Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have a friend who because she has taken tablets the enamel on her teeth has all come off and her confidence has totally gone with it. She won’t go out and this is the reason as she doesn’t want anyone to see her. She is not working and claims benefits so really can’t afford much. Can you help and advise me please as to where to go from here to help her? I hope you can offer your advice. Many thanks.

Hi, I Suffer From Bulimia And I Would Like To Know If There Is Any Way To Protect My Teeth From Any Further Damage?Wednesday, February 19th, 2014
I have suffered from bulimia for around 4 years and I am currently being treated. My main concern though is my teeth. I’m incredibly worried about the effect bulimia has and will have on my teeth as I am nowhere near recovered yet. I was wondering what kind of thing I can do to protect my teeth as I already feel that they are increasingly sensitive? I realize that I may need to get some form of treatment in the future if I do not get my bulimia under control soon but I would like to minimize the damage done in the mean time.
Hi, I Suffer From Bulimia And Tooth Erosion. Would Cosmetic Bonding Be The Ideal Treatment To Fix My Chipped Teeth?Friday, February 14th, 2014
Hi, due to my Bulimia I have some damage to my two front teeth there is a small gap at the bottom due to chipping and the edges have become slightly ragged. I wondered if an application of resin and tooth bonding would fix this? I had perfect teeth but due to my illness I can’t help but feel reminded every time I brush my teeth in the mirror of my eating disorder. My dentist is unaware of this disorder however has noticed my enamel erosion and suggested a course of resin may ‘erase’ the chips. Thanks, your advice would be appreciated at this time.
Dear Andrew, I Have Noticed Some Enamel Loss Recently. Is There Any Way To Replace The Enamel I’ve Lost?Wednesday, January 29th, 2014
My teeth are in generally good health and I do not suffer from any sort of pain. However over the last few months I have noticed that my two upper right sided incisors have had some enamel loss, which has probably happened over time and therefore they are now shorter than my left sided incisors which looks quite odd. Is there any way to replace, naturally or artificially, the enamel which has been lost from a cosmetic point of view? Thank you, I hope you can help me with my enquiry.
Hi Marcus. I brush my teeth twice a day as usual yet over last few years my teeth seem to chip and are becoming thinner. My own dentist said it’s down to personal care. What can I do? Also two of my teeth have been removed due to breaking and I feel like at any time another could break as they look so thin. During my last check up they mentioned I have glue on my teeth from when I had braces at 12/13 years old and that there has been damage around the glue. I feel like I’m getting no answers and that I’ll lose all my teeth if nothing is done.
I Have Very Little Enamel On My Teeth, Can There Really Be Nothing Done To Make Them Straight And White?Thursday, September 19th, 2013
Hi, Dr Shaffie. My mum was ill when she was pregnant with me and the medication she took made my adult teeth come through with very little enamel on them. My dentist told me there was nothing that could be done to make them white. I had braces when I was a teenager but I was told that my jaw needed breaking for the teeth to stay straight and my dentist said that wiring my jaw shut meant my teeth wouldn’t get the proper cleaning they needed and because of my lack of enamel and they’d rot. So now I’m stick with yellow crooked teeth. Is there really nothing that can be done? I would literally do anything to have lovely straight white teeth. I really hope you can help me with this. Thank You.
I Want To Know How Well The Enlighten Deep Cleaning System Works And Whether It Affects Thin Enamel?Wednesday, September 11th, 2013
Hello, Dr Moore, I have quite a few questions I need to ask you about the enlighten deep bleaching system. Does the enlighten deep bleaching system work on patients with thinning enamel? Also could you tell me how well does it bleaches dentine? Will they experience more sensitivity? How much change should a patient expect to see in the final hours session within the surgery? If teeth are not very white by this stage, will it have a significant effect? Thank you, I hope you can provide me with an answer.
Hello Doctor, I was wondering if you could help me out at all. My problem isn’t too urgent I don’t think, but it has been bugging me for a little while so I’d like to have it cleared up. Basically, I have a small hole in one of my top front teeth. It is on the top near the gum. It doesn’t hurt or grow bigger. It just stays as it is. It may be a cavity but don’t cavities hurt and get bigger ? I was wondering what this might be and if the dentist can fill it . I don’t know what it is because it has stayed the same size for many years now. It hasn’t hurt. And the last 1-2 times I went to the dentist, I had it and he has said nothing about it.
I have yellow teeth with stain in it from childhood my theeth is very thin. I tried many thing like various tooth paste,cleaning my teeth by dentist but no result found. It is very embracing to have teeth like this as you can imagine and it does not do anything good for me in how i live my life . It Affects my confidence when i talk to people. I do not know what should I do for this Sir,
Kindly, suggest me something to get rid of it.do you think it is possible that i have a condition? nothing works and the enamel is too brittle it always has been and my teeth are very sensitive too. please advise. thank you for your time.
My front teeth are very thin as the enamel is wearing down due to my age ( 60 yrs) and the fact I eat lots of fruit.Before I run into real problems I was wondering if crowns on them would be the answer .I live in the Brighton area and hope that I could go to somewhere locally .Would that be the best solution or should I wait and see ?
The other slight problem with these teeth is that cosmetically I don’t think they look very good.I have always had my 6 monthly checks so have a healthy mouth and wish to keep it this way !
