How can I correct my stained and chipped teeth?

Friday, June 1st, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I knocked out my two front teeth around 10 years ago when I was 11 years old. I have had braces fitted twice which alined the rest of my teeth however the front two are chipped due to my accident and one is shorter then the other, I would like a professional oppinion as to whether there is anything i can do to get my teeth looking ‘perfect’. I had to undergo procedures every 1-3 months for root treatment for around 2 years on the front teeth but during this time they began to disintergrate in the small gap that is now between them and have gone slightly darker. I have had my teeth whitened several times which does not seem to last long even though i have a healthy diet and do not smoke or drink things such as coffee or red wine as suggested by my dentist. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Kind regards.

Should antibiotic prophylaxis be given to someone with heart complications?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

I have recently been diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis caused by a congenital bicuspid aortic valve. I need some extensive dental procedures which may include at least one extraction, one or possibly two implants, a repaired or replaced crown and veneer, and a new crown or possibly a bridge. I am currently symptom free and not on any medications. Would you please advise me on any additional risks associated with any of the dental procedures mentioned. Also, do you recommend taking precautionary measures?
