What are the best veneers lumineers, cerec, J.Kim ?

Sunday, February 10th, 2008
Q.
Having just had a quote from my dentist in Liverpool I felt more like I was being sold double glazing the way in which the price changed. I already have a now dated bridge in place of 3 teeth + 3 crowns + am looking to have veneers over my ten top teeth. I think I also need gum reshaping + obviously whitening of bottom teeth. My dentist recommended J. Kim veneers and said they were by far the best, but going on various websites everyone says differently some saying lumineers, cerec etc. Some even say they will do the whole process in one day, is this advisable and what veneers do you recommend? I would prefer to travel a bit to find someone who I could trust, do you do free consultations in Birmingham or if not is there someone who you could recommend. I do hope you can help.

Would botox be useful for excess wrinkled pouch of skin on my stomach?

Friday, February 1st, 2008
Q.
Since having a child five years ago, I have been left with a very wrinkled pouch of skin on my stomach. Exercise makes no difference and I do not want extensive cosmetic surgery. Would botox be effective on this type of problem?

I need gum reshaping and have been quoted £1000 is this expensive ?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
I have been told I need gum reshaping on 4 teeth and some bone removed at the same time from above one of the teeth,in preparation for 4 veneers (to close a central gap). I have been quoted £1000 for the gum work alone but feel this is quite expensive. I like the dentist and periodontist but am now worried that they are charging too much because they think I can afford it! Is there some kind of price guide for periodontal work? What do you think?

My dentist says that Lumineers will not work beacuse my teeth are grey and I will need normal porcelain veneers

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
I told my dentist I was interested in Lumineers based on research I had done. He said that Lumineers would not work on my teeth because they were a bit grey. He prefers using a local lab that would make porcelain veneers that would require removing a significant amount of tooth matter. My question is does the Lumineer product cover grey? Should I get a second opinion? K
