How long do dental implants last?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

I’m 20 and got a dental implant 2weeks ago, as I’m young I’m really anxious on the long term issues. Do crowns on implants become loose or fall out frequently, as far as your as your aware. It just that there a lot things you read on the internet about loose screws and crowns etc. I know you trust everything you read on the internet, it that its a life long decision and I would greatly appreciate the opinion of a expert. And if there was a time period in the life of the implant where instances such ad these where likely to occur

Teeth whitening treatments don’t seem to be working, would lumineers be a good option?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

My teeth and gums are healthy I do have one implant at the front which Im very pleased with and one crown which is doing fine. I have some filling but my main complaint now is I really want white teeth as ive tryed whitening treatment but not enough of a change for me I want something to work quickly and be how I want to look from the start. My teeth are very straight and I was thinking that Lumineers may be the way forward as I dont want my teeth worked on or to much preparation if possible. Plus would I have to do something with the Implant and Crown or can this go over the top.

I have a drooping eyelid after a crown procedure, is this normal?

Thursday, August 25th, 2011
Q.

I received a Cerec crown on my #19 tooth about five weeks ago.
Because of the great discomfort I experienced afterwards, even after adjustments, my dentist has agreed to replace the crown with a “regular” one. However, shortly after the Cerec procedure I developed a drooping eyelid on the same side of my face. Could any aspect of the procedure have caused this? The amount of spray used seemed excessive and the wanding procedure took much longer than I had been led to expect and involved a lot of very uncomfortable tugging of areas around my mouth and cheeks. What is the content of the spray? Could the wanding have effected my facial muscles? Have you heard of any similar experiences?
Thank you, Doctor

Could I be allergic to my crown?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

I had a crown placed on a back molar on July 5th, 2011. I was told it was a ceramic crown, with glass Ionimic cement with something called Metho Metholonate in the glue or cement. I have experienced hives in the warmest places of my body, every night, during sleep. I wake up at 5 am covered with large itchy welts that are even on my face and head. I was told there was no metal in the ceramic cap placed on my tooth. I was given a shot in the tooth area, and was awake during the process. Is it possible that I am still allergic to some of this anesthetic, or that there is some kind of alloy in the ceramic that is triggering these hives. I am at wit’s end. I haven’t got a food allergy, nor clothes soap etc. All have been tried and I still have these. Can you shed some light on the possible cause of these hives? I am taking two 25 mg. tablets of Hydroxyzine Hcl per night, and still experience the hives. Thanks you for your kind consideration.

I need implants to replace my missing teeth, but I am worried about the cost

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

Hi,
I’ve been researching dental implants and I’d love to be able to get them. I have bad teeth, partly because I haven’t looked after them enough and also due to a psychological disorder (dismorphophobia caused me to brush my teeth 20 – 40 times per day in my teens/early 20’s).

Also, when I was very young, I had an accident causing the top front 4 teeth to crack and have had crowns since around age 10 – the dysmorphophobia condition stems from this.

These 4 teeth and 2 others next to the canine on the left side of the upper jaw are where I’d like implants (as soon as possible, I’d like more on the other side of the same row later).

My main question is about the cost – can the 4 teeth be replaced with 2 implants, with the other 2 teeth replaced with 1 implant along with bridges?

I don’t have good credit, so will be taking out an expensive loan to pay for the treatment, so I’d like to know if the above proposal is a reasonable request (rather than 1 implant per tooth), and one which would be a lasting solution.

Many thanks for your time.

I have chipped two of my teeth, would crowns or veneers be a good option?

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011
Q.

Hi my 2 front teeth are chipped from an accident that happened last year, (one is only missing a thrid of the tooth and the other is missing 2/3rds of the tooth ) i don’t know whether to get Veneers or a Crown done ? I am scared that a veneer will just snap of and that they will have to grind away nearly all of my tooth for a crown. I have also had both nerves removed in the teeth. Thanks for your help

My crown doesn’t match the opposite side, what do i do now?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr Verma, i recently had a root canal and crown placed over one of my front teeth I had never had any dental work like that done before,because of the fact i have had braces for most of my life. after i’d had it done the dentist and the assistance told me it looked great, so i get home and i notice it’s not quite right so i go back to the dentist to tell them about some problems with the crown (it’s obvious that it is too short and a little whiter in comparison to the opposite tooth) and now i have to pay to get the opposite tooth crowned! i feel very embarrassed, hurt, and over all depressed over this situation iam in now, i just finally want a perfect smile. please help, what do i do now?
