is it possible to have veneers on the front teeth and can it be placed on gums that have receded

Monday, April 27th, 2009
Q.
Hi Riten, I was just checking out the mulberry website regarding the work you do. What I would like to know is, with veneers is it possible to place a) Only two veneers on the front teeth? and b) Can veneers be placed if the Gums have receded? I can’t have treatment for a while yet but my situation is is that after an accident, my two front teeth are two narrow for my mouth as the widths were filed down so they look out of proportion with the rest of my teeth. Instead of bonding them, my dentist filed them to make them look even and then I had braces to close the huge gap they made. It looks okish but I’d rather my front teeth be wider again. What I would like to know is if I got my orthodontist to space the front teeth so they are back to the width framework they were originally, can two veneers be placed to close the gap and get them reverted back to how they were? Trouble is though, the gums have receded slightly on the fronts so don’t know if that would be a hinderance. My teeth are perfectly straight, except for the narrow fronts and I have a maryland bridge for a missing canine, but I don’t really want 4 veneers as i’d then have to have an implant too. I can send you a photo if you wish of the fronts to show you what I mean but am greatly interested in your professional opinion. Thanks

I have periodontal bone loss where do i go from here as i was hoping to get implant

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009
Q.
I have periodontal disease and have been attending a dentist and dental hospital for the past 3 years, my front tooth is now loose and I can’t understand why these dentists have allowed this to get to this stage. I decided to try a new dentist last week and found out that I have periodontal bone loss, the dentist said my front tooth is hanging on by just a couple of mm. I’ve been reading about BOST and was wondering is the bone in my mouth too far gone for this treatment, if so, where do I go from here as I was hoping that I would be able to get implants.

i have very small gaps between the teeth will they continue to grow? any advise

Monday, April 20th, 2009
Q.
Hi I recently gave up smoking and just before christmas noticed i had some very small gaps appearing in between my teeth. I saw 2 dentists who told me there was nothing wrong and it was natural age progression ( I am 30) I paid privatly and saw another dentist who referred me to his hygenist who i saw last week for a sonic scale and polish. She told me my gums were slightly inflamed but when i go back next week she said the scale and polish would be all i need. My gums are now a healthy pink but the gaps have got bigger which was explained to me may happen. Is there anything i can do to fill these gaps as even though they are small I really notice them. Also what has caused this as when she did the probe to check my gums there is no bone loss and they were normal depths. Now the gaps are there will they continue to grow? Any advise would be great as this has taken over my life the last month and has really gotten me down.. Many thanks

Can you advise if laser whitening would not cause any more damage to my gums

Monday, April 20th, 2009
Q.
Hi i have had gum disease before, but been to the dentist and now removed, although my gums are reseeding from my teeth, i have used bleaching before, which i think has done this to my gums. I am interested in teeth whiting but will this cause my gums to do the same thing. I also have a gene disorder called xxy which is proven to give you bad gum disease which i have talked to my dentist about, and she tells me that is not possible. Can you advise if laser whitening would not cause any more damage to my gums. Regards
