Hi Mark. I have been to 2 private dentists in the last 6 weeks. I have been disappointed with both decisions. I have 8 10 year old crowns. I have gaps and they are disgusting. I also have an overbite and receding gums. I have a partial denture and 8 natural teeth. My 2 canines are like dracula’s due to the receding gums. The first dentist they would remove the upper set of teeth but are not willing to remove the bottom set of teeth. They’ll insert an upper denture but it has to match the colour of my bottom teeth. I said, “if I’m paying you I would like all of my teeth removed please”. They refused. The 2nd dentist said, “I am sorry I am not willing to remove any of your teeth, they are still quite strong”. Even though a crown fell out of my mouth 6 weeks ago whilst eating. I was very disappointed and came out of the dentist disheartened. It has cost me a lot of money in X-rays and consultation fees. I still have these dreadful teeth that I have to live with and talk with. It is so embarrassing. If I went to a hairdressers and asked them to cut my teeth, they would do it. It’s shocking. What should I do?
