What Can Be Done About My Grandson’s Discolouration?

Friday, November 4th, 2016
Q.

My 12 year old grandson is losing the top layer of his two front teeth. They are really yellow and is affecting his confidence. He has had some treatment at the hospital where they scrape his teeth and paint on a layer. It looks good for a couple of weeks but then deteriorates. Is there anything that can be done? His dentist said not until he is at least 16 when he could possibly have veneers. I have contacted several dentists, they have said the same thing and that it has probably stemmed from his diet as a young child. I disagreed as he had a very good diet and never until this day drinks fizzy juice.

Will Crown Work Damage My Veneers?

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016
Q.

I have veneers on my front upper teeth, but one is a crown. Within a short time, a dark gum line appeared. I want to change the crown for an all porcelain crown as the one I have has a metal core. Will the process damage the veneers either side of it? I had the work done in 2009. I live in London and would like to find an expert in cosmetic dentistry to advise what is best for my situation. My usual dentist is very good, but he does not specialise in cosmetic work.

Can a Gap in My Teeth be Reduced by Veneers?

Friday, May 20th, 2016
Q.

I was born without the right lateral tooth and always had a gap between my front teeth. Now I am too old for braces and I had a rear molar removed in the back upper and the two front teeth have shifted over further, so much that the one front tooth is almost in the place that the lateral tooth should be in, so it is set back. I want to do veneers or Lumineers, but I am not sure what can be done. Please help. I went for a consultation and an orthodontist confirmed I am too old to start shifting teeth around but I already knew that. I left that practice because there was no alternative solution given, except root canal on a perfectly healthy tooth to shave down the length. I believe the gap can be lessened by veneers and if not corrected totally.

Can a Gummy Smile be Corrected Without Braces?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
Q.

At the age of 59, is it possible to correct or improve a gummy smile without braces? What sort of cost and length of treatment would we be looking at? My teeth are OK at the front the rest are heavily filled and crowned. I already have veneers on the top two front teeth. These two teeth are the biggest problem as they sit rather low. Could veneers be made to sit higher on the gums? I do not want braces at my age! And not really keen on going injections I’ve vaguely read about. I would like something permanent.

Can a Crown be Re-Shaped Using Veneers?

Friday, May 13th, 2016
Q.

I broke my front tooth in an accident 20 years ago. It had a metal-ceramic crown. A part of the root was also damaged, for which I had an operation to remove part of the bone from the lingual side.The new crown was very ugly shaped, different to the other tooth. Many dentists fear to remove the crown, others say to have an implant done, which I fear. Is it possible to restore the shape by means of a veneer or Lumineer? A dentist made a restoration with composite, but it is broken now, after many years.

What is the Best Way to Close a Gap in My Teeth?

Friday, May 13th, 2016
Q.

I have a large gap between my 2 front teeth (about 5mm wide) with a piece of skin hanging down between the teeth. What would be the right steps to take in closing the gap fully? I know I will have to have a frenectomy but I don’t know what to do after that because it is such a wide gap. Would it be better to get braces or Invisalign or would cosmetic surgery (veneers) do the trick? Although I have read it’s not usually practical to close such a wide gap with veneers as it can make the front teeth look very wide and unnatural. I’m looking for the quickest (less than 1 year) and cheapest method. Any ideas please?

Could I Have My Veneers Removed and Replaced with Whiter Ones?

Friday, April 29th, 2016
Q.

Dear Sir/Madam.  I had 12 composite veneers fitted – 6 on the top 6 on the bottom. I have chipped one at the front and am very unhappy with them. The dentist matched them to my natural colour which is very yellow! I am not fussed with the bottom row as you can hardly see them but I would like the top row removed and replaced to achieve a very white Hollywood smile like the celebrities.

Do you think this could be done?

Many thanks.

Can Corrective Dental Treatment be Reversed?

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016
Q.

Hi, I had two teeth extracted and my front teeth pushed back when I was a teenager. I’m 38 now and the treatment was to correct an overbite that I had. However, unfortunately my teeth have been pushed too far back in my mouth and now they are hardly visible when I smile. Its affecting my self confidence. My question is, is it possible to reverse this and bring the teeth forward, either with braces or an expander? Thanks.

Could I Pay For Veneers With a Monthly Credit Scheme?

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015
Q.

Hi, I am 50 years old and have nice looking teeth but due to my gums
receding I am starting to lose my teeth. I have 2 teeth near the front of my mouth that need to be removed. They are painful and really loose. I would like to have veneers. I no longer work because of health reasons and my monthly benefit is barely enough to live on. If I have veneers how much would they be and would I be able to pay for them with a monthly credit scheme? Also, do you know of any cheaper option? I know I am limited because I will have no more teeth on that side of my mouth when the 2 teeth next to each other come out.

How Could My Smile Be Improved?

Thursday, August 20th, 2015
Q.

Instead of having 4 front top teeth, I only have 3. What is your recommendation to get a nice smile? I have no gaps/spaces between any of my teeth. My 4th teeth never grew in. I don’t believe I have a 4 tooth at all. I am 36 years old and never take pictures with my family. I have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, and husband. They all love to smile and take pictures, however I don’t. I would love to take a family portrait, but I am not comfortable with showing my teeth. I have recently been going to the dentist to get my cavities taken care of. I would never go to the dentist in the past because I am afraid to let people look in my mouth.
