Can you provide me with advice on applying veneers to a 60 year old lady?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
Q.

I have a 60 year old lady coming to surgery tomorrow wanting veneers UL1 and UR1 (actually – I may have triggered her off!).. anyways.. I would have never ever ever suggested veneers except for the MSc.. she has hypoplastic enamel which is pitted and stained and a prominent crack running longitudinally across the UL1 which is heavily stained. She says her teeth have always looked blackish!
problems:
1. she has a high scalloped gingiva UR1 and a shallow scallop UL1 – Need to do gingival contouring (would I need to trim bone?) -when do i take impressions? at the same appointment as contouring or after 1 week?
2. she has a high smile line :(
3. would whitening help? (pitted enamel).. and if i have to do veneers.. should i first be starting with whitening???

any help would be appreciated!

How can I find a Lumineer Certified dentist?8

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr. Hughes,

I am trying to find a Lumineer Certified dentist but it is not easy to find this information out. I need a Lumineer on my upper front 2nd tooth. I believe that this service is provided by Harley Street but I cant afford the fees there. Therefore, I am trying to browse through Lumineer Certified dentists but can not find such information.
i would really appreciate if you can help me in this regard.
Many thanks,
Best regards.

I am not happy with the veneer treatment I have received, how can this be fixed?

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012
Q.

Hi,  can you please advise me with an issue? Today i had my very first veneer on my front tooth as it was badly stained due to nerve infection and also my second tooth is discoloured too which has not been veneered yet. I am not happy with it, I can still see the original grey stained colour through the veneer and its upsetting. I have already paid, do you think that my dentist will change the veneer?

As i am not happy with the veneer, and I wanted to book appointment with yourselves, how much will the veneer cost? Or Can i have the veneer whitened if that can happen? The dentist did not inform me on which type of veneer she had done. I am happy to send a picture. Thank you for your time.

I’m unhappy with the veneers I received today, what can I do about it?

Monday, July 2nd, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, I went to receive 10 upper porcelain crowns/veneers today – and was very, very disappointed. My dentist has done a very thorough job of preparing my teeth & made umpteen impressions for the lab. And the lab seemed to be very competent. But somehow the final set, when put in my mouth looked like the before picture, whereas the temporary crowns looked like the after! I’ve asked to have changes made but how can this happen, i.e. does the actual fitting in your mouth affect the final result? Really worried I’ve paid £8000 to end up with teeth pretty much the same as I started with. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

My veneers are constantly coming off, why does this happen?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012
Q.

I had two veneers when I was 16 years old because my big teeth either side of my front teeth never came through. These I had until recently with no problems. One side of my lower teeth I do have an over bite so one of the veneers was shorter though I can live with this. 2 months ago I had then redone to improve colour and straighten them slightly but I have been back several times now as they keep coming out. The dentist has had one of the veneers remade and prepared the tooth differently (this is the tooth which has no overbit) but again today it has come out eating a soft chocolate bar. Obviously I am very self conscious of them now and so disappointed. What would you suggest and why would these not be staying in.
Thank you

I’m 16 and I have bad teeth, I can’t afford veneers so what are my options?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012
Q.

Hello dr moore. I am 16 years old and i am really suffering because of my very bad teeth. They are very discoloured despite me trying lots of different tooth whitening treatments, I also have an overbite and individual teeth lay on top of each other or are crooked meaning they are chipped too. There are just soo many problems and now I really hate smiling and meeting new people. I asked my dentist about braces and she said I would have to pay because I am not classed as a severe case as I only want them to “look good”. As you can tell this is really upsetting me because my self esteem is so bad. I can’t afford veneers so what can I do?! Please give me some advice!

I have neglected my teeth because of dental phobia, can veneers fill in the missing teeth?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012
Q.

hello dr moore i would like to start by telling you that i am very scared of going to the dentist and because of this i have neglected my teeth in the past , i have now decided to have my teeth repaired before its too late. i watched a program on tv last night about instant veneers and i am very interested about them because there isnt any drilling or pain involved (which is why i have being missing my dentist appointments in the first place). i have some of my side teeth missing and i was wondering if i could i have instant veneers to fill in the gaps or would i have to go to the dentist to have new teeth screwed in first then have the veneers that go over your teeth thanks for your time.

Do you think that Lumineers would work for me?

Monday, June 18th, 2012
Q.

Hi there, I’m very interested in some dental work. I am self conscious about my smile as my front two teeth are not straight. I have been looking into this for a while but never looked into the cost. How much on average would it be for my front four teeth to be worked on. I have recently been looking at Lumineers I would like to know your recommendation on these and the price of both vaneers and Lumineers. I would like a natural set to have. Smile I can be proud of
