Do Flexible Braces Cause Speech Problems?

April 19th, 2016
Q.

I wear NHS partial dentures but I find when I talk I sound weird and people cannot understand me very well, they say I’m swallowing my words. Because of this, I only wear my dentures occasionally. I have heard of flexible dentures being more natural. If I wear them would my speech be normal like my usual voice, or would I have the same problem? Also, because my speech sounds funny to me and others I always feel self conscious of getting into any conversations. I am not into implants as I am terrified of the dentist as it is and also I’m going to be 65 yrs old soon and I would rather save what little money I have towards my retirement.

What is the Cheapest Way to Restore my Whole Mouth?

April 19th, 2016
Q.

I have been offered the All-on-4 treatment for £5500 as I have no teeth in the upper jaw. It is in the UK in Luton. Is this a good price and can this practice do it for the said price? I also only have 4 teeth in the lower jaw.The remaining teeth are not that good but they are strong. Could you please give me your expert advice on the cheapest way to restore my whole mouth? I am even willing to let postgraduate students to do some of the work if it would help both parties to achieve their full potential. Thanks.

Can Dentures be Produced using iTero?

April 19th, 2016
Q.

Can full dentures be produced using the iTero for someone who already has a full set of dentures? All I see on various websites is the Wand being used on patients who have their own natural teeth. I am desperate for new dentures but can’t face having the traditional method of impressions as last time I had them done I almost choked and it has put me off completely. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

How Much Would it Cost to Fix My Discoloured Tooth?

February 29th, 2016
Q.

Hiya, I was just wondering how much it would cost as my front tooth is black and I need it fixing. it’s so embarrassing, I don’t go out because I feel everyone is staring at it. I was just wandering how much it would be to be filled and made the same colour as my other teeth? Please reply a price as it’s urgent, I’m losing everyone because I won’t go out because I’m worried of people laughing at my teeth. Please help me fix my teeth with some advice and a price as this is very upsetting for me and needs sorting as soon as possible.

Where Can I Get Prosthetic Teeth?

December 10th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I cannot get registered with a dentist and haven’t for several years. I have no teeth and I need to have some false ones but I can’t seem to find a dentist to help me. Please, you are my last resort. How can I get some false teeth?  I have tried everywhere in Shrewsbury but no one is taking on new patients. I cant eat my favourite foods because I cant chew things like steak or liver or pork chops, I feel like crying.

My Tooth is Still Discoloured After Internal Whitening. What Can Be Done?

November 27th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I had root canal a year or so ago, and my tooth has been discoloured. I have had internal whitening which has lightened the overall colour of the tooth, however I have 3 very distributive black lines on my tooth and my dentist says there is nothing else he can do. But he is thinking from a dental perspective not a cosmetic, as to me my tooth is still discoloured and makes me very self conscious as it’s my front tooth. Does this sound like something that can be sorted?

Thank you.

Could I Pay For Veneers With a Monthly Credit Scheme?

November 3rd, 2015
Q.

Hi, I am 50 years old and have nice looking teeth but due to my gums
receding I am starting to lose my teeth. I have 2 teeth near the front of my mouth that need to be removed. They are painful and really loose. I would like to have veneers. I no longer work because of health reasons and my monthly benefit is barely enough to live on. If I have veneers how much would they be and would I be able to pay for them with a monthly credit scheme? Also, do you know of any cheaper option? I know I am limited because I will have no more teeth on that side of my mouth when the 2 teeth next to each other come out.

Is Teeth Whitening That Uses Peroxide Safe?

October 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello there. I would like to whiten my teeth, which are quite discoloured. I do not smoke so I guess it’s age and tea drinking mainly! (I am 65yrs old). Most dentists use peroxide based systems,but some people say these damage the teeth enamel. Are these chemicals safe to use or will they possibly damage the enamel in the long term? There seem to be some articles that suggest peroxide should not be used. Thank you.

Will a Single Veneer Improve My Smile?

October 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have one tooth on the top set that is set back from the other front two teeth, making it look like a really small tooth spot and when I have pictures taken, on one side it can look like the tooth is missing all together. It really is knocking my confidence. I can’t smile properly without being nervous. I have seen pictures of other patients with teeth worse than mine and they have veneers. Will a single veneer sort this out? Thank you.
