I have a grey front tooth, due to a dentist missing a problem, which is also overlapping my other front tooth. I’m wondering what procedure would be recommended to straighten and whiten it. I’ve heard of extraction and a fake one screwed in and was wondering about an estimated price as I’m on benefits and it’s affecting my smile and meeting new people as I don’t like it at all. Please, is there any way I could sort this problem out in a cheap and effective way?

Many years ago when I had my first child I lost a lot of teeth whilst I was pregnant, it didn’t matter how much milk I drank and healthy food I ate, and had to have a plate fitted. Then 16 years later it happened again.I lack confidence in a very big way. Can you please tell what I can do? I was referred many years ago for implants but I got scared and didn’t get it done on the NHS back then. My dentist said in time I’m going to loss the front one. Please can you help to advise me on what I can do? Thank you.
I have recently lost four front teeth in a row. If I decided to go for an implant, how many would I need, and is a bridge possible with implants? I originally had a bridge on two teeth, then the one next to the bridge was removed. I recently had a plate for that, but in the meantime we found I had decay in the two teeth. Apparently the bridge wasn’t very good and was leaking so now the bridge has to be removed, plus the two teeth holding bridge and the gap I already have, which makes a loss of four teeth in a row. What is the best way forward? I cannot get used to an acrylic dental plate. Please can you give me some advice? I have booked an appointment to see a specialist.
Hi. I am hoping you can advise me about who to approach for financial help for implants. I am 50 years of age, and have in my opinion, looked after my appearance. However, although I have been a business person in the past, I have bipolar disorder, a condition which I am not in control of nor is it any fault of my own. However, after 21 years and many, many different medications and mood stabilizers I found it impossible to work any longer due to the effects of this awful condition. As if this change of life situation was not bad enough, I then noticed my teeth deteriorating, and have recently discovered it is connected to all the medications over the years as I suffer with dry mouth as a result. I have lost 2 teeth near the front since my birthday and found this more than devastating and a worsening impact on my already low moods. I have been looking for a new dentist in my area and although I’ve just registered with one, I have no faith they have the time or compassion to understand how this is making me feel. As I do not socialise much anymore this new situation is making me feel hopeless as I have not even been leaving the house at all. Is there anyone I can get advice from with regards to NHS help for implants, since in theory medication has been the main factor of the deterioration? I now feel at 50 my life is over as I cannot bear to look in the mirror and now isolate from people completely. I hope you can understand this is far more than vanity, and more about taking away any social interactions I am able to have when my mood and anxiety levels are not so low. Thank you.
I had two implants put in at side of mouth recently. When the final teeth were fitted I had a gap between the front implant tooth and my canine tooth so dentist filled the front canine tooth at the side to fill the gap as I had a filling there anyway. When I got home later and looked I realised he had chipped a bit off my new implant tooth and it has seemed to have removed the shine. My question is, can it be corrected chair -side by a dentist or would I have to get the tooth made again? Someone told me it can be done but not all dentists do this?
Hi Dr Hughes. I have recently been in a car accident, and have lost two and a half teeth and chipped a fourth tooth, all at the front of my mouth. My teeth are usually in good condition but I don’t currently have a dentist. I am looking for an NHS dentist in Manchester to give me dental implants. Is this something you could help me with? If you could get back to me with some information this would great, thank you.
Hi Mark. The cover for one of my dental implants came off while I was eating and I swallowed it. I am frightened it will cause damage to my stomach or intestines. What do you suggest? This is the second time it has come off, but the first time it just plopped onto my tongue while talking on phone. The dentist I use is awesome but as fate would have it, this is the weekend so the clinic is closed. I got the screws placed about one month ago on the back upper tooth on the right. I have two dental screws on the upper left back and so far have had no trouble with them. Thank you for your time.
Hello Dr Gambroudes. Good afternoon, I just want to ask you about how much it’ll cost for dental implant? I have two missing teeth at the front. This makes smiling or taking a photograph on social occasions very difficult and I would like to have this fixed. Could braces close this gap or would it have to be a dental implant? And do you know of any special offers for this type of treatment. Thank you for your time in advance.
Hello Dr Gambroudes, I’m wondering if you can offer me some advice. I had my two front teeth knocked out when I was a child, after falling off my bike. My teeth are now like
grave stones and I’m not happy with how they look. I decided to try and get
them sorted out for my wedding, but the dentist I saw said they could only be done on a palate. They were done for the wedding, but I couldn’t get use to them properly. Since then
I have had another fall and knocked some more teeth out. My wife is on my case to get what she calls ‘proper teeth’ fitted. What can be done, if anything, for me? Thank you in advance.
