Q.
Hi, I am a 24 year old student nurse and i am in utter despair about my smile. I have three broken teeth, whihc keep on crumbling. This occured after having a mild eating disorder a few years ago. I also have teeth which stick out, which are large in appearance and i have a front gap. I am a smily person and am desperate to be able to smile properly without feeling embarressed. I am also concerned as i am aware that dental treatment is expensive..what financial help do you offer. Thankyou. Kind regards, L

Have had lots of fillings and teeth straightening but still not happy would you recommend Lumineers ?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
I have had alot of fillings over the years in my molars and I hate the way they look. I also had lower braces when I was younger which straightened my lower teeth but I am still unhappy with my upper teeth, they arent really crooked but I am unhappy with them. What would you recomend? My friend is a dentist and has mentioned lumineers? How much do they cost on average? M.N.

I was told i needed braces as a child, I have crooked teeth I want a straight row of pearly whites, what are my options and how much will it cost ?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
As a child I was told I would need braces, but for this I needed to have several teeth removed as I have too many teeth. This frightened me when I was young and I refused. Over the years I have always been concious about my smile and I try not to smile as much as possible so that I can hide my teeth. Now that I am 21 I feel that this behaviour is foolish and yet I still wont smile! My teeth overlap and my canines are so prominant that I look like a vampire. I want to have a perfectly straight row of pearly whites, but I’m unsure of what treatments I would need. I dont want to have adult braces that have to be in for years. I would like to get the whole thing over and done with asap so I can actually smile with pride to all my friends and family. What can I do to acheive this and how much will it cost me? I would like to do this as close to home as possible.
