How Long do Lumineers Stay on the Teeth?

Monday, March 16th, 2015
Q.

Hi, I wanted to know how long Lumineers stay on the teeth? Also, if I go for veneers, are they going to grind my original teeth so that I will have no option but to always have veneers on them? Which one is the better option for me? I want to change my smile as I’m not happy with it. Can I have the procedure done on a payment plan? I want to go for Lumineers because I have heard it doesn’t damage your original teeth, but they stay on for shorter time than veneers. I don’t want them to grind my natural teeth though. What should I do?

What Do I Need to Know About Veneers?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. I would like to get veneers. How long do they last? Also, I have read that they file the veneer of your tooth. Would this mean that I would have to replace the veneers? I would like to have the top and bottom set of teeth veneered. How many teeth would this be, and what is an estimate of the cost?

If I was to get dental insurance, would I be able to claim? If so, could you recommend an insurer? Kind regards, I hope you can help me.

I Have Perfect Teeth, But They Don’t Show As Much As I’d Like As My Lips Come Down Too Far. What Can I Do?

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes, I have perfect teeth and lips but when I smile only a quarter of my upper set of teeth are visible. This is really annoying. I think I might have a low lip-line. Please help me to fix this problem. I don’t want to undergo any surgery and I would like to know if there is any way to lower my upper set of teeth so that they are visible when I smile. This is my only problem apart from this I have perfect teeth. If I do this, will my teeth look too long? What can I do? Thank you for your time.

Would Cosmetic Bonding be Suitable For My Daughter?

Thursday, September 18th, 2014
Q.

Good morning Dr Gambroudes, I’m hoping you can offer some advice for my daughter. My daughter is 18 years old, and in the process of having her teeth straightened in a brace. unfortunately my daughter has severe enamel erosion due to over exposure to fruits such as pineapples as a child. She has recently under gone surgery to remove overcrowding. She is very nervous with dentists, which is part of the reason as to why her teeth became a problem. Her teeth are thin in apperance, and on the yellow side. I would like to know if cosmetic bonding can help her? Please help as I’m so worried that she will have no teeth when she grows older.

Are Veneers a Good Option for My Front Teeth?

Monday, September 15th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My front teeth are awful!
A few years ago I had a dental abscess, and I had to have a hole drilled into the front of my front tooth to allow the infection to drain out, and this was then filled in by my dentist. Since then, the tooth has now gone black. My dentist has bleached the inside, but I am still very self conscious about it. Would veneers work for me? I would probably need the 4 front teeth doing.  Do you have any other suggestions? By the way, I am a very nervous patient. I also live in North Wales, with Wrexham or Chester being the nearest town. Thank you.

Could I Get Veneers to Change the Shape of My Teeth?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I have had braces in the past, but my front teeth relapsed slightly after the treatment had finished. I am due to turn 21 this year and I have been unhappy with my 4 top front teeth for a while. I have spent a lot of money on my braces to still be this unhappy. I think my teeth are oddly shaped and they push out from the side. I was considering veneers or something similar, would these be suitable to change the shape of my teeth? I would like some advice on what my options would be. I am not very familiar with veneers or the price range but I am willing to consider my options. Thank you in advance.

I Would Like To Know If I Am A Suitable Candidate For Invisible Aligners Or Other Clear Aligner Treatment?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am wondering if I would be a suitable candidate for Invisible aligners or other clear aligner treatment? I have a moderate over-bite, with the top middle two teeth jutting out slightly further than the next two teeth. There is some over-crowding in the top too, with the teeth next to the top middle ones sitting slightly behind them. At the moment I have temporary veneers on these two teeth to bring them into line (the dentist I was seeing didn’t prep the teeth and put permanent veneers on as I was still considering orthodontic work). However, I don’t like the look of the veneers compared to my own teeth. I would be happy with veneers if they looked more like my own teeth, which are slightly transparent and have texture. Whereas the veneers look a bit dead to me, plastic looking. I had the bottom teeth straightened in my 20s and still have the glued in retainer. Now that I’m older I don’t want to have visible regular braces. I’d be grateful for your advice.

Kind regards.

I Am A Teacher And I Lack Confidence As My Teeth Have Gaps Between Them? Which Treatment Should I Be Looking Into?

Friday, August 1st, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I am 23 years old and the problem is my front teeth. They are coming out a little front and there are gaps between the teeth. Every day they seem to be coming out even further. I am in the profession of teaching which isn’t good because I lack confidence in my teeth. I have consulted my family doctor and he suggested for me to consider clip treatment which takes nearly 2 years, but at this age I am not interested in that treatment. Could you please suggest to me any other form of treatment for this problem other than clip treatment. Waiting for your answer, thank you.

My Teeth Seem To Be Thinning. Is There Another Treatment Out There Which Is Less Invasive Then Dental Veneers?

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. My teeth seem to be thinning a little bit, I have a baby tooth due to the fact my adult tooth has grown in sideways in my gum and I would like them to be whiter. I have considered veneers before but the idea of shaving down my teeth scares me too much. I was wondering if there would be some sort of alternative that would not damage my own teeth so much? Perhaps something that can just be put over the top of them? If so can you provide an approximate price? Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.

Hello Mark, My Teeth Are Out Of Position And I Would To Know If Veneers Treatment Would Help Me?

Monday, July 28th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I just wanted to enquire about getting veneers put on my teeth. My first fang at my left side never came through in is buried behind the back of my front two teeth. I have been to the orthodontist and they have told me that it isn’t touching my root and can be left there. However, this has made my teeth not straight and they are positioned slightly more to the left than I would want. I want to get veneers put on the front to correct my smile and was wanting some help and advice if possible? Thank you in advance.
