How Much Would It Cost to Have Veneers Placed On All My Teeth?

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had many problems with my teeth since I fell pregnant with my son. As time has passed, they have become worse. I have cracks in my teeth and I’m starting to get pains in my mouth. As well as having these problems, I’ve become very self-conscious. As a mother of two children, it’s hard to have my children see my teeth when I get them to look after theirs. I wondered how much it would cost to have all of my teeth veneered? Also, if you arrange any payment plans? Thank you.

I’m Concious Of My Smile Now That My Crowns Have Dropped. What Can I Do To Fix This?

Friday, April 11th, 2014
Q.

Dear Mark. I have 2 post crowns on the upper right 1 and 2. The 2 crowns have dropped and they are now longer than the rest of my teeth. They have been like this for a little while. As far as I know there is no reason for them to have dropped. There is no movement of the crowns they have just dropped. I am very conscious of it and try not to smile as much. Can the crowns be filed down so they are the same length as the rest of my teeth or will I have to get replacements? If so, would I need to have new posts as well? I have been to the dentist who took X-rays and he said that they are fine and ‘well stuck in’. He gave me no help what so ever, he just wanted to get the next patient in. Any information you could give me would be gratefully received. Thanks.

I Don’t Want A Gap, What Could I Do To Replace My Broken Tooth?

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013
Q.

I have a broken tooth which has been filled. My dentist informs me there is insufficient tooth remaining for a crown, or cap as these are likely to break off which may be dangerous as I may swallow it and choke. Also, as there is only one tooth to one side of it (top upper right) my dentist says a bridge would not be suitable. I can not afford an implant and do not want a gap. Is there anything else that could be done?

Can My Teeth Be Restored With Cosmetic Work Rather Than Being Extracted?

Monday, April 29th, 2013
Q.

I went to my dentist this week as I have 2 decayed upper left 7&8,  a missing lower left 3 and missing up left 4. My front right 1 has a distal chip right down the edge. I am very embarrassed of my teeth an am getting married in August. I asked my dentist if she could do me some veneers or crowns or bridges and all she said she would do is extract I really don’t want this.i am a NHS patient and don’t know where to turn now. I don’t want to lose any more
teeth. She wouldn’t even offer me composite fillings for my front teeth she just tried to push dentures and I do not want them. Can you suggest anything I can do? I’m so upset.

I am worried about the discolouration on the front of my teeth

Monday, January 21st, 2013
Q.

Hello,
I visited a dentist (approx 3 years ago) when I was visiting my parents in Australia who told me that I had the beginings of interdental caries on every tooth (showing only on Xray). I am now concerned about some discolouration on my front tooth which looks like a new cavity is beginning. I know I should probably visit my own NHS dentist for the moment. But thinking of the long run, can veneers be put in place even when there are the beginnings of decay? My teeth are not so bad that others would notice unless their attention was drawn and they were to look very closely at my teeth.
I am just constantly worried about my teeth and the future of my teeth as I am only 25 but have always brushed twice a day and now floss and use mouthwash daily.
Any info would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

I have received a lot of dental treatment recently that has left me in a lot of pain, do I now need to seek further treatment?

Thursday, December 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi,
Back in April, I managed to break a back molar (second back top left) All wisdom teeth removed several years ago.
The tooth is directly above a gold crown.
The tooth required root canal treatment and a crown.
I had a silver crown fitted originally, which caused a severe metallic reaction, and was changed for a porcelain crown.
The first split on fitting, and the second has now been in place since August.
The tooth feels very large and bulges out on both sides.
It is very uncomfortable rather than painful, but I am constantly aware of it’s presence, rubbing my gum and tongue.
There is a throbbing sensation, and as I say, and constant awareness of it.
Whilst receiving treatment, the dentist said I had errosion to my two front teeth and applied a substance over them, which is rough, and also has a groove on the top of the left front tooth, and they kind of click. when I talk and eat.
I have not needed any dental treatment for twenty years, and have had this tratment leaving me feeling as though my mouth is not my own.
Given the trouble and time spent on sorting this (I had to take lots of time off work) I would welcome your opinion if its something I have to put up with, or seek further trattment.
Thank You

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011
Q.

I had a root canal in #3 and had a crown put on 9-09 at which time my dentist removed the crown which had been on 6mo. He then put a post in. This tooth never felt right. Ater he removed the permanent crown he then put it back on.7-10 I had pain went back to tell him of the pain in that tooth. Now he tells me there is a lrg decay and the tooth must be extracted along with #2 I am so upset.I feel he was totally neligent.
