I Was Told When Younger That I Would Need My Jaw Broken To Fix My Large Overbite. How Much Would It Now Cost To Fix My Smile?

Friday, October 25th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My problem is that I have a overbite and it is quite big. When I was a child I went the orthodontist and he told me it was a very big overbite and would probably need my jaw broken. My two front teeth are very prominent compared to the others. Does this mean Invisalign would not work for me? I really don’t want the metal braces! Is there any other options? Like veneers? Based on the information I have given you can you take a rough estimate on how long it would take to fix my smile?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for taking the time to listen.

Can Old Veneers Be Removed Or Filed Down? Mine Are Too Thick And Don’t Match The Rest Of My Mouth.

Thursday, October 24th, 2013
Q.

Can old veneers be removed?
Many years ago I had them fitted and they have always looked too thick. I would like to know if they can be filed down to look slimmer.

I have never had the nerves or the money to do anything about this as I used to suffer from panic attacks and could not face the thought of going to the dentist.

It would be more affordable to me if the teeth I have now could sort of be modernised, like skimmed down so I don’t look as though my teeth are so thick.

They don’t seem to suit the rest of my teeth.

At the time I paid £500 pounds for them at a dentist in Manchester.

I had the teeth done as a result of domestic violence and one tooth was chipped but the other was perfectly okay.

However the dentist said I should have the two of them done for a better result?

I would appreciate your help and guidance.

Kindest regards.

Hi, I Have A Slight Overbite And I’m Looking Into Getting It Rectified. Can I Send You Photos So You Can Assess Which Treatment Options Are Viable?

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013
Q.

Hello Mark, I have a slight under-bite and was looking in to getting it rectified. I recently visited two orthdontists, both of whom thought that though the surgery was an option, a braces program of 18 months would correct it. Just to cover all angles, can veneers give the appearance of an under-bite correction? From internet browsing it seems some say yes , and others are saying no! I’ve got some pictures I can send to you – I know a closer examination would be needed but I’m just curious at this stage of what kind of treatment options are available to me! Many thanks, it would be great to hear your feedback regarding this.

I’m Considering Veneers As I Want Perfect, Pearly Whites. How Much Are They And Will They Damage My Teeth?

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, recently I have been strongly considering
porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of my teeth, but I have some questions for you. On average
how much does it cost for each veneer per tooth? Also, how much would you charge in your clinic for example, and will having them cause any damage my own teeth? This is something I would really like to have done, my teeth are not particularly in an awful condition but they are also far from perfect pearly straight whites, and I would like them to look nice and the best they can be. Thanks, I would really like to hear from you.

I Have Dental Fluorosis And Want To Know If I Am Eligible For Veneers Through The NHS.

Monday, October 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie, I have fluorosis so my teeth are patchy with white marks and some are a brown, yellow colour. When I was younger I was told that by the time I was 16 years old, I could get free help on the NHS but there has been no help to improve my teeth. Would I be a able to get veneers off the NHS as I can’t afford the whole amount to be done privately? It’s really making an impact on my social life and it’s about time I got help as I feel like I’ve suffered for long enough. Kind regards, any advice on this matter would be greatly received, I really hope you can help.

After Doing Some Research On Veneers, I Want To Know If They Will Look Too Bulky?

Thursday, October 10th, 2013
Q.

I chipped my front tooth that had composite bonding. I was told to get 8 veneers. I have a slight overbite. I already had the prep work done and am on my 2nd dentist. I have the temporaries and there is a large space between the back of my top teeth and the front of my bottom teeth. You can stick your fingernail under them. I have been doing research online and saw if you have an overbite the veneers will look bulky. Is it too late to get composite bonding so I won’t have to worry?

I Have Researched Different Options On How To Fix A Gummy Smile, Which Course Of Action Is Best To Consider?

Friday, October 4th, 2013
Q.

I have a gummy smile.

I am trying to find which options are best for me.

I have seen two dentists and they don’t seem to have all the facts. They only seem to think that veneers are the answer; they weren’t aware of any other options.

But from my research, there seems to be the following solutions:  Lip repositioning surgery and/or Botox, orthodontic treatment, orthognathic surgery, crown lengthening and veneers afterwards, gum removal by laser or scalpel. I am currently having orthodontic treatment, as I was led to believe this would solve the problem. The orthodontist has now told me that it can’t, so I need to seek other solutions. I have had lip repositioning surgery and Botox, but this did not work. Plus these are both temporary solutions.

What other solutions are there? Who can I consult with to get an overview of all of the options?

My Brand New Porcelain Veneers Seem To Be A Different Shade To My Other Teeth. Will My NHS Dentist Replace Them For Free?

Friday, October 4th, 2013
Q.

I had porcelain veneers fitted 1 day ago on my two front teeth only. Before having them fitted I whitened them and let them rest. Before bonding them the dentist did show me the teeth in the mirror but due to having a shaky jaw it was difficult for me to see. The veneers are an excellent shape and fit, however the colour is slightly darker than the teeth next to them. It’s hardy noticeable to anyone else but it’s all I can see, I’ve spent £1500 with the whitening and the veneers and so expected them to be perfect. I had them done as I’m getting married and wanted a better smile. The treatment was done at an NHS dentist, do you think the dentist will replace them for free? Thank you.

I’m Interested In Getting Veneers, Will Previous Root Canal Treatment Stop Me From Getting Them?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Gambroudes, I have a number of questions for you. I’m really interested in getting veneers for my four top front teeth, they are slightly crooked and the front two have been repaired before after I cracked them at work. I’ve also had root canal treatment on one of the teeth beside the front two, will any of these repairs cause me not to be able to get veneers? My teeth are currently discoloured as well and I really want nice white teeth as I’m really embarrassed by them. Do you have any idea how much it would be for these?

Thanks.

I Have Temporary Veneers That Are Affecting My Speech, Will The Permanent Veneers Resolve This Problem?

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013
Q.

I am having two veneers on my two front teeth replaced. Originally my temporary veneers were thick and too long and I had a problem with pronouncing letters and also they dug into my lower lip. The temporaries have now been thinned and shortened and that has removed the problem except that now my speech feels lazy. My priority has always been speech over look of teeth so I am concerned now there is another issue.

My dentist and I both agree that the temps are now too short and that the permanent veneers will be longer.

Do you think that the current shorter length of the temp veneers could be the cause of the lazy speech and that it will therefore resolve when the permanent ones are slightly longer? Also, to the left of front teeth I have an old bridge which is has always stuck out beyond adjacent front tooth at the bottom of the tooth. My dentist has matched the position of the veneers to this bridge which means my teeth will be positioned further forward . Do you think that having teeth in a more forward position could be the cause of lazy speech? Thanks.
