I Want To Know Which Treatments Will Close My Bucked Teeth Before My Wedding?

Thursday, February 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew,

I’m 26 years old and I have an overbite and my two front teeth are bucked with a gap in the middle. My bottom teeth are perfect!

I’m really self conscious about my teeth to the point of when I’m talking I put my hand over my mouth.

I’m getting to the point now where I really want to be pro-active and do something about it!

I’m due to get married next year and would love for my two front teeth to be perfect for the photos, Can you please recommend any treatments you think I may be suitable for?

Thank you so much for your help.

I Have To Wear My Retainer To Hide The Gap In My Smile – What Are My Options?

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I have been self conscious about my teeth for almost all my life as I have a small gap between my teeth. I did have braces for a year and a bit however my gap never really closed although it did reduce in size. I still think about it and it effects my confidence. I wear my retainer whenever I go out in public as I am so embarrassed and quite aware of how it looks. My teeth are also quite small which I hate. I use my retainer, which gives the illusion of closed straight teeth and a full smile. However it has been about 4 years and I don’t want this problem to hinder me for the rest of my life. What can I do? I’m 17 years old and in need of your advice.

Will My Wisdom Teeth Close The Widening Gap Between My Front Teeth?

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013
Q.

I have a gap between my top front two teeth, over the past years I have noticed that it has increased. I am worried that it may carry on increasing and widen the gap. I do not like it at all and it’s worrying me as I’m noticing myself becoming less confident in social situations which is a big no-no as I love seeing friends. My wisdom teeth has started coming out at the bottom but not the top. Am not sure if my wisdom teeth will decrease the gap or make it worse. However if I wanted to get it treated how much would it cost and which treatment would be best for me.
Thank you.

How Much Is It To Go Private For My Veneers Or Will The NHS Do Them?

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’m 23 and have a big gap between my front two teeth and then two very small teeth either side, I also have stains (from when I was born) on my front teeth. I am very aware of my teeth and how they look. It knocks my confidence and soemtimes I can get quite down about their appearance which obviously impacts on how I act with people and could potentially be limiting me. I went to my NHS dentist but my dentist won’t give me veneers as he says there is nothing medically wrong with my teeth, I don’t have any fillings. How much is it to go private or can I get this treatment on the NHS? Thank you for your help.

How Should I Tackle The Gap Between My Incisors?

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr, I am 34yrs old female.I will describe my most problematic area which is my top row only,please tell me what is the best option for me. I have the widest gap between my two central incisors. I can fit a pen through this gap. My right lateral incisor is missing, it has always been like that I did not do an extraction. My left lateral incisor position is occupied by a small baby tooth,strange but true . Do you think a snap on smile would be right for me and what cost will I be looking at ? Am only asking about the top row. I have never smiled in public or photo,I would like to get married and smile in my wedding photos, can you help please?

What Can I Do About The Gaps In My Teeth?

Friday, April 26th, 2013
Q.

I have all my adult teeth however I haven’t got my lateral incisor teeth. It’s been like this for about 7 years so all I have is spaces between my teeth. I hate my teeth so much that I choose not to smile and even cover my mouth when talking . I can’t afford cosmetics as I’m only 16 and neither can my parents. It’s been suggested that I get braces and then implants to to fill the gaps however I can’t afford this solution. What can I have done so I no longer have gaps between my teeth?I look forward to getting your advice and I am very thankful that you are helping me with my problem. Thanks in advance.

I Have A Gap In My Teeth, What Are My Treatment Options?

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi I was wondering if I could get your expert opinion on a problem that I am currently facing , my front teeth has a lot of gaps this is because in my childhood I had calcium deficiency so my milk teeth fell at irregular intervals and the milk teeth were replaced by new teeth after what seemed to be a long time, my upper section of teeth are a bit protruding, I have already consulted a dentist and he has advised me to go for braces, but to go for that option I have to been told that I will need to extract some teeth which I am not ready to under go, due to the simple fact that it seems like it could be a daunting task and I have never had anything like that done in the past… I would be extremely grateful if you could  please suggest  me some alternative forms of treatment I could undergo which aren’t as petrifying.

Can My Two Front Teeth Be Filled To Remove The Gap?

Monday, April 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello sir, I have a gap of 4mm-5mm between my two upper front teeth. Can I fill that up using bonding? This is something that I have had since childhood and I am 17 now. It has caused a fair few issues for me. I don’t feel fully able to express myself and act as freely as I would like to. Basically, I just want to delete this ‘chapter of gap’ forever. Please help. My teeth are strong enough so I hope bonding could be an option for me. And I think that this gap has increased in comparison to the gap I used to have during childhood. I don’t have any other problem except this gap. The gap caught my attention when one of my friend told that it has increased a little from last 2 years.

The Molars On My Right Side Have Been Extracted Leaving Me With A Gap in my Smile, What Can Be Done?

Friday, March 15th, 2013
Q.

I have had another one of my upper molars removed around last October sometime. I have had all my wisdom teeth removed in the past due to extreme discomfort and agonising pain and all my number 3 molars were removed for braces during orthodontic treatment when I was young. I only have 1 molar on my upper jaw and on my bottom jaw I only have one molar left as well. This is all on my right side of the mouth and it is making me a little worried and distressed. The left side is all okay so it is kind of out of proportion. The main issue being when I smile you can see a small gap. Now this might not seem like such a big problem but it is starting to affect me mentally  I was wondering what the best procedure would be to replace this?
