Would New Veneers Solve the Problem of Recessed Gums?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

I have severely recessed gums that now expose the substrate below the veneers to my upper jaw.
My lower jaw has five dental implants and a bridge, so the question of receding gums does not apply.
Would new veneers solve the problem, or would implants be the better solution? Giving consideration to the inevitable question of cost and longevity of the success after the procedure, I am also a type 2 diabetic and suffer from Coeliac disease.
Are there any other suggestions you could make to improve the appearance of my smile? With the prolonged receding of my gums I have inevitably lost a number of teeth from my upper jaw as well and although the denture I have conceals some of the problem, they do highlight the areas where the substrate is most visible.

What is the Best Treatment for Dental Fluorosis on the Teeth?

Thursday, September 11th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have dental fluorosis on both of my two front teeth. They are noticeably stained with large circular white marks, one on each of the two teeth. I feel that this affects the overall appearance of my teeth. I am 19 years old and I would really like to fix this problem. Would you recommend something along the line of veneers or Lumineers, or a treatment that is something totally different to veneers? I do not have a problem with the rest of my teeth, it is just the appearance of the front two that I would like to fix. I would appreciate any help you can give.
Thank you.

Is it Normal To Have Glue Coming Away At Side Of Vaneers?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr, Shaffle, My wife has had fitted zirconia veneer five point bridge fitted on her bottom teeth. There seems to be excessive glue which is yellow brown in colour at the rear which is now beginning to come away. These where fitted approximately six months ago along with zirconia veneers fitted at the top (no bridge at the top) and there are no problems at the top. Is this normal for excessive glue on a bridge to come away and for this to happen?  And why this is happening to her? My wife and myself are getting quite concerned. thank you in advance

Will My Crown Match The Colour Of The Vaneer Next To It

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi,
4 years ago I had porcelain veneers fitted to my 2 front teeth and one tooth next to them on the NHS. I have been very happy with them and made lfestlye changes and conducted what I thought was good oral hygeine to care for them.
ONe of my front veneers came off at the weekend and smashed. At my NHS dentist on Monday she said I cant have another veneer as the quality of the tooth underneath isnt good enough so I need a crown.
I’m concerned that a porcelain fused to metal crown is not going to colour match the 2 veneers either side of it. She didnt give me any information about how it would look and dismissed my concerns that a black line would eventually show. Even though I know this to be the case after time!
What would be your advice on how to get the best aesthetics and strength in my front tooth?

Thankyou

My Teeth Are Slightly Out Of Place, Are Braces My Only Option?

Thursday, January 31st, 2013
Q.

My front teeth at the top are out of place and the bottom teeth are squint but typical braces would take much to long and I would rather not have them for years.. is there any methods that I could get that would work faster to give me a nice smile.. And what are the prices for the procedures roughly? I did have a look through your site at all the different treatments But I am still unsure of what would be the best option for myself and I would really appreciate any advice or information you could provide on the topic.

Thank you.

What Should I Do If My Tooth Is Darker Than The Rest

Friday, January 25th, 2013
Q.

I have a dark front tooth after root canal following a blow to the face. My dentist who does not specialise in cosmetics does not want to do internal bleaching as she said the original work was done so well she can’t see the filling. I don’t want an implant or crown as the tooth is in good condition and my dentist is nervous of a veneer as she doesn’t know if the darkness will show through. The original work was done 2 years ago and some days the tooth is darker then others (don’t know why this is) but I don’t believe it is going to get any darker are there any other option

Thursday, January 24th, 2013
Q.

hello Doctor Kalpesh Bohara, I am getting married in 6 weeks! everything was going well and i’m very excited, but last week I chipped my front tooth and like half of it has gone, Its all jagged and feels horrible. Im assuming I will need some sort of cover over it, like a Veneer or something, Basically I want to know if I can get this sorted before the wedding and if there is an option of paying in kind of instalments, because I dont have a lot of money spare at the moment because of the wedding, Any advice you can give would be much appreciated, Thank you

What Should I Do About My Impacted Teeth?

Thursday, January 24th, 2013
Q.

I am 26 years old and have impacted canine teeeth in the gum and my baby canine’s remainin intact with some wear. I was wondering if I could get Veneers over the baby canines? I am not confident that getting the impacted canines taken down is worth my time or money at this age as the bones from my understanding are pretty fused at this point. Furthermore I’d have to get braces which is way out of my price range and comfortability!
So are Veneers or are implants the better option? Please help!

Should I Get My Teeth Whitened?

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013
Q.

Hi there I just wanted to know whether teeth whitening will be useful for my teeth because all my teeth are trimmed at the front except my back teeth which dnt really show when I smile or talk and my dentist has told me there is no point of me getting the teeth whitening because teeth whitening is to usually improve the colour of your teeth and my teeth and not just yellow in the front but are trmmed/cut off too. And whenever i go to my dentist all they do is a filling on the teeth that are trimmed and the filling falls out after a week or two which doesn’t really help that much, i want something to be more strong, permanent even. im actually really stressed about my teeth i just want them to be nice and white just like everybody else. And because my teeth are yellow i lack a lot of confidence, i cant see or meet new people becasue im too embarrassed because of my teeth. what else is there that I can do other than teeth whitening if that will certainly not help? Or can I just do the teeth whitening and it will help me? Please do let me know i really want something to be done about my teeth i will appreciate it very much. Thank you!

What Vaneers Should I Have?

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Doctor ritten Patel, I am currently living in australia and am thinking of going to Delhi to get porcelain veneers done. Can you give me any guidance you can give me about types of veneers. (Which ones are more successful and preferred by people ect..) So that i can look out for them when choosing the type of veneer and also if you know of any particular dentist you can recommend. Also how long do vaneers usually last. I have large gaps in my teeth and they are naturally a yellowy colour. I’m unhappy with the way they look and think that vaneers will improve my smile most effectively. I am  also concerned how much of the tooth enamel will be affected as well. Do you think vaneers are suitable for my condition and Are there cheaper alternatives?

Thank you Doctor, I look forward to reading your response.
