There’s a Space Above My Invisalign Aligner Surface. Will it Affect My Treatment?

Friday, July 3rd, 2015
Q.

I’m on Invisalign treatment now on aligner number 14 out of 48. I just discovered that my front tooth is slightly chipped, about less than 2 mm. I noticed that one of my front teeth has become smaller and checked the fitness of my aligner. There’s an obvious space above the surface. I don’t experience any pain whatsoever but I’m worried that this will this affect my treatment. If so, what do I need to be prepared for?

How Easy Is It For A Dentist To Remove Denseal From A Temporary Tooth?

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015
Q.

My question is: how easy is it for a dentist to remove Denseal from the enamel of a tooth fixed as a temporary repair for a chipped tooth? This is worrying me as I have an appointment next week.and like the other people, I am embarrassed about it.The repair covers the hole with a strip along the back of the tooth to stop it from falling out. It’s not meant as a permanent fix, just while I wait a month for my appointment. Thanks.

How Can I Stop My Tooth From Chipping Even More?

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. My right front tooth has been chipping away for a few years now, it started very small, not noticeable at all. A few days ago I notice a slightly bigger chip in the middle of the tooth. I can feel my tooth is very thin and quite weak in that area. I am just wondering if there is anything I can do to improve the look of it, or prevent it from chipping even more. I was thinking maybe to get my two front teeth filed down to match? Is this an option? I asked my dentist about this years ago but he said its nothing to worry about, just try not to drink sugary fluids. Please let me know my options. I am looking for prevention and a long term fix. Thanks for reading.

I Have One Chipped Front Tooth And The Other Is Large And Wonky. What’s The Best Option For This?

Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi, Dr Gambroudes. I have two big front teeth with a large gap. One of these is chipped and the other is moving outwards making the gap larger and wonky. Please can you suggest what I can do? What’s the best option for this? What cost is involved? And could I have treatment on the NHS as I’m not working at the moment?

It’s really making me depressed and I’m not leaving my house and my job ended because my confidence is zero. I am now suffering from aggraphobia because I don’t want to leave the house and meet people.

Please help. Thank you.

I Was Due To Have A Root Canal But My Tooth Has Chipped. Can The Treatment Still Go Ahead?

Thursday, August 7th, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Andrew Moore. I had my first appointment for root canal treatment on my left side bottom back molar a week ago, the dentist drilled and cleaned the inside of the tooth and put a temporary filling in. My next appointment is tomorrow. I grind my teeth in my sleep and yesterday I noticed a small chip in the back right corner of the molar – today a quarter of the tooth has come off! It has broken down near flush to the gum on that corner. Can the root canal still happen? I was told I needed to have a crown put in before – can this still happen with part of the tooth gone? Thank you for your time.

I Have A Clean Chip In One Front Tooth Which Has Left A Huge Gap. Which Treatment Would I Need To Build It Back Up?

Monday, June 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Moore, I have one tooth which is just right of the front in the top set which has a clean chip in it, meaning that its completely flat and is now only coming out all but millimetres, so you can see there is a tooth there but at the same time it leaves a huge gap

would this be able to be built up on or would an implant be the only option? I need something done. I’m just unaware of the different types of treatment available and I’d appreciate your advice. Thank you for your time. It would be great to hear back from you.

Should My Dentist Attempt To Whiten My Tooth Prior To Fitting My Crown. Is This Something You Could Help Me With?

Thursday, June 26th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I noticed a reply you made concerning internal whitening and wondered whether you’d be able to offer me some advice please? I’ve had a porcelain fused to metal crown replaced by a porcelain crown on my front tooth. Unfortunately what’s left of my tooth underneath is almost black and shows through the crown and gum itself. I was really disappointed by this as whilst the crown itself is better it’s more blue than the previous one. I’ve read some comments online that perhaps my dentist could have attempted to internally whiten my tooth prior to fitting the crown and/or tried masking the tooth. My question is; can this be done now that the crown has been fitted or would this require my crown to be replaced? I assume that removing my current crown would ruin it and so I would need a whole new one if that was the case? Also, is this something you could help me with at your practice? As I fear that my general dental practice (whilst very good) may lack the expertise to help me on this one.

Any guidance would be hugely appreciated! 🙂

Thank you.

I Have A Massive Phobia Of Dentists And Have Not Been For Ten Years. What Is The Cheapest And Least Painful Option For A Whole Mouth Of Work?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. First of all, let me tell you I have a massive phobia of dentists. I have not had any work done to my teeth in over 10 years, and they are chipped, discoloured, rotten and in some parts missing. I don’t think there’s One tooth in my mouth that would not need treatment. I would love to transform my teeth into a smile but I worry about cost & pain/fears. What is the cheapest & least painful option for a whole mouthful of work? Thank you.

I Have A Chip On My Front Tooth Through Biting My Nails. How Much Does Cosmetic Bonding Cost For Small Chips?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew, I’m looking for a quick estimate. I have a very small chip on my front tooth due to biting my nails for years. I’m looking for brush on white composite and wanted a rough estimate on price? Please can you give me a starting price for very small chips? Is there any other treatment I could consider for this type of treatment and could you tell me how much this would cost also? Thank you for your time in replying to me, it’s appreciated. Thanks.

I Have A Chipped Tooth And My Amalgam Filling Shows Through. Can I Have The Filling Replaced?

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I would like your help. My main concerns are with two teeth. May I have your view to what is the best solution as:
My bottom tooth is chipped inwards showing the whole amalgam filling? I would like to replace the amalgam filling with a white filling and I would like the chipped tooth mended without the crown in place. How is this possible and how is it mended? Also I would like to ask you what’s the best and strongest filling to mend the top tooth (near the gum). Thank you for your help and advice in advance.
