My Crowns Are Forming Wide Gaps Between Them. What Can Be Done?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016
Q.

Hello, I have crowns on my front teeth both top and bottom. I had these done when I was abroad about 8 years ago. The front ones on the top are forming wide gaps between them. Is there anything I can get done without replacing them? I am not sure, but I heard that there can be splints put between them. If so, are these expensive? I do not want to have to replace them as they are very expensive. Thanks.

I Have A Big Gap Between My Two Front Teeth And I Never Smile. What Would Be The Best Procedure For This?

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I would be so grateful for your advice. I have a big gap between my 2 front teeth and I never smile because of it. I am just wondering what would be the best procedure to close it? I’d also like to know the price of this procedure and the pros and cons involved.
I really want the gap gone or even just a little bit smaller as it is too big and people make fun of me because of it. I have heard about cosmetic bonding and I am interested in that. I have also seen on YouTube about rubber bands that can close the gap but I am not sure if this is safe. I hope you can help.

I Want To Have Braces To Close The Gap In The Middle Of My Smile. Are Braces Safe?

Monday, October 20th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I need to have a tooth extracted and cosmetic bonding on my teeth as I’ve got a tooth under my gum. Is this safe to remove, as I am a little scared? I need to have this treatment done because I have a gap in the middle tooth and I want braces to close the gap, I was advised to this before I put braces on my teeth, so please could you advise me on what to do? Is it safe and what can I expect in terms of price when having such an operation.
Thank you.

My Teeth Are Crowded And I’m Uncomfortable With The Way My Smile Looks. Should I Have Braces?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. 12 years ago I lost an upper tooth when I was young. My other teeth came together to fill the gap but know I can’t smile in front of other people as I don’t feel comfortable with the way it looks. Now one upper tooth is too big compared to the others which are small. I think I need a gap filling through the use of braces. Can you tell me if this would help? I have never been to a dentist so I don’t know what to do really. Please provide me with information about what should I do. Thank you very much.

Which Treatment Would Be Best To Correct An Open Bite. Braces Or Dental Implants?

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have an open bite or fish bite type of teeth. My lower jaw teeth and the upper set has a significant gap when I close my jaws together.
The two front teeth are excessively displaced outward.
Either I should take those front two out teeth and implant artificial teeth in the alignment of the other front teeth or use fixed braces to solve my problem.
Either way I need to take two of my teeth out, and I guess implanting artificial will be quicker than having fixed braces for a long period. Which would you suggest?

My Teeth Are So Sensitive I Can’t Get Them Whitened. Why Does My Dentist Tell Me That My Teeth Are Healthy?

Friday, September 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have extremely sensitive teeth which causes severe pain in my face. They are also crooked & discoloured causing me embarrassment & I am really self conscious about them. I can’t whiten them as they are so sensitive. My front teeth are also moving as I am developing a gap in between them that I have never had before. My dentist isn’t very good & offers me no advice just saying there is nothing wrong with them. I have got to the point where I actually want them removing & replacing with natural looking dentures. Is this possible when I have, according to my dentist ‘healthy teeth’?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Gambroudes, I am a 29 year old male and I have a gap between my front upper teeth, which is about 3-4 mm wide. I don’t want to have to wear braces, so is there a quick, efficient solution to fill the gap that doesn’t involve orthodontics? I’d really appreciate your help with this matter. Please inform me of the best solution for my situation, I’m really hoping there’s an effective alternative to braces. I don’t have a lot of money to spend and I’d like a fast treatment so I can get this gap filled as soon as possible. Thank you for considering my question, I look forward to reading your response.

I Am Terrified Of Dentists And I Have Tooth Decay And A Large Gap Between My Front Teeth. Could I Be Sedated Before Treatment Commences?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I am a mental health patient as I have schizo-affective disorder which is a mood disorder which means depression with a few traits of schizophrenia. I am terrified of dentists and I haven’t been to the dentist for quite a while. I have a big gap between my two front teeth and problems with decay. It really bothers me a lot but I am 40 now. Is it possible for me to be put to sleep in a hospital dentistry department and how are they going to fix the gap in my teeth? Thank you.

My 14 Year Old Daughter Needs Braces But Her Orthodontist Said This Wouldn’t Be Covered By The NHS. Should I Keep Trying?

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Patel. My 14 year old daughter has gaps between her top front teeth. Her dentist suggested braces for her and referred her to an orthodontist. The orthodontist agreed that a brace would be beneficial however said that it wouldn’t be covered on the national health! We can’t afford the £2000 quoted but are now concerned as one of her teeth appears to be twisting. Is it worth going back and asking again whether it will now be covered on the national health? Thank you.

I Have A Gap Between My Teeth And I’m Embarrassed Of My Teeth. How Can I Get Braces Treatment?

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I would like your help. I have a gap between my two teeth and I’m really embarrassed of my teeth, but when I asked my old dentist they said I can’t have braces because it’s a cosmetic thing. So I really want to ask my new dentist. Do you thing they will say yes if I tell her I’m embarrassed to smile? I’m scared they will say no. I don’t know what to tell her? I’m so embarrassed of myself when I smile. I just want to smile and never stop but now I just can’t because of my gap. Thank you.
