Hi Dr Moore, I had a filling in one of my back teeth on left side upper set. But randomly the front of the tooth has gone so I can feel the filling and looking at it I can see the black filling. Quite gross! I wasn’t sure what can be done but I wanted to know if a crown or a white filling could be done and wondered how much it would cost. I also wanted to ask the cost of having white fillings replaced on another tooth, and also a deep clean and possibly whitening all over. I hope you can help.

Hello. I Have A Small Jaw And I Need A Tooth Removing As It Is Impacting On Others. How Much Does This Cost?Wednesday, December 4th, 2013
Hello Dr Moore, I have a tooth at the front of my mouth which has grown over my other teeth. There was not a big enough space for it to grow into as my jaw is too small and I apparently have too many teeth. This means that they have no space to grow straight. I really dislike the way it looks as it is very noticeable. I am currently asking around and was wondering if you could give me a quote of what kind of prices it would be to have the tooth removed. Can there be any complications involved with this type of procedure? This would be of great help to me thank you.
Hello Dr Moore, I hope you can help me. I need to have 4 front teeth removed with scaling & root planning done. Dentist said the other teeth were borderline, some might be saved after the root planning. I have two options to choose from and only considering implants at this time. Other than cost,
Should I plan for 4 implants and deal with the other teeth over time or should I just have the full mouth extraction and upper/lower ALL IN ONE implants.
I am 63 years old and I’m in good health.
Thank you, I look forward to your response and advice.
Hello. I would like one of my lower front teeth to go back in line with the rest as it is indented. I have been told that I could wear an invisible brace (removable) for 6 month at a cost of £2,600. Would that cost be about right? Also, my husband has the same problem except his problem tooth is on the top set of teeth. His tooth has protruded slightly more than usual over the last couple of months and so he too has been told that an invisible brace could be fitted and would solve the problem in 6 months at a cost of £2,600. Please give some advice. Thank you, Dr Shaffie.
Hello Dr Shaffie. Can you recommend a top dental clinic to fit permanent crowns? I have temporary crowns in two adjacent molar implants fitted a year ago. How much should I expect to pay?
The current crown is a twin crown fitted into typical titanium abutments, which are fitted very well and securely.
I need to have top quality work done and cost is not the big issue. Reliable work and after care is most important. My oral hygiene is very good and enjoy good health . I am 70 years of age and I would like this problem sorted out.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer me.
My Dentist Has Told Me That My Lower Teeth Are Down To The Dentine. I Am Unaware Of What To Do About This Problem. Any Advice?Thursday, October 31st, 2013
I had my 2 front teeth crowned about 26 years ago and they are still okay. However at a recent check up my dentist told me that I was down to the dentine on my lower teeth and this was caused by the crowns. I am to be fitted with a night guard – do you think this is simply a stop gap – as my dentist did mention that the expensive option of having them all capped would probably be the best solution. I have some teeth missing already but am unsure of what could be done on the NHS and do you think this cost would be per tooth? I will have to save like mad but I’m not sure what I am looking at for the best results really. Any help would be gratefully received.
I’m Considering Veneers As I Want Perfect, Pearly Whites. How Much Are They And Will They Damage My Teeth?Tuesday, October 15th, 2013
Hello Dr Moore, recently I have been strongly considering
porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of my teeth, but I have some questions for you. On average
how much does it cost for each veneer per tooth? Also, how much would you charge in your clinic for example, and will having them cause any damage my own teeth? This is something I would really like to have done, my teeth are not particularly in an awful condition but they are also far from perfect pearly straight whites, and I would like them to look nice and the best they can be. Thanks, I would really like to hear from you.
Hi, Dr Hughes. I am just querying a price for some work I want done to my teeth? Basically I would like the two teeth next to the front teeth made the same length as the first two, using bonding. Then on my right side I would like about 2cm in length of gum reshaping to heighten the gum line to match the other side.
If that makes any sense? Please can you give me a round about price that I can expect to pay with this type of treatment.
Kind regards and thank you for your response.
Hi, hello. How much would you estimate an upper implant denture to cost? I am only a 43 female and I have had to rely on a full NHS denture for a few years which I cannot bear any longer. My confidence is at an all time low and thought a denture implant may be the answer to my problems. I am in good health but lost my teeth after pregnancy and I cannot carry on with my current dentures. Also can you get a lower implant denture. When I got my last set of dentures you could see that teeth aren’t sitting straight and dentist has you in and out of chair in minutes, which really isn’t good enough.
I Feel My Dentist Isn’t Up To Scratch, But If I Move I Would Have To Pay For Dental Work. What Do I Do?Friday, September 27th, 2013
Hi, I have been to the same dentist for about 20 years. I pay privately (denplan) saw the hygienist there the other day and I told her I wasn’t happy about my upper side teeth – some are missing and I notice one side the teeth look very small(ground down). Once when cleaning them a wad of cotton wool fell out and the dentist said that lasted well. I not happy with the state of my back teeth told the hygienist and she said my dentist is a make do and mend! She stated she wouldn’t put up with it. What do I do? It was the hygienist’s assistance who suggested I had a maryland in another part of my teeth – the same dentist wasn’t forth coming. Your comment would be greatly appreciated. I did contact denplan and was told if I move to another denplan dentist I would have to pay for dental work.
