I Currently Have A Set Of Plastic Dentures Which I’d Like Replaced. I’m Unaware Of What Is Available. Could You Tell Me How Much It Would Cost?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore,

I have a set of 3 false teeth at the front of my mouth (top set). And also I have one to the left side and one at the very back on the right side. I currently have the standard dentures with all the plastic which I really hate and I’d like to have this replaced with something else but unsure of what is available. What would you recommend and also what sort of cost would I be looking at if I had them replaced with something else? Thank you for your time and helpful advice in advance.

Is It Fair That My Dentist Can Charge An Extra £300 For Each Crowns Lab Fee?

Friday, June 20th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have a dental discount plan which covers dental services at a discounted price. I recently had six crowns placed (lower front, 22-27).
Standard price quoted was £1,100 and discounted price was £428.
However my dentist charged me an additional lab fee of £300 for each crown. Is this correct? I heard that crowns include lab fees.
My dentist charged me a “lab fee” in addition to the cost of the crown. I thought the cost of the crown would include lab fees associated with the crown. Any information on this would be very helpful as I currently don’t know where to turn. Thank you.

I Had To Stop My Cosmetic Dental Work Halfway Through Due To Unseen Circumstances. Would I Qualify For NHS Crowns?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. I started cosmetic dental work around 18 months ago and had my front 6 teeth filed and temporary’s put on. Due to unforeseen financial circumstances I couldn’t afford to go ahead with the treatment and I still have these temporary’s on, almost two years later. I’m embarrassed to see the dentist as it’s been so long and my gum are pretty red also. Would I qualify for NHS crowns as I have an exemption card or would this still be seen as cosmetic? Thanks.

I Have Been Quoted The Sum Of £1000 For Two Fixed Bridges. Is This A Fair Price?

Monday, May 19th, 2014
Q.

Dear Mark. I have been quoted the sum of £1000 for two fixed bridges on the upper teeth. Is this a fair price? I am returning to my dentist today to get a breakdown of the costs involved.
My jaw is not suitable for implants.
Could you suggest any other options for replacing these teeth please? Also how long does a dental bridge last as I am concerned that I may have to pay this amount of money again in a few years.
Thank you.

Hello Mark. Does Invisalign Have To Be Paid Off In One Lump Sum Or Can It Be Paid Off Monthly?

Monday, May 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I hope you can help me. I was just wondering if the Invisalign treatments have to be paid in a just one lump sum or if it can be paid monthly or something like that? I live up North, so I would be using the practice that would be closest to me. I have an over-bite and my top teeth are almost straight though my bottom set are in need of sorting, therefore if there is somewhere I can pay it monthly I will definitely book mine as soon as I know. Thank you in advance for your advice.

Do You Know How I Can Get In Touch With Any Dentists Who Offer A Payment Plan?

Friday, May 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I’ve been trying to get help for a long time but I don’t know how to go about it. I had a partial top denture fitted some years ago now all the remaining top teeth have decayed and I seriously need help. Someone told me that there are dentists who would do the work required on a payment plan? I don’t know of any? The damage done to my teeth was mainly caused by an ill fitted denture and the dentist that did the work is no longer there. Just getting up each day is so depressing. Every time I look at my teeth I just want to lock myself away. I would appreciate any advice or help you could give me. Thank you.

I Would Like To Pay For Treatment On A Monthly Basis. Is This Possible?

Friday, March 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I am 25 years old and I have really bad crooked teeth an I am so desperate to have them done. I did have the chance when I was 16 to have them done but I was so scared and young it didn’t matter to me back then. I am older now and have realised what a bad mistake I made. I am really cautious and I never smile, it makes me feel down at times. I don’t have the cost to pay for it all at once, but I would be able to pay monthly. I would appreciate it if you could get back to me about paying monthly for my teeth to be done. Thank you.

Hi Andrew, I need some advice. My teeth are in a bad condition with 4 that are missing, it’s embarrassing and uncomfortable. What are my options as I don’t have a dentist and I currently have no employment? Thanks, I really want to get this sorted, I just want to know my options, if any, and also costs and any other information that is relevant to solving the issue, it seems as hard as I try to look after my teeth, it’s always too late and my confidence levels are dropping rapidly.

Help! My Dog Chewed My Dentures And I’m Not Insured. Is There Any Way To Insure Them In The Future?

Thursday, March 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. How can I insure my dentures against accidental damage – my dog chewed them – my home contents insurance covers most things in the home for accidental damage for say dropping a television but it excludes anything that is chewed by domestic pets such as dogs and cats. I don’t know what else to do under these circumstances? Is there any insurance I can take out to cover this type of damage to my dentures? Can you help please and advise what to do under these circumstances? It would be great to hear back from you on this matter. Thank you.
