What Would You Estimate For Four Teeth To Be Straightened And Whitened?

Friday, March 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark,

I have straight teeth, with what I think is A1 shading. I however, am not fully satisfied.

My dentist has always said my teeth are fine and straight, but I think my bottom four front teeth are slightly off. I’d also like my teeth to be whiter than they are. Would you happen to know an estimate for these four teeth to be straightened without braces and for all of my teeth to be whitened?

Thank you for your time,

Kind Regards.

I Had An Accident and A Tooth Had Been Root Filled. Now It’s Discoloured Is It Best To Have Internal Bleaching Or A Veneer?

Thursday, March 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I hope you can help me. Following an accident I had, my front tooth had to be root filled and this is now slightly discoloured. Would this type of procedure work? My dentist is currently trying to bleach the inside as bleaching outside did not work. He is reluctant to put in a post bridge. Would an ordinary veneer be better or would that make the tooth protrude against the other front tooth. I fell on my front teeth which dislodged 7 of them. Thank you.

Where Is The Best Way To Buy Gel Refills For Teeth Whitening. Can The Internet Sites Be Trusted?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I hope you can help. Please can you recommend where is the best place to buy gel refills for teeth whitening. I had this done at my old dentist and I still have the trays but I have moved home now and my old dentist is not responding. I would like to purchase the refills but there seems so much choice and I don’t want to buy the wrong thing. Also, Can the internet sites really be trusted?

Many thanks, I look forward to hearing your reply.

I Had A Root Canal 3 Years And Now My Tooth Has Gone Grey. Would Bleaching Work For Me?

Monday, March 10th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore,
I had a root canal done 3 three years ago and then my tooth became orange/grey.
I would like to know if internal bleaching is a good option as my tooth has not discoloured that much and I am not interested in a crown so far. In regards to veneers I was told that I have to have it done on my 2 front teeth and I do not like this option as one of these teeth is totally healthy.
I am looking to find a dentist that could do it. Could you also tell me how much it would cost?

I hope to hear from you.

I Wonder If You Can Help Me. My Teeth Are Discoloured But I’m Not Sure My Fillings Will Whiten. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I wonder if you can help me. I feel my teeth are quite discoloured I would just get them whitened but many years ago I chipped both of my front teeth whilst on holiday. This was rebuilt by a dentist that morning. They were fine but I feel the bottom of my 2 front teeth are quite thin and don’t look right. Basically as the bottom of these teeth are not my own I’m not sure if they will whiten? Also one of my K9 teeth has a filling on the front and the whole tooth is very discoloured. I’m at a loss as to what my best options are and to be honest the very top of my budget would be £1000, could you advise me please?

Is There Any Whitening Product On The Market That Can Brighten Up My Old Crowns?

Monday, March 3rd, 2014
Q.

I have heard that there are whiteners for capped teeth. My caps are pretty old, about 10 years. I have seen a periodontist and asked him if I should have the caps replaced and he said no. My caps are pretty yellow and I would like to have them lightened. Is there a way to do this? I really can’t afford to have the caps replaced, maybe a few, but it bothers me to smile, but I do because that is in my nature and I like to smile. I just wish I had whiter teeth. I know a lot of women and men whiten there natural teeth but what about us who have a mouth full of crowns? Is there no whitener in the market for crowns?

What Treatment Do Celebrities Use To Get Such White Smiles?

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, it’s probably a really common question but how do celebrities achieve such white smiles? I’ve had a laser treatment on my teeth before which seems to be the only whitening treatment available and I didn’t really see much difference? I would rather get teeth whiter than my natural teeth than restore their natural whiteness, but I assume you’d have to have a full set of veneers or something more drastic to achieve this? Hopefully you can give me some good ideas on how to achieve this. Thanks.

My Teeth Are Black At The Back And I Haven’t Seen A Dentist For Nearly 20 Years. Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Get Them Back To White?

Monday, February 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I haven’t seen a dentist for nearly 20 years, my teeth are very discoloured and the bottom ones are black at the back. I’ve recently given up smoking but like a coffee and red wine. I don’t suffer from any toothache, although my teeth are very sensitive. Is there anything that can be done to get my teeth back to white or am I looking at having them removed and having dentures? I am 41 years old and this is really depressing me now, I would do whatever it takes to get a nice smile back and regain some confidence.

My Teeth Have Become Yellow From Antibiotic Staining. What Would Be The Best Form Of Whitening Treatment For This?

Friday, January 31st, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I’m 47 and have always had natural cream toned teeth. But, I’m now feeling quite embarrassed whenever I smile as they are now rather yellow. My dentist and my son’s orthodontist technician think that I may have antibiotic staining. (I did have various antibiotics in my teens for acne treatment) and that bleaching by the orthodontist may not have any effect or leave me with lines of discolouration.
Would laser whitening be more effective? Thank you.

My Teeth Have Gone Black After A Root Canal Making My Veneers Discoloured. Is This A Common Problem And How Can It Be Resolved?

Monday, January 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi. Just over 2 years ago I had a smile makeover at my local dentist. This involved teeth whitening first and then 6 upper veneers and 3 lower. I had to have root canal on 3 or 4 of the teeth because my dentist advised me they had to file the original tooth close to the nerve.
After 2 years I have noticed 2 have started to go black. In my opinion it’s the tooth behind that is black and it is starting to show through the veneers making the veneer seem darker than the others.
I have been to see my dentist and she advises nothing is wrong and the only thing she could do if I was still worried would be to drill the veneers off and smear white cement over the original tooth and replace with a new veneer at my expense of course!
Is this a common problem and how can it be resolved?
Do teeth tend to go black once root canal has occurred?
I can send a picture if that will help explain my issues. Thanks.
