How Can I Reduce The Gap Between My Front Teeth Without The Use Of Braces?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Gambroudes. How do I reduce the gap between my front teeth. I have actually had my braces put back 1 year, but this gap has re-occurred. Can you suggest to me any ideas to get rid of this gap? I had this gap before and I had braces put in to close it. I don’t want to have braces any more because I had them for almost 2 years and I had a retainer but it still came back again. Is there anything that can be done without putting braces on? The gap is not that much but it is uncomfortable for me. Thank you for your time.

My Two Front Teeth Stand Out More Than My Others. They Sometimes Cause Me Pain. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hi there, Dr Gambroudes. My upper front two teeth stick out a lot more than my other ones and they are significantly bigger whilst also being bent. I’m 20 years old now so I doubt there’s much chance they’ll fix themselves now. I think they’ve been like this for quite a while now but its only begun annoying me in the past year as I’ve become really self conscious. I also suffer from pain in these two teeth on and off. If I wanted to go about fixing this what are my options? I really suffer from a lack of self confidence as I’ve become more and more aware about these problems. Thanks.

The Enamel On My Friends Teeth Has Come Off After Taking Tablets. What Can Be Done To Help Her?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have a friend who because she has taken tablets the enamel on her teeth has all come off and her confidence has totally gone with it. She won’t go out and this is the reason as she doesn’t want anyone to see her. She is not working and claims benefits so really can’t afford much. Can you help and advise me please as to where to go from here to help her? I hope you can offer your advice. Many thanks.

I Have A Calcium Deficiency. My Veneer Fell Off And I Need It Replaced. Could A Dental Trainee Do This?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi there. I am a model and currently receiving more job offers than ever, however my teeth will lose me work. Only yesterday I lost a veneer. I was born with calcium deficiency and my teeth have suffered greatly. I discovered a few years ago that I have a pituitary tumour, it has probably been there since I was a child and hence why I’ve discovered many problems that I’ve only found throughout my adulthood. I was quoted a few years ago from a dentist from York, who said they would give me a Hollywood smile for £2800, but even that I can’t afford. Here in the U.K it would cost around £14000 so my question is: Can I have work done by being a study for trainees? I have veneers, bridges, crowns and I’ve had major work done which were fabulous but that was over 18 years ago. Can someone help? I’m willing to travel….. Regards.

I Can’t Afford To Get My Veneers. Do You Know If I Could Get A Dental Student To Do This For Me?

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I need 8 veneers but cannot afford the 3000 pounds it costs to get them. Do you know where can I get help and whether a student dentist could do them? My top 8 teeth are rotting away, this is due to not taking care of them and it’s also because my family have all had weak teeth. I have lost most of my confidence due to this. I am now 43 years old and I know I would find it much easier to talk to women as when I smile I do it with my mouth shut. Thank you for your time in advance.

Hello. My Veneers Are On Coming To Their End. Could I Get Dentures Instead? Would This Be A Better Solution?

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I’ve had veneers for over 8 years now and my dentist said they are coming to the end. They are on the top, my bottom ones are still real.

To be honest, I regret getting these veneers. Several have come off over the years, which has been distressing. I don’t want to have to spend so much money to replace them. I want to know if there is a cheaper alternative to replacing the veneers?

Dentures? Or something like that. Can I get false teeth to just sit on top of the old ones? I don’t mind if I have to take them out to eat. There is still some of the original enamel on all my top set of teeth, from where it was filed down to fit the veneers. Thanks.

My Girlfriend Has Fluorosis Throughout Her Teeth. Can It Be Removed Naturally Or By A Dentist?

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013
Q.

My girlfriend is 23 years old and has fluorosis pigmentation throughout her teeth. Can it be decreased or removed naturally or through a dentist? I have found some natural remedies given in other websites but they all are meant for children. Can this be cured for adults? I am not sure whether she has undergone a treatment during childhood which has caused this. Could you help us solve this problem as I find it difficult to find much information on the condition for adults. Thank you, I look forward to hearing your reply.

My Dentist Has Recommended Air Flow, What Is This? And How Will It Improve My Veneers?

Monday, August 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could help me with an issue? I am sixty years old and have had my front teeth done with veneers which are old now. Now I’m going off the colour of them. But having recently been made redundant I can’t afford to have them replaced .I visited my Nhs dentist today and he recommended something called Air flow. Im not sure what that is. Would that help or shall I have them removed altogether? .I really don’t know what to do .As we have moved to Devon now as my old dentist who did them is in Hampshire so I can’t go back there .And I’m now really ashamed of my teeth so I hide them a lot. Can you please advise me on the matter. I don’t know who to turn to. Thank you in advance.

I’m Not Happy With My Implant Crown, Can My Dentist Correct It Free Of Charge?

Monday, August 5th, 2013
Q.

Hi, about a year ago I had a crown replaced which looked great and I was really happy with. After about three months I was in considerable pain and was told that my root had fractured and that I would now lose my tooth. I was given the option of a denture, bridge or implant. I decided to go with the implant as I felt this would be more beneficial. My other front tooth was always very slightly set back from my crown (naturally) and very slightly discoloured from the rest of my teeth and it was always my intention to have a veneer or crown on this one too in order to give myself a straighter smile. I went ahead and had the implant then my dentist went on maternity leave. Another dentist took over and did the impressions for my implant crown and at the time I informed her that I was going to have some sort of work on the one next to it done when my original dentist came back. When my crown came back and was fitted I noticed it stuck out quite a lot from my other teeth and much further than my original crown had. Where my other teeth come straight down, this one kicks out. I also have no bite at all on this tooth now. When I queried this I was told that it is preferred that you don’t have any bite on an implant at all and because I was going to have work done on the tooth next to it, it allowed them to change the shape of my tooth. I was never asked nor agreed to changing of the shape of my tooth. She told me it looked great and said I’d get used to it.

I was going to wait until my original dentist came back from maternity leave before having any work done on the front tooth next to it but decided that I couldn’t wait as the new ‘sticky out’ implant made the one next to it seem even further in so I went back and saw the dentist who did the implant. She is now saying that rather than cut away at the healthy tooth next to it and fit a crown that she would rather fit a veneer instead but that this won’t bring the tooth in line with the implant. I have two options now, I can either accept that since my implant sticks out so far and I have a veneer that I will never have straight teeth or, I can have my other tooth crowned to bring it in line with my sticky out implant and have two sticky out teeth!! I feel that the problem is with the implant crown but my dentist doesn’t see this. She says that I notice it because I’m aware of it but no one else does!! I really hate my teeth now but I’m loathe to pay again to replace the crown. Is there any way that I can insist on them correcting the crown on the implant free of charge? Am now wishing I had just gone for a bridge instead as my temporary one (done by my original dentist) looked much more natural.

Why Won’t My NHS Dentist Provide My 14-Year-Old With Dental Veneers?

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013
Q.

My 14 year old daughter has very dark brown markings and fluoride markings on all her teeth due to being infected as a child by fluoride in the water. She has already had 2 composites placed on her front 2 teeth in 2007 and has just completed finished her fixed orthodontics. Our dentist has said she isn’t allowed to get veneers on all her teeth on the NHS but the orthodontist has said she must have these dealt with and veneers is the only option. She has tried many other treatments for years which haven’t worked. Where do i stand legally regarding having veneers fitted on all her badly affected teeth on the NHS? Surely they can do something about this, it isn’t her fault that her teeth look like this. Thank you for your time.
