Can a Gap be Closed Without Loosening the Teeth?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I have a number of questions to ask. Firstly, I have little gaps between my upper teeth. A gap between central incisors, and between the lateral incisor and the central incisor (both the sides).
Can this gap be removed without my teeth becoming loose? Will this treatment be permanent? Secondly, I want to lighten the color tone of my teeth? I have a yellowish tone on my teeth.
Finally, is bleaching a good idea to lighten the color tone of teeth? I asked my local dentist he told me to get them bleached, or does it loosen the teeth attachment?
Thankyou.

What is the Best Method for Whitening Teeth, and How Much Does it Cost?

Friday, January 30th, 2015
Q.

Hi,

I have had fairly discoloured teeth ever since my adult teeth came through. I have not been taking the best care of them through my teenage years, and I am desperate for white teeth. It was a medicinal thing that caused the discolour I was told, or it may have been hereditary.

Basically, after all these years I am finally making the decision to pay to get them fixed. They are fairly straight and it is just around 4 teeth that are discoloured, however I would love to have a proper smile and it is affecting my life in a negative way. I’m afraid to smile.

Please could you let me know how much roughly it would cost to fix, and which would be the best way of whitening my teeth?

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

Friday, November 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I am looking to whiten my teeth, how much would that cost? My teeth are quite yellow and they are embarrassing. I don’t ever smile because I don’t want anyone to see them. I’m looking to whiten all my teeth so I am able to show them off to everyone. I have 2 or 3 broken teeth and it hurts when I brush them. I need advice please. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I hope that you’ll be able to answer my question and give me some advice. Thank you.

Hello. I Like The Shape Of My Teeth But Not The Colour. What Would Be The Best Treatment For Making Them Nice And White?

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I like the nice shape of my teeth but I just hate the colour – they are more yellow than white. I was just wondering what would be the best option to make them look nice and white? I’m not looking for whitening treatment – I would be rather interested in any other permanent option like for example veneers – but now sure if this is the best option for a person like me or if there is something else? Thank you.

I Have Black Dots On My Teeth And They Are Also Very Yellow. Would Veneers Solve This Problem?

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello, Dr Gambroudes. I have a very bad problem with my teeth as I have black dots on them and they are very yellow. I hate my teeth I feel so depressed, I can’t even talk to people due to embarrassment. They are also not straight. This affects me when trying to find a job because I’m afraid of talking to people in case they see my teeth. I am 17 years old. Do you think I could get veneers done for free as my parents are also on benefits? I don’t think they could afford to get me veneers. Thank you.

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.

I’ve Had Crohn’s Disease Since The Age Of 18 And My Teeth Are Becoming Weaker. Which Treatments Should I Consider Before My Wedding?

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014
Q.

Dear Sir, I was diagnosed with CD at the age of 18 and prior to this, had fissure sealant treatment and had not had a single filling. My teeth were regularly checked and in good condition, strong and white.

Over the years, my teeth have become visibly more yellow, I have had fillings and the enamel has eroded and exposed the very unsightly dentine on many of my teeth. Some of them have uneven biting edges and are sharp. Until this year, my front teeth remained fairly unaffected, but now I’m getting marks on them, between them and they are getting thinned and more sensitive.

I’m getting married next year and am determined to have a better smile than I currently do. I bit the bullet and made an appointment to visit a local dentist earlier this year, who suggested using bonding to just even out the edges of my teeth, but mentioned this would be to the colour that my teeth are currently, which I’m very unhappy with.

My CD is now stable and I am mainly healthy, but hate the fact that my teeth continue to get worse – possible down to stomach acid? Do you have a suggestion as to what treatments may work to help me finally get the smile I dream of? Thank you in advance for reading and I look forward to receiving your response.

Kindest regards.

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.

Hi There Dr Mark. My Self Esteem Is Low As I Have Gaps In My Smile. How Much Would It Cost To Get Them Fixed?

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Mark,
I’m a 19 year old girl who has a terrible self-esteem because of her teeth. I’m not confident – at all! My front bottom teeth are gapped, which makes it look like I have a missing tooth, and often people think that I’ve lost a tooth. Not only that, but one of my front teeth has tooth discolouration, and I’ve never been confident enough to smile, ever – I don’t think I ever have, to be honest. Anyway, I’m thinking of getting them fixed asap, but I’m wondering about how much – roughly – would it cost me?
Thank you!

I Have Had A Discoloured Bridge For The Past 20 Years. Is There Anyway To Whiten This To Match The Shade Of My Other Teeth?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus, I have a bridge which is over 20 years old and it has never been as white as my natural teeth. I cannot afford to have a new one made at this time. Is there any way in which I could get it whitened as it is making me very depressed as it looks awful. Also, my dentist told me it would be a lot of work to go through to have a new bridge, which scares me. It would be great if there was some way of just whitening it. Please let me know if there a cosmetic procedure I could have without loads of pain. Thank you.
