Is there anything I can do about my gap teeth?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

Hello there, I was just wondering what can I do about my gap teeth. I have had my gap ( front teeth) since I was a child and its stopped me from smiling I can’t stand it. when I was a little girl i wanted to cut between my gap to see if i could close it myself but obviously that wasn’t a good idea i’m so desperate i’m a grown woman now and i still don’t smile due to this gap in my teeth. and i was wondering how much it cost. i can’t afford a very expensive treatment thank you very much

Will veneers make my teeth protrude?

Monday, August 22nd, 2011
Q.

Hi I am 25 year old female that has been told i have periodontitis. I have received treatment for this in the form of scaling and root planning. I also have receded gums five gum pockets between my front teeth which have made me very depressed. I have seen one cosmetic dentist and he said he can add composite resin to these teeth to make them look more natural and close the gaps, is this good for the gum? What other option do I have veneers? Would this make my teeth even more protruding? I have also had braces for a year to correct an over bite and close some gum gaps where the teeth had been stripped a little to make the gaps smaller but the gum gaps are still there. I also have a permanent brace behind my top teeth to stop it from moving. I have been in a very depressive state as to what can be done about my teeth to keep my gums stable. What can be done aesthetically to help me get my confidence back and smile?
Please can you help me as I feel I dont know what can be done?

Why will veneers make my teeth look bulky?

Friday, July 15th, 2011
Q.

Hello, I want to have veneers on my two top front teeth as I dislike the shape and colour of them (I currently have composite fillings which are unsightly looking).

Two dentists however have told me that veneers would look bulky on my teeth. I don’t understand – why would they look bulky if a veneer is the same thickness as the amount of tooth removed?

My teeth are in line, but I do have a 6mm overbite (which does not bother me). Would this be why they might look bulky?

Are my veneers fitted correctly?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011
Q.

Hello recently  I have just had veneers fitted  as one of my front teeth had died and had turned yellow .Also there was a gap between my teeth which has been closed slightly and the front four teeth have been capped . But now i cant close my mouth properly and the teeth rest on my bottom lip and my top lip sticks out more. The my teeth did do this slightly before I’d gotten veneers fitted but not as much as they do now . Also when i put my bottom and top lips together it feels as if I have to stretch my lip to get it to cover my teeth, for example when you stretch your lips to rub together after you’ve just put a fresh coat of lipstick on. Surely this cant be right ?
Thank you for your time

Q.

Hey Dr. Mark,  A female,I live in Jordan middle east, am 23 with a very bad experience with braces for 8years, which caused badly stained teeth, and i have been using dental composite (teeth facing) for the past 5 – 6 years.
I hate the way my teeth look, i wish to re-size them and make them brighter and get a perfect smile.

oh and i have 2 implants i did them 3 weeks ago.

My main question what do you think is better in my case lumineers or Vaneers? and for how long they last?
Many Thanks,

What is the best way to close the gaps at the front of my mouth?

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011
Q.

I have gaps between my two front teeth and between my right front tooth and lateral incisor, and my left lateral incisor and canine. I want to get braces to fix this. Orthodontist says my bottom jaw is too big for my top jaw, so can’t close the gap. Lateral incisors did not grow wide enough, so there is spaces. They can shave my bottom teeth vertically, push them backwards and close the top jaw teeth a little, but will need bonding on the sides of the lateral incisors to close all gaps. I am not excited about bonding on lateral incisors. I was wondering if a veneer on the canines would be sound and they could widen that tooth instead of widening the lateral incisor. Question – would that look too odd or be not strong on a canine tooth? Especially since the problem is that my lateral incisors are the problem with not being wide enough? i don’t want my teeth to look too wide or unnatural. I want a long term solution.

What type of veneers are best for my teeth?

Monday, June 20th, 2011
Q.

i am thinking about having veneers on my upper 6 front teeth, and my dentist said to use vita veneers, one dentist said take the veneers to the tooth tip the other said take it over the tip and around, over the incisor edge. what do you advise?
they also said about having temporary veneers but didn’t explain exactly how these stick to my teeth while i wait for the real ones to be made?
I do not have any decay and my gums are healy the teeth are just very crooked and i would like them to appear staighter and fresher looking.
how long doyou think they will last also?

thank you

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

hi I have had a gap inbetween my front two teeth since they came through I find them them really uncomfortable to smile with and just dont feel happy in myself because I know they are there.

I was wondering about the cost of treatment involving an implant and 8 veneers?

Thursday, May 12th, 2011
Q.

Hi there Andrew. I am very keen to get an implant for my upper right tooth (4 from the front) to be replaced. As a teacher and part-time professional singer I get so embarrassed and just want to jolly-well smile again. I have a private filling on my front tooth replaced two years ago following a tooth being cracked in half as a teenager. I really need an implant and 8 teeth to be veneered and leveled out (my teeth at the upper front are about 1/1.5m in different heights). Ironically my lower teeth are near perfect and my childhood dentist, a charleton, never touched them! My ultimate question is this – to have the above treatment do you have any idea as to how much I would look at paying? The next step would then be to pluck up the courage after 1 1/2 years of not going to the dentist through shame!

Warm regards and thanks,  (30 years old)
