How Long Would It Take To Get A Nice, White, Straight-Toothed-Smile? How Long Would This Take?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi there, Dr Hughes. I have horrible crooked yellow teeth. How much would it cost to get a nice, white, straight-toothed-smile? Do you have finance plans or would the fee have to be paid in one payment? What kind of time scale would something like this take from start to finish? Where is your surgery? I would be more than happy to send some pictures of my teeth if that would help with the quotation! Thank you.

Hi. I Have A Mild Underbite Which I’d Like To Fix. Can This Be Done Without Dental Surgery?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr,

I’m a 34 years old woman.

I have a mild underbite which I’d like to be fix (or improve the look of).

I’d like to know if it is really possible to fix the look of a mild underbite, (narrow upper jaw) without surgery?

I’ve done some research and I found a few places in the US where they do it.
I can’t find any cosmetic dental surgery where they fix the underbite look without surgery.

I’m really looking forward to hearing back from you.

Many thanks.

I Had Braces For An Overbite But My Arch Wasn’t Widened To My Liking. Can This Be Done?

Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had overbite and two teeth removed for braces. My arch wasn’t widened at all really and I have a narrow smile and huge dark spaces at either side. My bite is good now but I’m not happy with the aesthetics.
My orthodontist assured me he that did his best but I feel like I had two teeth removed for nothing as now I’m realising they would of helped achieve a wider smile.
My gums at the very side/back are more visible but my orthodontist told me that contouring isn’t for teeth like mine.
Is there a way of widening my arch?
Thanks.

I Want To Have Braces To Close The Gap In The Middle Of My Smile. Are Braces Safe?

Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I need to have a tooth extracted and cosmetic bonding on my teeth as I’ve got a tooth under my gum. Is this safe to remove, as I am a little scared? I need to have this treatment done because I have a gap in the middle tooth and I want braces to close the gap, I was advised to this before I put braces on my teeth, so please could you advise me on what to do? Is it safe and what can I expect in terms of price when having such an operation.
Thank you.

My Front Incisors Are Too Long And Crooked. Please Suggest Any Fast And Effective Way To Improve This?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I am 23 years old and my front incisors are long and not straight. They seem to be coming out day by day which is making my lips look like they are getting fatter. These teeth are also a bit yellow, and stained from childhood.

I have had braces previously to straighten these teeth but now this problem has returned. There isn’t a gap between those teeth, the problem is basically length. Due to this, I don’t feel confident in showing my teeth when I smile.

Please suggest any fast and effective way to improve this.

My Teeth Are Migrating And I’ve Been Given Conflicting Advice. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have been informed that my teeth will ‘migrate’. I know this is very rare. 2 years ago, I had a mould taken with my dentist and last month, I had another mould taken for comparison. All of my teeth have seemed to move to the side a bit, especially the front, middle section of teeth. Some dentists have advised me to have braces. But some other dentists have advised me not to do so because it may affect the gum. I would like to know how I can solve this problem. It doesn’t cause me any pain, but I’m afraid if I don’t do anything about it, it will become more serious. In a few years time all my teeth might move inward. What can I do? Please advise me on this. Thank you for your time.

I Have Been Told That I Would Need My Jaw Aligned Before Having Fixed Braces? Does This Sound Correct?

Monday, October 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes. I’m 22 years old and an nhs patient. I recently went to see a dentist and he said I needed a fixed brace and 2 teeth out to make room for my 4 teeth at the front which are overcrowded. Years ago, I was told that I couldn’t have braces because my jaw isn’t correct and unless I had my jaw cracked into place. I have chosen not to have my jaw cracked and recently this dentist said that it is possible to have fixed braces. This is confusing. I was also wondering whether I have to pay the nhs for braces or not? Thanks.

My Teeth Have Grown Misaligned. Would It Be Possible For Me To Have Straighter Teeth?

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr. Mark Hughes!

If may I ask, I have some few question for you about teeth and my gums.

First things is, is it possible for me to have straighter teeth as mine have grown inward and some teeth have grown outward? I have this one tooth in front that is not aligned with the others which really bothers me when I smile, laugh or just talk and this tooth really stands out.

Plus the formation of my front teeth are outward. I just want to ask if my teeth could still be fixed?

Hoping for your reply.

Thanks in advance!

I Have Two Missing Front Teeth And I Would Like To Know How Much It Will Cost For A Dental Implant?

Friday, October 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. Good afternoon, I just want to ask you about how much it’ll cost for dental implant? I have two missing teeth at the front. This makes smiling or taking a photograph on social occasions very difficult and I would like to have this fixed. Could braces close this gap or would it have to be a dental implant? And do you know of any special offers for this type of treatment. Thank you for your time in advance.

How Can I Reduce The Gap Between My Front Teeth Without The Use Of Braces?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Gambroudes. How do I reduce the gap between my front teeth. I have actually had my braces put back 1 year, but this gap has re-occurred. Can you suggest to me any ideas to get rid of this gap? I had this gap before and I had braces put in to close it. I don’t want to have braces any more because I had them for almost 2 years and I had a retainer but it still came back again. Is there anything that can be done without putting braces on? The gap is not that much but it is uncomfortable for me. Thank you for your time.
