Can I Get Dental Help From the NHS or Will I Need to Go Private?

Thursday, September 24th, 2015
Q.

I had an eating disorder for many years and now my front teeth are very worn and sensitive. They now look more like fangs than teeth due to vomiting and brushing my teeth straight after. Do the NHS help with cosmetic dentistry in cases like mine or would I have to go private and what would the cost be? I have had to have three back teeth removed in the past not because they had rotten, more that the small holes caused by acid caused a great deal of pain. Now I no longer feel like I can smile, I don’t like people to see my front teeth.

I Had An Eating Disorder At A Young Age. Is There A Type Of Paste You Use To Fill The Gaps In Smiles?

Friday, April 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. I hope you can help me with my enquiry. At a young age I had a eating disorder, I would throw up everything I would eat for over Four years, with the help and love of my parents and friends I over came this, but now I notice that with so much throwing up that I was doing, I made a gap between my two front teeth, it isn’t big but I don’t like it how much would it be? And is there such type of paste to cover it? Or to fill in all the spaces I have? Thank you for taking the time to listen and I look forward to your reply.

My Dentist Says I Shouldn’t Whiten My Teeth, Should I Ignore Him?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Q.

I’m desperate to get my teeth whittened,they’re not terrible but would love a brighter,whiter smile. I’ve had past trials and tribulations. During my mid-teens I suffered with bulimia which I think has contributed to why my teeth are sensitive already.I’m now 26 yrs old fit, healthy and recovered. But I’m forever using whitening toothpastes to attempt to achieve that white smile but still not satisfied! After to speaking to my dentist briefly he has advised me 1. To stop using whitenning tooth pastes and 2. That teeth whittening would be a bad option for me as I have sensitive teeth already,would. It be a terrible idea to ignore him?
