My Fillings Have Stained My Tooth, What Can Be Done?

Monday, March 25th, 2013
Q.

Hi there,

I have two very large amalgam fillings in my first molar (?!) on ether side of my top row of teeth and they have stained what little remaining tooth I have left a horrible grey/black colour. When I first had them done I didn’t realise they were going to be so far forward and visible in my mouth (4th tooth along from centre on either side). Every time I smile and even speak they are visible and I absolutely hate them. They have ruined my confidence and I have seen my dentist about replacing them but he says they are too large and even more of the tooth would have to be removed. I guess he is right but after years and years I just want to be able to smile properly without covering my mouth!

What options are available to me please?

Thank you.

Smoking Has Stained My Already Crooked Teeth, What Treatments Are There For Me?

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013
Q.

hi dr I wanted to ask how much will it cost all together to fix my teeth which is stained really bad from cigarettes, I have been smoking for a long time maybe 15 years or more and it is horrible to have a yellow tint on your teeth. Also I think that the bottom row needs to be straightened? I may need braces for the bottom row,basically I need a full teeth whitening or I think you call it bleaching? I am in a bad way over my teeth and think that lots of treatment is needed all over, am not really show about filling but I would like the full top and bottom fixed please and whatever else that needs to be fixed which i dont know about my teeth… thank you

Is Fluorosis Irreversible?

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013
Q.

My daughter of seven years has badly stained teeth from using too much fluoride toothpaste and probably swallowing it. I overbrushed her teeth not realising the negative effects this could have on young teeth. Her self-esteem is affected now and she’s embarassed to smile. Do you have any advice? She’s using a non-fluoride toothpaste now and drinking bottled water. She’s also allergic to dairy products and is taking a calcium supplement. Is the fluorosis irreversible?Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks and we look forward to your reply.

How Can I Whiten My Teeth? I’ve Tried Everything!

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor Hughes! I have discoloured teeth and I really want to whiten them and I have tried lots of different methods but so far, nothing seems to work. I also broke my two front teeth down the middle, and had to have fake teeth fitted in their place so I have had to have fake teeth there. But I have tried everything! I have used countless whitening toothpastes, whitening strips, and even baking soda. NOTHING WORKS! I need help, my teeth are like kinda yellow and I don’t like the way they look and it really bothers me. I look after my teeth and consider to have good oral health. At the moment I am brushing my teeth like four times a day with whitening toothpaste, and I floss twice a day. Help me please! I look forward to reading your response. Thank you.

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

I have a stain on my front tooth its a yellow big mark and the bottom of it is chipped as well. I was wondering what I need to do to fix this please. the rest of my teeth are also stained, I dont have any decays or fillings or anything too. I would also like it to be even and straight like a celebrities to be able to smile properly again without hiding my teeth. I would like to know about costs and what treatment it is that I need to get this sorted please. I dont want any teeth to be removed so I would like to keep my normal teeth but at the same time have a nice smile.
