I Have A Gap That Looks Like A Black Triangle Between My Teeth. Is It Best To Use Veneers?

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. How do I remove a 1 millimetre gap between my front two teeth? The gap appears to be in an inverted v (^) shape. All the other teeth are normal and are in sufficient size and I am not missing any other teeth. There is no problem with the size of my other teeth. What will be the cost of treatment? Is it is best to use veneers? Please advise me. How can I have veneers without disturbing the normal healthy tooth structure? Is there any other treatment I could consider for this? I look forward to hearing your reply. Thank you for your time.

I’m Currently Having Braces But I Fear My Gaps Won’t Be Closed In Time For My Wedding. Could Cosmetic Bonding Work For Me?

Thursday, March 20th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Patel,

I have had gaps in between my teeth since childhood but I noticed they have been widening. I am on an internship in Tunisia where I started my braces treatment, it’s been 10 months and I am due to leave in 6 weeks. So far, the 3 mm gap in between my front teeth has closed and so have the little ones on the bottom. However, I now have ‘2 mm’ gaps on each side of my 4 upper and bottom teeth (4 gaps in total). Whilst I would like to be patient with the treatment, in addition to relocating, I will be getting married in February 2014 and would really like to have the gaps closed before then. Would you recommend cosmetic bonding?

My other fear is that I have a long tongue which have been pushing the teeth out; I had a tongue thrust apparatus on for 3 months which has assisted in training the tongue to rest up in my mouth, however I am aware that if we push the teeth too far in, the tongue will still push them back out later on.

Your advice is much appreciated.

I Have Recently Got Over Some Gum Problems. Would Bonding Help Me Fill The Gaps Left Behind?

Monday, February 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I’ve got an aesthetic problem due to periodontics. I’ve had a lot of gum treatment now I think it is starting to get better. I maintain a regular routine with my hygienist every 3 month for a good cleaning. My front teeth look longer than the other ones and there are gaps, my dentist’s advice to me is to put composite bonding resin to fill the gaps and file the longest one, but some dentists say that composite bonding is not really good and can affect the gums and when they file the tooth it can become more sensitive. What do you think?

Hi, I Suffer From Bulimia And Tooth Erosion. Would Cosmetic Bonding Be The Ideal Treatment To Fix My Chipped Teeth?

Friday, February 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi, due to my Bulimia I have some damage to my two front teeth there is a small gap at the bottom due to chipping and the edges have become slightly ragged. I wondered if an application of resin and tooth bonding would fix this? I had perfect teeth but due to my illness I can’t help but feel reminded every time I brush my teeth in the mirror of my eating disorder. My dentist is unaware of this disorder however has noticed my enamel erosion and suggested a course of resin may ‘erase’ the chips. Thanks, your advice would be appreciated at this time.

Is There Any Treatment To Enhance The Look Of Your Teeth If You Have Gum Disease?

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Is there any treatment to enhance the look of your teeth if you have gum disease? My gums are shrinking due to an inherited condition. My teeth look okay but as time goes by it’s starting to look like there are holes between my teeth at the top near the gum. I am 53 and have a huge fear of false dentures.
I have never smoked but I drink socially.
I clean my teeth twice a day
I visit a NHS dentist regularly for scaling and polishing. I would just like to my teeth to look healthy. I hope you can suggest something that could help me. Thank you.

Dear Andrew, I Have Noticed Some Enamel Loss Recently. Is There Any Way To Replace The Enamel I’ve Lost?

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014
Q.

Dear Andrew,

My teeth are in generally good health and I do not suffer from any sort of pain. However over the last few months I have noticed that my two upper right sided incisors have had some enamel loss, which has probably happened over time and therefore they are now shorter than my left sided incisors which looks quite odd. Is there any way to replace, naturally or artificially, the enamel which has been lost from a cosmetic point of view? Thank you, I hope you can help me with my enquiry.

I Have A Small Hole In The Gap Between My Teeth. My Dentist Missed It And It’s Starting To Bother Me. Should I Have Told Him?

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have a small hole located next to my front teeth, in the small gap between the two. It is very minute and when I went for a check up the dentist didn’t notice it at all so I didn’t bring it up, should I have mentioned that this bothers me? I feel I may need a small filling but how large does the hole have to be for this to happen?  Obviously I’d need a white filling with it being at the front of my mouth, any advice would be great. Thank you.

My Maryland Bride Has Fallen Out For The Second Time In Six Months. Surely It Should Last Longer Than This?

Monday, January 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have had a Maryland bridge for 6 months on my front tooth to replace the one at the side of it. It has now fallen out twice so I have put my partial denture back in. This morning the tooth next to it (my front one) broke while I was cleaning my teeth. What am I best off doing as the front one has had a white filling in for a while. Surely a bridge should last longer than this? I can not afford lots of money at the moment as I only work part time. I look forward to your reply. Many thanks.

I Need To Fill A Gap As It Annoys Me, How Effective Is Dental Bonding At Filling Gaps?

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013
Q.

Hi Marcus, Could you possibly tell me how much dental bonding roughly costs for filling in a gap and shaping on the front teeth? I am curious as I have a gap between my front teeth it, isn’t too big but annoys me, also the bottom of my two front teeth are starting to wear away. Is there any real point in getting bonding done or is it just a waste of time and money, what are the benefits of this treatment? Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you.
