I Want A Smile Makeover But I’m Confused On Which Specific Treatment To Get. Is There Any Advice You Can Give Me?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I have been wanting a smile makeover for a while now and I am a bit confused on what to get.
I have been told most of my teeth are okay except the four front ones where I have two crowns at the top and I need two veneers at the bottom.
I hate the colour and the size of my teeth, and most are slightly worn down the further back they go.
My ideal would be to have all the teeth removed and replaced with implants or something along those lines. Is this possible even when most of my teeth are supposedly fine? Is there any advice you can give me? Thanks.

I Have MS. This Has Caused Me Swallowing Problems. Do You Know If I Could Get A Discount On A Smile Makeover?

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I wondered if I could get a smile makeover done for free or with a big discount, I have MS and have found due to my swallowing problems and dry mouth it has affected my gums and teeth badly. I am to embarrassed to have a check up done and have realised that my gums are disappearing from my front teeth badly.
Please can you help me or find some help for me as I feel very depressed and stressed about my problem and that is also affecting my illness.

Thank you and I hope you will be able to advise me on what I should do?

I’m Due To Get Married. I Would Like A Smile To Be Proud Of. How Much Does A Smile Makeover Cost?

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark,
I am getting married in September and would like to have a smile I am proud of. I am currently really self-conscious about my teeth, they are crooked due to not being offered a brace as a child and are yellow.
I have a missing tooth at the front of my mouth (upper 10 I believe) which hasn’t fallen out, it just never grew. As well as a slight gap I have fangs. My bottom teeth are crooked from over- crowding.
It’s really getting me down and would like a complete smile makeover. I don’t know what would be best treatment wise or how much I’d realistically be looking to pay? Any information you could provide me with could help. Thanks.

Hi Mark, I’d Like To Know If I Could Have Lumineers On Only The Teeth That Show?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I wonder if you could give me some advice. I am currently thinking about having Lumineers on my top teeth as I feel they are too small, they are also chipped and yellow, plus, I have ground my two front teeth down a little. Could I have 8 done as the rest do not show? Also I feel my top palette is too narrow (I had my fangs removed as a teenager as my dentist said their wasn’t enough room in my mouth), would Lumineers go anyway to correct this? Thank you for your response in advance.

How Can I Have Teeth Like Marilyn Monroe?

Monday, August 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi I am desperate to have veneers but cannot afford porcelain , would composite ones be the next best thing or should i go for the snap on smile ? I really need to get my teeth sorted as I have been asked if I want to be a Marilyn Monroe look a like ! Having my teeth done would make all the difference . What do you charge for composite veneers ? I would need 6 veneers for the top teeth only and the gum line on one tooth trimming . Could you give me an estimate of cost please ? I also need them brightening up a little Thanks, any information you can give me will be extremely helpful. I want to know how much it is all likely to cost before I book a consultation. Thank you again!

What treatments can I expect to have during a smile makeover?

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr Mark Hughes,

I have recently had my two front teeth chipped almost in half. I currently have temporary fillers on them, i have generally nice teeth, but as i am going to want them looking how they did before i am wanting to spend more money and have a total smile makeover.

I have a gap in my teeth which i’d quite like to keep, i would quite like my top teeth to be pulled in, as they protrude slightly and for the bottom teeth to be straightened and aligned. I am not sure whether this will require braces/invisalign/veneers/removals and/or crowns.

I am keen to start the process asap.

i’m 17 and i have multiple gaps in my teeth is there anything you would recommend?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

Hi i’m 17 and i have multiple gaps in my teeth that are right next to each other my teeth are straight and i have a small overbite(which isn’t a problem), there are 11 gaps in my teeth, 5 in the top teeth and 6 in the bottom, the 4 in the top are the ones I am more worried about. the ones in the top range from 1mm to 3.5mm and they are all next to each other and the bottom gaps are smaller except for a 2.5mm gap between the premolar and canine tooth. My orthodontist didn’t recommend braces because he said there was a high chance of gaps coming straight back and i can’t afford to spend a lot of money on something that isn’t right for me. Is there anything you would recommend i do or look into? I’ve heard of so many things like veneers of all different kinds, invisalign, orthordill and other teeth bands, also i know that some of these treatments are expensive is there anyway i could reduce the cost? i know that it isn’t very likely but, I’ve been wanting to do something about my teeth since i was 14 and i knew the gaps weren’t going away. The main reason i want to do this now is because i’m going to university next year and i would really love to have a more confident smile when meeting new people and making new friends, i dont want to labeled the silent or shy girl because I keep my mouth shut because I’m not shy but my teeth hold me back and have been for several years. Any advice will be REALLY appreciated.

How much would lingual six month smile braces cost?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

Hi there Dr Rob

i was wondering if i could get a quick estimate? how much roughly would lingual six month smile braces cost. I’ve found estimates for normal six month smiles in a place in Birmingham for around £1400, im not sure if this would be an accurate quote. i was wondering whether the cost of lingual six month braces normally be considerably higher than this? Ive been online and have seen both the dental suites in leicester as well as one in loughborough are advertising that they do this type of lingual six month smile treatment. i was hoping you would you know of any place in/around birmingham who also offer this service?
