My crowns look fake, it’s really getting me down so what should I do?

Q.
Hello, I just wondered if you could help me something that has been bothering me for a while? When I was about 14 my dentist suggested I got caps for the teeth either side of my two front teeth because they were small & pointy. I’ve since been back 3 times to get my caps re-done because they looked awful, wrong colour, don’t fit, crooked, very obvious. I now am left with two horrible (quite blatantly obviously fake) looking teeth! I now have a tooth growing behind one Of my capped teeth so I am unsure of what that will do. I can’t imagine my teeth would look any worse than they already do. Is there anything I can do which won’t cost me an arm & a leg? I’m fed up of having to have the caps replaced, it’s really getting me down. Thank you in advance!

Hi, thanks for your question. when you have crowns already there isn’t a quick fix just new crowns or if the roots are poor replacement with a bridge, implants or a denture. Hope this helps.

When getting a bridge I have noticed it says the cost is per tooth. The bridges I’ve seen are 3 teeth long, does that mean I pay the cost of 3 teeth, or does it mean the cost per bridge?

Good afternoon Woudl I be able to get a bridge ( or similar ) free on the NHS ? I am missing one of my bottom two front teeth and the other one will be falling out soon. The reason for this is that they are both milk teeth and I was born without any adult teeth to replace them. Obviously it doesn’t look very good and it gets me down and when the second one goes it will only get worse. I am in the same situation as many and I can’t afford thousands to replace these teeth Many thanks for any help,

You’ll need to speak to your dentist however as a rule this type of treatment isn’t generally available on the NHS, it will only be free if you’re exempt from dental charges.

my bridge with 5 teeth broke and the dentist tells me they do not do bridges anymore with this many teeth on and now I am worried about what to do. I smoke so implants are not recommended? I have been told a denture would be best but even though I do not fancy this feel I do not have much of a choice at this stage I have no teeth at the side for a bridge to be fitted now so thet is another problem any ideas of what else could be done
