One of my roots is exposed due to my recent implant placement, how can I protect it from further exposure?

Thursday, August 16th, 2012
Q.

hi, I don’t know who to talk to about this so my problem is that one of my roots of one of my teeth has been exposed partially as a result of a bit of an unfortunate incident with a dental implant placement (next to it). This happened in the upper jaw tooth number 4. How can i protect the root from further exposure? Would bonding or resin be suitable? what would be other methods to protect it? As it is a side effect of the surgery I would expect the dental surgeon to cover the cost so do not have to be very tight I would imagine It is just 3 mm long exposure but it does not look very nice and i had the implant done to improve my smile

Would veneers work to hide brown stains on teeth?

Thursday, August 16th, 2012
Q.

hello doctor moore,  i need some advice from you as i am really suffering. i have brown stains on my bottom teeth and i’ve tried everything to get them away but with no success. i have a denture but only 2 teeth at the back of my teeth are clear from decay. and ive got 2 types of arthritis so my teeth look like they are fading in colour now. can you help me smile again? how much will it cost me? i am disabled due to my arthritis and house bound. i am 40 and really don’t feel like smiling cause of my teeth. i think veneers would be good for me as they would brighten my smile and make me feel happier. i don’t think i need any teeth replacing so can you advise me on the cost? thanks.

My teeth were straight until my wisdom teeth started to come through, how can I resolve this problem?

Monday, August 13th, 2012
Q.

Hi there.

My teeth used to be perfectly straight until my wisdom teeth started growing in.

They are unable to grow properly because there isn’t enough room. Now I have a distinct overlap in my front two teeth. I have been advised that if I have my wisdom teeth removed then this may help resolve the problem – is this correct?

I am getting married in May 2013 and I was wondering how long it would take to straighten them and how much it would cost.

Thank you.

Is it possible to have the Invisalign treatment when my wisdom teeth are starting to come through?

Friday, August 10th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I have recently looked into the invisalign option to straighten six of my top front teeth, and was wondering if you could help me please. A recent dental x-ray revealed I have four wisdom teeth ready to grow out, all seemingly straight. (my dentist told me the top two and bottom right are fine; the bottom left is slightly tilted.) Is it possible to have invisalign whilst wisdom teeth are coming through, and is it possible to have the invisalign made to fit only over the teeth I require straightening, instead of the full set of top teeth?
Thank you.

I have a tooth inside my upper gum, should I get it removed?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

I have never been confident about my teeth, which results to me talking less and smiling without revealing my teeth. I find it hard to get along everyday life.

I have a tooth literally on my upper gum, it’s been there since I was about 10, is there any possible way I can get it removed? How much would it be? The tooth isn’t rotten or anything, it doesn’t hurt either, but it can be a bother sometimes.
Adding on “Hollywood” teeth straightening and whitening? How long will the process take? How much will everything cost together?

Before I go ahead with the Maryland Bridge treatment, can I have tooth coloured wings to blend with my natural teeth?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi, I wondered if you could help me?
I am looking into having a Maryland bridge fitted to replace my current bridge but the only thing that is putting me off is the metal wing type things . I am aware that you cannot see them viewing it from the front however I was more concerned with them being on show once I laugh or open my mouth. Is is possible to have the metal colour made in tooth colour so that the wings blended in with my natural teeth? I would feel very self-conscious if you could see the bridge. My current bridge is towards the back of my mouth.
Thank you for your time.

I hate my sunken smile, how can I fix this?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

Hi doctor,i have a couple of questions. I had braces and had my 4 teeth extracted because i was not going to have enough space for my teeth to straighten out and with no teeth taken out my teeth were going to be to crowded and my lips were going to be sticking out to much( since i have thick lips). It was 2 from the top and 2 from the bottom and had no wisdom teeth cause they were taken out all 4 long time ago. My gums were being pulled back to close the gaps of the extracted tooths. At the end, all my teeth were straight but now my mouth looks like its sunken and my lips dont show anymore. I would like to have my lips back.Can the gums go back to where they were before and the same with the teeth? I know that i will be having the gap open, but is there a way i can have my teeth straight, and my lips outward without having my mouth looking sunken. Everytime i smile my teeth are straight but my smile looks sunken and my lips too, i dont like my smile.Know i wish i hadn’t taken any teeth out even if they were crooked. I had advised my orthodontist that i din’t wanted for my mouth to look sunken but there was nothing else to do, it was too late, the gaps were not yet closed. Do i need to consider tooth implant?How can this be fix. Please help me. Thank you for your time.

Can you tell me the difference between standard veneers and the new ultra-thin veneers?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

Do thin veneers like lumineers fitted to teeth with no shaving make the teeth look thick ? Are they always preferable to standard porcelain veneers which involve shaving off more of the tooth ? Please can you advise the pros and cons of standard veneers versus the new thin veneers currently available. For long lasting, natural looking stain resistant teeth, which of the market leaders such as lumineers, mac or da Vinci do you recommend please ?

Can my overbite be fixed with dental veneers?

Monday, August 6th, 2012
Q.

I have an overbite. Both my top and bottom teeth jut out. I’ve been having on and off ortho work done for years and years. But turns out my doctor was a quack. And they are still not fixed. They are due to the fact that my teeth r just too big for my mouth. My bottom teeth are very close together not fully overlapping but the edges are very close and slightly overlap each other. I want to know if this all can be fixed with veneers. All the jutting, the crowdedness, all of it and I’m willing for them to shave down my teeth for as long as my lips fall on my teeth a lot nicer when closing and for a gorgeous smile. Can this happen? What do I ask for?
