Could I Have a Veneer Put in to Replace a Missing Tooth?

Monday, September 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hello and good morning, Dr Hughes. I have a missing tooth next to my front teeth on the left side of my mouth, but on the right side there is still a tooth present. The left side bothers me because the tooth is missing and hasn’t come through, so the tooth next to it has moved over to fill the gap. Would it be possible for me to have a veneer put in place where the missing tooth should be so that both sides are the same, as it really bothers me when I smile because it looks uneven. It is not that obvious to other people, but I myself am really aware of it and it prevents me from smiling. Thank you.

Would New Veneers Solve the Problem of Recessed Gums?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

I have severely recessed gums that now expose the substrate below the veneers to my upper jaw.
My lower jaw has five dental implants and a bridge, so the question of receding gums does not apply.
Would new veneers solve the problem, or would implants be the better solution? Giving consideration to the inevitable question of cost and longevity of the success after the procedure, I am also a type 2 diabetic and suffer from Coeliac disease.
Are there any other suggestions you could make to improve the appearance of my smile? With the prolonged receding of my gums I have inevitably lost a number of teeth from my upper jaw as well and although the denture I have conceals some of the problem, they do highlight the areas where the substrate is most visible.

Good Day Dr Hughes. Can I Have Veneers Fitted When My Two Front Teeth Are Crossed Over?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Q.

Good day Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me. Can I have dental veneers fitted when my two front teeth are slightly crossed over? I have always been self conscious about my teeth and veneer treatment seems to be the best option for me so far. I’m just unsure whether this would work as a friend told me that veneers are more commonly used for gaps. Also am I able to pay on finance when getting veneers? Am I able to get veneers at the age of 18 years old?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

I Recently Had An NHS Veneer Fitted. I Am Most Upset At The Final Appearance As It Looks Bulky. What Are My Options Now?

Monday, September 1st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My question is about a dental veneer I had fitted by a NHS dentist 4 days ago, I had this done to replace an old veneer that had a fracture. I am most upset by the final appearance as it looks bulky and sticks out against my other tooth and the fitting feels wrong, I can feel air from the top of veneer, it’s hard to describe but it’s similar to the feeling of when you floss and you can tell you’ve flossed because you can blow air through the small gaps between your teeth. What are my options now as I am concerned I’m going to be stuck with what I’ve got? Many thanks for your help.

I Recently Had Eight Veneers Fitted And I’m Struggling To Make Certain Sounds. Please Advise Me? It Doesn’t Seem To Get Any Better.

Friday, August 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I recently had veneers done on the upper 8 teeth, my old teeth were small and spaced apart. Now I can hardly pronounce anything and especially the
“S” sound. I’ve heard that it gets better with the time but what worries me is that no improvement what so ever had happened since I installed the new veneers. All the practice I’ve been doing seems to have no effect at all. Also the veneers that were installed are bigger and taller than my original teeth. Please advise me doctor? Thanks.

I Have Had Braces In The Past And My Bottom Jaw Has Come Forward. Will This Continue To Grow Out?

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have a problem that I hope you can help me with. I have a reverse overjet of just over 2mm and I am 20 years of age. I want to solve this but I don’t want to get braces again. What do I do? I had braces before and 2 teeth were removed from my upper row and afterwards my teeth were left straight on top rather than in front so over time my bottom jaw has grown and come over. Will this continue to grow too? Are there any other solutions to this problem? Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.

I Have A Calcium Deficiency. My Veneer Fell Off And I Need It Replaced. Could A Dental Trainee Do This?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi there. I am a model and currently receiving more job offers than ever, however my teeth will lose me work. Only yesterday I lost a veneer. I was born with calcium deficiency and my teeth have suffered greatly. I discovered a few years ago that I have a pituitary tumour, it has probably been there since I was a child and hence why I’ve discovered many problems that I’ve only found throughout my adulthood. I was quoted a few years ago from a dentist from York, who said they would give me a Hollywood smile for £2800, but even that I can’t afford. Here in the U.K it would cost around £14000 so my question is: Can I have work done by being a study for trainees? I have veneers, bridges, crowns and I’ve had major work done which were fabulous but that was over 18 years ago. Can someone help? I’m willing to travel….. Regards.

My Teeth Are Too Small To See Whenever I Smile. Can Dental Veneers Make Them Longer?

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I need some information. When I smile you cannot see my top set of teeth, they are too small and it really annoys me the way they look. I just want a nice, normal smile. Can veneers be made a little longer to show a set of nice white teeth smile or would false teeth be my only option? If dental implants are my only choice, could you tell me how much they will set me back? I hope you can help me with this. Thank you for listening, I look forward to your reply.

Hey There. My Smile Doesn’t Match Up After Having Braces. I Was Wondering If This Could Be Fixed?

Monday, August 18th, 2014
Q.

Hey there.

When I was younger, perhaps around 14, (I’m 26 now) I had a tooth taken out on the nhs that was growing the wrong way inside my gum and pushing all the other teeth out of place.
I’ve had braces to sort an under-bite also and I’ve tried to straighten all the rest. Subsequently I feel very little was done. My bite is okay but my jaw is all out of line. In the middle of my bottom jaw is a tooth. So the line that should match up with my top teeth doesn’t match. The fang tooth on my top left side isn’t there and makes my face so different looking to the other side of my face. I feel so ugly with it all over the place. I was wondering if this sounds like it is fixable? I’d give anything to have lovely teeth and not want to hide them.

Many thanks.

I Have A Maternity Exemption Card. Will I Be Able To Get Dental Crowns Fitted For Free?

Thursday, August 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My 4 front teeth are becoming thin as my enamel is wearing away which makes me insecure but also makes my teeth really sensitive. I have a maternity exemption card. If I ask my dentist to fit the crowns will I get this for free or do they have the final decision as to whether I need them or not? Or also are dental crowns the best solution or would veneers help me? Would love some advice so I can go to the dentist with a bit of information.

Thanks.
