appropriate? I went through the long course of wearing the aligned so I don’t want to go through this again but the one tooth appears to be stubborn and wont stay in place… This seems like the treatment was a waste now which is frustrating. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

I Want To Close The Gaps In My Teeth, What’s The Cheapest Way For Me To Do This?

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013
Q.

I can email you a clear picture of my teeth. I want to close my gaps and also change my fillings to white.
Please can i email you a picture for a quote? I have about 10 fillings and I have 4 gaps at the front. I am 29 years old. My dentist told me when I was 9 that the gap would close naturally, when I asked for a brace, but it never closed. I can’t afford hundreds of pounds of treatment so I am looking for the easiest and cheapest option available to me.

Would Braces Be Able To Help Me Now Instead Of Cosmetic Work?

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I would like to ask a question regarding orthodontic treatment I had done when I was younger through the NHS, I had braces in for a few years and even had two top teeth taken out to make room for my teeth whilst my braces were on to straighten my teeth, after few years my teeth didn’t straighten much and I was told this was because I have baby roots and due to this my teeth aren’t moving therefore my braces were removed and I had fillings put in, in a few places in my teeth to get rid of gaps etc due to my teeth being takin out. I never had a gap in my front two teeth,  but because I wore braces I now have a big gap and they always need to fill this in and say to me this is classed as cosmetic work and i keep explaining I never had a gap and it was caused by the orthodontic treatment which never worked, also the filling they put in only lasts few months and I have to keep getting this done, what I need to know is have you ever heard of baby roots and was this the case and if I did have them would braces still not work now that I’m 34, and what can I do to avoid paying for cosmetic work which wouldnt have needed doing if I didn’t have orthodontic treatment. many thanks

I Have A Gap In My Teeth, What Are My Treatment Options?

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi I was wondering if I could get your expert opinion on a problem that I am currently facing , my front teeth has a lot of gaps this is because in my childhood I had calcium deficiency so my milk teeth fell at irregular intervals and the milk teeth were replaced by new teeth after what seemed to be a long time, my upper section of teeth are a bit protruding, I have already consulted a dentist and he has advised me to go for braces, but to go for that option I have to been told that I will need to extract some teeth which I am not ready to under go, due to the simple fact that it seems like it could be a daunting task and I have never had anything like that done in the past… I would be extremely grateful if you could  please suggest  me some alternative forms of treatment I could undergo which aren’t as petrifying.
