What Price Range Am I Looking At For A Unit 3 Bridge And A Crown Support?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. It seems I need a 3 unit bridge but one of the teeth must have a crown to support the bridge as it is in danger of cracking or splitting.
The area is in the top left hand side. This specifically refers to the last three teeth in the set. The far left one is gold crowned and on the right hand side the tooth is in poor condition.
What is the price range likely to be for the whole course of treatment – including everything including extraction of the middle tooth that cannot be saved. Regards.

Can You Tell Me If I Can Get My Crown Down Under General Anaesthetic? Sedation Doesn’t Work For Me.

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. Can you please advise me whether I would be able to have a general anaesthetic to have a crown done? I am extremely nervous and cannot bring myself to have it done even under sedation as this has not worked for me in the past. It is a tooth at the front that has broken before and my dentist has suggested a crown to fix it permanently. I really am very nervous and was even in tears yesterday just at the though of going to my dentist for her to have a look at it. I know this will probably be very expensive but it is the only way I feel that I can go through with it.

Can You Tell Me Who In London Has The Most Expertise Using Cerec? I Have A Tooth That Requires A Crown But Would Prefer Cerec.

Friday, January 17th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. Can you tell me who in London has the most expertise in Cerec fillings? I have heard mixed reports on how
successful it is as a treatment. I have heard the life of such a treatment is not great and that the finish can be imperfect. I have a tooth which requires a crown but would prefer a Cerec filling if it was comparable. I need a dentist with plenty of experience with the product. I live in London and would prefer to be seen there if possible. Many thanks, I hope you can help me with this.

My Wife Has Received Unsuccessful Endodontal Treatment. How Would You Treat Her Following This?

Friday, January 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Moore. My wife has received unsuccessful endodontal treatment for infection in the roots. She has been advised that an extraction will be required if the infection flares up, but a crown on the tooth after sectioning has been suggested as an option. The tooth would be sectioned and half extracted (with two roots from which the infection could not be removed). A crown would then be fitted to the remaining half. Please would you let me know if this is an established technical procedure, how successful is it and is it commonly offered privately in the UK? Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.

On Recommendation Of My Own Dentist I Would Like To Know The Cost Of An Implant For A Front Tooth?

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes, I require either a denture implant or a denture/plate fitted, on recommendation of my own dentist I would like to know the cost of an implant for a front tooth? The crown that I already have fitted falls out it has been repaired 3 times in the last 4 months, my NHS dentist says I need a one denture/plate in position where required and will be very uncomfortable and that I may find that I will be unable to wear the denture/plate for 24 hours a day. What are my other options? Thank you for your time.

What Would Be The Cheapest Way Of Improving My Molars? I’m Not Sure Crowns Are The Answer.

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. I have two missing incisors and when I was young an orthodontist attempted to correct this by closing the gaps with braces. About 10 years ago my NHS dentist at the time evened off the canines with white fillings to look more like incisors. I have quite a bad under-bite and feel that as I get older I don’t have enough teeth to fill out my face. My dentist here had suggested I could improve the look of my teeth by putting crowns on the premolars which have amalgam fillings and which are slightly visible when I smile. This seems an expensive way of not making a lot of difference. Because I’ve never been able to afford cosmetic dentistry I’ve never pursued any further advice but I’d like to know if there is anything I could do and what it might cost.

I Was Fitted With A Metal Crown And Now I Have Dry Mouth. Can I Get A Porcelain Crown Through The NHS?

Friday, January 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello, Dr. Moore I have a problem that I hope you can help me with. I have had to have my porcelain crown fitted with metal crown on a molar at the back because I was told the NHS does not allow for a porcelain one. I am now finding that I am suffering from a weird dryness and numbness in the mouth and tongue and think that I am intolerant to the metal crown. It has been suggested that I have oral candida but I show no signs of these symptoms. Can I have it replaced with a porcelain one and how much is the cost under NHS? Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer me.

Can Veneers Or Crowns Correct A Severe Overjet? I Don’t Want Braces As I’m Too Old.

Thursday, January 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi, I was wondering if veneers or crowns can correct a severe overjet? I really do not want to wear braces for 2 years as I feel I’m too old and will be getting married later this year. I am willing to have my teeth ground drastically if that’s what it takes to correct this overjet. I’ve researched that jaw surgery may be an option as well but I am worried this will affect my facial profile. Although my main focus is to straighten my top teeth, I would also consider putting veneers on my bottom teeth to reduce the overjet as well.

My Porcelain Crowns Are Too Big For My Liking. Can I Have Them Shaped And Polished Without Damaging Them?

Thursday, January 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Moore. I recently got porcelain crowns on my front two teeth. I think they look a little big. Can they be shaped now that they are in place? I have always hated my two front teeth because they looked too big and I would preferably like them much smaller. I was hoping that the crowns would have made them look smaller. If they try and shape them now will it dull them and is there any chance of them cracking or breaking? Any advice you can provide will be very helpful and I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

I Don’t Like My Metal Based Crowns Which Make My Teeth Look Black. Is This A Cosmetic Issue?

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014
Q.

My top two front teeth have metal based crowns. The black ( metal) around the top of the teeth is clearly visible and I am getting fed up with people asking why my teeth are black.
I have just been to the dentist today (NHS), as one of them is quite sensitive to hot and cold and the last three days I have experienced discomfort. However, she doesn’t believe there is anything wrong with it, which is great. However, I asked if these could be replaced as the metal is unsightly. She said that as it is cosmetic I would have to pay £275 for each one. Is this true? I thought I could do this on the NHS for a cost of £210 or thereabouts for both or have I just misunderstood?
