Is There an Alternative to Having a Dental Plate?

Friday, March 20th, 2015
Q.

I have a tooth on a plate, it is the third one in from the front. I have had it for a long time but it doesn’t feel as secure as before. I have been advised to have an implant by my dentist, and I can’t have a bridge as the other teeth are not too strong and are filled quite heavily. But I would rather have another single tooth, due to the expense. Is there a procedure where the tooth can be put on with 2 clips attached to the two surrounding teeth, rather than a plate? I would be grateful for any advice.

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.

Should I Go for Shade B2 or B3 for a Full Mouth Restoration?

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015
Q.

I am trying to decide between B2 and B3 shade for a full mouth restoration. I am a 54 year old female and I have a big smile and I am pretty. My dentist thinks B2 is too white. I love the look of upper white and he thinks it looks unnatural. I don’t want to glow in the dark but I want to look clean and bright, what is your opinion on shade other than following my own
thoughts?Also what is the trend? Thank you.

Why Is My Tooth Hurting So Much?

Friday, March 6th, 2015
Q.

Hi. Earlier this week I had a bad tooth ache so I went to the dental practice and I was told I have to have a tooth removed. I explained to the woman that the pain was constant and I couldn’t lay on the side of my face so she gave me amoxicillin to take for a week. As time has gone on the pain has got worse, and there’s swelling as the tooth is hurting my jaw and is starting to ache. I also have a sharp shooting pain down my whole gum the left side. So the question I wanted to ask was why? My jaw started to hurt and why is the pain spreading down my whole gum?

Why Do My Teeth Ache all the Time?

Friday, March 6th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have been having some problems with my teeth now for some time, probably nearly a year. They ache and hurt all the time it seems. Due to this my teeth have started to move; my two front teeth now overlap causing a gap between the others next to it. I was told by the dentist this was normal and due to my jaw changing shape and my teeth rearranging to suit, but I was told it may last years and come and go. I am getting really worried now that the pain is not going to go and my teeth are going to be even less straight then they already are, and overlap further. I am also worried it’s not even this and it’s something else and my teeth might become loose and fall out.

Can I Have My Tooth Polished So It Doesn’t Feel Rough?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had a filling done on my tooth and the dentist put a clamp over it and scratched the surface, leaving it feeling rough. Next time I was in I mentioned it and he buffed the tooth surface. Now the whole thing feels rough and a bit sensitive. The rest of my teeth are smooth and shiny feeling, can it be fixed? Or is my tooth now completely damaged and irreparable? Will this lead to my tooth decaying and having to be removed? Many thanks in advance.

Could I Have a Small Filling Fitted That Holds a Veneer Without Damaging It?

Monday, March 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hello. Is it possible to have a small filling at the back of a tooth that a holds a veneer without damaging the veneer? If not, what is the best treatment pathway for the tooth in question? I would also like to know how successful the treatment would be and how high a percentage of success there is regarding this filling being completed without damaging the veneer. If the veneer were to be damaged, could I have another veneer fitted once the filling is completed? Many thanks.

How Much Would It Cost for my Son to Have All His Teeth Removed?

Friday, February 20th, 2015
Q.

Hello. My son has very bad teeth so has to have all of them out, but he lost bone in an accident too. So roughly how much would it cost for that and how long would it take? He’s only 17 but I know I have to wait until he is 20 to have it done, would I be able to pay in installments or pay all at once? So could you send me a breakdown or payment from each teeth and bone graft? He’s in a lot of pain so they are looking to see if he has got gum problems too. If so, would that be a problem too? Thank you.

What Treatment is Best for Overlapping Teeth?

Friday, February 20th, 2015
Q.

Hey there,

I’m looking into getting my teeth fixed. I have two pushed out canines, which due to them being pushed out, has ultimately left the remaining teeth being pushed to the side. One of my two main teeth is now overlapping the other. The bottom teeth are not great but i am less bothered by those as I am the top teeth. I’m looking for the fastest and most effective way of getting this sorted avoiding standard metal braces across the front of me teeth.
Can you help?

All the best, thanks.

Which is Better: Zoom! or Enlighten Whitening?

Thursday, February 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello! Just a quick question about 2 tooth whitening systems. Now my dentist is about to whiten my teeth, and he uses the Philips Zoom! Nite White system. However, I am questioning whether this system is as good as the Enlighten Deep Bleaching system. I was wondering if you could give me the ins and outs of both, as although I do trust my dentist, I accept that he may be biased towards the system he uses. Any advice on these 2 systems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
