How Much Does Composite Bonding Cost?

Monday, June 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I want to know how much it would be to get my teeth done by doing composite bonding. I have what you call baby adult teeth that have really effected me throughout my life. I have also got gaps at the bottom and also the top. I am very self conscious and I rarely smile which I hate as I would love to have lovely pearly whites that I could feel confident with. But the problem is I am 19 and now have to pay for treatment and I do have a job but only an apprenticeship which pays £2.73 an hour and I really want them done and want to know roughly how much it would cost.

How Can I Get My Composite Build Up Redone?

Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Q.

I had a composite build up done on my front four teeth two years ago. The acid erosion issue was with the front two only but the dentist suggested to get the front four done to achieve symmetry etc. Now I need to get the treatment redone because of staining. Is it possible for me to get the composite build up/composite veneer done on the front two only and have the composite removed from the side ones? Thanks.

How Can I Treat Chipped and Discoloured Teeth Without Using Replacements or Veneers?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I’ve had braces and my teeth are straight, but I chips in a few of my front teeth. I also have some discolouration and towards the end of the tooth it’s almost transparent, I think this may be due to enamel wear as I drink a lot of Coke. I’m looking to get cosmetic dentistry to fix this, but what would be the best option for me to get this fixed without getting veneers or completely replacing the tooth? Thank you.

What Are The Best Options For My Chipped Teeth?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015
Q.

I’m a 20 year old male and when I was younger I chipped my 2 front teeth, about 5-6 mm from the inner side of each tooth creating a small arch in the centre of my smile. I’m looking into the options I have to fix this. I’ve researched dental bonding and and composite veneers and would like any information on my options and what you as a professional see as the best option for me.

Thank you in advance.

Does Composite Filling Loosen Your Teeth?

Monday, April 27th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I am 23 years old. My front teeth had this black/brownish stain on the joint between the two. So I consulted a doctor an she did a composite filling on my teeth. Now I feel like it will fall off at any moment, it feels like I’ve lost the strength of my teeth. So my question to you is this: Does composite filling loosen your teeth’s strength drastically? What are the disadvantages of having a composite filling? Thank you.

What’s the Most Natural, Non-Invasive Way to Close a Gap Between the Teeth?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had braces before, but had them removed. During my treatment, my dentist had stripped between my from front two teeth as it was bigger than the next tooth. But after the removal, we felt that although the gap was filled, the bonding between the teeth is still not complete. I mean there is a small surface gap still visible.  I am worried about it and want to fix it in the most natural, non-invasive way possible. Kindly help, thank you.

I Have A Big Gap Between My Two Front Teeth And I Never Smile. What Would Be The Best Procedure For This?

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I would be so grateful for your advice. I have a big gap between my 2 front teeth and I never smile because of it. I am just wondering what would be the best procedure to close it? I’d also like to know the price of this procedure and the pros and cons involved.
I really want the gap gone or even just a little bit smaller as it is too big and people make fun of me because of it. I have heard about cosmetic bonding and I am interested in that. I have also seen on YouTube about rubber bands that can close the gap but I am not sure if this is safe. I hope you can help.

I’ve Had Crohn’s Disease Since The Age Of 18 And My Teeth Are Becoming Weaker. Which Treatments Should I Consider Before My Wedding?

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014
Q.

Dear Sir, I was diagnosed with CD at the age of 18 and prior to this, had fissure sealant treatment and had not had a single filling. My teeth were regularly checked and in good condition, strong and white.

Over the years, my teeth have become visibly more yellow, I have had fillings and the enamel has eroded and exposed the very unsightly dentine on many of my teeth. Some of them have uneven biting edges and are sharp. Until this year, my front teeth remained fairly unaffected, but now I’m getting marks on them, between them and they are getting thinned and more sensitive.

I’m getting married next year and am determined to have a better smile than I currently do. I bit the bullet and made an appointment to visit a local dentist earlier this year, who suggested using bonding to just even out the edges of my teeth, but mentioned this would be to the colour that my teeth are currently, which I’m very unhappy with.

My CD is now stable and I am mainly healthy, but hate the fact that my teeth continue to get worse – possible down to stomach acid? Do you have a suggestion as to what treatments may work to help me finally get the smile I dream of? Thank you in advance for reading and I look forward to receiving your response.

Kindest regards.

I Want To Have Braces To Close The Gap In The Middle Of My Smile. Are Braces Safe?

Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I need to have a tooth extracted and cosmetic bonding on my teeth as I’ve got a tooth under my gum. Is this safe to remove, as I am a little scared? I need to have this treatment done because I have a gap in the middle tooth and I want braces to close the gap, I was advised to this before I put braces on my teeth, so please could you advise me on what to do? Is it safe and what can I expect in terms of price when having such an operation.
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.
