Could You Offer Me Any Advice? I Find It Hard To Talk To People As I’m Embarrassed Over My Missing Teeth.

July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Riten. I have lots of broken teeth at the back and some are missing. I have not gone to the dentist for years as I’m so embarrassed about them. They started getting bad after I had my first child I now have 6 children. I have been in a relationship for a few years and I have never kissed him, also I don’t really talk to people as I don’t want them to see my teeth. When I do have to talk to people I put my head down. I’m 35 years old. I’m so depressed and down and to be honest I find it hard to be happy any more. I don’t know what to do. Could you offer any advice?

My Teeth Seem To Be Thinning. Is There Another Treatment Out There Which Is Less Invasive Then Dental Veneers?

July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. My teeth seem to be thinning a little bit, I have a baby tooth due to the fact my adult tooth has grown in sideways in my gum and I would like them to be whiter. I have considered veneers before but the idea of shaving down my teeth scares me too much. I was wondering if there would be some sort of alternative that would not damage my own teeth so much? Perhaps something that can just be put over the top of them? If so can you provide an approximate price? Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.

Hello. My Veneers Are On Coming To Their End. Could I Get Dentures Instead? Would This Be A Better Solution?

July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve had veneers for over 8 years now and my dentist said they are coming to the end. They are on the top, my bottom ones are still real.

To be honest, I regret getting these veneers. Several have come off over the years, which has been distressing. I don’t want to have to spend so much money to replace them. I want to know if there is a cheaper alternative to replacing the veneers?

Dentures? Or something like that. Can I get false teeth to just sit on top of the old ones? I don’t mind if I have to take them out to eat. There is still some of the original enamel on all my top set of teeth, from where it was filed down to fit the veneers. Thanks.

I Am Scared Of The Dentist And I Don’t Want People Judging Me. Is It Possible To Get Knocked Out Throughout The Treatment?

July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have really bad toothache, but I am scared of dentist from when I was little through a bad experience. I have been to ashamed to go as I have several chipped teeth and now they look really bad. I don’t want people judging me. I have left it them to go rotten but I must have some of the the roots left in my gums. I am very wary of a male dentist going near me as well, I just want nice teeth. If I could be knocked out and wake up with nice teeth that would be my ideal dream. Is this possible? Any advice would help me greatly. Thank you.

My Veneer Has Fallen Off On The First Day. I’m At A Loss. Could You Help Me?

July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hiya,
I’ve only had veneers for one day and already one has fell out. I rang my dentist and was instructed to put it back on with clear nail polish.
Although I have done this I am still very worried it will fall off. I am not eating hardly anything due to this. I am very worried the other veneers will fall off soon as I feel the glue is disappearing. I am not sure if this me just thinking this up in my head or it is actually happening.
Is there anything I can do to make me feel more secure with my veneers? What foods do you recommend I should eat, as I am at a loss? Please could you help. Thanks.

Could You Tell Me Whether My Son’s Orthodontist Has Given The Right Course Of Action?

July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello. My 14 year old son has a lot of overcrowding, which requires 3 teeth removed, his upper k9 teeth are very high up in the gums, and to complicate things further, he has one upper front tooth missing and currently wears a denture plate. His orthodontist has suggested braces for 2 and a half years, and pulling the teeth next to his missing tooth into the gap, and after braces are off capping the tooth that was next to the missing front tooth to make it look like a front tooth, and capping the k9 to make it look like the tooth that has become the front tooth, but doing this will leave my son unable to wear a denture and live with a gap and then a small tooth in the gap until its capped after the 2 and a half years, is this the only way to deal with this problem? Could braces not be used to straighten the teeth but leave a gap for him to continue to wear a denture and then at the end of the treatment to straighten, the denture be replaced by an implant? My son is devastated by the prospect of revealing that he has a false tooth to his peers. Regards.

Is It Possible To Pay For Invisalign Treatment Over Instalments? My Smile Is Overcrowded And Crooked.

July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have pretty bad crooked teeth and I feel invisalign is a good choice to sort them out. The cost is a bit dear for me. Is it possible to pay in instalments over a period of time? Where could I go to arrange an appointment to get invisalign and how much is it for an appointment? Would I have to pay just for a first time check up? My teeth are over crowded and crooked, it’s not so much the bottom teeth it’s the top, the front 6 teeth and the front 2 are leaning towards the left. Also the 2 small teeth on each side aren’t straight and one is fully turned at a 90 degree angle. The 2 beside them are towards the top of my gums like fangs. Please help me on this. I dislike my teeth and avoid smiling due to how they look and need expert opinions and guidance.

Is It Possible To Wear The Home Tooth Whitening Kits During The Day? I Have Problems Wearing My Trays During The Day.

July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I am in my sixties and have had Zoom done with no noticeable results. I would not be happy with very white teeth, so my question is: is it possible to use Enlighten just in my home to my desired level of whiteness? I have problems wearing my trays at night, so could I do it for just an hour during the day?

If this is not possible, in your opinion, what is the best at home bleaching product for using during the day please? Thank you.

Is There Any Way I Can Reverse The Gum Disease Process? I Have Bone Recession At The Back Of My Mouth.

July 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I help you can help me, I have been told by my periodontist that I have the second stage of gum disease and need to have 6 molar teeth extracted, of which, one is loose. There is also bone recession at the back of my mouth.
I would like to know if there is any way that my teeth can be saved by closing the pockets or reattaching the gums to the teeth, or by putting some sort of antibacterial gel around the teeth to reverse the process. Is this possible? Thank you for your time.

Is There Any Way I Can Get Dental Help For My Boyfriend Without It Breaking The Bank?

July 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have been up for a few hours such searching the internet looking for ways to get low cost dental care for my fianc√©. His teeth are so bad and his breath is worse. He wasn’t taught properly about hygiene so they are not taken care of.  I want to marry him when his confidence is high. I want to be able to kiss him finally and not have to stop him to go rinse with mouthwash, even then it doesn’t always work. Something is wrong and he needs help. Financially we can’t swing the cost. Do you have any advice for us? I don’t want to lose him, but I am having a harder time getting past the teeth. Especially when we get married. His teeth should match his awesome personality. Thanks.
