Not Eating Caused My Teeth To Break And Now I’m Looking For A Payment Plan To Get Treatment. Which Clinics Have This?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Shaffie, please can you help me as I’m at an all time low. I’ve had to have all my teeth extracted except for 8. I am only 24 years old. My dentist has said it was due to me not eating that had caused my teeth to break. I think dentures look awful and I feel like there’s no way forward. I need to pay via some kind of payment plan for treatment but not sure if clinics offer this? Please help, I can’t enjoy outdoor time with my child as I’m embarrassed. Thanks very much.

I Have Not Been To The Dentist For 7 Years As I Have A Phobia, But I Now Really Want To Know Where I Can Get Affordable Veneers?

Friday, December 13th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, Do you know if there are any dentists in the London area that do affordable crowns or veneers. I hate my teeth and want to get cosmetic dentistry done. Also right in the middle of my bottom teeth I have a black dot. I’m wondering what it is as I have no pain in any of my teeth I have not been to the dentist for about 7 years as I have a phobia. My teeth are not in that bad condition only the left side with two teeth and the back have decay on them but the rest of my teeth are okay. Please help, I really want veneers or crowns on all my teeth. Thank you.

Bad Diet Has Caused Acid To Erode My Teeth, What Is The Cheapest Way To Restore Them?

Monday, December 9th, 2013
Q.

Hi.  I’ve got bad acid erosion on my teeth from living off of diet coke for years! My molars are particularly bad but also my front teeth have small chips. I have hardly any money and was just wondering if you knew of the cheapest possible out come I could have to repair some of this damage. I really do not want metal crowns as am a singer and this will completely knock my confidence. I am extremely upset I have let it get to this point and know there is no way I can pay thousands of pounds. I feel at a complete loss!
If you could let me know what you think may be the treatment I am looking at and if you know of any NHS dentist who would provide tooth coloured crowns on molars.
Thank you very much for your time.

Is There Any Way I Can Get Implants For Free As My Dentures Are Making My Life A Misery?

Friday, December 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Shaffie. My dream is to have real teeth again. Since I was fitted with top dentures my worse nightmare has come true.  I am 49 years old and I’ve had top plastic dentures for 3 years now. I have stopped going out into the public I’ve lost my confidence completely. It’s impossible for me to ever save up whilst I’m on income support. My dream come true is to get my all my top teeth fitted with implants something is telling me to ask a dentist online. Is there any clinic which offer reduced rates to help my dream come true. Thank you.

I Dislike The Shape Of My Teeth And I Would Like A Smile Makeover. Is Their Any Way To Achieve This At An Affordable Price?

Monday, December 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Shaffie. I hope you can help me with some good advice. I am 21 years old and really dislike my teeth, my front tooth seems to be slightly further behind my other front teeth and they are not well shaped.

I don’t want veneers due to the costing – What other options are available please? I would consider cosmetic bonding but again don’t really know the costing. Please could you advise me?

I want a smile makeover without the steep cost and without my teeth being filed down.

Thanks.

I’ve Spent A Lot On Dental Surgery And Now My Veneers Are Beginning To Chip. Why Is This Happening?

Thursday, November 28th, 2013
Q.

After an accident with a horse my teeth were pushed back. I had a hard acrylic mouth guard that the dentist inserted to try to get them to re-root & after a yr I lost it & the teeth started getting sensitive. I had 5 root canals. After talking to many people my father decided we needed to do all 6 front teeth & 6 lower ones so that my teeth weren’t different colours. We decided on dental works because they were the only 1’s that would do all top 6 at once then bottom at once so that they were all from same batch so they would all match. They told us they would do top crowns bottom veneers. A few months the veneers began chipping. I was getting upset & spoke w/a few hygienists where they informed me they should have never put veneers on the bottom. 3 yrs has past, they informed me when I talked w/them about them chipping that I would have to pay out of pocket for them to fix issues as they don’t come w/a warranty. Last month a whole sliver of my top front crown come off. Again they said I would have to pay. At this point I decided I would not pay them & go to a different practice. My appointment is n 3 weeks. Yesterday a whole veneer fell off. I contacted them and started explaining all the issues & that after only 3 years my teeth are falling apart. The dentist that did it was no longer with them. They have agreed to see me and see what we can do. I have a feeling they will only put the veneer back on for free. (It fell off in 1 piece which I still have) I am just wanting feed back on if this is normal and acceptable. Why others have said veneers should not go on the bottom. This has just been awful. We’ve spent $18,000, less than 4 yrs later they are falling apart.

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me? I’m getting my teeth done and I wanted to check that I was paying the right amount for what I’m getting, which is the 8 upper smile for £3695 with teeth whitening of the lower teeth
6 unit bridge for £3900. It’s getting done in Newcastle and I want to make sure before I start any treatment. I haven’t seen any other dentists yet and would like to know if I can get it cheaper than this?
Thank you for your help.

Hi, I’m A Student In University And My Overcrowded Smile Is Getting Me Down. How Can You Help Me?

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Bohara. I’m a 23 years old and I’m also currently a student in university. I have a lot of overcrowding which has caused my teeth to become very crooked, I’ve seen my dentist and he said my teeth are in good condition but to get a great smile I’d need some teeth removed and braces. Would I get them discounted or for free since I’m a student? My oral situation is really depressing me, I never smile in photos and I’m extremely self conscious about my teeth. I hope you can help me with this matter. Thank you.

I Have Teeth Which Need Are Yellow And Rotten At The Bottom. I Need To Know How To Fix This As It’s Making Me Unhappy?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Shaffie. I am 53 years old and my teeth have been getting me down for going on 25 years now. They’re very yellow and some are rotten at the bottom. My dentist says there is nothing I can do about it, so I don’t go no more. I am unable to have a relationship or get a job, because I have to talk with my mouth shut, or turn away from people when I speak. I have tried many products on the market. ie, smile for you, but nothing works. I would love to just be able to relax an speak and smile with people. I am desperately unhappy and would hope that you could advise me where I could go to get treatment for this. I am unemployed so money is very tight. desperately waiting for a reply from you. Thank you.

I Need A Lot Of Cosmetic Work On My Teeth, But There Is No Way I Can Afford £5000. How Can I Find A Way To Get The Treatment?

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’ve just been to my local dentist and he has told me I need a lot of cosmetic work doing on my teeth which is going to cost £5000. I have an NHS exemption and have been told I can’t get any help with the cost. I struggle with the way I look due to my teeth and try not to smile so no one sees them. Can you suggest if I am able to get any help at all as I have very little money but can’t keep going on the way I am. Thanks. I hope you can provide some advice.
