Why Won’t My Dentist Remove My Loose Teeth?

Friday, July 19th, 2013
Q.

Hi Mark. I have very loose 2 front teeth which have been nearly knocked out so I now haven’t got no nerves going through them which makes them look sort of see through. I think they’re dying. I asked my dentist to remove them but she refused (she said they’re fine but I can see and feel how loose they have become) so I am now looking for veneers now if you can help me please as I don’t think I could cope with a palate denture. I feel that veneers are the best solution for me and I think I’ve got all of my other teeth really white just these 2 at the front, which are letting me down now and depressing me so bad. I’m not sure how I can go about getting them fixed and I’m not sure who I should visit about this now as I feel my dentist doesn’t really care that much about helping me, especially when I went about my loose teeth.

Can I make my teeth better without harming the tooth surface?

Friday, November 30th, 2012
Q.

Hello! I’m 17 and I have bad teeth. I had my root canal done on the front tooth (it hurt sometimes, not sure if It’s normal). I’m emarrassed to go to the dentist because I’m too young to have such bad teeth..I really like the shape of my teeth, but they’re not white…actually, I’m kind of obsessed with my teeth and I don’t feel comfortable. Also they are demineralized so my dentist told me that I’ll never be able to do the teeth whitening. Hope you can help me! Is there any chance that MY teeth can be beautiful without any veneer or drilling the surface (enamel). Please help me!

Is it the usual practise to leave teeth without veneers after caps have been removed?

Monday, May 28th, 2012
Q.

Hi

I am interested in getting porcelain veneers fitted, but am hesitant as I have been told I have to get my plastic caps drilled off first and wait two weeks to have my veneers fitted. My teeth underneath had worn away due to acidity and so do not have much enamel left after drilling and being capped.

My caps are on my four front top teeth so do not want to be without front teeth for this long.

I would like to know if it is possible to take off my plastic caps and have veneers fitted in one session. And also the price per tooth and location.

I look forward to hearing from you.

My new dental crown does fit along the gumline, should I be worried?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012
Q.

My lower right 3er molar whit a big metal filling inside, cracked just up to the gum line. The dentist did a porcelain crown on metal. He said he did not want to trim the sides of the tooth too much therefore the porcelain crown border is almost 2mm over the gum line next to the cheek inside, exposing the tooth between the crown border and the gum. Instead the crown border is precisely at the gum line in the other side next to the tongue.
Is not dangerous to leave the tooth exposed between the crown border and the gum line?
Or is it worse to trim more the tooth?.Thank you for any information

I have accidentally removed a lot of tooth enamel, is there anything I can do?

Friday, August 19th, 2011
Q.

I have been using high strength ascorbic acid for two weeks. The bottle says brush teeth after use. I have and now I have removed lots of enamel off my teeth. I am in so much pain. How long will this pain last and how long does it take to remineralise the teeth. My dentist is unsure of the degree of loss and has painted temporary varnish to heal my teeth. How long does it take the teeth to remineralise or will I suffer forever. My teeth are very see through.

Help Iam getting married in three weeks and before this had lovely teeth. I am so upset.

Thank you for your time

Can you have your teeth tattooed?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes
Can you please tell me if it is possible to have a tattoo on the teeth ,All the information i have read so far seems to imply that a tattoo can only occur on the soft tissue ,ie on the lips ,tongus ,pallete,skin,etc .
I would also like to know the reason why a dentist would do an amalgum filling then cover it with a porcelain crown .
I look forward to your reply
Thankyou for your time and for considering my question.

I’m worried that teeth whitening will ruin my teeth.

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dentist

My question is regards to whitening � Is Hydrogen Peroxide bad for your teeth or whitening in general does it cause cavities if you used say 30% in house bleaching?
I am confused because it is a weak acid so why do we use it on whitening?

Does a high percent of Hydrogen Peroxide not cause cracks in teeth or make them matte/loose their shine?

How does whitening work? thank you for your time
