Will I Have to Pay to Have My Veneer Re-Fitted?

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015
Q.

I have had new veneers fitted after having veneers for 12 years with no problems. However after 2 months, one of my new veneers has fallen off.  I went to my dentist and he put the tooth on again but did advise me it might come off again, and if so the veneer would have to be sent to the lab to be re-etched. The tooth came off the following day and I went back to have it sent to the lab for re-etching. However, I was advised I needed to pay to have the tooth put back on. Do I need to pay again to have it re-fitted?

How Can I Improve the Shade of my Veneers?

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015
Q.

Hello there. I have never been happy with my veneers as they were not the shade I was expecting. They are a yellow shade and I cannot improve them. Is there any solution other than replacing them? my veneers have been in place for around twenty years and are in very good condition other than the shade of them. Is there any product that is available to improve the colour or appearance of them? Thank you.

Can I Have Veneers Placed Over My Implants?

Monday, March 9th, 2015
Q.

Hello. Can I have veneers over my 3 implants? I’m not happy with my smile, I have a very small mouth and a crocked smile. My teeth don’t show much at all when I smile. I have paid £7,000 for implants at my dental practice in York. Hope you can give me some advice on this as I expected the results to be better than this, the implants are my upper 3 front teeth. I also, after 3 years, still get a numb feeling in my nose above the implants? Many thanks.

Can Lumineers be Placed Over Existing Veneers?

Monday, March 2nd, 2015
Q.

Good morning. I currently have six porcelain veneers which were fitted 25 years ago. They need replacing but because my gums have receded considerably, I have a very sensitive mouth and gums. I would like Lumineers without the pain of drilling my current veneers off and preparing the teeth. Can Lumineers be fitted over current veneers or do they have to be removed?

I’m very phobic of dentists and would really like to be given a general anaesthetic for all my dental work, is this possible?

What Treatment Would You Recommend to Rejuvenate Thin Enamel?

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I’ve got quite thin enamel and consequently I have discoloured, relatively-short teeth with gaps. I would preferably like to have as many teeth rejuvenated as recommended (e.g. in a smile, let’s say between 12-14). I was just wondering what treatment you would recommend (bearing in mind my teeth are reasonably slim due to my lack of enamel, but I’m not sure how slim they have to be so that veneering is not an option…they’re not too thin though) and what the cost would be? Thanks!

Can a Gap be Closed Without Loosening the Teeth?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I have a number of questions to ask. Firstly, I have little gaps between my upper teeth. A gap between central incisors, and between the lateral incisor and the central incisor (both the sides).
Can this gap be removed without my teeth becoming loose? Will this treatment be permanent? Secondly, I want to lighten the color tone of my teeth? I have a yellowish tone on my teeth.
Finally, is bleaching a good idea to lighten the color tone of teeth? I asked my local dentist he told me to get them bleached, or does it loosen the teeth attachment?
Thankyou.

What Do I Need to Know About Veneers?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I would like to get veneers. How long do they last? Also, I have read that they file the veneer of your tooth. Would this mean that I would have to replace the veneers? I would like to have the top and bottom set of teeth veneered. How many teeth would this be, and what is an estimate of the cost?

If I was to get dental insurance, would I be able to claim? If so, could you recommend an insurer? Kind regards, I hope you can help me.

How Can I Get the Perfect Celebrity Smile?

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. I’ve always had trouble with my teeth since the age of about six when I got about 13 baby teeth taken out as they were discoloured and rotten due to the amount of fizzy juice I drank. I was wanting to look into getting white veneers as my current teeth are a bit discoloured and one front tooth is broken in two places, and I’ve also had root treatment on that tooth too. I’m basically looking to get the “perfect celebrity” white smile. What would your advice be?
Many thanks.

How Much Would It Cost to Have Veneers Placed On All My Teeth?

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had many problems with my teeth since I fell pregnant with my son. As time has passed, they have become worse. I have cracks in my teeth and I’m starting to get pains in my mouth. As well as having these problems, I’ve become very self-conscious. As a mother of two children, it’s hard to have my children see my teeth when I get them to look after theirs. I wondered how much it would cost to have all of my teeth veneered? Also, if you arrange any payment plans? Thank you.

My Veneers Keep Breaking and Crumbling. Is This Normal?

Friday, November 14th, 2014
Q.

I recently had composite veneers on my top front teeth 6 in total and want them redone by a different dentist in January, as they don’t look right. The colour is completely off and the surface is very uneven. Is this normal? They have also broken off and crumbled twice and I’ve had to go back. The first time I tapped one when I drank from a cup and it literally disintegrated – surely this isn’t normal? They are also not straight and two teeth are now wobbly with gaps, which I didn’t have before, and I have healthy gums.Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer.
