Would Veneers be the Best Treatment for my Darkened Tooth?

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I had root canal treatment on one of my front teeth over 5 years ago, and it has now got very dark/black. I have been very self-conscious about this and think a veneer on this tooth may be the best option? I am aware that the tooth is dead and the last time I had the root canal treatment they gave me a gum shield with liquid in it to whiten the tooth, but now it has got very dark and has been for last 2/3 years. I am aware of the costs and would be willing to pay it, could you give me advice please? Thank you.

My Veneers Keep Breaking and Crumbling. Is This Normal?

Friday, November 14th, 2014
Q.

I recently had composite veneers on my top front teeth 6 in total and want them redone by a different dentist in January, as they don’t look right. The colour is completely off and the surface is very uneven. Is this normal? They have also broken off and crumbled twice and I’ve had to go back. The first time I tapped one when I drank from a cup and it literally disintegrated – surely this isn’t normal? They are also not straight and two teeth are now wobbly with gaps, which I didn’t have before, and I have healthy gums.Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer.

Could Veneers Have Worked Instead of 4 Years of Braces?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I am 44 years old and had traditional braces on for four years. They have just been removed and now I have demineralization white spots on my teeth around where the brackets were. I was told that these spots are permanent and cannot be removed. The dentist recommended veneers, after 4 years and $6000 worth of braces. Could I have just gotten the veneers without the braces 4 years ago? Is it true the the white spots are permanent and cannot be removed? If so, what are the major differences between the veneers: durathin, Lumineers, porcelain, composite, MAC, Da Vinci. Thank you.

What is the Best Treatment for Dental Fluorosis on the Teeth?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have dental fluorosis on both of my two front teeth. They are noticeably stained with large circular white marks, one on each of the two teeth. I feel that this affects the overall appearance of my teeth. I am 19 years old and I would really like to fix this problem. Would you recommend something along the line of veneers or Lumineers, or a treatment that is something totally different to veneers? I do not have a problem with the rest of my teeth, it is just the appearance of the front two that I would like to fix. I would appreciate any help you can give.
Thank you.

My Veneers Have Altered My Bite. Can They Be Leveled?

Monday, September 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I recently had veneers on 5 of my front teeth, and am very disappointed and have no faith in the dentist who did them. Two of my teeth already had old veneers on them and the dentist had a great deal of trouble getting these off. I think he may have shaved off too much tooth. I queried the colour (A1) which is far too white. One of the incisors is longer than the other so my bite is now wrong. The incisors also jut out more than before and feel very uncomfortable.
Can the incisors be leveled? I went as a private patient and paid £2.500. Can you offer any advice on how to correct this?

Could I Get Veneers to Change the Shape of My Teeth?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had braces in the past, but my front teeth relapsed slightly after the treatment had finished. I am due to turn 21 this year and I have been unhappy with my 4 top front teeth for a while. I have spent a lot of money on my braces to still be this unhappy. I think my teeth are oddly shaped and they push out from the side. I was considering veneers or something similar, would these be suitable to change the shape of my teeth? I would like some advice on what my options would be. I am not very familiar with veneers or the price range but I am willing to consider my options. Thank you in advance.

Hi. I Would Like To Know Which Treatments Are Capable Of Broadening My Smile?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I wanted to ask you if you know of any other ways to broaden my smile . I have already paid £3000 for braces, where my orthodontist decided to pull 2 of my teeth out from my upper mouth, when I specifically said I want my mouth broadened. It was still very much concave when I had them taken off and my bottom teeth are still a mess. I’ve had veneers on but my back teeth are still shadowed. You can probably see 6 teeth at the most and my teeth are still very small even with the veneers. I am very self conscious and I still hate having pictures. Is there anything that can be done?

I Need To Have The Gap Between My Front Teeth Closed. Would Invisalign Clear Aligners Work For This?

Thursday, July 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I am 20 years old and I have a gap in my front teeth. How long would it take to close this and what would the prices come to? I’ve had several appointments with dentists and they all say with time the gap will come together but it never does I feel really conscious because of it and I hate smiling or even talking to people. Working as a promotions seller I need to have a good smile which I definitely don’t because of the gap.
I am undecided on this treatment and mostly on the Invisalign aligners. Can you tell me the difference and which would be better and cost effective?
