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?

Could I Pay For Veneers With a Monthly Credit Scheme?

Tuesday, 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.

How Much Does Composite Bonding Cost?

Monday, June 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I want to know how much it would be to get my teeth done by doing composite bonding. I have what you call baby adult teeth that have really effected me throughout my life. I have also got gaps at the bottom and also the top. I am very self conscious and I rarely smile which I hate as I would love to have lovely pearly whites that I could feel confident with. But the problem is I am 19 and now have to pay for treatment and I do have a job but only an apprenticeship which pays £2.73 an hour and I really want them done and want to know roughly how much it would cost.

How Can I Get My Composite Build Up Redone?

Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Q.

I had a composite build up done on my front four teeth two years ago. The acid erosion issue was with the front two only but the dentist suggested to get the front four done to achieve symmetry etc. Now I need to get the treatment redone because of staining. Is it possible for me to get the composite build up/composite veneer done on the front two only and have the composite removed from the side ones? Thanks.

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.

Which Treatment Will Close the Gaps in my Teeth?

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I’m a 17 year old girl and I have about 5 or 6 gaps on my top teeth as well as on the bottom set. I wanted to know the best treatment to solve them. Some of my teeth on the top set are weirdly shaped so I don’t think braces will solve it. In terms of size I can fit my tongue between all the gaps on the top set. Please help me, I want to become a dental therapist/hygienist and I want to have the best teeth possible. Thank you.

What’s the Most Natural, Non-Invasive Way to Close a Gap Between the Teeth?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I had braces before, but had them removed. During my treatment, my dentist had stripped between my from front two teeth as it was bigger than the next tooth. But after the removal, we felt that although the gap was filled, the bonding between the teeth is still not complete. I mean there is a small surface gap still visible.  I am worried about it and want to fix it in the most natural, non-invasive way possible. Kindly help, thank you.

I Had My Veneers Filed Down But Now They Are Too Small. Would Cosmetic Bonding Help In This Case?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Gambroudes, I recently got composite veneers, 8 top and 8 bottom. However when I first saw them I thought they were two long and bulky so I asked to get them shaved down a bit. But now that I’ve had them I feel as if they are too short as I have quite big lips and unless I am smiling really big you can’t really notice that I have even had my teeth done. I’m regretting my decision to have them shaved down. Is there anyway I can go back and add more composite bonding to make them a tiny bit longer in length? Or what are my other options? I’m really unhappy and am sad everytime I look at them. Kind regards.

Can I Reduce The Size Of My Front Teeth By Clipping Them Down Or By Some Other Means?

Thursday, August 7th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. My question is: Can we reduce the size of the front teeth by clipping them down or some other means? My age is 23 years. At this age is there any possibility of reduction in size of teeth? What are the chances of reduction of big front teeth at this age? What is the criteria and deciding factors for reducing the front teeth size? Are there any long term effects of this treatment? I would really like to reduce the size of my front teeth and I would like your advice. Thank you for your time.

I Have Veneers Which Keep Breaking Off And I Have No Confidence In My Dentist. Please Can You Advise Me?

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes. I have had 6 veneers across the top row of my teeth. They have constantly broken off within one year, I had to pay for a second set – the dentist coolly said that he was a bad technician and that was all. I still had to pay full price for another set. I saw another dentist for a second opinion who said far too much of my original tooth had been removed. I then started having throbbing pain in my veneered teeth, the dentist said that I now need to have root fillings under all of them. I know that with gum shrinkage there will be gaps at the top of the teeth, but mine are black and ugly. I complained and she filled them with composite that doesn’t match my veneers. I have no confidence at all in my dentist. Another veneer broke off last night. I do not want to go back. On top of all this, she knew that I have severe Sjogren’s syndrome, and I have read since that I should have never had them done. Please can you advise me?
Many thanks.
