I Have Gaps Caused By Gum Disease. Please Could You Advise Me On What I Could Do To Fill These Gaps?

Friday, September 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have two gaps in my teeth, one gap is on the bottom row and one gap is on the top row of teeth.
They aren’t that large and I do have adjacent teeth. Both gaps are close to the gum so you can see through it a bit and it makes me very nervous talking to people.
Also they are not from a missing tooth it was from gum disease. I had that which caused pockets to appear and then gaps. Please could you advise me on what I could do to fill the gaps?

I Had My Veneers Filed Down But Now They Are Too Small. Would Cosmetic Bonding Help In This Case?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Gambroudes, I recently got composite veneers, 8 top and 8 bottom. However when I first saw them I thought they were two long and bulky so I asked to get them shaved down a bit. But now that I’ve had them I feel as if they are too short as I have quite big lips and unless I am smiling really big you can’t really notice that I have even had my teeth done. I’m regretting my decision to have them shaved down. Is there anyway I can go back and add more composite bonding to make them a tiny bit longer in length? Or what are my other options? I’m really unhappy and am sad everytime I look at them. Kind regards.

Hi Mark. I Used To Wear Braces But Now My Teeth Are Slipping Back. Would Using Invisalign To Correct This Be Wise?

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I had braces for over 3 years between the ages of 12-15, I struggled to wear my retainer as I should of and as a result, my lateral incisor has started to slip back and regress behind my front teeth. I am now 23 and 3 years ago I decided to get he a direct composite applied to it in order to ‘build up’ the tooth to be in line with my existing teeth. My question is how long does this composite usually last and should I think about getting it replaced? I think the tooth is still regressing and my overbite is more prominent as well, would thinking of getting braces like Invisalign be wise?

I Have Front Tooth Gap. Is There An Option To Get Two Veneers And Get The Rest Whitened Or Would That Look Weird?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hey Mark. I have a gap between my two front teeth on the top set of my jaw, I have already had braces when I was younger but they didn’t seem to work. I was wondering what options I have to close this gap? E.g. Veneers or bonding? Is there an option just to get two veneers put in (the two front teeth) and get the rest whitened or will that look weird? Also what would be the most effective treatment? Could you please advise me on prices too?

Thank you.

Good Morning. Is There Any Way I Can Whiten My Teeth Without Having To Go To The Dentist?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014
Q.

Good morning Dr Hughes. I want to know how to get rid of stains of my two front teeth. I would really want them whiter but I’m too nervous to go and see the dentist. I’m getting married in 2015 and I would like them to be whiter by then. Is there anything I can try at home? I’m brushing my teeth with pearl shine toothpaste, is there anything else could I try? Can you help me? My parents say I should go to the dentist locally but I’m too nervous. Thank you.

I Have A Single Gap On Both Sets Of Teeth And I Would Like To Know How To Get Them Removed?

Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’m wondering if you can help me. I have a single gap in my teeth between the front two teeth both upper and lower jaw. I have always been conscious about it so am wondering at what the cost is so that I can have these gaps removed? The gap on the top is roughly around 2-3 mm in length and the gap on the bottom is about 1-2 mm. Would I need braces to fix this problem? I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards.

My Teeth Seem To Be Thinning. Is There Another Treatment Out There Which Is Less Invasive Then Dental Veneers?

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. My teeth seem to be thinning a little bit, I have a baby tooth due to the fact my adult tooth has grown in sideways in my gum and I would like them to be whiter. I have considered veneers before but the idea of shaving down my teeth scares me too much. I was wondering if there would be some sort of alternative that would not damage my own teeth so much? Perhaps something that can just be put over the top of them? If so can you provide an approximate price? Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.

My Front Tooth Is Skewed And Has Grown Above The Other Ones. Which Treatment Other Than Braces Would Be Suitable To Correct This?

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi, I have a front tooth that has grown up above all the other ones in the gum, it is the only one that is skewed and moving a bit above the right one. I get a hard time having to talk cause only the gap appears until I smile and reveal them. I would like to know the best possible, non-expensive procedure to have it in line with the others but I do not want to go for braces. I have heard of veneers, dental and cosmetic bonding, but could any of them be an option? Any other method? Thanks.

The Gap In My Smile Is Starting To Mess With My Confidence. Would Cosmetic Bonding Be Available Through The NHS As I’m Under 18?

Friday, July 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello, I’m under 18 years old and have a gap between my teeth and Its really starting to mess with confidence. I’ve had it since I lost my baby teeth, it’s not very big, only about a quarter of a centimetre but to me it’s a lot. My dentist tells me I don’t need braces but the two teeth next to my front top teeth aren’t straight. But anyway I’m not bothered about those it’s just my gap. I have very thin teeth as it is so I was wondering if tooth bonding would be free on the NHS as I’m 14?

I Have A Clean Chip In One Front Tooth Which Has Left A Huge Gap. Which Treatment Would I Need To Build It Back Up?

Monday, June 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Moore, I have one tooth which is just right of the front in the top set which has a clean chip in it, meaning that its completely flat and is now only coming out all but millimetres, so you can see there is a tooth there but at the same time it leaves a huge gap

would this be able to be built up on or would an implant be the only option? I need something done. I’m just unaware of the different types of treatment available and I’d appreciate your advice. Thank you for your time. It would be great to hear back from you.
