How Much Would a Full Smile Makeover Cost?

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015
Q.

How much work and how much will it cost to get a full smile makeover? I’m a single parent of two with no confidence due to really bad teeth, it has now effected my face shape due to having no back top teeth. All my bottom teeth are crooked and there are too many. My front tooth is pushed forward due to the next tooth pushing it out and I have half a tooth filled badly with a composite filling as the tooth is decayed.

Can You Recommend a Good Student Dentist?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I really need help with my teeth. All my front crowns are coming off and I find it hard to eat food as I’ve lost my confidence. I’m looking for a student dentist because I haven’t got to much money now. Can you recommend anyone? I did try the NHS  but they don’t seem to want to help. Can you help? My last dentist got struck off. I need new crowns and I have a front tooth missing and maybe some gum disease. Thank you.

Can Teeth be Re-Shaped?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have chipped teeth from an injury, but can teeth be shaped? It is only the tips that need to be filed and whitened.
So my teeth are strong and I do not want veneers, just my shaped and made very white. I want a consultation and to avoid veneers. There is a tooth that would require implants because it broke in half. How much would this cost? I would like great smile, thank you.

Is a Bridge Covered in Band 3 NHS Prices?

Thursday, April 30th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I have two teeth that need extracting and had asked my NHS dentist about having a fixed brace. I felt as though she was trying to sell me implants at a cost of £2000 each. She also advised that a bridge would cost about £1500. She did mention partial dentures, although I don’t feel this would be the right treatment for me. I had thought a bridge was covered in band 3 NHS prices? Can you advise please?

What Options Do I Have to Fully Restore My Smile?

Monday, March 30th, 2015
Q.

Due to a number of years suffering with depression I have neglected my teeth about as badly as you can imagine. I have very few teeth left as the rest are either removed or just rotten to the gum line and look horrific. now I’m at the stage where I can’t open mouth smile, and my eating options have become incredibly limited. I fortunately have always worked but I am now in a career where I have to work with people all day every day and I’m finding it too difficult to hide the issue. It’s making my job very difficult to do and facing people and family is become very awkward. I understand that my most realistic option is dentures. As I’m not such a high flyer I can’t afford implants at this stage, but I can’t allow this issue to continue. What are my realistic options? I’m very nervous and mortified to see a dentist though I know I’ll have to. I am terrified of the cost as I, like many others, do not have  high amounts of expendable income. Any help or directional advice would be greatly appreciated by myself and my family. Thank you, regards.

Can I Get Financial Help for Dental Implants?

Monday, March 23rd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I am hoping you can advise me about who to approach for financial help for implants. I am 50 years of age, and have in my opinion, looked after my appearance. However, although I have been a business person in the past, I have bipolar disorder, a condition which I am not in control of nor is it any fault of my own. However, after 21 years and many, many different medications and mood stabilizers I found it impossible to work any longer due to the effects of this awful condition. As if this change of life situation was not bad enough, I then noticed my teeth deteriorating, and have recently discovered it is connected to all the medications over the years as I suffer with dry mouth as a result. I have lost 2 teeth near the front since my birthday and found this more than devastating and a worsening impact on my already low moods. I have been looking for a new dentist in my area and although I’ve just registered with one, I have no faith they have the time or compassion to understand how this is making me feel. As I do not socialise much anymore this new situation is making me feel hopeless as I have not even been leaving the house at all. Is there anyone I can get advice from with regards to NHS help for implants, since in theory medication has been the main factor of the deterioration? I now feel at 50 my life is over as I cannot bear to look in the mirror and now isolate from people completely. I hope you can understand this is far more than vanity, and more about taking away any social interactions I am able to have when my mood and anxiety levels are not so low. Thank you.

Should I Go Abroad for Cheaper Dental Treatment?

Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. I’m thinking of going to India or Korea for possible implant dental work. Is it possible to get All-On-4 work done there? Do you think I am taking a risk? Are the dentists there as qualified as every time you speak to a UK dentist? They always make you feel that the work would be vastly inferior (though they don’t actually come out and say it) if you should go any where other than the UK. I am so confused as I feel that dentists in the UK actually charge prices that are so expensive, and I cannot see why. I am so confused and the whole thing is getting me down with the conflicting points of view. I really would appreciate your expertise and opinion. P.S. Are you also very expensive? As I would prefer not to travel abroad, but the high prices of dentists in the UK leave me little choice.

Is There Financial Help Available for Dental Implants?

Thursday, March 12th, 2015
Q.

I have quite an extensive medical history including severe SLE and Antiphospholipid Syndrome as well as other ailments. I have always had problems with my teeth and gums. I have receding gums and tooth loss. I have a pronounced top jaw and had fixed braces which were removed because of the SLE when I was 13, and I’m now 30.
Recently, I had aortic heart valve replacement surgery. I’m worried my declining tooth health is going to have a major impact on the heart and need advice on what to do next. I would like to possibly look into the teeth in a day option but I’m worried about the cost. Is there help available for someone with such health problems? I work full time when I’m well enough but can’t seem to do more to be able to save enough money. I obviously take a lot of medication and blood thinners. My teeth are a major source of problems for me and I’ve noticed more recently a trigger for a little depression due to comments from people due to their appearance.
I’m desperate for any help you can provide.

What Options do I Have to Replace my Partial Denture?

Friday, March 6th, 2015
Q.

I’ve just had an old bridge removed as it kept getting infected so I’ve now got a partial denture to replace the three missing teeth. It is already annoying me and giving me headaches. I just can’t wait to get it out of my mouth. It’s the left front tooth then the two next to it. I do have other teeth at both sides but the strain from the denture on my other front tooth is worrying me as it aches when I take the denture out. Could you advise me on what options I have and the cost?

How Much Would It Cost for 5 Teeth on a Bridge?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015
Q.

How much does it cost for 5 teeth on a bridge please? For the top three at the front and two at the side? I have been to the dentist and they’re too dear so I’m just getting different quotes. Could you get back to me please? Thanks. It’s important because I’m going away in May for two weeks and I can’t smile. I need them doing. I’ve been looking everywhere on different sites and need to get them done as soon as possible. My other teeth are all fine, it’s just these ones that need work.
