My Dentist Fitted A Crown Instead Of A Veneer, What Should I Say To Them?

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013
Q.

For the past 15 years my front teeth have had vaneers. Every 5-6 years one of them breaks and I go through the process of getting a new one. They never break at the same time and I have had no problems over this time with colour matching or shape.

Recently my front left vaneer broke and I went to my local dentist (different dentist) and she polished my tooth up ready for a new vaneer. She let me choose the colour which perfectly matched my other vaneer. I got a temp for the time being and was told to return in 2 weeks.

On the fitting day I’m sat in the dental chair and are told I’m getting a crown fitted. Not really knowing the difference she slotted it in my mouth, showing me the mirror for 3 seconds and asking if is all is well. At this point I’m like okay looks good. 15 min later I’m in the waiting room wondering why it feels so big (on the back with my tongue) Feels nothing like the back of my other vaneer. It’s huge at the back.

Okay so jump in the car and look in the mirror. WOW. It’s slightly off colour. Can’t believe it. Drive home and here I am looking in the mirror every 5 mins trying to convince myself it’s the same colour. My wife starts asking why my front teeth are different colours now, then tries to convince me it’s difficult to notice.

I’m eagerly awaiting Monday so I can call and discuss this further, but I’m wondering what kind of rights I have here to ask it be sorted.

My Veneers Are Too Large, Can They Be Made To Look More Natural?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi I recently got composite veneers done on 10 of my teeth and am not thrilled with the results, they are not delicate and are way too large for my mouth. My smile appears rather ‘toothy’ and over impactful. I stressed on the importance of natural prior treatment. I am severley disappointed with the results to be hoenst with you, I have thought about taking action but have been advised that there would be no point since I agreed to the treatment etc. It’s just infuriating cosidering the dentist supposedly does it for 80% of Bollywood I figured I was in safe hands but maybe I was a little excited at the prospect of a new smile and didn’t think it through thoroughly enough. I’ve realised his heavy work is only best meant for screen.

Is there anything that can be done?

Thanks

Would It Be Risky For Me To Get Braces?

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi. I am a 34 yr old male considering invisalign for my top and bottom teeth. I am wondering if any dentist who is trained can do the job or if it is preferable to see an orthodontiist? Since it is computer generated, it seems fool proof. However I know someone who has had quite a bad experience with a dentist recently and they were having braces done to straighten teeth. it doesn’t really strike me as the kind of thing that one can mess up. Obviously I don’t know about these treatments though, it’s just that I hadn’t really heard of braces being a source of bad news from a dentist. It always has seemed like the safest treatment that they can offer you in my mind. I suppose on of my questions would be, is there any chance that my teeth can be realigned incorrectly by a dentist? And, also I am wondering if invisalign, clear correct and simpli5 are comparable products? Thank you.

My Jaw Is Still Swollen Following Root Canal Treatment, Is This Normal After Two Days?

Friday, March 15th, 2013
Q.

I underwent an initial root canal treatment for a lower molar on Wednesday 6th March, the dentist also discovered an abscess which he removed.

Two weeks prior to the root canal treatment he x-rayed my tooth and proceeded to fill it, he hadn’t noticed the abscess or the dead root, that sparked my curiosity somewhat and got me thinking, how easy are these to spot? I have never had an abscess before so I didn’t know what my problem was and would have expected the dentist to spot it properly. I am grateful he rectified it though. He then had to remove the new filling and start the initial root canal procedure.

However 2 days later my jaw and glands are still extremely swollen and sore, is this normal, or at least is it to be expected?

I look forward to receiving your response.

Regards.

My Orthodontic Treatment Left Me Unhappy, Can It Be Reversed?

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello,

About 2 years ago I finished orthodontic treatment to have my congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors replaced by my canines and had two of my bottom premolars extracted to have this done. I have since been unhappy with the results and feel like I have had a change in facial shape for the worse (however I am unsure whether this is due to the braces or not). I was wondering if there is any way to undo this treatment in the future so my teeth are where they are meant to be, to replace my missing teeth with implants and whether or not this could improve the shape of my face. I was also wondering if you could estimate how much this would cost as I assume I could not get braces on the NHS again.

Thank you,

I Had A Crown On A Twisted Tooth Now It Is Infected And Causing Pain, Should I Have Had Root Canal Treatment Beforehand?

Monday, March 4th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

My front tooth was very twisted so had some by drilling some of the tooth away and a crown, which looks much better. This was done privately as it was for cosmetic reasons. About 18months later I have had pain and infections but doesnt show up on X-rays. I have been suffering with this for about a year as the dentist just kept saying clean better as there is a pocket that food can get into. I clean thoroughly and regularly and it doesnt help and am still suffering. I was given antibiotics eventually but it didnt work at alll. I have continual pain and much discomfort when I speak. The dentist has recommended specialist root canal treatment but he said due to the very thin root he cannot do it himself. I am normaly an NHS patient so this is becoming very expensive for me. This makes me question should I have been given root canal treatment before the crown?

I would very much appreciate your help.  Thank you.

I Believe My Orthodontist Removed Teeth Incorrectly, Can I Take Any Action?

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Q.

Please Help! I need your advice on what to do. After a long 3 yrs, I finally had my braces removed. I had an over-bite & crowding on top and only crowding on the bottom. Due to this, I had 2-4 molar extractions & now I have spacings in between my teeth(s)! As soon as they were off, I told my ortho about the spacings & was told that if i wear my retainers they would close (It has now been 8 months!!!). I rescheduled an app. to see them & was told that I needed bondings because my teeth(s) were in in their correct position & they couldn’t be moved any closer. So I thought it was fine, I’ll get the work done but to only find out that it had to be paid out of my pocket! Since they were highly recommended, I sincerely trusted them & never questioned their judgement. I’m no expert but I believe that they shouldn’t have extracted anything & if they would’ve known better, they should’ve known that I would have spacing issues from the very beginning (I read that they can actually measure/calculate the size of your teeths to determine that this won’t happen). Now I’m worried that I spent all that money for nothing & I’m gonna have to live with the ugly spacings because of their mistakes.

I Regret Having My Original Teeth Out, What Are My Options Now?

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Q.

I am a class-III under-bite patient. I have undergone a procedure recently during which my 4 upper front teeth were removed recently and doctor gave me Zirconia bridge. This was placed onto my two canines by grinding it right down. My dentist suggested to procedure so I thought it would all work out absolutely fine. At first it seemed okay however later I realised that I have done biggest mistake in my life by removing my original teeth.I realise that I cannot get these back so have tried to gain advice.  I have consulted many other doctors who are suggesting to go for Jaw surgery for correction and then they can place two implants to support new teeth.

Kindly advise me to take the decision please.

Is it Normal To Have Glue Coming Away At Side Of Vaneers?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr, Shaffle, My wife has had fitted zirconia veneer five point bridge fitted on her bottom teeth. There seems to be excessive glue which is yellow brown in colour at the rear which is now beginning to come away. These where fitted approximately six months ago along with zirconia veneers fitted at the top (no bridge at the top) and there are no problems at the top. Is this normal for excessive glue on a bridge to come away and for this to happen?  And why this is happening to her? My wife and myself are getting quite concerned. thank you in advance
