I Don’t Like The Shading Of New Veneer, Is There Any Way I Can Get It The Same Shade?

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013
Q.

Hello, I’d like to present you with a problem I’ve been having, I had my front 10 of my teeth done with dental lumineers about 5 years ago. My fourth tooth has broke on two separate occasions, so my dentist decided on a 3/4 crown. I just got the permanent one today and it looks a lot lighter – I can definitely tell, and I don’t like it, it seems like it’s doesn’t look right to me, BUT it is the furthest back pre-molar, so it’s not super obvious. My dentist who is also my Brother-in-law says that it is the exact same shade as my other teeth and will darken over time? Is this correct? Is there something I can do to speed up the process and get it to go the same shade as my other teeth? I hope you can help.

I’m Considering Veneers Because I Don’t Want My Teeth Shaving Down, How Much Should I Expect To Pay For This Treatment?

Friday, June 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I am considering some cosmetic dental work. When I was young I broke my 2 front teeth and so I already have 2 veneers, I don’t want my teeth ground down so I am considering lumineers. How much on average do these cost and how do I go about finding a local dentist that can perform this kind of work?
The reason I want this done is because my teeth are quite stained, I have recently had teeth whitening but have not received the desired shade of white. Are there any other treatments you can recommend?

Can You Get Lumineers Done On Teeth Which Have Been Filled?

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013
Q.

Hello there Dr Solanki. I have a slight problem that I hope you can help me with. I’m looking for some advice as to whether or not it is possible to have lumineers on filled teeth? Basically, there wasn’t a massive hole so the filling isn’t too large and I’ve been speaking to a friend who has had extensive dental work done in the past, however they seem unsure so wanted an expert opinion. Also, after doing a little independent reading around the topic it seems that staining could be an issue? I’m a little confused so would appreciate it if you could clarify. Thank you.

I currently have veneers, but would like to have porcelain lumineers fitted instead. Is this an option?

Monday, March 18th, 2013
Q.

Hi, is it possible to have lumineers fitted, as i already have porcelain ones which I’ve had almost 10 years but the front one snapped a couple of months ago and its been replaced by an ugly yellow NHS veneer! And also I would like to know what material the NHS veneers are now made of as this seems to be thicker and rough compared with my old smooth shiny ones. Thanks :)

Skiing accident caused damage to teeth. what would you recommend in terms of Lumineers/Veneers?

Friday, February 15th, 2013
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes

I have just come back from Chamonix where I had a skiing accident involving trauma to my face, which included a lacerated lip and a broken front tooth. I work as a clinical pharmacist at The London Clinic on 20 Devonshire Place and I was wondering what you would recommend in terms of Lumineers/Veneers. I am extremely conscious about discolouration of the tooth. At present I have a composite in place but acknowledge this is a temporary measure for 6 months if not 3 months according to the NHS dentist as the root may die, but only time will tell. The dentist said the best thing to get was a lumineer – is this true? If i get one lumineer on the broken tooth does this mean I will need my whole upper set of teeth done also. I dont want to have to go through ridiculous expense but I am so paranoid now, I wont smile or open my mouth too much for fear of anyone seeing my teeth. I used to love my teeth after 2 and half long painful years of orthodontal treatment. Please could you advise me on what the best options are for me and the time frame from which I should proceed with getting a permanent tooth. I want to be confident in at least my smile. Its very important in the day job to converse with patients and I do not want the first thing they notice to be a bad tooth.

Kind Regards

I want to get a beautiful, white smile but I worry about the cost. Can you give me a quote?

Friday, January 4th, 2013
Q.

To be able to get my upper and the lower teeth done for Lumineer treatment, how much would the total cost be, I have quite a few crooked teeth, I have one crown at the back. All my life I hated my teeth and i have always wanted beautuful white straight teeth like the celebrities…friends dont think my teeth are that bad but I don’t believe them abd more than ever I’m very determined to get them done and at the same time I am worrued about the cost too? Which is why I’d very much appreciate a quote from you or perhaps you can recommend someone more local to me. would you be able to recommend a good dentist to carry out the proceedure in North London please? Thank you for your time.

My teeth are small, what’s the best cosmetic dental treatment available to make them appear larger?

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012
Q.

Dear Dr Mark Hughes

I really would like to have a bigger smile, my teeth are kind of small.
Maybe I’ll make a facial cosmetic surgery when I’ll have my 20 years;

BUT…..

-What should I first do:
Facial cosmetic surgery first or make my teeth first ?

-What is the best :
Veneers or da Vinci Veneers or MAC Veneers or Lumineers ? And can one of these make my smile or teeth bigger ?

Actually I just want to make my smile like Michael Jackson’s big smile; but compared to teeth can I make my teeth as big as Michael Jackson’s big teeth just at the top ?

Do you think that Lumineers would work for me?

Monday, June 18th, 2012
Q.

Hi there, I’m very interested in some dental work. I am self conscious about my smile as my front two teeth are not straight. I have been looking into this for a while but never looked into the cost. How much on average would it be for my front four teeth to be worked on. I have recently been looking at Lumineers I would like to know your recommendation on these and the price of both vaneers and Lumineers. I would like a natural set to have. Smile I can be proud of

Could I have Lumineers bonded over the top of my existing veneers?

Friday, March 30th, 2012
Q.

hi
Please can you tell me if lumineers would bond onto existing 21 year old porcelain venners,as my dental hospital are reluctant to take my old venners off as my teeth behind them have severe bruxism damage and would probably snap if attempted. The problem seems to do with the bonding side of things. Or is there any other type that would bond.The original veneers were to close gaps in my upper front four teeth and now because of the age of them the gaps have slowly reappeared.
Thanks

My front teeth are becoming very thin, would Lumineers or cosmetic bonding be a good choice?

Friday, March 23rd, 2012
Q.

I am 31 years of age with a good set of teeth as I have no fillings.

However, the main problem I have is that my front two teeth are becoming very thin as my enamel has gradually reduced over time- so thin on one of my teeth that you can see through 2mm of it. I am becoming increasingly worried about chipping my front teeth whilst I eat, as they seem very weak.

I am interested in cosmetic surgery for the front two teeth. If anything I would like to strengthen and restore my natural teeth and therefore wonder whether Lumineers or cosmetic bonding would suit. Alternatively, you may know of something longer lasting and of more benefit to me.

I am situated in Lincolnshire and would like to know of a contact around the area rather than being directed to e.g. London.
Thank you
