Is Gum Treatment Free for Under 16s?

Friday, July 22nd, 2016
Q.

Hi! I am 14 and have had braces to fix my teeth. I am now on night-time only retainers. I have 3 problems: 

1) My gum line is uneven.
2) I lost my first retainers and had to go without them for a while and though I asked to have my teeth straightened as they stuck out a little, I was advised by my orthodontist to ‘just leave it’ and now have retainers in the form of my goofier teeth with my wisdom teeth almost fully grown.
3) My front tooth has a little yellow stain from natural causes. 
What I want to know is, will the gum treatment be free for me? Will the stain be able to be removed?
Will I have to still pay for new retainers that fit over my wisdom teeth also?
Thank you.

How Much Would it Cost to Fix My Discoloured Tooth?

Monday, February 29th, 2016
Q.

Hiya, I was just wondering how much it would cost as my front tooth is black and I need it fixing. it’s so embarrassing, I don’t go out because I feel everyone is staring at it. I was just wandering how much it would be to be filled and made the same colour as my other teeth? Please reply a price as it’s urgent, I’m losing everyone because I won’t go out because I’m worried of people laughing at my teeth. Please help me fix my teeth with some advice and a price as this is very upsetting for me and needs sorting as soon as possible.

My Tooth is Still Discoloured After Internal Whitening. What Can Be Done?

Friday, November 27th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I had root canal a year or so ago, and my tooth has been discoloured. I have had internal whitening which has lightened the overall colour of the tooth, however I have 3 very distributive black lines on my tooth and my dentist says there is nothing else he can do. But he is thinking from a dental perspective not a cosmetic, as to me my tooth is still discoloured and makes me very self conscious as it’s my front tooth. Does this sound like something that can be sorted?

Thank you.

Is Teeth Whitening That Uses Peroxide Safe?

Monday, October 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello there. I would like to whiten my teeth, which are quite discoloured. I do not smoke so I guess it’s age and tea drinking mainly! (I am 65yrs old). Most dentists use peroxide based systems,but some people say these damage the teeth enamel. Are these chemicals safe to use or will they possibly damage the enamel in the long term? There seem to be some articles that suggest peroxide should not be used. Thank you.

What is the Most Affordable Cosmetic Treatment for Dental Fluorosis?

Monday, July 20th, 2015
Q.

Hi. I have severe – and I mean severe – fluorosis which I find a liability on my social and economic life. What is the most affordable cosmetic treatment for dental fluorosis? I was born abroad in a Florine heavy part of Africa where almost everybody had the problem. All my teeth are discoloured (brown and dark brown). I am not looking for an expensive cosmetic solution, what I need is a less invasive and affordable solution. Thank you.

How Can I Treat Chipped and Discoloured Teeth Without Using Replacements or Veneers?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I’ve had braces and my teeth are straight, but I chips in a few of my front teeth. I also have some discolouration and towards the end of the tooth it’s almost transparent, I think this may be due to enamel wear as I drink a lot of Coke. I’m looking to get cosmetic dentistry to fix this, but what would be the best option for me to get this fixed without getting veneers or completely replacing the tooth? Thank you.

Should I Have Internal Bleaching, a Crown or Veneers to Treat Discoloration?

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I had a root canal on my maxillary lateral right incisor about 10 years ago, and it has discoloured really badly. This happened after my second set of braces were removed. Initially bonding masked the grey tone but eventually that’s come off as well. The tooth has also rotated back to its original shape prior to braces. Do you suggest internal bleaching, veneers or crowns? The thought of having a lot of the tooth shaved for a crown scares me a bit, especially in case it breaks.With veneers, would I require one or more to match the surrounding teeth? Thank you.

What is the Procedure for Teeth Whitening?

Friday, March 20th, 2015
Q.

I am interested in having my teeth whitened. I’m a non smoker and have good oral hygiene. I have also got one crown which is 5th from my front tooth, I’m under the impression that will not change in colour, is that right? What is the procedure and the success rate? Also, is it a fixed price or is the price dependent on the discolouration? What are the options for teeth whitening, is it done over a period of time or as a one off? Thank you.
