Hi, I’m wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I’m 28 years old and I only have front teeth. They all have fillings. I suffered as a child with gum disease and never treated it. I really regret now as my face is sunken on both sides and I only have my front teeth to chew on, I’m in need of a teeth makeover but cannot afford to do this. I paid for a private denture for top and bottom but they have taken it down as much as they can. I’ts horrible, I would like implants. I am at the end of my teather, it makes me depressed and all I would like is a full mouth of teeth so I can chew like everyone else. The ones at front with fillings are all discoloured and you can tell I have fillings in front teeth by a mile off. Please, is there anything I can do or anyone that could or would be willing to give me a mouth makeover?

Will it be possible to have veneers for my front teeth? I have gum disease problem, lost bone in my jaw and have lost a few teeth so my dentist from the NHS made dentures on the top side of my jaw. It feels weird, I have speech problem and I feel so depressed and not confident. I asked him if at one stage I can have implant, but he said no because I lost bone in my jaw. I am unhappy. How much will it cost me? Thank you.
My dentist says I need a crown because my back tooth is cracked, and I have a gap between this and the next tooth where a tooth was taken out many years ago. Also he says I will need a part denture to fill the gap so there is no pressure on the tooth that is to be crowned, which I don’t really want. He said if I had a bridge he would have to shave my other teeth down, so they are all the same size. My question is: could I not just have a crown? It is so expensive to have both done. How long would a crown last on its own, or are there any other options?
One of my front teeth is shorter than the other. I was told they couldn’t file down the longer one any more. What can I do to make the short tooth longer? I had braces twice, spending a lot of money without results. I don’t want to get braces again and my dentist doesn’t know what to tell me. He referred me back to an orthodontist. He says that one tooth outgrew the other, and I’ve never broken my tooth. The last orthodontist had them the same length, but the retainer didn’t keep the one tooth from growing longer than the other. Thank you.
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.
Hi. I want to get my 2 front teeth taken out and fake ones put in. My 2 front teeth stick out, so I want them out and two false ones to replace them so they are straight. How much would I be looking at and how do I go about it? Could I get this done in one sitting? I hate my teeth and need them doing as soon as possible. Also, can you be put to sleep? Because don’t like the thought of being awake when getting my teeth pulled out. Thank you.
How much would it cost to replace the four lower incisors with a bridge off the two lower canines?
I have an upper palate that the lower middle incisors hit when I bite. I have lost one of the incisors already and another is working loose. I have been informed that the bone is not strong enough for implants. Apparently the bone has receded and the wider incisors are not strong enough to support the bridge.
Hi there. I am looking for a temporary snap-on-smile for my upper teeth, in particular whereby I only have 2 full teeth left in the front. The rest are stubs (5), including both incisors. I will eventually be going down the dental implant route therefore I don’t want to spend £100s or even £1000s on a cosmetic dental plan. Looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience! By the way, the pull-down gives me a list of 7 dental doctors and I’d like to chat/speak with one most knowledgeable on this subject…thanking you!
I have had a Maryland bridge since 1991/92. It has been fine until the last month or so. It started to become painful and uncomfortable for some reason and I could feel the metal at the bottom of the tooth it was attached to. I have always tried to keep the area flossed over the years and recently used the little brushes from the chemists, but there has been an area at the top/back which I have not been able access. Question 1) has the cement started to crumble?
Question 2) I would like to know, is it possible put my same bridge back? As its a perfect match.
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.
