How Much Would a Temporary Snap-on-Smile Cost?

Thursday, May 26th, 2016
Q.

Hi there. I am looking for a temporary snap-on-smile for my upper teeth, in particular whereby I only have 2 full teeth left in the front. The rest are stubs (5), including both incisors. I will eventually be going down the dental implant route therefore I don’t want to spend £100s or even £1000s on a cosmetic dental plan. Looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience! By the way, the pull-down gives me a list of 7 dental doctors and I’d like to chat/speak with one most knowledgeable on this subject…thanking you!

How Much Would it Cost to Straighten Just One Tooth?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I was just wondering how much it would cost for me to straighten just one tooth at the front of my mouth? It just needs to be pulled forward because it has been knocked back and it looks terrible when I smile. I do have a dentist that I see regularly, but because I’m on benefits he will only do the treatment that he thinks is really needed. He says this but I feel like this is really needed, it’s knocking all my confidence and I hate smiling just because of this one tooth please could you help me understand what I’ll need doing to bring this tooth forward, and how much it will cost? Thank you.

I Have A Small Gap Between My Two Front Teeth. How Much Would This Cost To Amend With Teeth Bonding?

Thursday, June 19th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am a student which means money is tight, therefore I want to know more about costing. I have a rather small gap between my front two teeth around 1mm wide, and the rest of my teeth are ‘perfectly’ aligned and straight therefore I feel no point opting for braces but it is something on my face which I very much dislike. Consequently I was wondering how much roughly this will cost to amend with teeth bonding?
Thank you for your time!

I Have A Couple Of Chipped Teeth From Playing Rugby But I’m Worried It Could Cost Upward Of Twenty Thousand To Get The Smile I Used To Have?

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013
Q.

I chipped my front four teeth in rugby and apparently I brushed my teeth too hard as a child, my teeth are perfectly straight, I just want to fix the chips and nicks in my front four teeth and whiten them all so I can have the smile I used to have and feel confident again, how much do you think it will cost, it’s all relatively minor work, and then some whitening because my teeth are frustratingly resistant to home whitening, my teeth were perfect until I banged them up playing sports now the front four are chipped, I was worried when I saw these 20,000 dollar price-tags but my local dentist says there is really nothing he can do for me, any information or advice?

My Missing Teeth Are Knocking My Confidence, Which Treatment Option Would Be Right For Me?

Friday, August 2nd, 2013
Q.

I have upper left 5 missing and upper right 5,6,7,8 missing (hope I have got that right). I want to have these gaps filled but what is my best options other than implants? which I can not afford, quoted £4,500 because I need bone graft and sinus pocket lift etc. Chrome metal partial denture but I don’t like the clips, they will show when I smile and last I have been quoted £2,000 for bridges which I can not afford either. I would appreciate any help whatsoever that you can give me with this. It is an issue which has been playing on my mind for quite sometime now and it is knocking my confidence. Any response would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Can You Get Mini Implants, If So How Much Are They?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013
Q.

Can you tell me do you do the mini implants , as my mother is 80yrs old, and I would like to know for 4-6 of this mini implants’ how much would they cost? Also since I am assuming that they could be fairly expensive so can I have their cost as a one off and if on finanace how much would it cost per month?
They would be the back teeth of the upper jaw, molars I think. Also if they are cost effective we would think of having more added in the future so it could be beneficial for them to be so. Also I am slightly unfamiliar with them so would like to know about general care duties needed to ensure that they last or that they don’t come out or wear down and stuff you know, for example would they have to be taken out when goes to bed? or can she sleep with them in? and can she brush her teeth as normal without changing anything? Thank you.

I Had One Of Two Porcelain Veneers Chipped And Replaced But Now They Don’t Match, What Are My Options?

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr I have two porcelain veneers on my front teeth. One veneer chipped and I had to have it replaced.
The dentist tried to convince me to have two replaced so they matched, but I just wanted one.
He said he was using the best lab, and he sent my old veneer to the lab so they could match it. He said they use U.V light etc.
As someone who is not a dentist or lab worker, i can see it is clearly darker than the other old veneer.
The dentist is more or less saying its normal etc, but I cant see why the lab would send out work that any idiot can see does not match the veneer they we’re sent.
Even the two old veneers we’re as good as a perfect match for my existing teeth, and the lab never saw them, and they could not get a match for something they did see…..
I feel that my dentist just gave allot of talk to make me think I had as good as it gets.
For £600 I feel I should expect at least a hardily noticeable.
difference.
He showed me how it looked before he stuck it into position, but did not offer me a mirror after it was in position.
I just think its all a bit unacceptable, but I would like to know if I have a case to ask for it to be changed?……
I would appreciate any help you could give me.

Thanks very much.

I Believe My Orthodontist Removed Teeth Incorrectly, Can I Take Any Action?

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Q.

Please Help! I need your advice on what to do. After a long 3 yrs, I finally had my braces removed. I had an over-bite & crowding on top and only crowding on the bottom. Due to this, I had 2-4 molar extractions & now I have spacings in between my teeth(s)! As soon as they were off, I told my ortho about the spacings & was told that if i wear my retainers they would close (It has now been 8 months!!!). I rescheduled an app. to see them & was told that I needed bondings because my teeth(s) were in in their correct position & they couldn’t be moved any closer. So I thought it was fine, I’ll get the work done but to only find out that it had to be paid out of my pocket! Since they were highly recommended, I sincerely trusted them & never questioned their judgement. I’m no expert but I believe that they shouldn’t have extracted anything & if they would’ve known better, they should’ve known that I would have spacing issues from the very beginning (I read that they can actually measure/calculate the size of your teeths to determine that this won’t happen). Now I’m worried that I spent all that money for nothing & I’m gonna have to live with the ugly spacings because of their mistakes.
