My Dentist Has Recommended Air Flow, What Is This? And How Will It Improve My Veneers?

Monday, August 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could help me with an issue? I am sixty years old and have had my front teeth done with veneers which are old now. Now I’m going off the colour of them. But having recently been made redundant I can’t afford to have them replaced .I visited my Nhs dentist today and he recommended something called Air flow. Im not sure what that is. Would that help or shall I have them removed altogether? .I really don’t know what to do .As we have moved to Devon now as my old dentist who did them is in Hampshire so I can’t go back there .And I’m now really ashamed of my teeth so I hide them a lot. Can you please advise me on the matter. I don’t know who to turn to. Thank you in advance.

Are my teeth decaying?

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010
Q.
I have these black spots in my teeth and i think they are spreading. I started seeing these spots a few months ago and just went for my regular cleaning and they were gone. But now my 5 upper teeth and 3 lower teeth(inside) have black spots. Does this mean that my teeth are decaying? How can i stop the spreading and treat these black spot? Is teeth whitening the solution?,

What would be the cost of treatment crown whitening cleaning

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009
Q.
I have been a sufferer of bulimia nervosa for about 8 years now and have suffered very severe enamel erosion as a result of it – I haven’t been to see the dentist in a long time because I know my mouth is a disaster area and until I have managed to recover I don’t want any dental work done that I might later wreck again. I imagine my mouth is full of cavities etc so that will have to be treated and I was also wondering what the cost of cosmetic treatment would be? At the very least I would guess I need crowns on upper front teeth (front 6 at least) because they are transparant at the edges – every tooth in my mouth has a greyish discolouring where my teeth are turning transparant at the tips and are mostly yellow everywhere else so I will most likely need cleaning and whitening too. Could you estimate the cost of this treatment? Is treatment even possible do you recon? Thank you for your time.
