A Gap In My Smile Appears To Be Getting Bigger. What Should I Do?

Monday, July 14th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I have a gap in my front tooth and the ones beside it & the one beside my front tooth the gap keeps getting bigger on one side. This has become worse, especially the past few months. I am currently an NHS patient and I already got braces as a child so can’t get them again as I’m not entitled. I’m afraid that if I get a veneer added it will look bad as the tooth will appear bigger. But I can’t smile and I am very self conscious about my teeth. The gap on one side just looks so stupid. Do you know of any treatments that could help me? Thank you.

My Teeth Seem To Be Moving And I Want To Have Veneers. I Researched Loads But Haven’t Ever Found An Accurate Price. Could You Tell Me?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I’ve had a lot of trouble with my teeth in the past and I’ve had corrective treatment. I turned down braces due to a metal phobia and at the time (I was 16) my parents could not afford the invisalign braces. I’m now 18 and as the dentist warned me that my teeth would move (this is due to having my 2 fangs out as they grew in front of my teeth with two flat ones behind them. I really want veneers and the question is how much does it cost per tooth. I’ve researched loads but haven’t ever found an accurate price!

I Am Experiencing Movement Of My Teeth After Orthodontic Treatment, Should I Contact My Orthodontist?

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
Q.

Dr Butt, despite retaining my teeth after recent orthodontic treatment, I have noticed that my bite has shifted and is wearing down the molar enamel surfaces of the teeth as they are looking more yellow and worn. I feel my front teeth have moved inwards slightly, which has caused the bite to shift. This has given me reason to worry that the new uncomfortable bite that I am experiencing is wearing my lovely teeth down by the day, as I can feel them knocking each other. Should I consult my orthodontist, who made my retainers, about it or is this something that will rectify itself? When I wear my retainer the bite stabilises but when I take it out it shifts and is scraping the teeth. I hope that you can help me with this problem. Thanks.

Am I Stuck With Overlapping Front Teeth For The Rest Of My Life?

Friday, May 31st, 2013
Q.

Okay Dr I have a slight issue with how straight my teeth are, it’s a little awkward because it is not my whole mouth. It’s simply my two front teeth overlap, the rest of my teeth are fine. It looks as if one of my two front teeth is longer than the other one. It looks terrible I don’t like to smile or laugh or even talk to people because I get so embarrassed. Lately they have been causing me some discomfort, I’ve been to the dentist many times and they say they cannot give me braces and I cannot afford to pay for them. Will a retainer do me any good or is there anything else you recommend? Or am I stuck with this for the rest of my life?

My Teeth Are Moving As I Have Not Worn My Retainer As Instructed, What Can I Do?

Monday, April 15th, 2013
Q.

I had braces on my top and bottom teeth and they were then removed after about 1-2 years. I was given clear retainers and I haven’t been following my routine for wearing retainers for my front teeth. For a while my front teeth were fine but now my right front tooth is moving closer to the left front tooth. I have a natural gap between my 2 front teeth and my dentist removed one of my molars so that my front teeth would move as my right front tooth used to go over my left front tooth. I have a small gap where my molar used to be and now a gap is being developed between my central incisor and my lateral incisor.
I have started wearing my retainers again for every night now for the last 2 weeks but my teeth are still moving.
What should I do?
Thank you for reading this and I will wait for your advice.

Can Invisalign be used to move my teeth back into position?

Monday, January 31st, 2011
Q.

Hi,

I need to know if I qualify for the invisalign braces. Due to a missing tooth on my lower right jaw, a couple of teeth moved back. I was told that I need braces and possibly an implant to replace missing tooth. How much will it cost? Do I qualify? Thanks

What can i do about my concerns with my retainer now I have a new orthodontist owns the practice?

Thursday, January 27th, 2011
Q.

Andrew, you recommended to me recently that I see my orthodontist over concerns that my teeth are shifting under my bonded retainer. However, somebody else owns the practice now and they won’t let me see him, even though I am happy to pay for him and he did the treatment for me brilliantly. Is this unfair treatment on me and what is the best thing to do? I highly trust this orthodontist and I am upset that they won’t let me see him even though I said I will pay. Can I complain?
