Which Treatments Can Push My Teeth Forward?

Monday, September 12th, 2016
Q.

Hello,

I have had fixed braces for the past couple of years and am desperately unhappy with the results. The orthodontist suggested extractions and then to close the gaps. I began getting concerned during the treatment that my teeth were going very far back. He assured me that the back teeth would come forward to close the gaps and that the front teeth wouldn’t go any further back. This of course wasn’t the case and I am very unhappy with my smile. He has been using springs to move the teeth forward a bit. But it isn’t really helping much. I took my top bar out a while back to push my teeth forward with my tongue and this helped a bit in pushing my top teeth forward. Please advise on a treatment that can push my teeth forward.

Will a Single Veneer Improve My Smile?

Friday, October 2nd, 2015
Q.

Hello. I have one tooth on the top set that is set back from the other front two teeth, making it look like a really small tooth spot and when I have pictures taken, on one side it can look like the tooth is missing all together. It really is knocking my confidence. I can’t smile properly without being nervous. I have seen pictures of other patients with teeth worse than mine and they have veneers. Will a single veneer sort this out? Thank you.

Should I Seek a Second Opinion About My Brace Treatment?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello,

I am currently on the Six Month Smiles treatment. It’s been 8 months and my dentist claims it’s only my bottom jaw that needs more time. I feel my top jaw isn’t straightened to my satisfaction with one of the incisors still a bit wonky and one canine still sticking out a bit. My dentist insists the wonky incisor is due to the shape of the tooth and the canine is if anything over-corrected, but I’m just not satisfied when I look in the mirror. Is it worth seeking a second opinion?

Can My Middle Teeth be Straightened so They are Central and Correct?

Friday, February 6th, 2015
Q.

I have a middle line tooth. My two middle teeth are off set to the right, causing my tooth to be centred in my mouth line. Is there anything that can be done to straighten the middle two to have them central and correct? Thank you. I had braces when I was younger to push them over but it didn’t work. My teeth are too big for my mouth and I’m missing an incisor on one side, so this is what causes the teeth and centre line not to be straight. I know Tom Cruise suffers from the same problem! If that helps for a visual aspect.

Thursday, September 18th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. What can I do about my situation? I have an extremely misaligned teeth, and it’s very embarrassing to smile. How much would it cost to get my misaligned teeth straightened? My teeth look like a zigzag road on both the top and the bottom, and I really think I’d need an extreme makeover to transform my smile. What am I supposed to do to achieve this? I’m  28 years old, and I’d ideally like a short-term teeth-straightening solution. The problem is, I don’t know if I can afford the cost of that kind of straightening treatment. what would you suggest the best treatment for me would be? Thanks.

I Used To Wear Braces But Now My Teeth Are Moving And Are No Longer Straight. Can I Get New Braces At A Reasonable Price?

Thursday, May 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi there. I have just turned 27 years old. I used to wear braces when I was in school, the ones with the single mental line, which I could take out and put back in whenever I liked. Due to personal circumstances dental treatment stopped. As the years have gone by especially in the last few years I have noticed they are moving and are not straight. I have a job but I’m receiving working tax credit. I’ve always put dental treatment off due to costs. But now I really want braces as it’s effecting my self esteem. I was wondering what would be the best way to go about getting them at a reasonable price. Thank you.

Would The Inman Aligner Help In Closing The Gaps In My Upper Set? How Much Would It Cost Me?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I would like to find out the cost for the Inman Aligner system. I’ve read up about this and says cost per treatment £1250-£2500?
So for instance if I went along with this, how often would I have go for treatments for example, if I went for 4 treatments could end up paying around £6,000? It’s really for my front teeth which protrude and there are few gaps on upper front teeth. Plus, would this help in closing gaps in my upper teeth? Can you assist with my query please. Thanks.

I’d Like To Straighten My Incisors. I Am Investigating Invisalign But I’d Like A Cheaper, Faster Alternative?

Monday, April 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel, I’d like your advice. Both my upper lateral incisors are set back about 0.5cm behind my front teeth. One sits on my lower incisor, the other just behind.
I had a removable brace as a teen, 10 years ago and after 2 years of diligently wearing it, I got told he may have made a mistake!
I would like to know what options I now have for correcting this? I am investigating Invisalign, but I’d like to know if there is a cheaper, faster alternative?
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to your reply.

I Have 7 Gaps That Need Closing In. What Type Of Procedure Would Do This And Am I Too Young?

Monday, March 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello, I am 13 years old and I just want the gap in the front of my teeth to close in. It’s not that big but you can tell it’s there and also the sides of my teeth have gaps in them. I was just wondering how much would it cost just to have my front gap filled in and how much would it be to get all of of it done and also how long would this procedure last, are there any side affects? There are 7 gaps all together. How much would that be altogether? Is it it legal to have it done at my age? Many thanks.
