How Can I Find More About Collagen Injections For My Receding Gums?

Friday, November 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. How can I find out more about using collagen for my receding gum line on the bottom front teeth. Where is this procedure offered and how much does it cost? Since having my third child my gum line has gone and worried I’m going to lose most of my teeth if they get wobbly as I can see the roots of my teeth, is this my only option before I end up with no teeth? How many times has this procedure been done in the Uk? Please help me with this.

The Veneers I Had When I Was Younger Are Chipped, How Much Does It Cost To Renew Them?

Friday, October 25th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I would like to discuss my problem. I had 18 veneers done when I was 16, I am now 46 years old and although I have looked after my teeth they are receding, chipped a little, and my bite is certainly not the same. Please could you tell me how much this would cost to renew? And also, how long does the process take? Is their finance available as I don’t have enough cash up front as I had my teeth done on NHS as my teeth were black and unsightly? Is your clinic near the North West? Thank you in advance.

How Much Does It Cost For Micro Abrasion On Two Teeth?

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013
Q.

Hello there Dr Patel,

I have come across two white lines on my two front teeth which have suddenly appeared.

This happened a while ago and after a couple of hours they faded but this time they are fading at all. They aren’t getting any worse but I’m also worried that they are not fading away either.

I always practice good oral hygiene (I have no fillings, brush teeth at least twice a day, floss, mouthwash etc.)

I have read about micro abrasion and think this might be an option for me.

How much roughly would micro abrasion be on my two front teeth? Thanks.

My new crown feels too big for my mouth, can I have it filed back?

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011
Q.

I recently had porcelain to metal crown put on to cover an existing tooth that already had a large cavity. The tooth covered was an upper back tooth. The bite feels normal; however the outside out the crown feels like it protrudes from the rest of the teeth. My dentist said this is normal but I feel self conscious like I have a big tooth. Can the crown be filed or smoothed down so that it is flush with the rest of the teeth? Will filing down the outside of the tooth damage the crown?

Can you help me choose the right brace?

Thursday, September 1st, 2011
Q.

My wife has a 7mm overbit and slightlyl produding two front teeth,she does not have large gaps or crooked teeth, she visited the local Orthodontic practice, paid £150 and was advised to have Ceramic Braces top and bottom for £3000, with two upper extractions(one an old Crown). Invisilgn was ruled out as less effective.She visited her Dentist to have the extraction and was advised they could fit a Brace (Inman Aligner??)top and bottom, no extraction but file the teeth giving an almost as good a result in 4 months, £2400, she did not have extractions as she needed to think.Neither practice provides the treatment the other does and neither mentioned a lingual Brace (ingognito?). We now do not know what to do. She is slightly worried about the conspiciousness of the Ceramic train tracks, particularly on the bottom,but if the Inman aligner is less effective then why not opt for Invisilign, alternatively is an Incognito Lingual brace going to cost more than the £3000 for ceramic train tracks, we may have to pay another £150 just to find out!! Any advice more than welcome.

Should I have to pay for my new veneers to be glued back on again?

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011
Q.

Hi,In July, this year i decide to have two new veneers because one of my original kept coming of, i was told the cost would be £600 and because i am sixty that is a lot of money to me but i thought i would have it done to solve the problem it was done on the national health, after 3 weeks one came off, and i had to go and get it fixed which they did`nt charge me because it was only 3 weeks since i had it done,again today the same veneer came of again and i had to go and get it put back on they wanted to charge me £17 pounds but i refused to pay , when you pay all that money you would`nt expect this to keep happening,can you tell me if there is a reason why this is happening, i don`t bite in anything i have done everything they have said, and i am worried now that if i go on holiday this might happen again.

I am 15 will I be able to have cosmetic work done or will I have to wait?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011
Q.

Hi, I am wondering if you are able to chip/scrap of the bottoms of the tooth so that they are all equal and straight. Also I would like to have my gaps filled and teeth whitened however I’m only a teenager, I’m 15 so I doubt my teeth would have not full developed. Would you only do this on extreme conditions or if I was to request it, also how much would this cost? I have done some research and I have found baking soda does actually help whiten your teeth. Anyway thank you for taking the time to read my dilemma hope you can help thanks.

I look forward to your reply.

Thank you.

Are dentures my only option?

Friday, June 24th, 2011
Q.

Hello Dr Moore
Please can you help me, i have severe bone loss in my gums the teeth that i have left are very mobile, and make it difficult to eat, my dentist said my only option is dentures, this makes me very sad. But if that is the case is there such a thing as realistic dentures? My remaining teeth have all moved and so they look crowded in some places and gaps in other places. I find myself trying not to smile as i am very aware that my teeth do not look very nice, my dentist said that only 2% of the population have this really bad gum condition, i have looked into going abroad for treatment because of the cost, but i think because of my problems it would be wise to get any work done here in the uk. Thank you in advance for your reply. KInd regards

Are dentures the only option for teeth replacement?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

I am 44 years old and have lost all my teeth apart from 4 front teeth at the bottom which the gums are receiding despite brushing my teeth several times a day and using mouth wash.
I lost my teeth due to the negligence of a local dentist who i visited at the age of 25 to have some fillings in my back teeth when the dentist looked in my mouth he told me i would loose all my front upper teeth if he did not give them urgent treatment panic stricken I
agreed he then filed my 6 upper front teeth down to stubs and put temporary caps on,when he fitted the permanant caps they had gaps at the back where I
could put my tounge in,when complained
he told me I had used up my NHS funds and he could do nothing for 6 months.
Ileft his surgery in tears and went straight to another dentist who treated me every week for at least a year replacing the teeth with teeth on a sort of screw (not sure what you call them) these have now all come out.
I built up the courage 4 years ago to go to a dentist who removed most of the
roots apart from my upper 2 front.
They made me a denture but I cannot have anything at the top of my mouth as i continuosley gag.
I cannot afford implants as I am on benifits what can i do to be able to smile again. I have locked myself away for 10years now only going to my parents
and local shops because im so embarressed, I have brought up my two daughters alone and now there 16 nd 19
and out and about i feel so lonley. I would love to get out agin Im still very
pretty, please tell me if there is any way I can get my mouth sorted out.
I also suffer from narcolepsey and caterplexy.

What can I do about my horrible teeth?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Just a message as I am stuck with what to do and where to turn ..
I am 22 years old, and I can safely say that I highly doubt you’ve seen teeth as bad as mine, 97 year old’s probably have better teeth. As a result I have no confidence and avoid talking to people, I rarely smile and it gets me down on a daily basis.

Due to a sever phobia of dentists, I haven’t been to one since I was a young child, as a direct result my teeth have suffered. To add to this, through most of high school I suffered with bulimia. I have lost the majority of my back teeth, and have two very broken molars. I also have a gap between my two front teeth. I’ve never really looked into getting them fixed due to the high costs. I’m not sure where to go or what to do, but I do realise as I am only 22 that my mouth can only get worse, therefore I need to act. I’m just not sure how I’m going to cover the costs, some advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks
