Teeth problems have severely affected my confidence

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009
Q.
I’m 17(nearly 18) but I’m still in full time education (colledge). My teeth severly affect my confidence, I never smile in photos, I have 2 chipped front teeth from rough play as a child and still have 4 worn down baby teeth where my adult teeth haven’t grown through and according to an x ray aren’t there. Is it possible to get vineers/crowns on the NHS?

The replaced crown has not changed my cosmetic appearance

Monday, November 9th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Moore My dentist recently fitted a new (procera inceram) crown for me to replace an old crown. It is my big front incisor on the top. He has done a good job with the shape and colour but I can still see a blue line at the margn. My natural smile shows my gum line and the main reason I asked for a new crown was that several friends got crowns that seem to be like real teeth and have subgingival margins. When I asked my dentist for a new crown I made it clear money was not a consideration and that cosmetic appearance was my priority regardless of cost. But on fitting my new crown it is most definitely at least half a mil short of my gums and not much of an improvement over my last crown. Should I sack the dentist I have had since a child on the grounds he is a dinosaur. or should I quietly go behind his back?

Front teeth stick out and look very bad need treatment

Monday, November 9th, 2009
Q.
Dear Mr Bohara, When i was around 15 i was referred to a orthodontist, I cancelled the appointment and didn’t continue with my treatment. Two of front teeth stick out like ”vampire teeth”. I was just wondering how much it would cost me to have braces and how long do you think i would have to keep them on for!

Abnormal crowded bottom teeth need a makeover for a better smile

Thursday, November 5th, 2009
Q.
I have quite severe overcrowding in my lower teeth leaving the front 4 quite crooked, one in particular which is pushed back behind the others. My top teeth are also slightly crooked but nowhere near as bad as the bottom. It has left me miserable and embarrassed to talk or smile. I am 30 years old. What would be your recommended treatment, how much is it likely to cost, and are such treatments usually payable by a payment plan? Thank you.

Need extensive makeover to my teeth

Saturday, October 31st, 2009
Q.
I’m 22 and my teeth are awful! I’m embarassed to smile, laugh and often get told to ‘cheer up’ because of my regular closed mouth expression. My teeth are discoloured, sensitive, and crooked. This is due to lack of dental care when I was a child. I regularly use whitening products, and sensitive toothpastes, I visit the dentist but just seem to have filling upon filling. I’m so scared of one of my front teeth completely falling out. I honestly feel like I would be happier with false teeth, which is a bit of a daunting prospect at the age of 22. Being a student, I cant afford cosmetic dentisty and even the financial plas seem to want £100+ a month, which just isnt an option for me. I don’t seem to have a local dentistry school, and even ones far away seem to have full waiting lists. I’ve considered using a student loan to go abroad to have ‘cheap’ dentistry work done but hav been advised this could make things even worse. What should I do?

Need latest treatment to fix my uneven crowded teeth

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009
Q.
Hi, I had braces on my top teeth when I was 17. I’m now 30 and I’m very self conscious of my ‘goofy’ teeth. The braces did straighten my teeth but my top teeth have always stuck out over my bottom ones. When I close my back teeth I am able to slide my little finger between the gap. When I had braces they never addressed my crooked bottom teeth and so I never have elastic bands to help the alignment of my teeth/jaw. As an adult now I feel I was possibly mistreated. I’m incredibly self conscious of my smile and I find I’m beginning to hide my teeth and mouth when I speak and laugh. All of this infuriates my husband who insists its part of what makes me me but I hate it! Is there anything that could help?
