I Want To Have The Perfect, Hollywood Smile. I Am Unsure Of Which Treatment Can Achieve This. Can You Help?

Friday, October 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello, Dr. I would like your advice please. I have never been happy with my teeth. They’re not too bad, but they’re not too good either. I want to have perfect teeth, as in a Hollywood smile. I am willing to pay whatever the costs are, except that I don’t know what I am looking for exactly? Is it veneers? I am unsure which product/service I need in order to achieve the smile that I want. Please could you advise?

Would really appreciate your advice. Thank you.

Is It Possible To Remove Onlays And Start Again? Will This Damage My Natural Teeth?

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’ve just recently had 2 onlays next to each other to on my upper set of teeth but the dentist filed them down too low after fitting them in. He then topped them up again with a filling material but they are still too low and do not meet the lower teeth. Is it possible to remove the onlays to start again? Will this damage my natural teeth? Is it bad to keep adding layers of filling over the onlays? My dentist is having difficulty and seems stuck with what to do. Thank you for your time.

I Am 17 Years Old And I’m Unhappy With The Way My Teeth Look. How Can I Find The Right Clinic?

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I am 17 years old and I am really unhappy with the way my teeth look and therefore I am currently trying to decide what will be the best procedure for me to get in order to correct my smile. I am thinking of getting porcelain veneers but I am very worried about where to get them done and how to go about the whole procedure. Could you recommend any places and let me know whether you think this procedure will be best for me? Thank you.

Can I Have My Teeth Trimmed Down And Would This Cause Any Sensitivity Or Pain?

Monday, October 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus, I am 34 year old, male. My two front teeth are too big for the others. Can the teeth be trimmed without having to wear braces, veneers, a cap and/or crowns? The second thing I would like to know is whether this would cause me any sensitivity problems? I don’t want any sensitivity or pain as I currently don’t have any tooth problems. I don’t want to use braces and would only trim 2 of my front teeth without the use of veneers. Is this possible? Thanks.

I Can’t Bring Myself To Get Into The Habit Of Brushing. Will My Teeth Fall Out Before I’m 21?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, I am 18 and I have been going to the dentist for as long as I can remember, when I was 7-10 yearS old I had all of my baby teeth removed due to an addiction to sweets as a child, after that point in time my adult teeth can through. When I as 14 I had to go to the orthodontist to have braces as my teeth were unaligned when they grew through. Ever since I was a young boy I never got into the habit of brushing my teeth, hence having at least 1 filling on each tooth which is what I have now. Even though I myself am very upset and embarrassed about my teeth I still cannot get into the habit of regularly brushing my teeth. I have recently got really bad decay and all of my tooth enamel is gone. I am especially concerned about losing all my teeth by the time I’m 21 and I seriously do not want that to happen. A few factors which need to be set are that I’m also a smoker and I know this will/can cause mouth cancer but I enjoy smoking and am not looking to quit any time soon. Is there any advice you can give me.

Over The Years I Have Lost Teeth Through Poor Oral Hygiene. Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Help Me?

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I’m 28 years old. In my younger days I was never made to to clean and look after my teeth. It was only until my teens that I wanted too. But by then my teeth weren’t so great. Over the years I’ve lost teeth. And now my front teeth are rotting from the gums. I’m so ashamed and embarrassed. And I feel my confidence draining away. Not even being able to smile. Even holding a conversation is getting hard as I don’t want everyone to later be talking about my teeth. Is there anything you can do to help me and put a big happy shining smile on my face please? I would be so grateful.

As A Teacher I Would Need Something Other Than Braces Treatment. Would You Recommend Tooth Trimming?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Gambroudes,
I have front teeth which are, in my opinion, too big for my mouth. I feel that when I smile they stand out too much.
I’ve been to several dentists. Some recommended not doing anything at all while others recommended braces. I feel that having braces at my age (30) is out of the question. I’m a teacher by profession so having braces might also present obstructions in the way I speak in class. I had braces before but it seems that the adjustments weren’t thorough.
I’ve been reading up on dental procedure where teeth are trimmed to a smaller size. Do you think that would help with my problem?
Thanks.

I Have Severe Periodontal Disease And This Affects My Confidence Greatly. Could You Give Me Advice On Which Steps To Take?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr. Gambroudes.  I have severe periodontal disease, most of my teeth are moving and some at the upper front have already shifted. I recently had some treatment from my local dentist and after doing an X-ray, we found out that most of the bones have eroded and it’s not looking good. Ive just started taking Doxycycline to hopefully save my gums. However, I am severely affected with the looks of my teeth and my confidence is absolutely down the drain. I hope you can advice me on what steps I should take.

Thank you.
