My Teeth Are Crowded And I’m Uncomfortable With The Way My Smile Looks. Should I Have Braces?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. 12 years ago I lost an upper tooth when I was young. My other teeth came together to fill the gap but know I can’t smile in front of other people as I don’t feel comfortable with the way it looks. Now one upper tooth is too big compared to the others which are small. I think I need a gap filling through the use of braces. Can you tell me if this would help? I have never been to a dentist so I don’t know what to do really. Please provide me with information about what should I do. Thank you very much.

Would You Recommend Using Tooth Gap Bands For Any Of Your Patients? I Need To Fix The Gap In My Smile.

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. Would you recommend any of your patients to use: Teeth Gap Bands? For closing a gap in the front of someone’s teeth. I seen this website online, and it mentioned a less expensive way to close your gap and I was wondering if you think it would be safe to use.  I’ve read some reviews on their website and I want to try it because I will not be able to afford braces because my insurance doesn’t cover it. I would say my gap is about 2 inches wide and I want to get it closed. Thank you for your time.

Hi There Dr Mark. My Self Esteem Is Low As I Have Gaps In My Smile. How Much Would It Cost To Get Them Fixed?

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Mark,
I’m a 19 year old girl who has a terrible self-esteem because of her teeth. I’m not confident – at all! My front bottom teeth are gapped, which makes it look like I have a missing tooth, and often people think that I’ve lost a tooth. Not only that, but one of my front teeth has tooth discolouration, and I’ve never been confident enough to smile, ever – I don’t think I ever have, to be honest. Anyway, I’m thinking of getting them fixed asap, but I’m wondering about how much – roughly – would it cost me?
Thank you!

I’ve Never Been To The Dentist And I Have A Gap Between Front Teeth. Would I Need Braces Or A Dental Implant For This?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes, I would like your assistance. I have space between my teeth plus two teeth that never moved in line so it looks like I have a huge space there.
I need to know if I would need a dental implant for this or if I can fix my teeth just with braces? Also I have this broken tooth that looks really bad. I am very scared to see a dentist and have never been for a treatment earlier. I need to know how much time I can have all this fixed and how much will cost me? Thank you.

Is There a Quick, Efficient Alternative to Braces for Closing a Gap Between Teeth?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes, I am a 29 year old male and I have a gap between my front upper teeth, which is about 3-4 mm wide. I don’t want to have to wear braces, so is there a quick, efficient solution to fill the gap that doesn’t involve orthodontics? I’d really appreciate your help with this matter. Please inform me of the best solution for my situation, I’m really hoping there’s an effective alternative to braces. I don’t have a lot of money to spend and I’d like a fast treatment so I can get this gap filled as soon as possible. Thank you for considering my question, I look forward to reading your response.

I Have Suffered From Bulimia For Many Years And As A Result This Has Affected My Teeth. Is This Something You Have Ever Had Experience With?

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I need some advice. I suffered with bulimia for many years and as a result this has affected my teeth hugely. I have lost many of my back teeth as a result and the rest are very weak. I also have a large gap in the front of my two teeth which has been a huge dent in my confidence. I am now in a place where I want to get this sorted and I’m aware of the cost of impacts etc. My worry is I have not seen a dentist for years due to shame and embarrassment of my bulimia. Is this something you have ever had experience with? Thanks.

I Am Terrified Of Dentists And I Have Tooth Decay And A Large Gap Between My Front Teeth. Could I Be Sedated Before Treatment Commences?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I am a mental health patient as I have schizo-affective disorder which is a mood disorder which means depression with a few traits of schizophrenia. I am terrified of dentists and I haven’t been to the dentist for quite a while. I have a big gap between my two front teeth and problems with decay. It really bothers me a lot but I am 40 now. Is it possible for me to be put to sleep in a hospital dentistry department and how are they going to fix the gap in my teeth? Thank you.

I Need To Have The Gap Between My Front Teeth Closed. Would Invisalign Clear Aligners Work For This?

Thursday, July 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I am 20 years old and I have a gap in my front teeth. How long would it take to close this and what would the prices come to? I’ve had several appointments with dentists and they all say with time the gap will come together but it never does I feel really conscious because of it and I hate smiling or even talking to people. Working as a promotions seller I need to have a good smile which I definitely don’t because of the gap.
I am undecided on this treatment and mostly on the Invisalign aligners. Can you tell me the difference and which would be better and cost effective?

My Son’s Dentist Told Him He Would Need To Have Teeth Extracted To Have Braces. Is This Normal?

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My son is 14 years old. He had some protrusion in his front upper teeth. Last year I consulted our dentist for correcting the fault and they suggested that in order to do this they would need to remove one front upper tooth on either side and create a gap for the protruding teeth to be corrected. But I worry this could affect his confidence and possibly his eyes. Is this possible? Could you please suggest to me the right method of correcting the teeth which protrude, keeping my son’s age in mind? Thanking you.

A Gap In My Smile Appears To Be Getting Bigger. What Should I Do?

Monday, July 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have a gap in my front tooth and the ones beside it & the one beside my front tooth the gap keeps getting bigger on one side. This has become worse, especially the past few months. I am currently an NHS patient and I already got braces as a child so can’t get them again as I’m not entitled. I’m afraid that if I get a veneer added it will look bad as the tooth will appear bigger. But I can’t smile and I am very self conscious about my teeth. The gap on one side just looks so stupid. Do you know of any treatments that could help me? Thank you.
