Why Does My Daughter Have Grey Lines on Her Teeth?

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
Q.

My 17 year old daughter had her braces off and a metal bar put behind the bottom teeth. Soon after, she started to develop grey vertical lines one the teeth with the bar behind it. The colouring came off during teeth cleaning but appeared within a few weeks in the same areas. It is now spreading to the teeth, touching those teeth above. The colouring is the same colour as the silver bar behind her teeth. She had lots of issues with the metal braces, in that her mouth broke out with sores quite a lot while having braces, which the orthodontist said was a sensitivity to the metal. Could the grey/silver vertical stripes be caused by the metal bar? What do we need to do to keep this from coming back?

How Can My Stained and Sensitive Teeth be Treated?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
Q.

Hi, I’ve had really bad acid reflux and the tops of my teeth near the gum looks indented and they are yellow, stained and sensitive.
I’ve gone to my dentist and they have put bonding over a couple, but 4 months on and they seem to be the same as before!
Plus I hate going and it’s effecting me as my teeth look disgusting! I need to know what I can have done and how much roughly it costs?
Regards,

Does Composite Filling Loosen Your Teeth?

Monday, April 27th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I am 23 years old. My front teeth had this black/brownish stain on the joint between the two. So I consulted a doctor an she did a composite filling on my teeth. Now I feel like it will fall off at any moment, it feels like I’ve lost the strength of my teeth. So my question to you is this: Does composite filling loosen your teeth’s strength drastically? What are the disadvantages of having a composite filling? Thank you.

Hi Mark. I Used To Wear Braces But Now My Teeth Are Slipping Back. Would Using Invisalign To Correct This Be Wise?

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I had braces for over 3 years between the ages of 12-15, I struggled to wear my retainer as I should of and as a result, my lateral incisor has started to slip back and regress behind my front teeth. I am now 23 and 3 years ago I decided to get he a direct composite applied to it in order to ‘build up’ the tooth to be in line with my existing teeth. My question is how long does this composite usually last and should I think about getting it replaced? I think the tooth is still regressing and my overbite is more prominent as well, would thinking of getting braces like Invisalign be wise?

I Am An NHS Patient But I Pay Charges For A Scale And Polish. Should I Have To Pay Privately For This Treatment?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. My dentist refuses to polish my teeth after a ‘scale and polish’ saying this is cosmetic only. Can I insist he polishes them or can you tell me where I can go to get the stains removed? I am an NHS patient but pay the charges for a check up and scale and polish. He will carry out a scale but will not polish the stains off the front of my teeth.

Is it possible to have this done under the NHS or would I have to go private? Thank you.

Good Morning. Is There Any Way I Can Whiten My Teeth Without Having To Go To The Dentist?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014
Q.

Good morning Dr Hughes. I want to know how to get rid of stains of my two front teeth. I would really want them whiter but I’m too nervous to go and see the dentist. I’m getting married in 2015 and I would like them to be whiter by then. Is there anything I can try at home? I’m brushing my teeth with pearl shine toothpaste, is there anything else could I try? Can you help me? My parents say I should go to the dentist locally but I’m too nervous. Thank you.

I Seem To Have Tried Everything To Get Rid Of The Stains On My Teeth. What Can I Do To Get My Smile Whiter?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I really hope you can help me. My teeth are stained and no matter what I seem to do, they never get white and I want a perfectly white smile. What would you advise me to do? I tried various toothpastes with baking soda. I even tried using baking soda by itself, I used super smile, it didn’t work. I brush my teeth 2 times a day and brush them for a minimum of 2 minutes. Are there any treatments that could help me with this problem? Thank you for taking the time to listen to me.

My Teeth Are Awful At The Moment. Could You Give Me An Average Quote On The Cost Of Veneers Please?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. Could you tell me how much would it be for veneers for my upper and lower teeth. They are awful at the moment and I need your advice so please help? I’ve got no confidence what so ever I I’m wondering if I can pay for this work in instalments as I don’t have enough money to pay for this in one lump sum. Do you know of anywhere that offers a payment plan? Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.

I Fractured My Teeth When I Was Young And Now The Cracks Are Opening. Could You Offer Me Advice On How To Sort Them Out?

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. When I was a child I was involved in an accident and got run over by a lorry as I hit the ground I landed on my chin braking my jaw both sides and cracking a lot of my teeth. As I was only young and it was hair-line fractures through my teeth I was told there was nothing they could do. But now as an adult and after losing a few teeth all the cracks are opening and it’s only going to get worse. I was a heavy smoker and coffee drinker but I have given them up. Please could you offer some advice as to how I go about sorting them out.

Can Porcelain Veneers Or Bondings Turn My Stained Teeth Into A Beautiful Smile?

Monday, February 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi. I was wondering what approach to take to having a beautiful smile. I have stained teeth and have composite resin fillings on most of my teeth. I had braces and didn’t take good enough care. I was told by one dentist I wouldn’t be a good candidate for porcelain veneers so should I go with bondings? I went to a cosmetic dentist and purchased a teeth whitening product for almost $200. But then I have spots that don’t change color because they are composite resin fillings and they are on the fronts of my teeth.What treatment would you recommend?
