I’ve Just Had A Fall And Shattered My Front Teeth. Could I Get Them Both Crowned So They Look Nice?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Q.

Dear Andrew. I have just fallen on my face and shattered part of one of my upper front teeth. I went straight to the dentist who put a temporary cap on it and I need to go back in a few days when its settled down to see if she can save it. But my two front teeth look ugly and both seem to be sticking out a bit. Could I get them both crowned so they look nice? She thinks a white filling will do the trick but what’s best cosmetically. I would really appreciate your opinion on this. Many thanks.

I Would Like To Know More About Veneers And The Processes I Would Need To Through When Paying For Treatment?

Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I’m looking to get veneers but I’m not sure what type I need as my teeth are quite badly discoloured. My teeth are not in the greatest shape. If I have veneers placed over my bad teeth will they rot underneath? I’m 20 years old and I don’t smoke but I don’t want veneers that will not last. Also is it possible to get veneers on finance, if so what do I have to pay? Does this involve a deposit plus the monthly cost? What is the process of having veneers fixed? Thank you.

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.

My Dentist Changed My Nice Veneer For An Ugly, Yellow One. Do You Know Why He Changed It?

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me with something that has been bugging me. My dentist removed an attractive front tooth veneer because it had fallen off once. He said he could use a far superior one so I put my trust in him. After 5 weeks of waiting with a temporary veneer he put an ugly yellow, translucent veneer one on which looks awful and is worse than veneer he removed. He also drilled a lot of healthy tooth away prior to doing this. It has a rough surface to it and completely alters my smile. It has knocked confidence. Do you have any idea why he did this? Thank you for taking the time to reply to my enquiry.

After A Gum Infection My Dentist Said My Tooth Has Five More Years Left. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Q.

Dear Mark. I had a root canal on my upper front tooth. This tooth had a plastic material fitted as it was half broken 10 years ago. How long do I have to wait before I can have a porcelain crown fitted on the tooth, as the gum has a visible gap and there is some significant aesthetic damage? Also the dentist left me with a gum infection to deal with and said my tooth has five more years and that I would need an implant. What is the best thing to do as I am a young and attractive and this is getting me down?
Many thanks.

I Want Other Options Than Braces To Fix My Overlapping Teeth. Do I Need Cosmetic Treatment?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. My upper set of teeth are showing too much when I smile and I think they look big too. My lower set of teeth is overlapping. I don’t want to use braces. I also have a little problem when I close my lips because of my teeth. I lack confidence while smiling. One dentist suggested to me that I could cap on my lower 6 so that they look straight. I am a little confused. I am 23 years old. Is cosmetic dentistry a better option for me? Could you tell me how much any potential treatment would cost? Thank you in advance for your reply.

My Young Son Plays Rugby And Is About To Get Braces. What’s The Best Way To Protect His Teeth?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
Q.

My son had one of his front teeth broken with a cricket bat when he was 9 (he has about half the tooth left). He had it filled to rebuild the tooth but has knocked it out or lost the filling 5 times since. He is now 12 and plays rugby. What is the best way to protect his teeth? Are there any mouth guards that have added protection for protecting already damaged teeth? Is there a long term solution that will make it stronger and at what age should that work be completed? He is due to be referred to the orthodontist to correct his ‘fangs’ in the next month.
Many thanks.

My Front Teeth Are Bent And Discoloured And This Makes Me Paranoid. Could You Give Me An Estimate For Veneers?

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have just been on your website and I am really interested. I was looking at having a full set of veneers or new teeth done as when I was younger I had a accident and I’m really not happy with them. My front teeth are bent and discoloured and this makes me really paranoid. I just want a new set of nice teeth and I was just wondering if I could have a estimated price as a guide to look for? If you could get back to me ASAP that would be great. If there’s any other type of treatment you think might help me, it would be great if you could give me some info on that also. Thank you for your time.

How Long Does Veneer Treatment Last And Is It Painful In Any Way?

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I have a question for you. How long do dental veneers last? And do you think it is worth having them? My teeth are quite discoloured and not very straight. Would this be a good method compared to let’s say braces. I was considering getting braces but then I was told about this option. Are the veneers permanent, or do they not last very long? How long will the procedure normally take and is it painful in any way? If you could give me a quote that would be great.

Thank you.
