I Have Small Gaps Between My Front Four Teeth. Which Low Risk Treatment Can I Have To Fix This?

Friday, May 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have small gaps in my four front teeth, and my front two teeth have slightly more space than the other adjacent teeth. The two front teeth look bigger than the others when I smile. So what is the best way to fill all the gaps and improve, so I can have a beautiful smile without any risk or side effects. There are no cavities or pains in my teeth. I am a non-smoker and a non-drinker and a vegeterian. However, I take 3-4 cups of tea daily. So could you please advise me on what I could do? Thank you for your time.

I Fractured My Teeth When I Was Young And Now The Cracks Are Opening. Could You Offer Me Advice On How To Sort Them Out?

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. When I was a child I was involved in an accident and got run over by a lorry as I hit the ground I landed on my chin braking my jaw both sides and cracking a lot of my teeth. As I was only young and it was hair-line fractures through my teeth I was told there was nothing they could do. But now as an adult and after losing a few teeth all the cracks are opening and it’s only going to get worse. I was a heavy smoker and coffee drinker but I have given them up. Please could you offer some advice as to how I go about sorting them out.

A Had A Bad Slip And Snapped My Teeth. Would It Be Better To Use Cosmetic Bonding Or Veneers To Rebuild My Teeth?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark,

I’ve unfortunately slipped on a wet floor last week and landed on my jaw face down and have snapped off a third of both of my front teeth horizontally. There are also some minor cracks in the enamel which go up to the gum line in one tooth. My family’s NHS dentist covered the exposed roots over with a temporary white filling. I’ve got to leave it on for 2 weeks to see if the root decides to die off. He then suggested opting for composite bonding to re-build my teeth. I would really appreciate a second opinion from a cosmetic expert whether this was a sensible approach or whether veneers would be a better investment from the outset. Would the bonding method look okay and match the top half of my teeth? Can it be used to cover the cracks up to my gumline? Can it snap off easily as it’s quite a large area and further damage my existing teeth? Would be great to get your thoughts.

My Dentist Said That Veneers Would Look Too Big For Me. Would Bonding Work To Close My Gaps Instead?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have a large gap in front and little gaps around, I went to the dentist who did a model for me and he said if I close them with veneers they will look big and ugly. What other option of I have. I don’t mind closing it slightly. Also I have a denture on because of the surgery I had a whole ago so I don’t think a brace will be ideal as I need to take off denture to clean. Will bonding be ideal for me and also what’s the available – quick fix?

I’m 19 And I Have A Gap Between My Teeth. What Treatment Can Fix This And Will I Need A Frenectomy?

Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’m 19 years old and I’ve got gaps in my top teeth, especially between my 2 middle teeth, which is about 0.5cm wide. I think this is caused by my low maxillary labial fraenum, which is making the gap wider with time. This is really embarrassing for me and it affects my confidence. What kind of treatment do I need and what would be the estimated cost? Also, would I need to get a frenectomy afterwards?
Thank you for taking the time to advise me on this matter.

I Need A Quick Solution To Close My Gaps In Time For A Wedding This Summer? Would Cosmetic Bonding Or Veneers Work Well?

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi,

I have gaps between my 2 front teeth as well as the next ones adjacent to them. The gaps are 2mm and 3mm respectively. So that would mean all 4 front teeth needing attention?

So the middle gap of 2mm either side the 3mm gap. Plus my front tooth is slightly crooked.

What would be my best option as I needed a quick solution for a wedding in the summer. Veneers or cosmetic bonding? I really would like my smile back and feel very conscious of the gaps at the moment.

Thank you so much.

Braces Didn’t Work For Me. How Much Does It Cost To Have Cosmetic Bonding To Fill A 3mm Gap?

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope that you can help me out. I would like to know how much it costs to have tooth bonding, for gap closure between front two teeth for a 3mm gap? I have had a brace in the past but it didn’t work properly due to my age I think, I’m 26 years old and I just want  to experience a nice smile for once. Do you think this treatment can help me?
I want to feel confident while having photos taken and not have to hide away. Is there any other treatment that could help me? Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.

Monday, April 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. My husband broke his front tooth and wants to repair it, can you give me a rough estimate of what it would cost to fix this please? This happened recently. He put the broken bit back in, but has lost that part now. He is 65 years old. Can he get this fixed or repaired? Also, his teeth have become discoloured through smoking, do you think his smoking has caused his broken tooth? Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply to my enquiry.
