I Have A Crooked Front Tooth And I’d Like To Know What The Best Treatment Would Be In Terms Of Cost And Longevity?

Thursday, April 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am 39 years old and I have crooked front tooth which I believe has become more prominent over the last few years. Sometimes it’s feels a little uncomfortable. I asked my own dentist about options privately though as they are the NHS were very dismissive of my concerns. I have read about a few options however which would be a better option given age, longevity of the treatment and cost?

Your advice and suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

I Don’t Want Metal Braces But I Want To Sort My Teeth Out Because It’s Depressing Me, What Else Can Be Done?

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013
Q.

I am a 29 year old female that has bad insecurities and suffer with depression due to the way my teeth are. I have two crooked teeth, and one is at the front and one is my fang. I’m a single mother of two and I really need them fixing the best and cheapest way possible. Please can you help me? I work in an office and are around people daily so metal braces are definitely a no in my book! I’m open to anything else that may help me I constantly have my hand over my face when I laugh and I hardly smile or have pics taken because of these dreadful teeth. I visit the dentist every six months so my teeth are in good condition I just want them straight. I hope you can help me as it really gets me down, kind regards.

My Teeth Aren’t Straight. What Should I Do?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Andrew Moore,  I hope I have come to the right place. My teeth are slightly not straight, not severely crooked but enough for it to be noticeable. It is mainly my front tooth thats out of line and its playing on my mind a lot and I am getting really self conscious about it I suppose. I don’t particularly like to go dentist often and try and avoid it as long as possible. I tend to not smile that much. What would you recommend doing for my teeth and would you also advise on the possible cost of such a treatment. Thank you very much,  any advice would really help if you could just email me back when possible, it would be much appreciated. I look forward to your response, Thank you

My dental problems have caused my jaw to recede, what should I do?

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012
Q.

My situation:

I’m 27 and I have …
Crooked front teeth.
A fairly significantly inward leaning lower left canine.
Deep poorly drilled, poorly filled cavities on nearly all rear 8 molars.
An untreated cavity on my lower left premolar.
Have never had my wisdom teeth removed – but never had a dentist cite them as problematic.
My teeth are tightly packed with rear molars being pushed inward, and a front tooth being pushed outwards. Making my palette feel small.
The curve of my upper teeth on the left is different than on the right which curves in towards the middle of my mouth.
My teeth have not had a single position to bite or sit comfortably since I was 10.
I’ve gone through long bouts of discomfort and pain which I would call compactions, but have been brushed off by dentists when I’ve brought this up.

I’ve had many unpleasant dental experiences, including very unprofessional treatment from a Private dentist as an NHS patient when I was 16 which led to my parents cancelling me getting braces.

The state of my dental health has probably ruined my life, it plays a large part in causing depression that I end up trying to hide as much as I do my teeth. And I literally cannot take it anymore.

My question:
I feel that my dental problems have also caused my jaw to recede, and I’m scared of moving forward and be given an inappropriate dental only solution to what could be a larger problem.

Where do I go, who do I ask and how do I take the right cosmetic first step?

What is the right option for my crooked, gapped teeth?

Thursday, October 6th, 2011
Q.

I would reall like your advice on what I should so about my teeth. I’m 21 years old and when I was about 10/11 I was told that eight of my baby teeth did not have adult teeth growing underneath. My front two teeth were adult teeth but have been crooked since I can remember and have had a gap. I wore fixed braces for two years which straightened them out but the subsequent retainer put strain on one of my molar teeth and subsequently had several fillings and eventually had to come out. I went back to have another retainer but my front teeth had moved apart again. I really lack confidence because of my teeth and don’t know which avenue to go down. I’m a student so money isn’t free flowing, I’m prepared to spend around £2000 on sorting it out but want to be sure I’m taking the right option. I’ve looked into comestic bonding and veneers but would really appreciate your advice on what you would recommend. Thanks

Are veneers fitted one or two at a time or all at once?

Monday, September 26th, 2011
Q.

I think I would benefit from some veneers. Can you tell me whether it is possible to have veneers fitted one or two at a time, rather than all at once, or would that a) make it difficult to fit further veneers to neighbouring teeth, and b) will they look odd against my existing teeth? My main problem is that a front lower tooth has become crooked and there is a gap between 2 of my teeth. Thank you very much doctor

Can my crooked tooth be fixed with braces?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011
Q.

Hi I wore a brace when I was younger but my bottom teeth have crossed at the front. I wore a retainer on my top set off teeth but not my bottom. Sometimes I feel conscious when I smile because this one tooth can be seen. I would like to ask if there is a solution to my problem although I don't think I could afford to pay for it at the moment so I would just like to speak to someone in advance. I would probably have a brace again or possibly consider the 6 month smile option, would this solution offer a permanent improvement or would it make my teeth worse , I really need some closure on this situation as the longer I wait the worse it becomes , Thanks
