What is the best treatment available for centre line correction?

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012
Q.

My top teeth are not centred so I have my right front in the centre of my smile. I am not a candidate for braces as the problem is too severe. Please could you tell me the best (considering cost) correction method. I am considering veneers and understand they will shave a lot of my teeth away. Would this be a problem?
If I go ahead with this procedures, is it something I could do in stages? This would break the cost down. I could have my teeth whitened to the same shade of the veneers so the alterations are not overly obvious?
I clearly need lots of guidance. I have seen a few dentist and have been quoted £12,000 as a basic cost. This is not an option for me. I really need help.

My parents want me to receive my brace treatment in Pakistan, would I be able to have check-ups in the UK?

Monday, September 3rd, 2012
Q.

well my problem is that i want to have braces put in, however my parents want them to be done in Pakistan. And they also think that i have to stay there for the whole treatment (e.g check ups etc.). i just want to know if dentist in London would do my check ups instead of me staying there, because college is starting soon and i do not want to miss out. i need to know before my dad heads off back to Pakistan. and oh can you please help me, i got discolored teeth, they are because of lack of calcium my dentist said. i want to know how to hide them before i do a crown and veneer treatment! thanks for reading hope to hear from you soon!

My upper 4 front teeth are protruding, what would be the best type of treatment for me?

Friday, August 31st, 2012
Q.

Hello, I am male and 21 years old. My upper front four teeth have drifted outside alignment by about 1.5 cm from their normal position. I want to make them shift back to their normal position. I have heard about some available treatments relating to this problem but i am still getting confused about what to do and what steps to take next. What can kind of treatments do you think will help me? are braces helpful in all situations? and what are the other available treatments that can be beneficial for me?. can a bridge be placed to replace the teeth instead or is that a silly idea? what do you think? I need all the help I can get so thank you.

I’m scared that after having braces some other dental issue will come up! What should I do?

Friday, August 31st, 2012
Q.

Hello Doctor Moore! I am a little worried about going to get my teeth fixed. The bottom canines are crooked and when I close my mouth, my top teeth sit over my bottom ones (Is that considered an over bite?) I am worried about the procedure and the pain I would have to endure when receiving dental treatment (I have dental phobia too). I am also worried in the case of just asking for my teeth to be be straightened out would of course lead to having them re-aligned but the dentist finding further complications too. I hope I haven’t confused you with this information! (: As usual we all have financial worries so anything regarding payment options would be great!! Thank you (: (:

Some of my adult teeth didn’t come through and now I have large gaps in my smile, what can I do to fix this?

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012
Q.

Hello, I just require some general advice please. When I was 18 I was told I needed 3 baby teeth taken out (two at top and one right bottom, all second premolars), so I went to hospital to have them taken out. I am now 25 and the adult teeth never did come through which has led to all the teeth close by to spread out and cause enormous gaps, also I now have a large gap in my front teeth, I did have a free consultation a few years ago but I was told that to have the teeth fixed it would cost me around £3,000. Is there anything else I can do or is there a cheaper way to fix this problem? I’m really self concious about my smile. Thanks for your time.

Do you think I’d be a suitable candidate for Invisalign?

Monday, August 20th, 2012
Q.

Dear Doctor,
I have an overbite (of~8mm) and my upper front teeth are not vertical, but protruding a little bit (bucked teeth). The 8 mm overbite is mainly due to the inclination of the front teeth I think. If it is vertical I believe it would be only around 4 mm.
Do you think it would be possible for me to be a candidate for ClearPath or Invisalign braces? Currently I am not living in US. So I dont know who/how to consult now. But I have some X-Ray images and some photos. Can I send these to some e-mail address, so that I can get an early feedback from you..?
I am not looking for a perfect bite. I will be more than happy, if my teeth are straight and no gaps, I feel braces are my best option. What do you think? Thank you for your time.

Can my overbite be fixed with dental veneers?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

I have an overbite. Both my top and bottom teeth jut out. I’ve been having on and off ortho work done for years and years. But turns out my doctor was a quack. And they are still not fixed. They are due to the fact that my teeth r just too big for my mouth. My bottom teeth are very close together not fully overlapping but the edges are very close and slightly overlap each other. I want to know if this all can be fixed with veneers. All the jutting, the crowdedness, all of it and I’m willing for them to shave down my teeth for as long as my lips fall on my teeth a lot nicer when closing and for a gorgeous smile. Can this happen? What do I ask for?

I’m 16 and I have bad teeth, I can’t afford veneers so what are my options?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012
Q.

Hello dr moore. I am 16 years old and i am really suffering because of my very bad teeth. They are very discoloured despite me trying lots of different tooth whitening treatments, I also have an overbite and individual teeth lay on top of each other or are crooked meaning they are chipped too. There are just soo many problems and now I really hate smiling and meeting new people. I asked my dentist about braces and she said I would have to pay because I am not classed as a severe case as I only want them to “look good”. As you can tell this is really upsetting me because my self esteem is so bad. I can’t afford veneers so what can I do?! Please give me some advice!

My dentist is closing my missing teeth gaps with braces but I want dental implants. What should I do?

Friday, November 4th, 2011
Q.

Hello there, I would like a second opinion on my orthodontic treatment! When I was 10 years old I extracted my first molar/left lower jaw as it was so decayed, the empty socket, overtime shrinked and caused my face to be uneven! When I was 17 years old, I had to remove the rest of the First molars (upper left/upper right/lower right) because of decay! Today I am 22 years old and I can notice that I am starting to age prematurely as the gaps from the molar extractions are starting to shrink, causing my face to lose its structure, hollow eyes, “collapsing face ” kind of effect so I was thinking to have bone graft (as I lost serious bone) and then dental implants. But there is one small problem! I started my orthodontic treatment 1 year ago, for a severe malocclusion from where I will have to have jaw surgery to complete the treatment. At the start of the treatment I mentioned to my orthodontist I would like to keep the (molar extraction) gaps open so I can have dental implants but at my appoiment yesterday she said she wants to close the gaps and that’s what we’ve been doing all along during the treatment. I don’t feel is a good idea as my teeth and jaw are very small anyway and I’m scared this will make it even worse../Plus looking in the mirror and seeing my face changing I don’t like what I see/aging prematurely. Now, my questions are: Is it a good idea for my orthodontist to close the gaps? If it’s not, with orthodontic treatment is she able to stretch the gaps back to original shape so I can have the dental implants? If yes, will I be able to have the dental implants during the orthodontic treatment or after/during the jaw surgery? Thank you very much!
