How Much Would It Cost for my Son to Have All His Teeth Removed?

February 20th, 2015
Q.

Hello. My son has very bad teeth so has to have all of them out, but he lost bone in an accident too. So roughly how much would it cost for that and how long would it take? He’s only 17 but I know I have to wait until he is 20 to have it done, would I be able to pay in installments or pay all at once? So could you send me a breakdown or payment from each teeth and bone graft? He’s in a lot of pain so they are looking to see if he has got gum problems too. If so, would that be a problem too? Thank you.

What Treatment is Best for Overlapping Teeth?

February 20th, 2015
Q.

Hey there,

I’m looking into getting my teeth fixed. I have two pushed out canines, which due to them being pushed out, has ultimately left the remaining teeth being pushed to the side. One of my two main teeth is now overlapping the other. The bottom teeth are not great but i am less bothered by those as I am the top teeth. I’m looking for the fastest and most effective way of getting this sorted avoiding standard metal braces across the front of me teeth.
Can you help?

All the best, thanks.

What Are The Payment Options for a Smile Makeover?

February 20th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I would like to know payment options to get a smile makeover. I absolutely hate my teeth. They are crooked, stained and decaying. I’m only 22 years old and it is really affecting my social life and my relationships. I have no confidence in myself and feel very self conscious. It would be a dream come true for me to get my teeth fixed. As a mother of 3 I could not afford to pay a lump sum. Is there any other payment options I could consider? Please help me out! Thanks.

Which is Better: Zoom! or Enlighten Whitening?

February 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello! Just a quick question about 2 tooth whitening systems. Now my dentist is about to whiten my teeth, and he uses the Philips Zoom! Nite White system. However, I am questioning whether this system is as good as the Enlighten Deep Bleaching system. I was wondering if you could give me the ins and outs of both, as although I do trust my dentist, I accept that he may be biased towards the system he uses. Any advice on these 2 systems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How Much Would a Full Set of New Teeth Cost?

February 19th, 2015
Q.

Hi there, please help. Could I have a rough estimate for a full set of new teeth top and bottom please? My teeth are all crooked and stained. I would love a whole new smile as I am very self conscious about my mouth and embarrassed to open my mouth.   Kind regards, thank you.

My Teeth are Worn Down and Jagged. How Can They be Treated?

February 18th, 2015
Q.

Hi there. I would like to ask you a question. My teeth are quite bad I think. I haven’t brushed them for years, because of problems in my life. Over the years I’ve drank lots of fruit juices, smoked, among others. My teeth now are really small, yellow, and a bit jagged. They are wearing away. I think it’s down to acid erosion. But can you tell me the cost of fixing them? Could you tell me if there is a cheaper version, and what my opinions are? And could you tell me, if I got it done, is there away of paying in installments? Thank you.

Can I Have My Teeth Corrected Without Extraction?

February 18th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have just finished my forth session of deep cleaning because I have bad bone loss, due to this my front teeth have changed shape. The tooth next to my front tooth has turned and left a big gap. The dentist I’m with says the only two options I have are a plate with a single tooth on or a bridge, but again the tooth will still be pulled until the bridge can be fitted. Is there a way of having a veneer, cap or crown on the tooth rather than it be pulled? I do not want a plate. Thank you.

Can My Protruding Teeth be Treated Without Braces?

February 17th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I am a 20 year old girl. My front top four teeth face outward and slanted. They are bigger than usual teeth and also have no gap between them. I cannot close my mouth completely when I smile. My pictures do not look good because of this. Is there any dental procedure to make them right so that my front teeth can face inward and I can smile properly? It should be without the involvement of braces and less expensive. If so then please answer my question. Thank you.

Why Does My Tooth Have Dark Patches On It?

February 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My dentist drilled into my front tooth and cleaned it and got rid of the decay. Then she put a temporary filling in which is a different colour to the rest of the tooth, but part of the tooth at the top has still got a dark patch on it and also a little on one side. Will she remove those now so it’s all one colour? And if she does why didn’t she do it the first time? I am going back next week so she can finish it off and also take a mould for a crown. Thank you.

How Can I Get Jaw Surgery in the UK?

February 16th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have a class 3 underbite and was evaluated to have jaw surgery years ago in my country. I had braces on and regular visits for 6 months. Then I moved, and tried to find a dentist that could carry on the treatment but couldn’t find any. So since I settled in the UK 3 years ago, I found out that it was very difficult to get the jaw surgery done on the NHS. I got my braces removed and gave up for some time, but I feel so over-conscious about the problem that I cant even smile when taking pictures. The fact that people still make fun of my problem affects me sometimes. I would like to do something about it.
Regards.
