Would facial symmetry be ruined by removing canine tooth?

Monday, July 30th, 2012
Q.

Hello, I am 24 years old and interested in correcting my teeth. I have had braces before (when i was around 15-16, for a year), however, my teeth aren’t aligned properly. I don’t have an overbite or under bite.One of my lower central incisors is crooked.So the bottom 4 incisors arent in a proper order.My bottom canines are big and closer to the incisors than the molars.Also, my upper 6 teeth are a bit huge.

My dentist said that i have a good profile and don’t need braces for my upper teeth, but i will need to extract the C1 lateral incisor from my lower teeth (to avoid crowding) and have braces added. Apart from this extraction, 2 wisdom teeth need to be removed as well.

My question is : wouldn’t there be no symmetry since only one tooth is being removed and also wouldn’t there be a gap between my lower incisors? Would you suggest a similar treatment? your thoughts please and thanks in advance.

What procedures are available to repair or cover filled teeth or replace them?

Friday, December 3rd, 2010
Q.

Hi there,

I am 26 years of age and I have thought about getting porcelain veneers for my 8 smile teeth. I also have quite weak teeth and most are heavily filled. I am getting fed up having to have my teeth re-filled on a seemingly continual basis. I wanted some advice on what procedures are available to repair or cover filled teeth or replace them. I understand that I will loose the sensation in my teeth if I under go cosmetic work on them but that really doesn’t concern me. Thanks very much for any advice that you can give me. An Idea of costs involved for the various procedures available would also greatly help.

I have a missing upper left molar I have been recommended to have a bridge. What are my options

Saturday, March 28th, 2009
Q.
I have a missing upper left molar due to the fact that I had acrown fitted which did not take. I have now been recommended to have a bridge fitted, but do not feel that I have had the different types explained to me. I have been quoted £450 & £600. I have been told that one of the proceedures is called Maryland but after reading the details on the website I am even more cofused, The procedure shown to fit a bridge seems to consist of two crowns with a false tootha attached would this be the higher quote do you think. What procedure would you recommend? Regards

Can ceramic crowns be built up? I suffer from TMJ in the worst way

Saturday, March 28th, 2009
Q.
Can ceramic crowns be built up? I hope that’s not a dumb question. I suffer from TMJ in the worst way. My dentist put crowns on all my molars to correct my TMJ. Now it’s worse than ever. I think the top crowns are too short. i think he did this to get my bite in line. the pressure on my joint is constant now not to mention everything else. my front teeth are now banging against each other when i talk. i really believe they are too short. I’m in debt because of this dental work. I cant afford to have them taken off and redone. I’m hoping they can just be built up.

With the replacement of crowns and addition of lumineer veneers will gums recede and create more plaque?

Saturday, March 28th, 2009
Q.
My dentist is going to replace crowns on the 2 front teeth. He has also suggested to put lumineer vaneers on the two teeth next to the crowns, for cosmetic reasons. Will he have to scrabe the teeth first? Will there be any problems in the future ie if the gums recede? ( I am 53 years old). Will the teeth be affected in any way because of the vaneer ie collect more plaque? especially near the gums?
