Can my front four discoloured teeth be whitened, despite having root canal treatment in the past?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011
Q.

I have root canal on my 4 top teeth about 5 years ago and they are very discoloured,especially the front 2..I am worried about a couple of things 1) I spoke to my very young recently qualified dentist about having them whitened and she said no prob..But when I was researching online I read teeth that have had root canal can’t be whitened..Also I read that root canal teeth should have a crown on them straight away as they could snap and break at any time,I had the root canal done at 2 different dentists..and neither of the dentists mentioned anything..I am now petrified my teeth are going to break at any moment..Any advice please?

Can you suggest what treatment to use to correct my inward-facing bottom teeth and outward-facing top teeth?

Monday, January 17th, 2011
Q.

Hi Dr.Solanki,

I had undergone root canal treatment on my upper front teeth which broke when i was a kid. Apparently I had to cover that tooth with a cap and my upper row of front teeth are projecting a little outwards. My lower row of teeth are crooked and are pointing a little inwards. Please suggest me a way to get my teeth aligned ??

Will my speech return to normal soon after getting dentures?

Thursday, January 13th, 2011
Q.

On Tuesday my dentist removed my front four teeth which were root canal filled with amalgum. One tooth has become loose following a fall, the other three had also been damaged. I have a neuro condition and he was concerned about the amalgum fillings saying that they could be making the neuro problems worse. I have a denture fitted, which looks good, but I am really struggling with speaking (S’s mainly). Will this improve, or should I look at getting something else done?
Woken up for the past 2 mornings without a headache, and ‘buzzing’ in legs seems much improved – so just speech to get sorted!

How can I have my tooth restored without damaging other teeth by way of grinding them down?

Thursday, January 13th, 2011
Q.

I have a missing near-front tooth, which was originally replaced with a bayonet fitting into the root canal. This has now gone and root removed. I feel reluctant to have the two teeth either side ground down as the means to provide anchor points. Do I have any other options without tampering with and ‘destroying its ‘neighbours’?

I have a chipped crown, should i replace it or get an implant?

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011
Q.

5 years ago I had two upper crowns (Empress 2). My orginal teeth were lost as a child and prior to these had metal backed crowns. 3 Years ago one of the tooths had root canal. That same crown is now chipped and needs replacement. Question is whether its viable to replace the crown, if that’s indeed possible, or a complete implant ?

I have been quoted £389 for a veneer. Is this a good price?

Monday, January 10th, 2011
Q.

i have been quoted £389 for a veneer on my upper right incisor. I had root canal on the tooth and now it has started to turn grey. Do you think that is a good price for the work and is a porcelain veneer my best option?
