I’m a student so can’t afford dental treatment, what options do I have?

Friday, July 16th, 2010
Q.
hi Julian, I have had a growing concern lately with my front two teeth. One has moved forward and the rest of the teeth want to take its place behind but this is in the early stages. I’m only a student in 6th form and only have limited funds so what are my options as i want to stop anything worse happening before it does happen. Many thanks,

My tooth is really small because it has been grinded down over the years, what can I do to fix this?

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010
Q.
When i was eleven old i got my lateral incisor fitted with a crown because i found that they were pointy and small. I did the crowns over 11 years after and the dentist did a terrible job. Now the tooth has been grinded down so much that they are really small. I need to do over the crowns now 4 years after. Would veneers or lumineers be a better option for me so that they would not have to be grinded down any further? Please let me know asap. thanks.,

Can a smile makeover restore my partner’s confidence?

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010
Q.
hi, my partner of 15 years suffers with very bad teeth. Basically the NHS Dentist says there is nothing they can do for him, as he has all treatments, bridge work, crowns blah blah…. I know his confidence suffers as he always talks with his mouth closed and never smiles!! It has effected him very badly as he is now on anti depressants. Please can you e-mail me some info and possible prices for a full smile makeover. He was thinking going to Hungary or Poland, as money is tight. I would prefer him to have work done in the UK. He so deserves to have a beautiful smile!!,
