How Much Does Composite Bonding Cost?

Monday, June 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I want to know how much it would be to get my teeth done by doing composite bonding. I have what you call baby adult teeth that have really effected me throughout my life. I have also got gaps at the bottom and also the top. I am very self conscious and I rarely smile which I hate as I would love to have lovely pearly whites that I could feel confident with. But the problem is I am 19 and now have to pay for treatment and I do have a job but only an apprenticeship which pays £2.73 an hour and I really want them done and want to know roughly how much it would cost.

Will a Removable Device Help to Close the Gap in My Teeth?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015
Q.

Sir
I am 39 years old. I have a gap between my side teeth, not the front ones, on the lower jaw.The gap is about 2-3mm wide.This gap has appeared gradually with time. Please can you suggest a suitable remedy for me? Do removable appliances work? For how long each day should they be worn? Actually, I have been wearing one for about 2 months and I wore them the whole night but can’t afford to wear them every night. I’ve had no visible results so far.

How Can I Fix a Slight Gap Between My Teeth?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had braces for two and a half years and they have been off now for six years. I wear my retainer every night. But on my front two teeth, if I put my nail between them, there is a very slight gap. This bothers me because it seems they are not as tightly together as they once were. I don’t want the gap to get bigger and I don’t want braces again! But it isn’t that bad. I mean it is very small, but it matters to me. Why would this happen? What can I do to fix it? I know I need a new retainer made but will that fix it? Thank you.

I Have One Chipped Front Tooth And The Other Is Large And Wonky. What’s The Best Option For This?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr Gambroudes. I have two big front teeth with a large gap. One of these is chipped and the other is moving outwards making the gap larger and wonky. Please can you suggest what I can do? What’s the best option for this? What cost is involved? And could I have treatment on the NHS as I’m not working at the moment?

It’s really making me depressed and I’m not leaving my house and my job ended because my confidence is zero. I am now suffering from aggraphobia because I don’t want to leave the house and meet people.

Please help. Thank you.

What Dental Cosmetic Options Are There Other Than Braces To Close A Gap?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I hope you can help me. I was just wondering if there is any other options for me other than braces? Basically the lateral incisor on the right side of my mouth sticks out, and there is only about a 3 mm gap between the teeth behind it. It also seems to push back the central incisor. I want anything other than metal braces or invisalign. I’d like a quick fix option ideally and I don’t mind having teeth removed etc. What are my options?

Kind regards.

I Recently Had Eight Veneers Fitted And I’m Struggling To Make Certain Sounds. Please Advise Me? It Doesn’t Seem To Get Any Better.

Friday, August 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I recently had veneers done on the upper 8 teeth, my old teeth were small and spaced apart. Now I can hardly pronounce anything and especially the
“S” sound. I’ve heard that it gets better with the time but what worries me is that no improvement what so ever had happened since I installed the new veneers. All the practice I’ve been doing seems to have no effect at all. Also the veneers that were installed are bigger and taller than my original teeth. Please advise me doctor? Thanks.

I Have A Hard Time Opening Up My Mouth To Smile As I Have An Overbite. What Can I Do To Fix?

Monday, August 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve always been annoyed by my smile. Sometimes I have hard time opening my mouth to smile because I have two front teeth that stick out in addition to having a gap in between them. What can I do?
My teeth on the lower jaw are also yellowish and some small holes have started appearing. But this doesn’t annoy me as much as having a large gap in my teeth. I am now 20 years old and my parents didn’t care much about that so that’s why they didn’t find me braces. I am really eager to know what doctors recommend for me. I wish to have a beautiful smile and so be confident.

I Have A Small Gap Between My Two Front Teeth. How Much Would This Cost To Amend With Teeth Bonding?

Thursday, June 19th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am a student which means money is tight, therefore I want to know more about costing. I have a rather small gap between my front two teeth around 1mm wide, and the rest of my teeth are ‘perfectly’ aligned and straight therefore I feel no point opting for braces but it is something on my face which I very much dislike. Consequently I was wondering how much roughly this will cost to amend with teeth bonding?
Thank you for your time!

I Don’t Know What Treatment I’m Going To Get For The Gap In My Teeth And It Worries Me. Could You Tell Me?

Thursday, May 15th, 2014
Q.

Okay so, I am really nervous about what they are going to do to me and my teeth! This summer I am supposed to go to the dentists or orthodontists to see what they can do about the gap in my two front teeth. I am very nervous because I don’t know what I’m going to have to get. My gap is not super big but not very small maybe about 3mm? Anyways, I was wondering what they might do for me? I have heard of so many different treatments. The rest of my teeth are straight (as far as I can tell) so I don’t really care about doing anything to the rest of my teeth. Just the appearance of my two front ones. I have heard of braces, bonding, labial frenectamy or some weird thing like that? I don’t know if this matters but I do have a price of skin connecting my lip and my gums. I don’t know if other people have this too so I figured I would mention it just in case. I don’t think it is doing anything it is just sitting there.

My NHS Dentist Refused To Give Me Braces For Free. Is There Any Way I Could Afford This Treatment?

Thursday, May 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have a bit of a gap between my front teeth which is 1 cm long. My two teeth are not straight and they stick out. This is due to me sucking my thumb since childhood. I feel like my gap is getting bigger and it sometimes hurts. I have been to several dentist within NHS however they refuse to give me braces for free. What treatment would you advise for me? I am interested in the 6 month smile treatment. How would I be able to afford this? Thank you, I look forward to your reply.
