What Can Be Done About My Grandson’s Discolouration?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

My 12 year old grandson is losing the top layer of his two front teeth. They are really yellow and is affecting his confidence. He has had some treatment at the hospital where they scrape his teeth and paint on a layer. It looks good for a couple of weeks but then deteriorates. Is there anything that can be done? His dentist said not until he is at least 16 when he could possibly have veneers. I have contacted several dentists, they have said the same thing and that it has probably stemmed from his diet as a young child. I disagreed as he had a very good diet and never until this day drinks fizzy juice.

I Want To Know How Well The Enlighten Deep Cleaning System Works And Whether It Affects Thin Enamel?

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Moore, I have quite a few questions I need to ask you about the enlighten deep bleaching system. Does the enlighten deep bleaching system work on patients with thinning enamel? Also could you tell me how well does it bleaches dentine? Will they experience more sensitivity? How much change should a patient expect to see in the final hours session within the surgery? If teeth are not very white by this stage, will it have a significant effect? Thank you, I hope you can provide me with an answer.

Can teeth whitening improve my teeth as I have severe fluorosis?

Monday, October 29th, 2012
Q.

I have severe fluorisis caused by having fluoride tablets and fluoride in the water as a child. As a child and teenager I was told that my only option would be to have veneers or caps and I didn’t like the idea of losing my real enamel and then having to replace them. My dentist mentioned tooth whitening and wondered what options there are and how I can go about finding a reputable dentist who would understand my condition? thanks

The enamel is wearing at the tops of my teeth, what can I do?

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011
Q.

I havefor some time noticed that I am losing enamel from the top of my top teeth near the gum line. This is now becoming more pronounced and of some concern although eeth so far have not discoloured or causing any sensitivity, I am concerned about the long term effect.
I am been advised by a local dentist to have fillings in the top of my teeth although I am concerned about this.
Is this the only option or are there other options. I thought I had read about an enamel replacement treatment.
Many thanks

Has teeth whitening damaged my teeth?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Dear Dentist

I had my teeth whitening in surgery and my dentist used 27% Hydrogen Peroxide. Since then I run my tongue over my teeth and they feel slightly rough. I ca also see abrasive brush and scratch marks on the enamel in light on my canines. And when I run my nail over them they feel lumpy. I never studied or felt my teeth like this before but could a high level peroxide potentially burn or change the texture of your enamel? I feel as if I have damaged the structure of my teeth?

Also does tooth whitening with high level peroxide permanently make the enamel more porous and prone to cavities?

Thank you for your time

Is there a way my tooth can be polished to be smoother?

Thursday, February 17th, 2011
Q.

Mark, a few days ago I used a metal pik to dislodged some food/substance from the inner surface of my left front tooth but since I’ve done it the surface doesn’t feel like smooth glass anymore but like rough/burning sandpaper. Is there a way that the tooth surface can be got back to being smooth again? It’s getting me down as it feels uncomfortable and I’m worried i’ve filed the enamel off the tooth and done irreversible damage. Thanks
