Can I have a veneer put on my sharp canine tooth?

Monday, June 6th, 2011
Q.

Hello Doctor

I have a sharp canine tooth which is not aesthetically pleasing and I wondered if it would be safe to have a porcelain veneer put on it?

Additionally, my two front teeth are longer than I’d like them to be and wondered if it was safe to have they filed down and I wondered how much that would cost on average and if it would cause any future problems?

Lastly, is teeth whitening safe?

thank you for your time

Is cosmetic bonding the best option for my teeth?

Monday, June 6th, 2011
Q.

Hello Dr. Sunita Verma i just have a quick question about bonding. I am 15 years old and i just have gotten my canines replaced because i was missing my upper laterals, so they made my canines that replaced my laterals look like laterals but i still have my baby canines that have never fallen out and (they are my 3rd teeth from my centrals) and my dentist said eventually they will fall out. What would be my options if they do fall out? Also i have a minor gap in my two front teeth. What would be the cost to bond those together and make them longer? or what do you think is my best option with my situation? Thank you for your time and hopefully hear back with a response :)

Has teeth whitening given me craze lines?

Friday, June 3rd, 2011
Q.

Dear Dentist

I had my teeth whitening in house using 27% Hydrogen Peroxide about 2 months ago. I noticed I have craze lines since. Can a high percentage cause crazing?

Also can you feel crazes in teeth because I can hold ice in my teeth and literally go straight from hot to cold nicely and eat nuts etc? But sometimes in the wind I�ll breathe then I�ll wet my teeth after and they tingle/burn. Is this a sign of cracked teeth or just sensitivity? As I feel I have damaged them now due to the whitening?

Regards

My new crowns are too white, is there anything I can do?

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr. Verma,
I just had 14 lava (porcelain) crowns permanently cemented on upper 14 teeth and they are TOO white. They did not look this white when I signed and approved them. Is there any way you can tone them down once they are on permanently? I am a bit nervous on how to ask current dentist about this as they spent a lot of time with me trying to choose the correct color white. There are simply too many colors of white to choose from –

Thank-you,

Can a back tooth support a neighbouring false tooth?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hello doctor, hope you can help

can a metal very back tooth crown support a neighbouring false tooth w out a bridge to other tooth?i know the best thing is a bridge but to save cutting another healthy will one crown be strong enough? the missing tooth is second from d back so it will be tooth colour but the very back tooth can be metal because it cannot be seen then i will get partial dentures attached to the bottom very back tooth so the opposing tooth to the false tooth will be a denture many thanks for you time
