Instead of having 4 front top teeth, I only have 3. What is your recommendation to get a nice smile? I have no gaps/spaces between any of my teeth. My 4th teeth never grew in. I don’t believe I have a 4 tooth at all. I am 36 years old and never take pictures with my family. I have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, and husband. They all love to smile and take pictures, however I don’t. I would love to take a family portrait, but I am not comfortable with showing my teeth. I have recently been going to the dentist to get my cavities taken care of. I would never go to the dentist in the past because I am afraid to let people look in my mouth.

I am 39 years old. I have a gap between my side teeth, not the front ones, on the lower jaw.The gap is about 2-3mm wide.This gap has appeared gradually with time. Please can you suggest a suitable remedy for me? Do removable appliances work? For how long each day should they be worn? Actually, I have been wearing one for about 2 months and I wore them the whole night but can’t afford to wear them every night. I’ve had no visible results so far.
Hi. I’m 30 years old with uneven teeth, receding gums and lots of gaps. I’m getting really depressed over it, I don’t smile with my mouth open. I would love some advice to make me feel 100% better. It’s been troubling me for years and I would love to feel more confident. So please could you give me some advice or information on what to do? That would be gratefully appreciated and help me come out of myself again. It’s just mainly the fronts of my top and bottom teeth. Thank you.
Hello, I have a number of questions to ask. Firstly, I have little gaps between my upper teeth. A gap between central incisors, and between the lateral incisor and the central incisor (both the sides).
Can this gap be removed without my teeth becoming loose? Will this treatment be permanent? Secondly, I want to lighten the color tone of my teeth? I have a yellowish tone on my teeth.
Finally, is bleaching a good idea to lighten the color tone of teeth? I asked my local dentist he told me to get them bleached, or does it loosen the teeth attachment?
Hello Dr Hughes. My teeth have all got gaps in between them, on both the top and bottom sets of teeth. I would like to get my teeth put together as fast as it could be. So I was wondering what treatment would I need and how much do you think it would cost? Adding to this, I was considering what type of pain would I be going through and how long would the surgery take, would it be weeks or days? Thank you, please get back to me.
Hello Dr Hughes. I had braces before, but had them removed. During my treatment, my dentist had stripped between my from front two teeth as it was bigger than the next tooth. But after the removal, we felt that although the gap was filled, the bonding between the teeth is still not complete. I mean there is a small surface gap still visible. I am worried about it and want to fix it in the most natural, non-invasive way possible. Kindly help, thank you.
Hi, Dr Hughes. My age is 24, and I am male. My upper incisors are not straight, they protrude forward. There is also gap between my incisor and my canine. What can be done to correct it? Is there any dental surgery? Also, I have one doubt in my mind. My grandmother died from oral cancer, will surgery affect any prospect of developing cancer of the mouth?
Can I wear braces at my age? In my childhood I wore braces, at that time there was lot of improvement but it has become embarrassing again now. What would be the correct treatment for me?
Hi, Dr Hughes. I hope that you can help me. I was wondering if it would be possible to get lingual braces for only 2 top front teeth which have a gap in them. Would that considerably lower the costs and if so how much would it cost?
Also again, what would the costs be if the bottom incisors (only 2) were to be straightened with lingual braces? Thank you for your reply in advance.
My Front Teeth Have Developed Very Large Gaps In Between Them. Could I Have This Problem Resolved Via The NHS?Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014
Hello Marcus, I would like some advice please.
My 4 top front teeth have developed very large horrible gaps in between them.
They look very horrible and noticeable. They are getting me down and people are staring at them and making horrible remarks about them.
I no longer smile or laugh as my teeth would be on show.
Can I have this problem resolved via the NHS as I am on certain benefits that exempt me from usual dentist treatment.
Dear Dr Gambroudes. How do I reduce the gap between my front teeth. I have actually had my braces put back 1 year, but this gap has re-occurred. Can you suggest to me any ideas to get rid of this gap? I had this gap before and I had braces put in to close it. I don’t want to have braces any more because I had them for almost 2 years and I had a retainer but it still came back again. Is there anything that can be done without putting braces on? The gap is not that much but it is uncomfortable for me. Thank you for your time.
