I’ve Seen Two Dentists And They Both Refused To Extract My Teeth. What Should I Do?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

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?

Is It Viable To Use A Previously Extracted Tooth As A Crown For My Back Molars. Has This Ever Been Done Before.

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello. Is it viable to use one’s own wisdom teeth (previously extracted) to create crowns for the back molars? Would the tooth remain strong? Stronger than the traditional metal casing cap added porcelain? Could the wisdom tooth be drilled out and the cap mould poured into the wisdom tooth? Would it survive longer than the average 10-15 years? Rather the 50 plus years I expect to need it? The fit would be great since I recently found three wisdom teeth and I may need crowns on the back upper and lower molars they need to be a perfect bite match. Very curious to find out if this has been tried and what the success rates are if so. Thank you.

The Back of My Crown Feels Rough. What Should I Do?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
Q.

Good afternoon Dr Gambroudes, thank you for taking the time to read my question. I have just had a back crown replaced today with a CEREC crown. I have been asked to wait a week and see how it feels, and then by all means go back to the clinic if there are any problems. At the moment, it’s obviously quite sore and feeling a bit strange which is of course to be expected, but I have realised as the anaesthetic is wearing off that the back of the crown feels very rough against my tongue when other crowns I already have feel smooth. Is this normal? What should I do please? Thank you in advance.

I Had Implants Fitted In Hungary But One Didn’t Take. Should I Demand That They Refit It?

Thursday, June 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I had six dental implants in total fitted which was completed in Budapest. Unfortunately one did not take. I had to go back to get it sorted when I returned to Budapest to have crown fittings. I have just been fitted with a zirconium crown for that implant but the implant is visible. The dentist whom did the crown has suggested waiting a month then he will fill the gap with a pink porcelain. What’s your opinion on this? Should I demand a refit or is this acceptable?

I Am Self Conscious About My Gold Tooth. Is There A More Natural Looking Alternative I can Replace It With?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew, I need your advice. I had a gold tooth put in one of my top back teeth when I was younger. I think this was because it was a chipped tooth or it could have been a cavity as I also had root canal treatment. I was told the gold tooth would be best as I didn’t have wisdom teeth which I do now. I am self conscious when I smile because you can still see it, is there a more natural looking alternative I can replace it with?

Thanks, it would be great to hear from you.

What Would Be The Better Long Term Option For Me, A Full Crown Or An Half Crown/Cap?

Friday, March 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I hope you can help me with my enquiry. I have recently broken a third off of one of my top molars and have been given the option from my dentist to have a crown fitted or a half crown/cap. The half crown is a cheaper option but I am worried that it will not be as strong and last as long as a full crown. Do you have any information on this and what do you consider the best option.

I look forward to hearing your reply. Thank you.

I Had A Root Canal 3 Years And Now My Tooth Has Gone Grey. Would Bleaching Work For Me?

Monday, March 10th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore,
I had a root canal done 3 three years ago and then my tooth became orange/grey.
I would like to know if internal bleaching is a good option as my tooth has not discoloured that much and I am not interested in a crown so far. In regards to veneers I was told that I have to have it done on my 2 front teeth and I do not like this option as one of these teeth is totally healthy.
I am looking to find a dentist that could do it. Could you also tell me how much it would cost?

I hope to hear from you.

What Would Be The Best Type Of Treatment To Close My Gaps? I Fear That My Teeth Will Continue To Shift If I Don’t Do Something About It?

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My lower incisors have a 1-2mm gap between each one. The teeth are in good condition, not crooked, none missing and no chips. What would be the best type of treatment to close the gaps?
The gaps have become more and more noticeable over the year and I fear that the teeth will continue the shift if I don’t do something about it.
I have read about Invisalign and was wondering if I would be a suitable candidate? I would like to know how long it takes to work and if they need adjusting over time. I look forward to receiving your advice with regards to this.

My Crowns Are Coming Loose. What Would It Cost Me To Have A Bridge For All Five?

Thursday, February 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, I have a question for you that I hope you can help me with. I have five crowns in the front of my mouth and I would like to have them all on one bridge. Could you please tell me if there are any problems with this suggestion and if it would be a good idea? What kind of cost would I be expecting for this type of treatment?

I am looking to do this as the crowns don’t fit every well and are always coming loose, I have been told a bridge would look and fit a lot better, if you can advice me what I should do that would be great. Thanks a lot.

Can You Tell Me If I Can Get My Crown Down Under General Anaesthetic? Sedation Doesn’t Work For Me.

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. Can you please advise me whether I would be able to have a general anaesthetic to have a crown done? I am extremely nervous and cannot bring myself to have it done even under sedation as this has not worked for me in the past. It is a tooth at the front that has broken before and my dentist has suggested a crown to fix it permanently. I really am very nervous and was even in tears yesterday just at the though of going to my dentist for her to have a look at it. I know this will probably be very expensive but it is the only way I feel that I can go through with it.
