Which Replacement Teeth Option Would be Right for Me?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I am a 63 year old man and my teeth are in need of a holiday. I am afraid to go ahead and have them removed because many years ago I had a partial palate made which just made me vomit so I never wore it. What can be done these days to prevent this? Once my teeth are removed there is no going back and because of my profession I need to look at least half decent and being on stage and vomiting my teeth out over an audience may not go over very well! Hope you can help. Thank you.

How Can I Get the Perfect Celebrity Smile?

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. I’ve always had trouble with my teeth since the age of about six when I got about 13 baby teeth taken out as they were discoloured and rotten due to the amount of fizzy juice I drank. I was wanting to look into getting white veneers as my current teeth are a bit discoloured and one front tooth is broken in two places, and I’ve also had root treatment on that tooth too. I’m basically looking to get the “perfect celebrity” white smile. What would your advice be?
Many thanks.

What Advice Can You Offer About Gingivectomy?

Friday, January 23rd, 2015
Q.

Good morning Dr Hughes. I would like some advice on Gingivectomy, as I would like to have this procedure done but have no idea where to go for this?

I am almost 30 and from since I can remember I have been embarrassed about my gummy smile.  My teeth are nice and straight but very small and when I smile wide all you can see is gums, or so I think.

I would just like some advice as to if this is safe and where to go, plus how much this generally costs.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards.

Which Veneers Would Be Best for Me?

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015
Q.

Hi there Dr Hughes. Please can you tell me which veneers I would need? I am on a small budget but require veneers for two of my teeth on either side.

I want something that will last and I am also a coffee and tea addict. My teeth are discolored and it is getting me down. One of my front teeth has a cap on it and I’m not sure if I am able to wear veneers. Also does it hurt? Is there any way I’d be able to get free help? I also have an exemption card. Please can you let me know the cost thanks again?  Many thanks.

Should I Choose Lumineers to Close Gaps?

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have gap between my front teeth, and I am not opting for braces because I know that gaps open up after some time. I was thinking about going for veneers but keeping in mind their durability and the fact that my teeth have to be trimmed, I am thinking about going for Lumineers. I’m just worried about if they will suit me? What should I go for? Thank you, any advice would be happily received.

How Much Would It Cost to Have Veneers Placed On All My Teeth?

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had many problems with my teeth since I fell pregnant with my son. As time has passed, they have become worse. I have cracks in my teeth and I’m starting to get pains in my mouth. As well as having these problems, I’ve become very self-conscious. As a mother of two children, it’s hard to have my children see my teeth when I get them to look after theirs. I wondered how much it would cost to have all of my teeth veneered? Also, if you arrange any payment plans? Thank you.

What is the Quickest and Most Affordable Way to Straighten Teeth?

Monday, January 12th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. My smile makes me look goofy. My two front teeth are big compared to the rest and it makes me feel horrible. I wouldn’t be able to pay for everything all at once, and would need some help with finance to pay out of my wages each month. I want my teeth at the top to be put back and in line with my bottom teeth, and for my teeth to be straightened out in the quickest and most affordable way. I am only 21. What would be my best option? Thank you for your help.

Would Veneers be the Best Treatment for my Darkened Tooth?

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I had root canal treatment on one of my front teeth over 5 years ago, and it has now got very dark/black. I have been very self-conscious about this and think a veneer on this tooth may be the best option? I am aware that the tooth is dead and the last time I had the root canal treatment they gave me a gum shield with liquid in it to whiten the tooth, but now it has got very dark and has been for last 2/3 years. I am aware of the costs and would be willing to pay it, could you give me advice please? Thank you.

How Can I Stop My Tooth From Chipping Even More?

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My right front tooth has been chipping away for a few years now, it started very small, not noticeable at all. A few days ago I notice a slightly bigger chip in the middle of the tooth. I can feel my tooth is very thin and quite weak in that area. I am just wondering if there is anything I can do to improve the look of it, or prevent it from chipping even more. I was thinking maybe to get my two front teeth filed down to match? Is this an option? I asked my dentist about this years ago but he said its nothing to worry about, just try not to drink sugary fluids. Please let me know my options. I am looking for prevention and a long term fix. Thanks for reading.

What Treatments are Best for Enamel Damage?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I’m quite sick and have suffered with bulimia on and off for the past year, being sick every few months.
My teeth feel strong and are still white, but I’m aware of enamel damage that can occur among other problems.
If my teeth are damaged, what treatment is available in cosmetic dentistry? And what is the price guide for treatments offered to patients like this?

Any advice would be so appreciated as I am starting to worry. Best wishes and thank you in advance.
