What are my options for the treatment of a broken tooth at the front of my mouth?

Q.
my tooth(milk) is half broken since i was 15 years old and i did not go to a dentist at that time. it is now decaying and stinking,i am an university student and i have to do a lot of presentations and my tooth is causing a problem since the half broken teeth is found in the front of my mouth and it is visible. what i would like to know is that, can permanent tooth be grown at the age of 20?i still got my milk tooth and it is decaying. so will my permanent tooth grow when i will remove the milk tooth at this age or will i have to replace a tooth? Everyone is suggesting me to replace the one tooth. the dental implants is costing a lot and your advice would be a great help to me. Thanks in advance
A.
Please get a dentist to xray that area and see whether you have a permanent tooth present under the bone. If so, you can then possibly get the tooth orthodontically moved into position. If the permanent tooth is missing, you can have the space restored with
1. A denture tooth
2. A dental bridge
3. A dental implant

I have a badly broken/rotten front tooth and the adjoining front tooth as also now split length ways. What can i do, i dont want to be like an old person with teeth that can be taken out and accidently slip like you see on tv (the bridges sound horrid) and whilst implants seem like my only option, my worry and concern is the cost and going to the Dentist….and then breaking down in tears, i’m worried that they will definitely suggest the top front teeth be removed …but how can i possibly go to work with two very noticable front teeth missing…for months before work on an implant can take place…I cant bring myself to going to the dentist, through childhood fear and the sheer anxiety of being told off for not flossing or whatever they chose to say…I cant hide away at work….so what am i to do, i feel sick just thinking about it and its so depressing and yes i never smile without closed lips but when I talk or laugh everyone will see…and then come the questions and the embarissment and so on.

Im really depressed, my dog knocked my front tooth out, im unemployed but would like to know if u know of a cosmetic dentist near southall london would do 0% finance over a longer period of time so at lower rate each month. I don’t care how long it takes me to pay off. Plrez help me get my confidence and self esteem back. In my younger years i over brushed my teeth and suffered from eating dizorders, due to this my teeth became weak and ive lost alot of my back teeth too, it would be great if i could get all sorted.

Join the club! Many of us have lost a tooth, or teeth, through our own actions or not. But unfortunately all health systems consider implants, veneers and a few other procedures to be cosmetic rather than for health reasons. And many people don’t have the money to pay the high cost of replacing even one.
In fact one dentist I saw years ago, was so afraid of quoting the price of the implant alone that he wrote it down on a piece of paper and pushed it across the table. Talk about gutless.
So I have been without three teeth until recently, when I saved the money up to afford it.
Also you won’t find a loan for 0% financing. Who wants to loan out money they make no profit on? That’s unrealistic.
It’s best to search for a low interest loan but expect to possibly pay $3000 to $5000 for it in case you need bone grafting, which is most likely since you have had no tooth there for some time.
Start now at researching local dentists that are qualified to do all the procedure at one time making it less expensive. Just take responsibility and don’t expect to get something for nothing because you have low self esteem. Most with missing teeth have it too. Research several dentists! I cannot emphasize this enough!
