Would Lingual Brace Treatment Straighten My Rotated Canine?

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have just had a consultation for Invisalign but after finding out that it is not predictable for rotated canines I am now thinking about my other options.
Would lingual braces work for this? It is just my top right canine and so it would be nice to just have a brace on the top row, but not sure this is possible.
As yet I am yet to find anything that will sort out just this canine in a localised and more or less invisible way. Any information on this would be great. Thanks.

I’ve Been Told That My Teeth May Need To Be Contoured After Invisalign Treatment. Is This Correct?

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello,

I am a 50 year old female in good health and with good teeth.

I am considering having the Invisalign treatment to straighten my front teeth, which are not straight and overlap slightly.

A relative who has recently had this treatment has advised me that after my teeth are straightened they will be different lengths and may need contouring?

What does this mean and is this correct?

Thank you!

I Have Gaps But All Of My Front Teeth Are Straight. Would Simpli5 Be An Option? Or Would Invisalign Be More Suitable?

Friday, March 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I’ve had normal braces before through the NHS and they came off early as they kept braking all the time. I have gaps at the front but my teeth are all straight. Would Simpli5 be an option? Or would Invisalign be more suitable? If Simpli5 were suitable and they were on for 3 months for example how much would this cost? Or would I need to see a consultant? I hope to hear back from you, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What Would Be The Best Type Of Treatment To Close My Gaps? I Fear That My Teeth Will Continue To Shift If I Don’t Do Something About It?

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My lower incisors have a 1-2mm gap between each one. The teeth are in good condition, not crooked, none missing and no chips. What would be the best type of treatment to close the gaps?
The gaps have become more and more noticeable over the year and I fear that the teeth will continue the shift if I don’t do something about it.
I have read about Invisalign and was wondering if I would be a suitable candidate? I would like to know how long it takes to work and if they need adjusting over time. I look forward to receiving your advice with regards to this.

Could You Tell Me If It Would Be Possible To Use Lumineers To Correct My Two Front Teeth?

Friday, February 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. Could you tell me if it would it be possible to use Lumineers to correct my two front teeth?

They are set back further than the rest and also sit a little lower. Ideally I would like my two front teeth to be sitting a little higher up the gum and set forward with the other teeth.

At the side of the two front teeth, I have little ‘fangs’ which are slightly turning into the direction of the two front teeth. I would also like to have these fixed.

Braces aren’t an option for me due to the nature of my work, I am also not a candidate for Invisalign. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

I Like The Sound Of Invisible Braces As I Would Be Self-Conscious About How I Looked With Normal Ones. How Much Do They Cost?

Monday, February 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I’ve just been looking up about the ‘6 month smile’ treatment and wanted to know a little more information, such as how they look, can you see much? Also cost, as I don’t have a lot of money? I’m 21 years old and I’m unhappy about how my teeth look. They’re really overcrowded. I wouldn’t consider a brace any more, as I would be self-conscious about how it looked to others, seeing as I’m older now. I liked the sound of not being able to see anything in my mouth with the 6 month smile. If you could get back that would be great with any information that would be great, thanks.

Do All Dentists Offer Lingual Braces And Is There Any I Can Get Through The NHS?

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi ya there, I’m 25 and I was wondering that because I’m on employment allowance support and I need a brace really bad, whether could I get it for free? I really don’t want a standard brace but if I can’t get another type of brace I would. I don’t know whether my dentist would do all kinds of different braces like Invisalign and also would the NHS help me with this? If you could be so kind and reply back to me you would really help me. Many thanks, I hope you can help me with advice.

Q.

Hello,
I am a 28 year old male who is looking to straighten his teeth without unsightly braces. I am looking to have Invisalign work done. However, I do have two teeth missing on the upper jaw, is it possible to still have Invisalign?

Also, as it is quite expensive, what payment plans are offered for this kind of treatment?
This is a problem that I have had for some time. I hope you can answer my question as I’d love to have a straighter smile. Kind regards.

I’ve Spent A Lot Of Money On Braces But Feel That They Haven’t Worked. Is There Any Other Way My Teeth Can Be Straightened?

Thursday, January 9th, 2014
Q.

I had braces which my dentist removed one and a half year back. I didn’t wear the retainers as it hurt a lot. She completed my treatment without removing any of my teeth. After finishing my treatment I still felt that my upper teeth were still in front and my friends felt that too. What should I do to get my teeth straight? I don’t want braces again. Is there any other option which would have a reasonable cost since I have spent more than 40k on my treatment already?
