I Have Discoloured Teeth And My Gums Are Weak. I’m Not After A Hollywood Makeover, I Just Want To Know What Can Be Done?

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. I am in my fifties and I have discoloured greyish teeth. I also have quite a lot of metal fillings and three crowns, one of which is in the front and does not match in colour or shape to my other teeth. My teeth and gums are quite weak. I have tried to have improvements carried out by my dentist but they have not worked out that well. I have lost all my confidence and don’t know where to turn to. I would like to have a nice smile with normal looking teeth. I’m not after a Hollywood makeover. I would like to know what can be done, have trust in the people doing it and what the end result would look like.

Suffer with severe psoriasis and been informed that the tin in my fillings is causing a reaction. Can these be replaced?

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013
Q.

Hi there. I have suffered with severe psoriasis for approx. 20 years now, and have tried pretty much every treatment from steroidal creams and lotions to UV chambers and as yet nothing has proven to be effective. A number of years ago a kineaseologist told me that the tin within the fillings in my teath we causing a reaction that is directly related to my condition, he advised that I take yellow dock capsules in order to combat this reaction, however has proved inaffective. I have several fillings and am now at the stage of desperation where I am thinking about getting all the fillings replaced. I was wandering if you could please advise me on the best approach in order to achieve this and get some idea as regard to cost. I realise that this would be largely dependant on number of fillings etc. I’m sure I could get my dental records forwarded to you as required. I would very much appreciate any advice you may be able to give me.

i have just turned 15 and allmost all my teeth have fillings in, i dont get how my teeth are so bad when i brush them 2times a day and i tend not to drink fizzy juices and sweets. i hate laughing and smiling because my mouth is almost silver with them. Is it possible for your teeth to be taken out and new ones put in? but not like false teeth that old people get, single ones? and how old do you need to be?

I need a full smile makeover, and I wondered if you had any information concerning price and the general procedures involved?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
Q.
Hi. I’ve had trouble with my teeth from a young age. A combination of factors has lead to this. Not brushing regularly as a child, eating too much sugary foods and a terrible fear of the dentist. I’ve had several back teeth taken out and now have metal fillings in most of the remaining teeth. Ideally I would like a complete smile makeover including veneers, White fillings and whitening procedure. I would like to know how best to go about getting this work done. I believe I need 9 White filling replacements 8 veneers. I live in northern Ireland and would like to know 1. How a dentist would go about this work and 2. A rough guide as to how much it would cost. Thanks,

Would like to know if gold tips are added while root canal?

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009
Q.
I chipped my front teeth as a teen ager and got three caps. Over time root canals were done. One root canal was done nearly 30 years ago in Hungary with some mysteriouis metal. The caps were replaced over 15 years ago and it is important to redo the root canal treatment. My dentist suggests laser treatment and then filling the roots with some rubber substance or a rubber substance with gold tips. What are the advantages and disadvantages of adding the gold tips to the roots? I would think that the less metal in our mouths the better.

My filling is fracturing and tastes weird is it harmless?

Monday, December 7th, 2009
Q.
Hi there, Im 27 and having a nightmare with my teeth, I havnt been to the dentist in over 3 years because my husbands salary went up and we are no longer entitled to it free. Anyway, my top middle tooth had previously had a black filling in, and the other day while I was eating a crunchy pizza, I heard a crack and half the filling fell out, the tooth is wobbly at the back half and Im really sore. Every time I swallow, I taste a chemical taste and worried about mercury poisoning (if not, what is the taste?) I have to find a dentist on Monday, and wont even have the time off to get it fixed until next Friday, whats the best thing to do until then, is the chemical taste harmless? half the filling is still there. Thank you This is horrible
