Can I Get Dental Bonding on the NHS?

Thursday, August 4th, 2016
Q.

Hello, it has been around 3-4 years since I had my braces removed. During the time I had braces, one of my front teeth had chipped slightly, however, despite this being visibly apparent to both my regular dentist and orthodontist, nothing was done about it. Now over the past few months, this tooth seems to have chipped even more. My question is, since I am under 18 and in full time education, can this tooth be bonded for free under the NHS? And also, would this then affect my retainers if my tooth is able to be bonded?

How Can I Treat Chipped and Discoloured Teeth Without Using Replacements or Veneers?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I’ve had braces and my teeth are straight, but I chips in a few of my front teeth. I also have some discolouration and towards the end of the tooth it’s almost transparent, I think this may be due to enamel wear as I drink a lot of Coke. I’m looking to get cosmetic dentistry to fix this, but what would be the best option for me to get this fixed without getting veneers or completely replacing the tooth? Thank you.

Can Teeth be Re-Shaped?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have chipped teeth from an injury, but can teeth be shaped? It is only the tips that need to be filed and whitened.
So my teeth are strong and I do not want veneers, just my shaped and made very white. I want a consultation and to avoid veneers. There is a tooth that would require implants because it broke in half. How much would this cost? I would like great smile, thank you.

I Have Chipped and Broken Teeth. What Can Be Done?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have lost one wisdom tooth and another is half broken. Most of my teeth are chipping off and they have holes in them. My dentist has given me a special toothpaste to use but there’s been no improvement since I started using that and all he does with the the second chipped wisdom tooth is fill it with a white paste. I’m only 34 years old and I don’t know what to do, but what can you tell me about this? What is wrong and how can I repair them? Also, how much will it cost please? This is so depressing, I don’t know what to do. Please help and give me some advice. Thank you in advance.

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

Wednesday, 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.

Could I Have A Regular NHS Dentist For My General Check-Ups And Go Private For Veneers?

Friday, July 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi there – I’m not currently a private or registered NHS patient. I’m looking to have my top front teeth either straightened or taken out and veneers put in. I also need a filling or two. My question is, is it best to register somewhere else as an NHS patient regarding fillings & then have the veneers done separately to save on cost? On the top front teeth I have a front one and an incisor which cross over slightly and the front tooth is shortened and chipped. Thanks.

I Had My Teeth Shortened As They Were Chipped. Now I Can’t Make Certain Sounds, Can You Help Me?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I have had my teeth trimmed quite a bit due to being chipped. I now feel uncomfortable whenever I have to make a th sound. Is that due to trimming? And I just can’t remember how I used to do it. Before having them trimmed I used to make my tongue hit the back of my tongue mostly. With the shorten teeth it automatically wants to go underneath the teeth which doesn’t feel good. Do you have any tips for getting speech back after dental treatment? It’s really bugging me. Thanks.

Hi Mark, I’d Like To Know If I Could Have Lumineers On Only The Teeth That Show?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I wonder if you could give me some advice. I am currently thinking about having Lumineers on my top teeth as I feel they are too small, they are also chipped and yellow, plus, I have ground my two front teeth down a little. Could I have 8 done as the rest do not show? Also I feel my top palette is too narrow (I had my fangs removed as a teenager as my dentist said their wasn’t enough room in my mouth), would Lumineers go anyway to correct this? Thank you for your response in advance.

Is There Any Chance The Adhesive Glue From My Braces Could Cause My Teeth To Chip?

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I brush my teeth twice a day as usual yet over last few years my teeth seem to chip and are becoming thinner. My own dentist said it’s down to personal care. What can I do? Also two of my teeth have been removed due to breaking and I feel like at any time another could break as they look so thin. During my last check up they mentioned I have glue on my teeth from when I had braces at 12/13 years old and that there has been damage around the glue. I feel like I’m getting no answers and that I’ll lose all my teeth if nothing is done.
