Good Day Dr Hughes. Can I Have Veneers Fitted When My Two Front Teeth Are Crossed Over?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Q.

Good day Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me. Can I have dental veneers fitted when my two front teeth are slightly crossed over? I have always been self conscious about my teeth and veneer treatment seems to be the best option for me so far. I’m just unsure whether this would work as a friend told me that veneers are more commonly used for gaps. Also am I able to pay on finance when getting veneers? Am I able to get veneers at the age of 18 years old?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

Could You Tell Me Whether My Son’s Orthodontist Has Given The Right Course Of Action?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello. My 14 year old son has a lot of overcrowding, which requires 3 teeth removed, his upper k9 teeth are very high up in the gums, and to complicate things further, he has one upper front tooth missing and currently wears a denture plate. His orthodontist has suggested braces for 2 and a half years, and pulling the teeth next to his missing tooth into the gap, and after braces are off capping the tooth that was next to the missing front tooth to make it look like a front tooth, and capping the k9 to make it look like the tooth that has become the front tooth, but doing this will leave my son unable to wear a denture and live with a gap and then a small tooth in the gap until its capped after the 2 and a half years, is this the only way to deal with this problem? Could braces not be used to straighten the teeth but leave a gap for him to continue to wear a denture and then at the end of the treatment to straighten, the denture be replaced by an implant? My son is devastated by the prospect of revealing that he has a false tooth to his peers. Regards.

Is There Any Way I Can Close The Gaps In My Teeth Naturally?

Friday, June 27th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Moore. I have a small gap between my front teeth. I consulted a dentist recently but they told me that if I wear braces then one of my front teeth will come under the other. But this gap is really annoying. Is there any way to close the gaps naturally without having to fill gaps and all? I feel very disappointed with these gaps. I don’t like to use artificial methods to fill gaps. Do you know how much treatment would cost? Thank you for your time.

I’ve Been Quoted £4500 For Full Braces Treatment Over Two Years. Is This Correct Or Am I Being Overcharged?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi,

I recently had a consultation for Fast Braces. After getting my OPG scan done I was told I didn’t qualify for Fast Braces and my only other realistic option would be conventional train tracks.

I’ve been quoted £4500 for the full works for a treatment plan of two years. If accepted for the finance plan, I would need to pay 30% upfront with the remainder due over the next ten months.  Based on the information I’ve given what I would like to know is, is the cost correct or am I being overcharged?  Is there anything I should be concerned about going forward?

I just want to make sure I’m making the right decision.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I Have Porcelain Crowns And Veneers. I Would Like To Know If It’s Possible To Have Lingual Braces?

Friday, March 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark, I would like to know if it possible for me to have lingual braces? I have porcelain crowns with metal posts on my two front teeth and veneers on the two teeth either side.
I have a small upper arch and originally my upper front teeth were overlapped before they were replaced with crowns and posts. I have always wanted to have my teeth straightened but was put off by a dentist who did not want to offer me braces. I have since read on the internet that it is possible to have lingual braces on crowned teeth. I would like some advice on this if it’s possible. Thank you for your time.

I Suffer From TMJ Which Causes A Lot Of Pain. Can You Tell Me If Braces Can Fix This Problem?

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes,
I have a condition with my jaw called TMJ disorder (Temporomandibular Joint) this causes me a lot of pain and is very uncomfortable at times I had a MRI scan which showed a problem with my right side it was not explained well what was wrong with it just that when my mouth is closed my jaw doesn’t sit correctly. They explained that I could have jaw wash out surgery but this sounds very painful. Just wondering whether braces would help with this condition? Also I should mention that my front top and bottom teeth are slightly overlapped. Do you do a pay monthly scheme?

Do You Need Braces If You Only Have A Little Bit Of An Overbite?

Monday, December 2nd, 2013
Q.

Do you need braces if you only have a little bit of overbite? My top four teeth are covering my four bottom teeth just a tiny bit so would I need braces? Would I need braces on my top teeth and my bottom teeth or just the top teeth or the bottom teeth? Also my four bottom teeth are a tiny bit crooked as well, would I need braces for that? What kind of health issues are caused by overcrowding? Thank you, I know I have a lot of questions, but any information you can provide me with would be a great help.

Hi, I’m A Student In University And My Overcrowded Smile Is Getting Me Down. How Can You Help Me?

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Bohara. I’m a 23 years old and I’m also currently a student in university. I have a lot of overcrowding which has caused my teeth to become very crooked, I’ve seen my dentist and he said my teeth are in good condition but to get a great smile I’d need some teeth removed and braces. Would I get them discounted or for free since I’m a student? My oral situation is really depressing me, I never smile in photos and I’m extremely self conscious about my teeth. I hope you can help me with this matter. Thank you.

I Want To Know Which Retainer Option Is The Best For Me As My Teeth Overlap Slightly?

Monday, September 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hello, I’m currently having treatment for minor relapse on my upper row. My two front teeth overlap slightly. Currently I have a spring retainer which I feel is working really well for me.

I was wondering which type of retention option do you consider to be the best? There are so many types now with many different pros and cons available.

Also, a friend of mine needed a new Essix retainer so I recommended the dentist who is currently completing my treatment. My friend has advised to me that the retainer she has just received is of very poor quality. How can I tell/ find somewhere that will provide me a good retention option?

Thank you in advance for your time.

My Overlapping Teeth Are Affecting My Confidence At Work, And Struggle To Pay For Finance. Can You Guide Me?

Thursday, August 29th, 2013
Q.

Hi and hello Dr Moore. I have overlapping teeth at the front on my top row, I have no confidence and cannot smile when on pictures or out with friends. I have been to many consultations and the price of veneers and root canal just seems to go up and up as I work as a pharmacy dispenser I have to pay for all my treatment. I do attend my dentist for check-ups and so on and I have tried finance also but I was not accepted due to having no credit. Is there any other payment plans by the NHS or could I get any help at all? I can’t wait any longer as my teeth depress me and sometimes I don’t even want to leave the house but I have to for work. Can you guide me please as to what to do? Thank you very much and Kind regards.
