I Would Like To Know If I Am A Suitable Candidate For Invisible Aligners Or Other Clear Aligner Treatment?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am wondering if I would be a suitable candidate for Invisible aligners or other clear aligner treatment? I have a moderate over-bite, with the top middle two teeth jutting out slightly further than the next two teeth. There is some over-crowding in the top too, with the teeth next to the top middle ones sitting slightly behind them. At the moment I have temporary veneers on these two teeth to bring them into line (the dentist I was seeing didn’t prep the teeth and put permanent veneers on as I was still considering orthodontic work). However, I don’t like the look of the veneers compared to my own teeth. I would be happy with veneers if they looked more like my own teeth, which are slightly transparent and have texture. Whereas the veneers look a bit dead to me, plastic looking. I had the bottom teeth straightened in my 20s and still have the glued in retainer. Now that I’m older I don’t want to have visible regular braces. I’d be grateful for your advice.

Kind regards.

I Want To Know If I Can Have Braces Through Two Separate Orthodontists In Different Parts Of The World?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr. Riten, I am relocating to the UK from India in a couple of weeks. I am 25 years old and I need your advice on cosmetic dentistry.

My upper front teeth lie ahead of the lower front teeth. I wanted to get braces but heard the medical expenses in London are very steep.

So, I wanted your advice:
1. If I get the braces process started in India, will dentists in London take up the case and treat me?

2. What is the cost of getting braces in UK?

3. Anything else that you can suggest.

If needed, could I also send across my full mouth x-ray.

I look forward to your response.

Thanks.

Is It Possible To Pay For Invisalign Treatment Over Instalments? My Smile Is Overcrowded And Crooked.

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have pretty bad crooked teeth and I feel invisalign is a good choice to sort them out. The cost is a bit dear for me. Is it possible to pay in instalments over a period of time? Where could I go to arrange an appointment to get invisalign and how much is it for an appointment? Would I have to pay just for a first time check up? My teeth are over crowded and crooked, it’s not so much the bottom teeth it’s the top, the front 6 teeth and the front 2 are leaning towards the left. Also the 2 small teeth on each side aren’t straight and one is fully turned at a 90 degree angle. The 2 beside them are towards the top of my gums like fangs. Please help me on this. I dislike my teeth and avoid smiling due to how they look and need expert opinions and guidance.

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?

10 Years Ago I Had A Full Brace When I Was Younger But As Soon As I Had Them Removed They Started Moving. What Are My Options?

Friday, July 18th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark,

I am looking to get my teeth fixed, I had a full brace when I was younger but as soon as I had them removed they started moving, my dentist said they would move back. Now it’s 10 years later and I still have one front tooth that sticks out and it makes me really unhappy.

My problem has always been that I haven’t had enough space for my teeth, which is what has happened.

What are my options? I would like to have straight teeth again and hopefully avoiding a full metal brace. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.

My Teeth Seem To Be Moving And I Want To Have Veneers. I Researched Loads But Haven’t Ever Found An Accurate Price. Could You Tell Me?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’ve had a lot of trouble with my teeth in the past and I’ve had corrective treatment. I turned down braces due to a metal phobia and at the time (I was 16) my parents could not afford the invisalign braces. I’m now 18 and as the dentist warned me that my teeth would move (this is due to having my 2 fangs out as they grew in front of my teeth with two flat ones behind them. I really want veneers and the question is how much does it cost per tooth. I’ve researched loads but haven’t ever found an accurate price!

Q.

Hi there, I am 19 years old and I was wondering if there is anything I can do to get straighter teeth?
I have an over-bite and my front teeth over lap each other. I would like to avoid braces at all costs, Mostly because I’ve heard that they take like 4 years to straighten? Is there anyway I can do this without braces? I don’t want to look like a 12 year old. Please let me know if there is any other options? I am desperate! Thank you for your time.

Can Fixed Braces Be Attached To Porcelain Veneers? Replacing The Veneers Would Cost Too Much.

Friday, May 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have four porcelain veneers on my upper front teeth. Due to gum disease my upper right lateral incisor is moving my central incisor forward. I am hoping orthodontics treatment will help. I am interested in the six month smile fixed brace over Invisalign as it’s less complicated to manage daily. My only concern is whether fixed braces can be attached to porcelain veneers because the cost of replacing veneers is £800 each. This is more than the cost of the fixed brace treatment! Please could you help with this query; can fixed braces be attached to porcelain veneers without damaging them? I thank you in advance.

Which Brace Type Would You Recommend? Invisalign Or The British Version C-Thru?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. Which is the recommended procedure? Invisalign or the British alternative c-thru? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? My teeth are not very badly distorted and both have been recommended. The c-thru is supposed to be cheaper slightly but does that affect the end result? What procedure is more efficient and easier to maintain long term and how would this be achieved in both cases? Could you tell me what procedure you would recommend personally? I am a 40 year old female.
Thank you and regards.

I Would Like To Have Two Teeth Pushed Forward. What’s The Best Procedure For This And How Much Does It Cost?

Friday, May 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I have 2 teeth that I would like to get pushed forward, one on the top and one directly underneath on the bottom row, on my left side at the front of my mouth. I was wondering what the best procedure would be for this and how much it would cost? How long it will take and all the other information about the treatment? All my other teeth are pretty straight, it’s just these 2 teeth I have a problem with, appearance wise. Thanks.
