One of my front teeth is shorter than the other. I was told they couldn’t file down the longer one any more. What can I do to make the short tooth longer? I had braces twice, spending a lot of money without results. I don’t want to get braces again and my dentist doesn’t know what to tell me. He referred me back to an orthodontist. He says that one tooth outgrew the other, and I’ve never broken my tooth. The last orthodontist had them the same length, but the retainer didn’t keep the one tooth from growing longer than the other. Thank you.

Hello, it has been around 3-4 years since I had my braces removed. During the time I had braces, one of my front teeth had chipped slightly, however, despite this being visibly apparent to both my regular dentist and orthodontist, nothing was done about it. Now over the past few months, this tooth seems to have chipped even more. My question is, since I am under 18 and in full time education, can this tooth be bonded for free under the NHS? And also, would this then affect my retainers if my tooth is able to be bonded?
I have gap in my front teeth and I want to bridge the gap. Can you please help me out with the procedure?
I have searched though the internet and came to know about applying the braces, but it will take so much time and I don’t want to spend time on this. So can you please help me out in this regard?
It would be really great if I could get some help and various solutions so that I can smile happily.
Hello. I have one tooth on the top set that is set back from the other front two teeth, making it look like a really small tooth spot and when I have pictures taken, on one side it can look like the tooth is missing all together. It really is knocking my confidence. I can’t smile properly without being nervous. I have seen pictures of other patients with teeth worse than mine and they have veneers. Will a single veneer sort this out? Thank you.
Hi, not sure if you will be able to help?
For a couple of years now I have noticed my 2 front teeth are becoming crooked and it’s really starting to get me down. I was told as a child that I have too many teeth in my mouth and I think this is what is causing the crookedness now my wisdom teeth are starting to come through. Also the tooth on the right side next to my front teeth was filed (very badly) when I was younger and now sits at an angle like it’s been broken off.I feel like I have a really bad overbite, it has really started to knock my self confidence but, my problem is I can’t afford the money that my dentists are asking for? Is there any way I could have this sorted out cheaper or even on finance? Many thanks.
I’ve recently noticed that 1 of my front teeth is longer than the other one and is also slightly wonky, it looks really bad, I feel it will only get worse over time as I am still young. Would a brace fix this? Even though it’s just one tooth that’s the issue, and I think it’s the length as well. Also, the teeth surrounding my 2 big ones at the front are considerably smaller, which again look unnatural. I’ve heard about veneers and bonding, but I was wondering if there are any other options. And the costs of these!
My two front teeth at the bottom are not straight, as in they are growing towards each other and looking like they are pushing against each other. My dentist said it’s because of my wisdom teeth and to see a specialist if I’m concerned. Again, would a brace help here?
I have used Invisalign to align my teeth but the upper front 2 incisors are not perfectly aligned. As I do not want to have another round of Invisalign, is there another quick option just to make these 2 teeth a bit more straight? Also, could you kindly advise if Lumineers could be a solution or are they too thin? I do not want to affect the teeth so I’m not interested in veneers.
Thank you and best regards.
Hi there. I have 1 front tooth that’s set back from the rest. It is next to my front two teeth to the left. I would like to know if it could be filled/built up to align with my others i.e. bonded/veneered? Sometimes on photos it looks like I don’t have a tooth there and I would like them all to look nice and full. I know a consultation will be needed in the first instance but thought I would just ask for an opinion.
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.
Hi, I have a partial denture on my top front teeth but the enamel on my bottom front teeth is wearing away. They don’t look nice and I’m afraid I’m going to lose them. Is there anything I can do to A) make them look better and B) stop myself from losing them? I go to my dentist every three months as I’m on medication that can harm your teeth, but she has never advised me that I can do anything about the problem.Thank you.
