I Have Recently Had Six Veneers Fitted. I Have A Black Line Appearing At The Bottom Of Two Veneers. How Can I Get Rid Of This?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014
Q.

Hiya. I’ve just had veneers done, six at the top, I’ve only had them done recently and already I have a black line appearing at the bottom of two of the veneers. I’ve tried brushing it away but it won’t go. I also feel my veneers are not very secure and could fall out at any time. I was made aware that this was a good cosmetic dentist. I am beginning to think that this is not the case.
Could you help to tell me what the black lines are and what I should do to be rid please?
Also how long should the veneers be sensitive for as my still feel very sensitive?

Thank you.

I Had A Bad Experience With Needles When I Was Young And I Haven’t Been Back Since. Are There Any Other Options For Phobia Patients?

Friday, July 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have not been near a dentist for over 20 years as when I was younger had a terrible experience with a certain needle in my gum. As I remember they made a right mess from and I have never forgotten this. I know I need quite a lot of work doing being 43, but I cannot bear the thought of that needle going into my gum and I’m not sure how I would react. Are there other options out there? I do not have any issues with needles elsewhere just in my mouth, your advise would be helpful. Thanks.

I’ve Been Told That I Have To Get Used To My Bulky Crown. Could You Tell Me If This Is Correct Or Not?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Good evening Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me determine whether I’ve had bad dental treatment or not? About 3 months ago I’ve had a crown placed on my upper front tooth. The temporary crown was fantastic and matched it well, unfortunately the permanent one is noticeably larger than the other teeth and it sticks out. My dentist told me it’s because my teeth are crowded and that I’ll get used to it.
I really disagree with him and have tried to get used to it but to no avail. Is it possible for me to send a picture to you to see if my dentist is trying to cover up bad dental work please? Many thanks.

I Had To Make A Complain About An Ill Fitting Plate A Dentist Gave Me. Do You Know How Much It Will Cost To Fix This?

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I recently had a cap on a plinth removed which was replaced by an ill fitting plate that fits uncomfortably in the roof of my mouth. This makes it hard to actually speak clearly. I have a large gap the size of two teeth at the top which is really embarrassing. Please can you supply a solution and also an approximate cost of what it would be to fix this? I have made a complaint against the dentist to the dental regulator. This was on advice from another dentist who told me it was the worst piece of dentistry he has seen. I look forward to your reply. Thank you for your time.

I Had A Root Canal Done 10 Weeks Ago And I’ve Had To Go Back So Many Times. I Don’t Know What To Do?

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013
Q.

I hope you can help me. I had root canal done on my front tooth 10 weeks ago now, I’ve been back so many times, the tooth has been filled so many times the bottom of my tooth is see through. The other day I was given a mouthwash by the filling and it is looking sore and 24 hours later I’m still in pain.  I have had three lots of antibiotics before they started filing the tooth and so much filing has been done that my mouth does not feel the same. The tooth hurts so much, I don’t know what to do any more, some times my ears hurt. When the root canal was having it proper filling put it, I was told I would not need to be numbed up as it was all dead, when something was put into the hole I nearly hit the roof, I never felt so much pain which lasted for a couple of minutes, Is this right what they are doing?

Hi, I Had An Upper Denture Made By The NHS But It Doesn’t Fit Well. Should I Make A Complaint?

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Hussein, I had a upper denture made with the NHS about 2 months ago and to be honest it has never fitted very well at all. I only need to open my mouth at it falls out! My dentist claims I can’t get enough suction and has advised me to use an adhesive, I think she has just made a bad impression and is just fobbing me off. Surely a new denture should be tight. I don’t really want to make an official complaint but am getting to the point here that I may have to. I’m distressed about this and really would like your advice.

My Husband Has Suffered Bad Dentistry And Has Lost Teeth As A Result. Would He Be A Suitable Candidate For Implants?

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
Q.

My husband is 55 and has had very bad experiences with dentists resulting over time in his teeth being removed, bad cosmetic dentistry etc. The result is that he has very few teeth of his own left and a variety of bad caps/coverings etc. Before that he had a lovely smile and is now very self conscious and is desperate to get his smile back, but is very nervous about going to the dentist and ashamed about the condition of his teeth. What treatments would be available to him? Would he be a suitable candidate for implants? If so what is the price range for this work?
Thank you.

I’m Not Happy With My New Implants As They Don’t Match Up Properly. What Can I Do About These?

Thursday, November 7th, 2013
Q.

I have been going through the process of preparing my mouth for two lateral incisor implants for over 3 years. Finally yesterday, my “teeth” were ready to be placed. I was so excited, because I have had holes in my mouth for almost 4 years now. When my dentist handed me the mirror, I was completely disappointed. The teeth are too small, and they do not sit on my gums. Which makes it look like I am still wearing the retainer I had to fill in the spaces, which was way too small. The colouring isn’t right either. I am very very disappointed and angry, because I’ve waited so long. I am 19, and have hated my teeth my whole life, and now after all that work, I still hate them. What can I do about these?

Hi Mark, Could You Advise Me On Any Clinics Which Deal With Single Tooth Repair?

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013
Q.

Dear Mark. I broke a corner of right front tooth when I was a child, it was very unnoticeable. Then when I was 22 I decided to repair it. I went to a private dentist. Who told me that if she put filling on the corner it would come off, so she told me of another way of repairing it. She said it would be a proper repair. Unfortunately, she removed nearly half of the visible part of my tooth, then made a hole in the root canal and put a metal peg in it and then created a new tooth. It was thicker and after few weeks it got darker. I came back and ask her to do anything about it, but she only said it changed colour because its dead now. Later it had been redone by other dentist, the peg had to be removed but it’s never been the same as my left tooth. Since then I do not like to picture myself with a full smile.
I so much want to have it done with Harley Street Dental Clinic, but your receptionist said that you do not deal with single tooth repair unfortunately.
I totally agree that this work should be done with by very experienced and very high quality cosmetic dentist. Would you be so kind as to advise me?
Is there are any chance to have it done with you in Harley Street Dental Clinic?

I Have Had Bad Root Canal Treatment Recently, But My Current Clinic Can’t Fix My Problem. How Much Would You Estimate To Fix A Problem Such As?

Monday, October 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Riten. What I want to discuss is that I have had bad dentistry of a root treatment that has been covered by a porcelain crown. This was done around one year ago and I have had quite a few problems with it since this was done, I have now gone to another dentist who has discovered this but is unable to do the treatment as they do not have a microscope available.
Please would you give me a rough estimate of what it would cost to correct this problem and any further advice in correcting this problem. Many thanks,
I really hope you can help me with this.
