How long after using the whitening treatment should I avoid ingesting food/drink with staining potential?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
Q.
I am currently undertaking home whitening with bleach supplied by the denist in tailor made dental trays. 1 hour a day. How long after treatment should I avoid ingesting food/drink with staining potential. Any further during and aftercare advice would be greatly appreciated. I have post operative hypthyroidism and hypoparathyroidisim for which I am on total replacement thyroxin and Sandocal (effervescent calcium) and one alpha to maintain my calcium levels. I am an ex nurse and just thought I’d run this by you though I don’t think my condition would have an adverse or corrosive effect when teeth whitening as I can’t maintain serum calcium levels due to no parathyroid hormone. So can’t extract calcium from bone when needed have to absorp for GI tract to maintain levels. Love my teeth and as just enhancing them as hit 40 want to be sure I am not damaging them. Any advice appreciated. Know I am rare but thought I’d just ask incase you’d encountered anyone like me (a consequence of surgical error). Thanks,

Q.
My girlfriend wants to have her teeth whitened and is look at a place in a shopping centre. They are not dentists and only offer a whitening service. I want her to use a dentist! Is it legal for them to do this, should they have a qualification/insurance she should ask to see?,

I want my teeth to look white, what options are available to me?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
Q.
Hi, I am 36 yrs old and have never been able to smile properly since I was 5! because of very discoloured teeth.The reason behind this was due to a reaction to penicillin which the GP gave me when I was 5 yrs old. I have always dreamed of a nice smile. Spoke to my dentist a number of times when I was younger and basically he said there was nothing he could and white teeth would not match my complexion??? I just gave up hope. Since the popularity of cosmetic dentistry I have enquired into getting some form of treatment but the prices are way too high. I am a single parent of 3 with a little part time job – wot are the options available to me?,

Does teeth whitening work on a bridge or a crown?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
Q.
Does teeth whitening work on a bridge or a crown that may be a part of your main set of teeth?. If not, I imagine that you would get a very patchy end result.,

I have had a lot of trouble with matching my teeth shade to my veneers. Is it safe to have my veneers replaced for a fourth time?

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010
Q.
Hi Dr Solanki, I have had 3 sets of veneers in total. I decided to get veneers 15 years ago because I had stains on my top middle two teeth and after feeling very self conscious throughout my teens, I decided to get the top 6 done to make sure they were all the same colour. I got the first set of veneers replaced after 14 years because the colour wasn’t as bright and I wanted them whiter. I went to a new dentist who did the veneers in a shade that I hated. He didn’t even ask me what colour I wanted, he just told me the shade number (A2). (The first dentist put a colour chart next to my mouth and asked me what shade I would like and I expected this new dentist to do the same). I then lived with the horrible A2 for two years before going back to bleach the bottom teeth and asking him to redo the top to then match the bottom. After I get my teeth filed down again (for the 3rd set of veneers) I ask him what shade he has ordered for me, he shows me A1 and tells me that it will be really white. I then wait for 3 weeks and finally go get the new veneers on and now the bottom teeth are lighter than the top! I’m in despair!! I pointed out that they don’t match the bottom and he tells me he doesn’t have a shade lighter than A1. I’ve looked on the internet and know that there are in fact shades a lot lighter than that! So my question to you is: I’ve now had my teeth veneered 3 times – is it ‘safe’ to have them done again? How many times can you do this to your teeth? Thanks very much in advance!,

I cannot get braces on the NHS anymore, but I’ve been looking at six month smiles. Is this my best option?

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010
Q.
Hi there, i am a 17 year old looking into getting my teeth straightened something that should have been done when i was about 14 but i was never taken back to a dentist then. I recently went back and registered at a dentist where i was told my teeth were very healthy but I cannot get braces on the NHS anymore. Could the reason be because it’s purely cosmetic? I am looking into six month smiles and i have recently been told i have TMJ i am wondering if undergoing this treat ment will agrivate it? Thirdly (sorry) i have naturally discoloured teeth would a whitening help this or would something like veneers be my only option? Thanks :),

Is it possible to get all my teeth whitened, even though one of my teeth is turning black?

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010
Q.
Hi, My teeth need whitened, all are slighly discoloured however when I was younger I cracked the front left tooth and required a veneer, this tooth is beginning to darken dramaically and I think it will turn black soon. Is it possible to get all my teeth whitened and what would you suggest? (Bleaching, laser treatment or any other affordable procedures) Thank you.,
