How Can I Replace my Missing Teeth?

Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have seven back teeth missing, all because of neglect that occurred when I was younger. I am now 46 years old. I want something done about it, maybe two teeth so then I can have a bridge. So what is the best option for me? Am I able to have my teeth done in one day? I am fed up all because of my upper back teeth and a couple of the side teeth are missing. I also have false dentures, but find it very hard to eat and the food gets trapped. Thank you.

Are Emax Veneers Good Quality Veneers?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Q.

I had CEREC veneers done 2.5 years ago. Last week one broke off (it was my UL4) it came off whilst eating a soft bread roll & had snapped in two (the larger bit I rescued the small top bit I accidentally swallowed) I went back to the dentist who carried out the work and there is a new dentist there who informed me that the tooth in question has little enamel left, it is mainly dentin. I’d like to have the veneer replaced but the dentist can’t guarantee it will bond, and if it comes off I’ll have to pay £550 again for another one. He plans to use an Emax veneer, are these good quality reputable veneers? He did say a crown is another option (at the same cost, however this may result in needing root canal later, again costing money). I’m unsure as to what would be the best option and wonder if there should be any guarantee? My original CEREC came with a 2 year guarantee but I now seem to be getting offered nothing and ultimately fear I could end up spending £500+ on one tooth more regularly than I’d like to.

How Much Would Dental Implants Cost?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I’m really upset about my teeth, as in constantly thinking and being upset about them. I don’t feel like myself at all. I’m quiet young still, and have had quiet a lot of work in the past. I recently got told I’m going to lose one of my teeth, which really has upset me and I cant stop thinking about it. I also need root canal but they said even if they do root canal they might not be able to save the tooth because it’s really infected. I’ve had crowns in the past. I will also need fillings in a couple of my teeth. Now I don’t know what to do. The cost is going to be so much and I don’t know what to do. Even if I get the problem sorted my teeth will still look horrid. I don’t know what my options are. What is best to do because I’m feeling very stuck and trapped. I think I’m going to need dental implants inside my mouth. How much would that cost? Thank you.

My Teeth and Gums are in Poor Condition. What Can Be Done?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I would like to know what treatments are available for me. I have have no back teeth on the top and just my back ones on the bottom and they are rotting away. My front ones have small cavities in different teeth. I really need help and want some good news that there is something available for me. I’m really embarrassed and depressed about how bad I’ve let them get. I’m always getting sore throats and pains, and my gums are not feeling in great condition. If I don’t get help now I will have no teeth left very soon. I’m so insecure it’s draining my life.

How Much Would it Cost to Have a Full Set of Top Teeth Placed?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I’m 26 years old and a mum of 3. I need some help. I have 6 teeth missing on top and as it stands now, the ones that are left are all broken. My front tooth is snapped in 3 places and just hanging by the root. It moves every time I eat, talk, drink and even when I’m coughing. I hate it so much, I just want it to end. I am scared of dentists, my dentist has messed up so much. I feel so down and depressed because of it. I am always in pain and nothing helps. I am on painkillers all the time, I hate it. I can’t eat or talk properly. I don’t even like talking to people. How much would it cost to have a full set of teeth on top?

How Long do Lumineers Stay on the Teeth?

Monday, March 16th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I wanted to know how long Lumineers stay on the teeth? Also, if I go for veneers, are they going to grind my original teeth so that I will have no option but to always have veneers on them? Which one is the better option for me? I want to change my smile as I’m not happy with it. Can I have the procedure done on a payment plan? I want to go for Lumineers because I have heard it doesn’t damage your original teeth, but they stay on for shorter time than veneers. I don’t want them to grind my natural teeth though. What should I do?

What Treatment is Available for Receded Gums?

Monday, March 16th, 2015
Q.

I have receded gums and have gaps in my teeth where the gum has receded. Can you suggest any treatment for this please? I also have grey fillings, can these be replaced with white ones and how much would the cost be? And can I get this done at my own dentist or will I need to see a cosmetic dentist? I am really in need of something done as it’s so depressing because I am worried I might lose all my teeth because of this problem. I am 55 years old. Many thanks, I hope you can help.

How Can I Get Rid of Yellow Lines on my Teeth?

Friday, March 13th, 2015
Q.

I had my two front teeth filled as I had a gap. Now I have two yellow lines on my front teeth you can see really clearly. I have tried evey toothpaste there is and none of them work. I don’t want to have anything else done to them. I’m a bit gutted about the fact that I went to my dentist with nice white teeth and now I hate them. When I spoke to my dentist he said there is nothing I can do. Gutted! Please tell me how to get rid of it.

How Can I Get Help With My Missing Teeth?

Friday, March 13th, 2015
Q.

I am a 32 year old female who has lost her front bridge because of a car crash. I am now on jobseekers and also getting bullied (the police are helping). I started to self harm and I hate myself for starting that. I do not want to seem vain but I am missing 3 teeth in the front. Everyday life is hard to deal with. My wish was to have an family but I no longer want that now as I think who would want someone like me with no teeth? Please help me, I really don’t want to give up on life. I do not know how or where to start. I need any help or info. Many thanks, looking forward to hearing from anyone.

What Options Do I Have as a Nervous Patient?

Thursday, March 12th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have a huge fear of the dentist. I need a lot of work done and ultimately want to get caps or crowns on all my teeth so they look nice for the first time in my life.

Because of my fear I am looking for a dentist that will knock me out so I don’t know what is going on.

I can no longer eat properly for fear of one of my teeth falling out so I tend to just have liquid food, so I don’t have to bite down or chew.

I also need a finance option, as I know a lot of work needs to be done and wont be able to afford all of the treatment up front.

Please help.
