Will a Temporary Filling Harm a Newly Fixed Broken Tooth?

Thursday, February 12th, 2015
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes. My son broke his front teeth which affected the pulp area as well.We had restoration work done on the same day. His next appointment is in six months.But now he is left with the uneven restoration layer and obviously it doesn’t look good at all. I was told to wait for the nerve healing process to play out but for the time being he’s not getting his smile back.
I would like to ask if a pleasant temporary filling is possible while we are waiting for it to heal, or will it disturb the healing process? Thank you.

My Son’s Crown Fell Off. Should He Get Another Crown or an Implant?

Friday, January 30th, 2015
Q.

Good afternoon. My son who is 24 fell as a child and broke one of his two front teeth. A local dentist gave him an amateur-ish crown which has never looked right. Yesterday it fell off and he isn’t sure if the way forward is a new crown or an implant. However, money is a slight problem and I don’t know how much it would cost or who could do the procedure . He is speaking at my mum’s funeral on February 3rd and is devastated that it will look dreadful! Please can you advise? I’m worried mother as you hear so many dreadful stories of cosmetic surgery going wrong.

I Recently Got New Crowns, But Now I Have A Lisp And They Feel Too Big For My Mouth. What Should I Do About This?

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I went to my dentist so I could get a great smile but now I don’t even smile now and I hate talking as I have a lisp. The dentist put your new crowns along the top but one of the crowns is blue/grey in colour and I feel my teeth are too big and bulky for me. I hate speaking as have a lisp, so now not only do I not have the perfect smile but I can’t talk properly now either. I went back to my dentist and he said – Oh, I think they are fine and that I was paranoid when referring to my lisp. I am very upset about this and I would like to know what can be done. Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer me.

My Dentist Has Told Me That My Lower Teeth Are Down To The Dentine. I Am Unaware Of What To Do About This Problem. Any Advice?

Thursday, October 31st, 2013
Q.

I had my 2 front teeth crowned about 26 years ago and they are still okay. However at a recent check up my dentist told me that I was down to the dentine on my lower teeth and this was caused by the crowns. I am to be fitted with a night guard – do you think this is simply a stop gap – as my dentist did mention that the expensive option of having them all capped would probably be the best solution. I have some teeth missing already but am unsure of what could be done on the NHS and do you think this cost would be per tooth? I will have to save like mad but I’m not sure what I am looking at for the best results really. Any help would be gratefully received.
