I’m Worried By My Worn Down Teeth, My Dentist Doesn’t Think Crowns Are Suitable. What Can I Do?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013
Q.

My upper back teeth are worn down and I’ve never had crowns fitted.  My dentist won’t address my concerns and said to leave
them as they are. I’m 43 years
old. My lower teeth are
capped and I have a denture on the other side. The advice given is to leave them for another year. I think the lack of length of the teeth
on both upper back set will be too short to address with crowns.
Due to immune problems with my health for many years and allergies
to foods, my teeth have suffered as
a result. I look forward to receiving your advice.

I Have Not Visited The Dentist For Some Time As I Have An Overwhelming Fear. I Need My Cracked Teeth Fixed.

Friday, November 1st, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have not visited a dentist in a long time, this has lead to an overwhelming fear which I find hard to overcome.

Due to this, my four wisdom teeth are broken in half and have been this way for some time, some of the rear teeth are cracked slightly and I have half a tooth on my left side.

I was working with the military
for a few years, and with a bad diet and lack of dental hygiene, this has unfortunately developed.

I have not visited a dentist due to fear – is it possible to seek help through the NHS for elective surgery to fix my teeth?

My Dentist Has Told Me That My Lower Teeth Are Down To The Dentine. I Am Unaware Of What To Do About This Problem. Any Advice?

Thursday, October 31st, 2013
Q.

I had my 2 front teeth crowned about 26 years ago and they are still okay. However at a recent check up my dentist told me that I was down to the dentine on my lower teeth and this was caused by the crowns. I am to be fitted with a night guard – do you think this is simply a stop gap – as my dentist did mention that the expensive option of having them all capped would probably be the best solution. I have some teeth missing already but am unsure of what could be done on the NHS and do you think this cost would be per tooth? I will have to save like mad but I’m not sure what I am looking at for the best results really. Any help would be gratefully received.

I’ve Not Looked After My Oral Heath Recently And Would Like To Know If I Could Get Implants Through The NHS?

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Shaffie, I hope you can help. I used to be really good at going to see my dentist and looking after my teeth, but when I was a child and teens, my dad and  I moved and went to a new dentist and he was really hurting me and was rough. After that I stopped looking after my teeth as well as I should, I did not go any dentist until my teeth needed pulling, I know I don’t look after my teeth the way I should. I would like to know if I could get tooth implants on the NHS, and if not, how much would each one cost individually? Thank you for your time and consideration in advance.

I Recently Had Four Crowns Fitted But Have Come To The Conclusion They Are Too Long, Is It Possible To Have Them Shortened?

Monday, October 21st, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’ve recently had 4 crowns fitted on my upper 4 front teeth.

I thought they looked okay before I had them cemented in place but after a few days with them I’ve come to the conclusion they are too long. Other people have commented on this also. They are also brighter than my other teeth, but this was not so noticeable in the dentist chair and I know that can not be fixed now.

I was wondering is it possible to have Zirconia crowns shortened and reshaped at the bottom and if so by how much, 1mm maybe?

I Had Implants Done Abroad, And I Need The Crowns My Dentist Sent By Courier To Be Fitted In The UK. How Would This Be Done?

Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Shaffie. I already have two dental implants done abroad. The crowns had to be replaced because they were not firm, my dentist took new teeth impressions and had new crowns made, but unfortunately they were not ready when I left for my studies in the UK. My dentist has sent them to me by courier. I would like to find out if I can have them fitted here in the UK? I am currently studying in Cardiff. How much would it cost to fit them? Would a dentist be willing to take on a patient just to fit already prepared crowns? You would really be helping me out if you could offer any advice. Thanks.

I Want A Hollywood Smile, Do I Have To Get Crowns To Achieve This And How Much Does This Cost?

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013
Q.

Good afternoon.
How much does it cost to put crowns in for all teeth? Also how long its take to do that and is it possible to get this done on credit?
Is it there warranty for teeth or not?
I have a crown on my side teeth. Is it possible to change to new a one and can I have my own crowns on it as well? I want nice, white teeth like a Hollywood smile.
Or maybe you have a different way of doing this?
Also do you have an office in Sheffield? What kind of costs am I looking at to start to do that?
And is that is under Norcoze? Thank you, I hope you can help me with these problems.

My Son Grinds His Teeth, And His Dentist Has Recommended Veneers. Is This The Only Suitable Treatment?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi, my son of 20 years grinds his teeth a lot. He visited the dentist last week and she has said he needs veneers on his four front teeth as their particularly small. I am quite worried as he seems so young. Is there something else they can do? It seems she did not really consult him with any other option. I am also concerned because it seems from reading about them that they do not last too long. Can his teeth not be crowned? Please help.

I’m Pregnant And I Want To Know If I Can Get Crowns Fitted Through The NHS?

Thursday, September 12th, 2013
Q.

Hi, hello, my problem is that I’m eight weeks pregnant and have very bad discoloured teeth, do you know if I could get crowns free on the NHS? I am twenty one years old and I have always had quite bad teeth. The dentist told my mother that there is only had one layer of enamel on my teeth. She paid for me to go private when I was a teenager but I have a front right tooth which is nearly orange, please can you help me? Do you think they should be crowned and will I have to pay? I’m afraid I cannot afford to pay for them and it is really bad looking and it’s really getting me down. I hope you can provide me with the advice I need. Thank you for your time.

Hello, What Kind Of Treatment Am I Looking At To Fix My Overbite?

Thursday, September 5th, 2013
Q.

Hello, what I would like to inform you is that I have slightly prominent teeth with an overbite that is off-centre to the right of my mouth and I would like this corrected so that my teeth would not be prominent and also in-line with my bottom row, this is quite a disconcerting problem for me at this time. I would be open to all available options and opinions but I’d also like to state that my two front teeth at the top are crowns and are also very long, and this is also something which bothers me. Is there anyway that these problems could be rectified and what exactly would the treatment involve?

Thank You and Kind Regards.
