I Am Self Conscious About My Teeth And Want To Know Whether I’m Too Young For Teeth Whitening?

Friday, January 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes, I’m 16, 17 in January and I really want to get my teeth whitened as I feel self conscious about my teeth as they’re slightly yellow. I don’t want to use a home kit as I don’t want to get it wrong. Would someone at my age be allowed laser teeth whitening? Also what are the disadvantages, how long will it take? Will it be noticeable and how will it cost? Thank you for your time and consideration.

I’ve Just Had My Teeth Polished But The Stains On My Teeth Are Still There. What Else Can I Do?

Thursday, December 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I currently have brown stains on my teeth and I have just had a polished at the dentists but they are still there. How can I get rid of them? Are there any home treatments I can use? Or do I have to see someone? How much would it cost? Or am I just stuck with them? I drink a tea a lot and fizzy juice but have started to cut down on the juice but still drink tea but with no sugar. If you could help me that would be great as It affects my confidence and I find it hard to smile and talk to people.

I Have Brown Stains On My Teeth As I Smoke And Drink Coffee. What Can I Do To Get Rid Of Them?

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I currently have brown stains on the front of my teeth that are ingrained on the lines where my fillings have been put in and from smoking and drinking tea/coffee, is there a way to remove them? They are very ugly and noticeable and making me not want to smile any more at all! Can you help me with this? They are horizontal brownish lines and on four of my teeth every time I smile I can see them. If there is a way to fix them how much would it cost and what solutions could there be? I smoke around about five cigarettes a day and drink quite a few cups of tea and coffee daily!

I’m Considering Veneers – Will They Look Natural?

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013
Q.

Is it possible to have veneered two front teeth only? Also, I imagine it would be a challenge to match them to blend in with the rest my teeth? The front right tooth is half-filled and at the top where tooth meets the gum the enamel is quite damaged, it’s almost scraped and it’s become like a brown dent, gradually extending. Obviously I would think twice if they didn’t quite match up. There’s nothing wrong with my front left tooth though. Any advice would help me greatly? Thank you.

How Should I Rectify My Fluoride Staining?

Friday, June 7th, 2013
Q.

When I was young, I had nice white teeth but as I grew older and my adult teeth came through it began to turn brown! I’ve always taken care of my teeth and I don’t know why they turned brown, but I went to the doctor’s so I could find out what was going on and the doctor advised me that my mum had taken antibiotics whilst she was pregnant with me. I currently have 2 veneers and 4 crowns at the top but my bottom teeth still remains brown. I was just wondering if there was anything that I can do to solve my brown teeth problem!!! Please help as it’s getting a little bit too frustrating!! Kind Regards.

I’m Thirteen And Have Stained Teeth, Are Veneers A Possible Solution?

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013
Q.

I was wondering if people from the age of 13 and under have the ability to get dental veneers or at least something to help stained, ‘odd’ teeth.

I’m a 13 yr old female and I have sincerely hated my teeth since I was 11. It was only until then I noticed how much of a difference they make to your appearance & ever since I’ve been trying every thing to rid of the problems that I have made for myself .

I wish I had taken much more care of my teeth, but I guess I’m unable to do so now.

Any advice & tips would be appreciated, also.

Thank you.

How Much Is It To Go Private For My Veneers Or Will The NHS Do Them?

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013
Q.

Hi, I’m 23 and have a big gap between my front two teeth and then two very small teeth either side, I also have stains (from when I was born) on my front teeth. I am very aware of my teeth and how they look. It knocks my confidence and soemtimes I can get quite down about their appearance which obviously impacts on how I act with people and could potentially be limiting me. I went to my NHS dentist but my dentist won’t give me veneers as he says there is nothing medically wrong with my teeth, I don’t have any fillings. How much is it to go private or can I get this treatment on the NHS? Thank you for your help.

My Teeth Are Very Sensitive And Discoloured, Is Whitening Toothpaste My Best Bet?

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013
Q.

I am 62 years old and have lost the enamel off my teeth; I have been informed this is due to eating too much fruit.
I am very embarrassed to talk let alone smile, due to the dark colour of my teeth.
I am due to attend a very important wedding soon and I am so worried about my teeth that I am now considering having them whitened.
I do have sensitive teeth and use Sensodyne toothpaste but I believe the whitening process increases sensitivity and am a little concerned about that.
I would truly appreciate your comments please.

Can I Get My Teeth Filed Down For Cosmetic Reasons?

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hi there,
Over the years my front two teeth have started to chip away..there are only a few small chips and I was wondering if it was possible to get them filed down? This doesn’t cause me pain at all, it’s purely for cosmetic purposes really so I am not in need of urgent surgery or anything. If it is possible to get them down how much would that cost roughly?

Also one of my canines is discoloured and the surface is not like the rest of my teeth. It’s bumpy and rough. I’m not too sure what had caused it but is there anything I could do to change the colour and smooth the tooth down?
