Can a Gap in My Teeth be Reduced by Veneers?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

I was born without the right lateral tooth and always had a gap between my front teeth. Now I am too old for braces and I had a rear molar removed in the back upper and the two front teeth have shifted over further, so much that the one front tooth is almost in the place that the lateral tooth should be in, so it is set back. I want to do veneers or Lumineers, but I am not sure what can be done. Please help. I went for a consultation and an orthodontist confirmed I am too old to start shifting teeth around but I already knew that. I left that practice because there was no alternative solution given, except root canal on a perfectly healthy tooth to shave down the length. I believe the gap can be lessened by veneers and if not corrected totally.

Can My Dentist Make Changes to My Veneers Without Telling Me?

Friday, August 14th, 2015
Q.

Hello,
I had my veneers fitted last Thursday and the dentist made changes to both the colour I had decided upon and also the shape etc. without discussing with me (or gaining any consent) prior to them being fitted. He also didn’t show me the veneers before cementing them on.
He now says that he can’t fit me in until next week to discuss my concerns.
Is he allowed to have made changes to my veneers without consulting me about these changes first? I am now left with teeth half a shade darker and he has also taken the liberty of adding a mix to them, to make them natural – I wanted B1 and he said to me (only AFTER he had finished my veneer fitting treatment) that he had made them B2 – I am so disappointed and distressed as he has also shortened them and pushed them back..
Where do I stand – what can be done?
Any help would be gratefully received.

Will Veneers on Just 4 Teeth Make a Noticeable Difference?

Friday, May 29th, 2015
Q.

I’m considering having teeth whitening and veneers. Before visiting my dentist I had in mind just the top 8 teeth but my dentist advised to just get the front 4, as my other teeth are good size, with just 4 veneers and the other 4 teeth visible in my smile. Will there be a noticeable difference? And as a separate question, my dentist also advised Zirconium veneers but Google results suggest these aren’t the best for front teeth. Can you offer any advice on the above questions and any recommendations?

Can I Get Veneers on the NHS Through a Private Dentist?

Monday, April 20th, 2015
Q.

My teeth are in quite a state. They are discoloured, one is chipped, and I was also advised I have too many teeth in my mouth. Stemming from a mental health reason, I have eaten sweets over the years and now I am paying the price. I don’t apply for jobs that require customer contact as I have a great fear that people are looking at my teeth, which makes me so depressed. I also never smile for the same reason. As I am a full time carer I will never have the money for the treatment. I was advised by my last dentist to get veneers.My question is can I get veneers on the NHS done through a private dentist? Thank you.

Can I Have My Relapsed Teeth Corrected Naturally?

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I used to wear fixed top and bottom braces when I was younger, for three years. My teeth were perfect but started to move about 7 years ago. On my top teeth, one front tooth has started to stick out a little and it’s very upsetting. How can this be corrected naturally, without veneers etc.? My bottom teeth are very crooked now, I had about 4 teeth extracted when the braces were fitted as I have a small mouth but large teeth, my jaw is cross biting and it’s effecting my speech slightly. Can you help me please?

Can I Get a Full Set of Veneers?

Monday, March 23rd, 2015
Q.

Hi. I currently have braces and I’m very insecure about my teeth. I wanted to know about having a full set of veneers? I just wondered if that’s possible and how much it would be. I recently had my braces fitted and had 6 teeth taken out. My front teeth have started to get gappy, and the teeth don’t seem to be closing. I hate the shape and colour too. I think they’re too small. I’ve always had bad teeth since I was little and always been picked on! I’m 18 and have braces now but I just want the problem fixed and want new teeth. Thank you.

Q.

Hello. I have three crowns at front of my mouth and have three teeth missing, for which I wear a partial plate for the missing teeth. My question is, can I have a set of veneers fitted over this and what would it entail to have this done? Also what would it all entail to achieve this and what might be the cost for total treatment?

Should I Get Endodontic and Prosthodontic Treatment?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015
Q.

My front central incisors are big and protruding and rest of my teeth are aligned and straight. My orthodontic asked me to go to a prosthodontist and an endodontist for my two teeth. I am concerned how it will go inward and sharpen up. I am more concerned about the procedure. Moreover, endodontics means my tooth will be dead after etc. I am also concerned about the life of a prosthetic cap. Please help, shall I go for it? What do you call this treatment, is it porcelain veneers? What is the cost of that? What is the durability and precautions? Please help, thanks.

Can I Have My Teeth Screwed in After Having Dentures for 29 Years?

Friday, February 6th, 2015
Q.

How much does it cost to have your teeth screwed in? I’ve had dentures for 29 years and I hate them. All my teeth are bad. Can I even get screwed in teeth after having dentures for so long? Are there any dental plans that help with the cost? I am poor and living on social security. What are veneers? Do you take them out or are they permanent? I hate having something on the roof of my mouth and my teeth don’t fit me well and sometimes cause discomfort.

Which Veneers Would Be Best for Me?

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015
Q.

Hi there Dr Hughes. Please can you tell me which veneers I would need? I am on a small budget but require veneers for two of my teeth on either side.

I want something that will last and I am also a coffee and tea addict. My teeth are discolored and it is getting me down. One of my front teeth has a cap on it and I’m not sure if I am able to wear veneers. Also does it hurt? Is there any way I’d be able to get free help? I also have an exemption card. Please can you let me know the cost thanks again?  Many thanks.
