I Have A Maternity Exemption Card. Will I Be Able To Get Dental Crowns Fitted For Free?

Thursday, August 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. My 4 front teeth are becoming thin as my enamel is wearing away which makes me insecure but also makes my teeth really sensitive. I have a maternity exemption card. If I ask my dentist to fit the crowns will I get this for free or do they have the final decision as to whether I need them or not? Or also are dental crowns the best solution or would veneers help me? Would love some advice so I can go to the dentist with a bit of information.

Thanks.

I Had A Crown Re-stuck The Other Day And Now I Have A Gap Between My Front Teeth. Could You Tell Me How To Fix This?

Thursday, August 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. I have three crowns on my front teeth. I am 47 and have had them for about 20 years! I had a crown re-stuck the other day by my dentist and I now have a gap between my front teeth. I never had a gap naturally or when original crowns fitted.
I returned to dentist who said he could not get the crown out and he’d have to “cut it” out. Is this correct? Anyway he took an X-ray and said I still had two “rumbling” infections above my two front right crowns. I had an apicoectomy a long time ago now and I don’t want to repeat the experience.
He said my only options are to fill the gap by adding some sort of material to my left front natural tooth to close the gap, but he said it would angle out from the top which sounds awful! Could you tell me how I can fix this? Thank you for your time.

I Had Implants Done Abroad, And I Need The Crowns My Dentist Sent By Courier To Be Fitted In The UK. How Would This Be Done?

Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Shaffie. I already have two dental implants done abroad. The crowns had to be replaced because they were not firm, my dentist took new teeth impressions and had new crowns made, but unfortunately they were not ready when I left for my studies in the UK. My dentist has sent them to me by courier. I would like to find out if I can have them fitted here in the UK? I am currently studying in Cardiff. How much would it cost to fit them? Would a dentist be willing to take on a patient just to fit already prepared crowns? You would really be helping me out if you could offer any advice. Thanks.

What Is The Best Solution For Throbbing Pain In The Maxillary Central Incisors?

Monday, July 29th, 2013
Q.

Hi Doc, I wanted to know what is the best solution for throbbing pain in the Maxillary central incisors with pfm capping and done 2 yrs back on both. I am 26 , have no history of trauma.I had this pain 2 months back , to which the doctors declared my lateral maxillary incisor non-vital supposing it to be acute periapical abcess and did an RCT to it.I had an ortho treatment ( with braces and RCT on 11, 21) when I was 15 with metal capping because my permanent maxillary incisors on eruption were brittle and showed signs of discolouration. Doctors said my mother might have had some medications while she was pregnant with me, due to the reaction of which I had distorted permanent teeth on eruption. Now I have again started to get this throbbing pain on both the incisors for the past 1 month post Lateral incisor RCT , and every doctor I visit says go for episectomy , which I dont want to since there is no gum boil , no mobility in both the teeth , no visible swelling or inflammation, just dull throbbing pain which gets really aggravated during the nights. I have been constantly put on antibiotics for past 2 months , and undergone OPG . Please advice some line of treatment . I donot want to go in for episectomy for sure. Thank a mil!

I’m Not Sure What My Dentist Suggested Is Right For Me, What Do You Think?

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could advise me with something? My front four teeth need new cosmetic work done, I have three posts and crowns and one crown, all in the front. The problem is for years they have been put in singular and the posts always come loose. My dentist is suggesting redoing and this time connected either all 4, or 2 each depending on root. What is the benefits and is this the best answer? I should say I also have a cross bite. Another dentist suggested invisalign, but I am 45 and really my teeth arent crooked except there for the cross bite teeth, 2 of them. one on the bottom and top. Also will I be ok without being able to floss connected teeth? Thanks for your help.

I Want Veneers On My Front Teeth, Is This Possible?

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013
Q.

Hi I just have a couple of questions. I had a root canal on my front teeth a few years ago now it is slightly discoloured and a little chipped, it really bothers me but, my dentist has advised not to have a crown or veener and leave it as it is and not to mess with it as it may cause it to fall out in the near future, is there anything at all you can advise? I would like 4 veeners across the front top if possible do you think there is anything i can do? I’m really not happy with the appearance of it, I feel he’s just being lazy! I’m the one who has to live with it and smile with it showing, with it being on my front tooth I feel like everyone can see it. It’s making me feel very self-conscious but what am I supposed to do if he won’t fix it for me? Thanks

Hi when i was a child one of my front teeth didn’t come through properly and became slanted like wonky,my Dentist gave me braces and it didn’t help much it straightened out a bit but when the braces where removed the tooth went back into its original position and has since moved a tooth either side of it while it was going back into position from the braces.Over the years it has caused me a lot of distress i suffered badly with bullying and low self esteem now at 21 i really want this sorting as it would be a huge lift of my shoulders and feel like i can finally smile i haven’t smiled for photos in years because of the issue.Would the best course of action to have the 3 teeth removed and replaced with fake ones? also is this possible on the NHS i cant seem to find anything helpful through google searches which is how i came along this website,also if it helps the 3 teeth are front 3 on my top jaw

My Crown Regularly Falls Off, What Kind Of Treatment Can Replace This?

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could please advise me with something? My two front teeth have two crows on them one of the crowns regularly comes off and I have to go and get it glued back on from the dentist. My dentist has advised me that the post to which it is attached is too short and hence why it keeps coming off and loosening. He has recommended I have an implant put in however this is a costly process and one which I can not afford too easily at the moment, obviously I don’t want to be toothless. Are there any alternative treatments that I would be able to go ahead with in this situation? I wouldn’t mind another implant, as I said I’m slightly worried about the cost of it all.Thank you for your help in advance.
