My Teeth Turned Bad And I’m Paranoid About The Way My Fillings Look. Will The NHS Pay Towards Treatment?

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I’m 19 and I really want perfect teeth but I have had problems in the past where my teeth have gone bad and I had to have fillings and now I’m paranoid about the way they look and it really upsets me. I would like to know the cost for permanent dentures all around my whole mouth and I don’t want to be able to move them I just really want a perfect set off teeth. Does the NHS pay for this or help towards payment? Thank you. I’d really like some advice.

I Have A Small Crack On The Tooth Adjacent To My Filling. What Treatment Can I Expect When I Go For My Appointment?

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I hope you can help me. I have previously had a filling to my right upper second molar some years ago. It now seems that there is a small crack on the medial aspect of that filled tooth adjacent to the filling. At the moment it doesn’t cause me any problems, pain or sensitivity, etc and has been like that for a number of months. I am due to have an appointment with my Dentist, but I am wondering which treatment I am likely to expect? Many thanks. I look forward to your reply.

I Don’t Want To Rubbish Teeth. Can You Give Me A Rough Price For A Full Set Of Dental Implants?

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi,

I don’t want to mess about with my rubbish teeth any more, can you please give me a rough price of a full set of screw in teeth? I cannot use a denture, I’ve been down that route before and it just makes me gag. The teeth I have are too spaced apart, most are sensitive and I have fillings that are yellow! My children refer to my teeth as dead mans teeth! If you can give me a rough price so I will then know how to proceed.

Many thanks.

I’ve Had A Composite Filling And Now I Suffer From Sensitivity. Is This Normal?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have had a composite filling along and below the gum line of my bottom back molar as the gum has receded.  Since having had this done I’ve suffered with high sensitivity so now can’t even use mouthwash as it is hyper-sensitive. Is this normal with this type of treatment? I’m worried about brushing it as it’s already fallen out four times and every time I go back, the dentist is having to grind a bit more of my tooth in order for the filling to stick. I’d really like some help with this. Thank you for your time.

I Have A Chipped Tooth And My Amalgam Filling Shows Through. Can I Have The Filling Replaced?

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I would like your help. My main concerns are with two teeth. May I have your view to what is the best solution as:
My bottom tooth is chipped inwards showing the whole amalgam filling? I would like to replace the amalgam filling with a white filling and I would like the chipped tooth mended without the crown in place. How is this possible and how is it mended? Also I would like to ask you what’s the best and strongest filling to mend the top tooth (near the gum). Thank you for your help and advice in advance.

I’ve Started Feeling Some Discomfort After A Deep Cavity Filling. Is It Normal For A Cavity Filling To Take This Long To Heal?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014
Q.

I had a dentist appointment on for a cleaning. I was not experiencing any problems but my dentist said that I had 2 cavities that needed to be filled. I had those filled a week later. About two weeks later, I started feeling some discomfort, so I went back and he said the bite was off so he did some drilling and had me bite down and said it should be better. I am still experiencing the same problem. I went back a week after that and he did not do anything and told me to be patient. Is it normal for a cavity filling to take this long to heal? I hope you can help me with this.

Is There A Cheaper Alternative To An Implant That Wouldn’t Compromise The Health Of My Surrounding Teeth?

Thursday, March 6th, 2014
Q.

I had to have my upper “1st molar” tooth removed due to having a really bad filling done by an NHS dentist where they weakened and killed my tooth causing it to split in half when I was chewing. Since having it removed I haven’t had anything put in to replace the tooth. However I have noticed the lower “1st molar” has started to rise up as it is higher than the other lower level teeth. I am worried if I don’t have something done to replace the upper “1st molar” this will cause me more problems? I wanted to go for the implant however I’m unsure how much it will be and do not think I can afford to do that at present and was wondering if there was an alternative that wouldn’t affect the health of my other surrounding teeth?

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?

My White Fillings Feel Bulky In My Mouth. Can I Have Them Safely Removed?

Monday, March 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi. I recently had two front teeth filled with white filling and I’m not satisfied with the results. It feels bulky in my mouth, and I can feel pressure dragging down on my teeth constantly. There is also pain in my gum, right above the middle between the two teeth.

Can I safely remove them and have my original shape back? If the dentist has only “smoothed” the surface of the chipped tooth, does this mean my original tooth is shorter in length or not? I am very stressed about this, it has hugely impacted my mood and I wish I didn’t do it. If they fall out, do I have to replace them or not and do they stain over time?

Thanks.
