Could you please advise me on smile makeovers?

Q.
Hi there Justin, i could really use some good advice. I am hoping you can help me, my dilema is this…….. a good few years ago my dad who is a dentist put in 3 crowns on my incisors and my left lateral incisor and then a gap appeared between my 2 front teeth. I am a proffesional singer and my smile is everything to me so i was livid ! so i went to see a cosmetic surgeon near by and i have paid out a hell of alot of money to have my top 10 teeth done properly. This was september last year and i still have yet another wax up in !!! i have been 5 times to visit the lab to go over shape and size and there every time i take photots of teeth i like the look of and go over and over the shape but they cant seem to get it ? I am starting to get phobic of going back and having yet more injections and more wax up smashed out of my mouth its getting very frustrating and now one of the laterals is getting very tender and looks like a root canal might be in order. anyway the look i am going for is similer to katie prices l.a.a smile but my mouth is alot smaller and i have a small arch apparently ? so putting teeth the same size as hers just makes me look like a horse so i need get this sorted as its driving me crackers. My dentist seems insistent on using the same technition but said if all else fails he will go to the da vinci labs. I am thinking of saying its gone on long enough and to go to da vinci. what do you think ? any advice would be valuble to me. kind regards.

I have bad rotten teeth what treatment do u suggest me?

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009
Q.
Hi, I’m 28 years old and i have always had bad teeth and oral hygiene in general. The last time i visited a dentist was around 14 years ago. The teeth that didn’t have to be extracted had fillings so my mouth was already in quite a mess. Now it has got to the stage where at least 50% of my teeth have completly rotted away right down to the gum line and below. All i see now when i open my mouth is big black holes in my gums. The remaining teeth, mostly being the front visable ones have very bad cavities and are discusting to look at. Having done research online i am absolutly petrified of related health issues caused by bad oral hygeine. I’m so depressed right now i just dont know what to do, I have no friends, people think i am ignorent because i never smile and dont like to look at people when they speak to me incase they look at my teeth. I am jobless at the moment, i wanna go back to work but too worried about what the interviewer will think when he see’s my teeth. I really want friends and to socialise but im just so embarassed to go anywhere or speak to anyone. I currently recieve social security benefits so spending thousands of pounds to fix my teeth is not an option for me. I just don’t know what to do or where to turn, i just want to be able to smile and laugh without looking at the floor or putting my hand over my mouth. I have a partner of 8 years who keeps telling me to sort it but she just dosn’t understand why i carn’t face going to see a dentist. I carn’t even smile in front of my 3 children because im so scared of them seeing my bad teeth and asking questions about them, even my own kids think im ignorent and misrable. I’m quite sure i’m way past the help of a regular dentist because i don’t believe any of my teeth can be saved and its actually my gums that look pretty messed up now. Please help me turn my life around and smile again. Your help and advice is very much appreciated.

i have protruding teeth how can i get them aligned?

Monday, September 14th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Caplan, I sent a question about 3 weeks ago and haven’t seen a reply yet so I’m not sure if you received e-mail – apologies if you have received it twice. I am 48 years old and I lost one of my front teeth when I was about 13 years old, I had a fall and the dentist removed the broken tooth and fitted a false one on a pallet which I hated. About 17 years ago I had a bridge fitted which now needs attention as it is starting to wear badly. However my problem is that I have protruding front teeth that I would dearly love to have straightened (they are not so bad and they are not crooked in any way – I think the problem was caused with me having a dummy as a child) Am I right in thinking I cannot have an invisible brace fitted when I have a bridge? If not, what do you think my best option would be where I could have an invisible brace fitted? Can I have the bridge removed and have an implant fitted and a brace fitted then? I do hope you can help me – despite my age, my confidence is rock bottom because of this problem and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time by making an appointment. Many thanks in advance. Many thanks

My dentist advices to have implants are they really necessary?

Monday, September 14th, 2009
Q.
I went two dentists the first one said he would do my smile replacing my crowns, but I had to have the back of my mouth seen to first.I Really wanted my smile done first, he said they were in a decent condition and could wait,he showed me the x rays to back up what he said.But because I wanted a smile first with said crowns I went to another dentist he seemed pleased to do the crowns then he sent me letter saying I would have to have implants and telling me allsorts of horror stories if I did not have, So like when I asked the first dentist who was happy to show me the x rays , this second dentist would not let me near them,I feel I am being manipulated into more expense treatments for the smile, after all I Saw the x rays from first dentist and I could see them perfectly clearly, but the second dentist got very agitated, all I wanted was some new crowns I can not afford 6 to 8 implants where can I go for my crowns I live in the huddersfield area what do you make of this .I am really upset

Im 33 and have gappy teeth would u suggest dentures or crowns?

Friday, September 11th, 2009
Q.
Hi, i am a 33 year old male with very gappy front teeth. Not just the front two, but most of the upper teeth have gaps which obviously affects my confidence. Having consulted my dentist and had my teeth impressions sent to the lab, was told 4 to 7 crowns would be the best option and due to my age, a partial denture would not be recommendable. The cost involved was quite daunting however, i acknowledge that a smile for life is priceless. Do you agree that at my age this would be the best course of action to take, and a partial dentutre should be avoided. Many thanks.

Im 23 and am embarrassed with my teeth what can i do?

Friday, September 11th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Moore Im 23 and am extremely embarrased at the state of my teeth. Toward the back I have lost two on the upper jaw, and have lost part of three teeth on the bottom jaw – presumably from caries. There are also small holes in two of my front teeth near the gumline I feel very nervous at the propect of going to see the dentist because I have neglected my oral healthcare, although I do brush regularly now – I was never really promted to during my childhood. I dont where possible want to have any, or many teeth extracted as I dont discuss my oral health with my partner – again, too embarrased as her teeth are great – she is registered with an NHS dentist wheras I am not and have been reluctant to do so because i feel the way i do. What other options are there to retain as many of my current teeth? i understand without an examination its difficult to say, but from a worst case scenario.. I especially do not want to have to wear dentures, so other options would be essential for this. I have done a bit of research into some of the options, but I thought i would pluck up the courage and speak to someone about it. Many thanks,
