What Kind of Treatment is Best for Closing Gaps in the Teeth?

January 23rd, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My teeth have all got gaps in between them, on both the top and bottom sets of teeth. I would like to get my teeth put together as fast as it could be. So I was wondering what treatment would I need and how much do you think it would cost? Adding to this, I was considering what type of pain would I be going through and how long would the surgery take, would it be weeks or days? Thank you, please get back to me.

Where Can I Go for Orthodontic Treatment?

January 21st, 2015
Q.

Hello. I started to visit a dentist about year and a half ago and was told I had to go into hospital to have a tooth out before starting orthodontic treatment. Since I had this tooth removed, I’ve got no further with starting treatment and have just been pushed from pillar to post, visiting 3-4 different dentists and paying for consultations and x-rays but getting no further. I’m 44 years old and don’t want go leave it too late. I really hope you can help me or advise me about where I can go. It’s been quite upsetting time as i feel no one wants too help me. I’ve got a big family wedding in two and a half years time, so I would really like to start treatment as soon as possible. Thank you.

Which Veneers Would Be Best for Me?

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.

Should I Choose Lumineers to Close Gaps?

January 13th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I have gap between my front teeth, and I am not opting for braces because I know that gaps open up after some time. I was thinking about going for veneers but keeping in mind their durability and the fact that my teeth have to be trimmed, I am thinking about going for Lumineers. I’m just worried about if they will suit me? What should I go for? Thank you, any advice would be happily received.

How Much Would It Cost to Have Veneers Placed On All My Teeth?

January 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had many problems with my teeth since I fell pregnant with my son. As time has passed, they have become worse. I have cracks in my teeth and I’m starting to get pains in my mouth. As well as having these problems, I’ve become very self-conscious. As a mother of two children, it’s hard to have my children see my teeth when I get them to look after theirs. I wondered how much it would cost to have all of my teeth veneered? Also, if you arrange any payment plans? Thank you.

Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have recently been in a car accident, and have lost two and a half teeth and chipped a fourth tooth, all at the front of my mouth. My teeth are usually in good condition but I don’t currently have a dentist. I am looking for an NHS dentist in Manchester to give me dental implants. Is this something you could help me with? If you could get back to me with some information this would great, thank you.

What is the Best Way to Restore my Lower Molars?

January 12th, 2015
Q.

Good evening Dr Hughes. I would like to get more information on dental bridges. A few weeks ago my dentist extracted two teeth on different sides of the jaw. Both teeth were in the same place, just different side of the mouth, the lower jaw molars.What is the best way to restore them? Would it be bridges or something else? My other teeth are healthy, but it’s getting difficult to chew any solid food.. What are the prices of dental bridge and how long does this procedure last? Thank you.

What is the Quickest and Most Affordable Way to Straighten Teeth?

January 12th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. My smile makes me look goofy. My two front teeth are big compared to the rest and it makes me feel horrible. I wouldn’t be able to pay for everything all at once, and would need some help with finance to pay out of my wages each month. I want my teeth at the top to be put back and in line with my bottom teeth, and for my teeth to be straightened out in the quickest and most affordable way. I am only 21. What would be my best option? Thank you for your help.

Can Bridges be Made from Anything Other Than Metal?

January 9th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My 15 year old son has just had bridges fitted for two missing teeth either side of front two teeth. He has had two years with braces to get his teeth into the right position for this treatment. Unfortunately, the metal that is now behind his two front teeth makes his teeth look grey, the colour of the metal. Could he have had the bridge made of anything other than metal that wouldn’t show through the teeth, and is it too late to change this?
Thank you.

What is the Procedure for Adjusting Dental Implants?

January 8th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have a implant that I have had for 17 years, I had it placed when I was 16 to replace a missing tooth. I’m not happy with it, as the tooth begins much higher up then the rest of my teeth. This results in the tooth reaching to half way down the rest of my teeth, and it just looks really strange, almost as if I have a chipped tooth. It is making me really conscious about smiling as it is next to my front teeth and always on show. What would be the procedure to get this fixed? Could it even be fixed, and what would the cost be?

Thank you very much!
