Should My Dentist Attempt To Whiten My Tooth Prior To Fitting My Crown. Is This Something You Could Help Me With?

Thursday, June 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I noticed a reply you made concerning internal whitening and wondered whether you’d be able to offer me some advice please? I’ve had a porcelain fused to metal crown replaced by a porcelain crown on my front tooth. Unfortunately what’s left of my tooth underneath is almost black and shows through the crown and gum itself. I was really disappointed by this as whilst the crown itself is better it’s more blue than the previous one. I’ve read some comments online that perhaps my dentist could have attempted to internally whiten my tooth prior to fitting the crown and/or tried masking the tooth. My question is; can this be done now that the crown has been fitted or would this require my crown to be replaced? I assume that removing my current crown would ruin it and so I would need a whole new one if that was the case? Also, is this something you could help me with at your practice? As I fear that my general dental practice (whilst very good) may lack the expertise to help me on this one.

Any guidance would be hugely appreciated! :)

Thank you.

As A Soldier I Lost Most Of My Tooth In An Explosion. I Have A Business Now And I’d Like To Align My Teeth To Improve My Chances Of Success. What Are My Options?

Monday, June 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Sir. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am a former soldier and whilst on operations in Afghanistan I lost a front tooth in a IED explosion whilst in a vehicle. The damage was minor and limited to a tooth and a broken leg. Now I’ve left I’ve started my own unmanned air vehicle business and would like to get my front teeth aligned and whitened to improve my first impressions when meeting potential clients.
I fully understand you wouldn’t be able to give me much of a solution without a consultation but roughly what are my options? I’m not sure what the MOD dentist put on it to get the shape back but it was some form of putty that’s rock solid. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards.

Which Dental Treatments Can Make My Teeth Stand Out From My Mouth?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have a question for you that I hope you could help me with. Which treatments are there currently available so I can have my lips altered and have my teeth seen more whenever I smile? When I smile my lips cover up both sets of teeth. What kind of costs would I looking at for this type of treatment? It really annoys me and it’s something I’ve had to put up with all my life. I look forward to hearing from you, thank you for your time.

My Teeth Are Discoloured And This Bothers Me. What Are My Best Affordable Options For This?

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
Q.

My teeth are not the best they are not straight but I don’t mind that but they are very discoloured from medication as a child. My dentist says I have very good health teeth but the colour bothers me so much that I very rarely go out and when I do I try wear something that covers my mouth. I haven’t been in a photo in 2 years because I’m to ashamed of what my teeth look like. And the worst thing I do is mumble a lot so that people don’t see my teeth as I’m talking. It has been a few years now that they have been discoloured and it really effects my confidence when going anywhere because I always think that people are looking at my teeth and talking behind my back about it saying look at his teeth if you don’t brush yours they will turn out like that even though I do brush and floss. I work full time in a call centre so that no one can see my teeth. I do have a okay wage but no where near enough to afford thousands of pounds or all new teeth. So is there anything that could be done through the NHS or anything else?

How Do I Get Rid Of The Yellowish Colour On My Teeth? Would My NHS Dentist Whiten Them?

Monday, June 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Hughes. I need your advice and help. I am 18 years old and have stained yellow teeth. My front tooth was a baby tooth and has been extracted  a few months ago and now you can see the tooth in the gum which is taking ages to come down. I was wondering how do I get rid of the yellowish colour on my teeth, I am a NHS patient. Would my dentist be able to whiten them? If so, how much would all of this cost? I hate smiling or even talking it’s just embarrassing. Hope you can help. Thank you for your time.

I Seem To Have Tried Everything To Get Rid Of The Stains On My Teeth. What Can I Do To Get My Smile Whiter?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I really hope you can help me. My teeth are stained and no matter what I seem to do, they never get white and I want a perfectly white smile. What would you advise me to do? I tried various toothpastes with baking soda. I even tried using baking soda by itself, I used super smile, it didn’t work. I brush my teeth 2 times a day and brush them for a minimum of 2 minutes. Are there any treatments that could help me with this problem? Thank you for taking the time to listen to me.

I Am Currently Receiving Enlighten Whitening. Should I Be Get Treatment Prior To Using The Dental Whitening Trays?

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Moore. I am currently receiving the enlighten whitening treatment.
I expected some work before I used the trays, but all my dentist did was show me how much of the product to put in my trays before I fit them at night.
Is this correct?
I have been told I will receive an hours appointment at the end of the 2 week treatment.
Should the teeth not be cleaned properly before hand?
I had a clean 2 weeks before after my check up but the hygienist only scraped my teeth (private clean)
There were some brown marks left on my teeth after the clean, which the dentist said was permanent scarring?(I have scraped some of this off myself)
Many thanks.

I Have An Abscess But Can’t See My Dentist. Should I Take The Antibiotics He Gave Me?

Monday, April 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I went to the dentist yesterday because I thought the tooth whitening I was doing had caused me some irritation. The dentist found a small abscess in the front tooth and dressed it. This was a surprise to me as it was not so painful. He gave me antibiotics but said to try not to take them. Should I take them as it is now very painful and is around the nose area again and worse than before. It is worrying me but the dentist is closed over the weekend. I hope you can advise me. Thank you.

Hi Dr Hughes. Is It Possible To Whiten My Teeth And My Partial Denture So They Match Up?

Thursday, March 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I’d like some advice if that’s okay. I have four false teeth at the bottom on a small denture, but I would really like to have my teeth whitened. What are my options as I’ve done some research and it looks as though they can’t whiten dentures? I would really like to know if anything can be done and how much it would cost? Thank you in advance. I look forward to your reply.
