Q.
Hello, my teeth are stained under the existing veneers and I will be having them replaced shortly. What would be the best type of veneer to not show through any of the under stain as my other teeth are of a white appearance. Regards, ,

I am considering a smile makeover but my main aim is to make my teeth look bigger. Can you recommend treatment?

Monday, October 25th, 2010
Q.
Hi Dr, I’m considering a ‘smile makeover’. My problem is that my teeth are quite small. There are no gaps or noticeable deficiencies (structure etc is fine) but very small dents and prominent fangs. Is there a way of making the teeth look bigger and would it be better to get full lumineers or a smile makover which included bonding, whitening and reshaping? Many thanks.,

My veneers feel rough after being filed down. Can anything be done to correct this problem?

Friday, October 22nd, 2010
Q.
I had 4 porcelain crowns fitted that were too long. My dentist filed them down and they are now the correct size, but they feel really rough. Will this rougness go away in time or is there anything else that the dentist can do to correct this problem. I had all this treatment done privately and as you can imagine am disappointed as I paid £900 per crown.,

Dentist has recommended clear fixed braces for my irregular bite, but could I instead have something like veneers or crowns?

Friday, October 22nd, 2010
Q.
i am writing hoping you can give me some advise. i have visited an orthodontic dentist and they have the recommended the following treatment for me. This is what i was told i have an irregularity of the top teeth and irregularity of the bottom teeth. when the teeth bite together the top front teeth are prominent than average this called an increased overjet. My overjet is 5mm. The vertical overlap of the front teeth is increased. The top front teeth are centred and the bottom front teeth are across to the right. The side teeth do not mesh together perfectly. My examination of the jaw shap shows the bottom jaw is smaller than average such that in profile the chin is slightly receding. X rays confirmed that i have a number of missing teeth. The x ray also shows that the upper right second preomalr is impacted and unerupted. I can have fixed clear braces for the best results but would like to know if there is alternative treatment like veneers crowns etc,

Would veneers be suitable for my chipped teeth which was caused by acid erosion?

Friday, October 22nd, 2010
Q.
I used to eat alot of citrus fruit as a child and it has left me with acid erosion. My two front teeth are fragile and occasionally chip slightly, however its usually not very noticeable and they usually manage to smooth themselves out eventually. However they have recently chipped again. My dentist says that i have a good set of teeth and veneers may look fake. But i am not happy with them just now and i do not want them to get any smaller, i want them to be smoothed out and lenthened to there original size but to still look like my own teeth. i have had composite bonding but it doesnt last long before falling off and taking away more of my teeth. Do u think veneers would be a good option? if so can u recommend a good dentist in the glasgow area as my dentist doesnt sound confident on doing the job i would like?,

Friday, October 22nd, 2010
Q.
Hi, I have a question. My wife has a big problem. She fixed her teeth in a dentist that was just after the money and the result was very bad. She was recomended plastic tooths where they smaller her orginal tooths and glue some kind of plastic tooths and now it have fallen of and looks verry bad becouse the dentist smaller her tooths and she suffer to drink hot and cold. Now she is recomenended Crowns in 9 tooths in another clinic and the prize is like around 2000-2500 £ covert to pounds. She having her treatment in wedensday in the Phillippines. The country is highly corropted and i dont trust anyone there. I just wondering what should her ask about and check soo we can be sure that the dentist using really crowns. and what kind of crowns is recomended for her problem. Maybe they are using a kind of crowns that is bad quality for that prize?? I personal dont know anything about tooths, but it is verry expensive and i we dont want it to be right this time. She was there last week and they said that it have to be made at a labratory then they have planed the treatment for only 3 days, Is it a real time to do this work or is it rush. I was spending alot of money last time for nothing and it got worse. Sorry for my english i hope u can understand it and i will presaid it verry much if i get a answere Many Thanks advanced,

Should I go for root canal and then crowns or veneers on badly worn tooth? These are two dentist’s different opinions.

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010
Q.
In the states, the dentist wants to do four root canals and then crowns on the lower 4 front teetch, as they are badly worn from a major overbite. The Costa Rica dentest says why ruin good teeth as the roots are very strong. I understand that porcelin does not do well on dentyn and needs to be on enamil which I don’t have any. He states that a hard composite veneer is better suited on teech with not enamil.,
