My Teeth Move Even Though I Wear My Retainer, Help?

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor! So, my problem is that I had fixed braces 7 years ago, then my dentist removed them after 1 year and from that time to now I am using a retainer .. but still if I don’t use it for only an hour my teeth move back to there original position .. I am really tired of it now :/ M dentist is suggesting that I go and get a bridge done on my front 6 teeth .. Now firstly can you tell me what that is? As I haven’t got a clue what a bridge is. Also I would like to know what you think that I should do about this? Like your general opinion because I am really frustrated now. Pleeeeeaseee helpppp ,  I have to tell you as well that my retainer breaks off so easily, even though I take so much care of it .. :/ Nightmare

I Am Unhappy With My New Crown, Can It Be Fixed?

Monday, April 29th, 2013
Q.

I had a crown on one of my front teeth 15 days back. My tooth had got discolored & it was recommended that I get a crown. I went to my usual family doc who had done my braces earlier. But I’m very unhappy with the crown. she ground my tooth n then gave me a first crown which was a complete disaster. I asked her to replace it at any cost. She did that and it was better than the previous one but I’m not completely happy. it is protruding a bit near the fit at gums & i feel it is a little bigger & bit rounder than my adjacent tooth. The crown has a metal inside. she said that my gums would grow over the joints near the crown & it would look normal but i feel very awkward to smile :( please suggest what to do. I have spoken to her about this & she says this is how one tooth crown would look & everybody who gets one tooth front cap will look the same. Please help. Thanks in advance!

What Can I Do If My Tooth Won’t Stay In Place?

Friday, April 26th, 2013
Q.

Hi

I paid for the Inman aligned through a local private dentist which pushed my top front teeth into place. My top tooth has move out of place again and I don’t know what to do about it. I am considering a veneer instead perhaps. Would this be appropriate? I went through the long course of wearing the aligned so I don’t want to go through this again but the one tooth appears to be stubborn and wont stay in place… This seems like the treatment was a waste now which is frustrating. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Will My Teeth Shift After The Problem I Had With My Braces?

Thursday, April 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello,
I had braces 7 years ago.
And after my braces, my dentist placed a permanent wire behind by top 4 incisors.
It snapped from the side, and when i went to see a different dentist, he removed the piece that was sticking out , and now the wire is only behind 3 incisors on the right. It worries me quite a bit because you know, it wasn’t my original dentist so maybe they have missed something crucial in understanding my south’s specific orthodontic needs and nuances. So basically, I am wondering if they’ve missed something, because the wire isn’t centered anymore, will it make my teeth shift?

Thank you in advance.

How Much Would Composite Veneers For My Front Teeth Cost?

Friday, April 12th, 2013
Q.

I have very thin teeth, they are health. I have no fillings whatsoever. However as they are very thin it makes me feel paranoid. They are starting to look almost cracked along the bottom and I want something that will almost protect them while increasing my confidence in my smile. It’s important to me to look good and be able to smile in front of my friends and family but this is knocking me, I’m such a happy smiley person normally, but this is changing me. What I am looking to get done, would be composite veneers on my top front 6 teeth. How much would this cost roughly and would I be able to pay monthly or would it need paid all at once?
Many thanks.

My Crowned Tooth Has A Broken Post And Infection, Are The Costs I Have Been Quoted Accurate?

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013
Q.

I have a crown with a broken post and possible infection (seen on xray).The tooth is the front left one.
The crown is also loose and has to come out.
My dentist gave me two option: To remove the tooth or two keep it (not reccomended by him, couse of the infection and possibility he may not be able to drill the remaining post out and Infection may not be treated succsesfully.
If I remove my tooth, I have option of 1.-implant (only done privately and too expensive (£2000)
2.dentures for tooth-i dont like it because I can take them in and out
3.bridge-done on nhs with one wing and possibility it may coume out, or done privetly with two wings, over my other front tooth, but it may couse pain, and again it cost more (£1000).
What would you reccomend?
I have to mention that I was planing to do veneer on my other right front tooth -its crooked-anyway so these two look the same, and veneer on NHS cost me £300.

Many thanks

How Can I Properly Whiten My Stained Composite Veneers?

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013
Q.

I have composite veneers over my front four teeth and I am looking to have them whitened (they have stained a little over the time I have had them on)
Are there any forms of whitening/ ingredients I should be staying clear of?
I wanted to complete a course of in-surgery lazer whitening but since having it done before I had my veneers put on, it has been made illegal.
Any advice on what would be the best way to bring my veneers/ teeth to their original colour?

Thank you

My Teeth Are Very Sensitive And Discoloured, Is Whitening Toothpaste My Best Bet?

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013
Q.

I am 62 years old and have lost the enamel off my teeth; I have been informed this is due to eating too much fruit.
I am very embarrassed to talk let alone smile, due to the dark colour of my teeth.
I am due to attend a very important wedding soon and I am so worried about my teeth that I am now considering having them whitened.
I do have sensitive teeth and use Sensodyne toothpaste but I believe the whitening process increases sensitivity and am a little concerned about that.
I would truly appreciate your comments please.

Can My Teeth Be Quickly Straightened Without Braces?

Thursday, March 28th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor

I would like to ask you a question, basically the situation is this. I have got front tooth which is little band and a few millimetres out. Overall though it is healthy tooth. However the problem is that it is quite visible thought when I open my mouth because it is right upfront and  I would like to ask you if it possible to straight it out without any braces and something can be done immediately. It is knocking my confidence somewhat and I’m just getting a bit sick of it really. Can you also let me know approximately the cost of the procedure? and the length of the procedure

Thank you.
