I Hate The Gap Between My Two Front Teeth And I Want It Fixed. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I am 19 years old and I have a gap in between my two front teeth, but apart from that my other teeth are virtually perfect. I hate the way my teeth look so much, because of my gap (it’s caused by one of my front teeth being crooked). I really want this one tooth sorted out so that I can smile with my teeth for once! What should I do? I was never advised to get braces when I was a child because my dentist thought my gap would close as I got older. Please, I hope you can help and give me any advice, many thanks.

I Have One Crooked Tooth Which Stops Me From Smiling. What Would Be The Cheapest Way To Fix This Before I Go Travelling?

Friday, December 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. It’s just a quick query. I previously had braces while I was in school and had a permanent brace fitted behind my front top teeth. This however broke after a month and they wanted to charge me again which I stupidly didn’t but I have learnt my lesson now. I have one crooked tooth and the rest are straight but I hate smiling for the sake of this one tooth. I was just wondering what I could have and what is the cheapest as I’m on a tight budget saving for travelling.

Many thanks, I look forward to hearing from you.

I Have A Protruding Tooth That Makes Me Self Conscious When I Smile. Is It Safe To Remove? What Can Be Done To Help?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Q.

Hello Doctor, I am a 38-year-old female who has one protruding upper incisor that grew before I lost my milk teeth. The rest of my teeth are fine. I had tried wearing braces once several years ago, but the separators the orthodontist used to create gaps between my teeth didn’t work. There isn’t much space between my teeth, and they are otherwise quite strong. I don’t really want to have the protruding incisor extracted because I feel all my teeth will become loose, however, I still want to make my upper row of teeth uniform because I am very-self-conscious when I smile. The protruding tooth does not create problems with closing my mouth, but I’d still like to fix it. Please can you advise me on what kind of treatment is best for me, where I could get it done and how much it would cost? Thank you.

How Can I Straighten My Single Crooked Tooth?

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013
Q.

Hello, out of all my teeth I have one tooth at the front that is a bit crooked and I want to have it straightened. Although I don’t want to have to go through the whole process of having braces just for this one tooth because its not worth it. Do you know if there are any other options I could take just to straighten this one tooth? It is at the front of my mouth and all of my other teeth are absolutely fine which is why i want to get this one seen too. if you know any treatments that i could straighten it without going through too much hassle that would be great. Thankyou.

Following A Blow To The Face, My Teeth Are Pushed Back Slightly. Is This Just The Swelling Or Do I Need To See A Dentist?

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

I was struck in the face by a fleeing suspect the other day at work – they had me sent to the ER just to be safe, everything seemed fine other than bruised and swollen, however, since then I’ve noticed that my left front incisor and the tooth next to it (before the canine) are pushed slightly back, and the incisor is angled ever so slightly so the front incisors are no longer even. It’s very annoying because now my lower incisor hits the top one if I’m not super careful while chewing. I’m still swollen (it’s only been about 30 hours since it happened), and none of the teeth seem to be loose at all. Could this be a result of the swelling, or should I be contacting HR to get my teeth looked at as soon as I can open my mouth that far (still too swollen for anyone to get a good look at anything)?

Hi, I have crooked and yellow front teeth, I want veneers but my dentist says i’m, too young, what do you think?

Friday, January 28th, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr Glaister,

I have one crooked tooth right at the front of my teeth on the top set. It overlaps the next tooth slightly, and I feel that it is becoming discoloured. I have asked my dentist for veneers, but she says I am too young and my teeth are too healthy (I’m 23 years old). She suggested orthodontics instead, but I don’t want to go through two years of braces, for the discolouration to be more noticable when my teeth are straight. Is there any reason why my dentist would take my age into consideration?
