Can My Dentist Make Changes to My Veneers Without Telling Me?

Friday, August 14th, 2015
Q.

Hello,
I had my veneers fitted last Thursday and the dentist made changes to both the colour I had decided upon and also the shape etc. without discussing with me (or gaining any consent) prior to them being fitted. He also didn’t show me the veneers before cementing them on.
He now says that he can’t fit me in until next week to discuss my concerns.
Is he allowed to have made changes to my veneers without consulting me about these changes first? I am now left with teeth half a shade darker and he has also taken the liberty of adding a mix to them, to make them natural – I wanted B1 and he said to me (only AFTER he had finished my veneer fitting treatment) that he had made them B2 – I am so disappointed and distressed as he has also shortened them and pushed them back..
Where do I stand – what can be done?
Any help would be gratefully received.

Can I Get a Veneer Free on the NHS?

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015
Q.

I had root canal treatment carried out by my local NHS dentist on my front top
tooth. In time, this discoloured my tooth. I am vary aware of this and it does affect me personally when I come to smile. I cannot afford veneers but was informed by someone who had a veneer done for free on one of her front teeth.
Could I myself have this done free of charge from my dentist? I have not approached my dentist regarding this because I wanted as much information as possible regarding my options before I asked, as they say knowledge is power!

Would Veneers Be An Option for Overlapping Teeth?

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015
Q.

When I was 14 I got taken to an orthodontist after waiting four years to see one. After that they kept cancelling and delaying appointments for a whole year. When I eventually got to speak to the team they told me I shouldn’t get braces and I wouldn’t benefit from them, after five years of waiting. I’m now older and want straight teeth. I wouldn’t say they are that bad but I’m extremely conscious and want them fixed. My two front upper teeth overlap. My right one over laps the left one slightly. My upper jaw is also “too short” as the team at the orthodontist told me. I was wondering if it would be possible to have veneers for my two upper teeth and what the price would be, roughly?

Can I Get Veneers on the NHS Through a Private Dentist?

Monday, April 20th, 2015
Q.

My teeth are in quite a state. They are discoloured, one is chipped, and I was also advised I have too many teeth in my mouth. Stemming from a mental health reason, I have eaten sweets over the years and now I am paying the price. I don’t apply for jobs that require customer contact as I have a great fear that people are looking at my teeth, which makes me so depressed. I also never smile for the same reason. As I am a full time carer I will never have the money for the treatment. I was advised by my last dentist to get veneers.My question is can I get veneers on the NHS done through a private dentist? Thank you.

How Much Should I Have Paid for Veneers?

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015
Q.

Hi, would you please advise? I have been wearing 11 temporary veneers for over 2 months while my porcelain ones are being made. I’ve so far had 6 appointments since requesting them in January. I was asked to pay in full just under £10,000 2 months ago and after I had paid, my final fitting was put back another month. I chose this dental practice due to past awards, now I’m beginning to regret it! Is this the normal practice? So far I’m really not happy!

As a Younger Patient, Can I Have Composite Veneers?

Thursday, April 9th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I am a 16 year old girl and very conscious of my smile. My dentist says I have a peg lateral and I got a filling to make it look better but now it’s stained. Can I have composite veneers? I’m told I’m too young for porcelain veneers. Do I need drilling?Can it be done without drilling, and is there any harm in them? Can I not choose to have porcelain veneers or replace them when I get older? Please help with advice, I would be grateful.

Should I Have to Pay Extra for a New Veneer Wax-Up?

Thursday, April 9th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I had my temporary veneers put on and they are not to want I wanted, or as I discussed in the consultation. I was told I need to pay another £300 for a new wax-up does this seem right? I feel like they just want more money out of me and have not listened to what I wanted at the first 2 appointments. I feel rushed and thought the whole idea of wax-up was to get it right, not pay an extra £300 when they should have listened to me in first place.

Should I Have Internal Bleaching, a Crown or Veneers to Treat Discoloration?

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I had a root canal on my maxillary lateral right incisor about 10 years ago, and it has discoloured really badly. This happened after my second set of braces were removed. Initially bonding masked the grey tone but eventually that’s come off as well. The tooth has also rotated back to its original shape prior to braces. Do you suggest internal bleaching, veneers or crowns? The thought of having a lot of the tooth shaved for a crown scares me a bit, especially in case it breaks.With veneers, would I require one or more to match the surrounding teeth? Thank you.

Which Treatment Will Close the Gaps in my Teeth?

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I’m a 17 year old girl and I have about 5 or 6 gaps on my top teeth as well as on the bottom set. I wanted to know the best treatment to solve them. Some of my teeth on the top set are weirdly shaped so I don’t think braces will solve it. In terms of size I can fit my tongue between all the gaps on the top set. Please help me, I want to become a dental therapist/hygienist and I want to have the best teeth possible. Thank you.

Are Emax Veneers Good Quality Veneers?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Q.

I had CEREC veneers done 2.5 years ago. Last week one broke off (it was my UL4) it came off whilst eating a soft bread roll & had snapped in two (the larger bit I rescued the small top bit I accidentally swallowed) I went back to the dentist who carried out the work and there is a new dentist there who informed me that the tooth in question has little enamel left, it is mainly dentin. I’d like to have the veneer replaced but the dentist can’t guarantee it will bond, and if it comes off I’ll have to pay £550 again for another one. He plans to use an Emax veneer, are these good quality reputable veneers? He did say a crown is another option (at the same cost, however this may result in needing root canal later, again costing money). I’m unsure as to what would be the best option and wonder if there should be any guarantee? My original CEREC came with a 2 year guarantee but I now seem to be getting offered nothing and ultimately fear I could end up spending £500+ on one tooth more regularly than I’d like to.
