    Default Advice required

    Hi, i'm not sure if anyone will be able to assist but my mouth is in desperate need of repair.
    Basically my teeth came through with no enamel and so were always going to be a pain, i had a massive problem with my dentist when i was in high school and basically did the stupid thing of never going back.

    I am now looking for a new dentist but in the meantime i am just seeking some advice on the sort of treatments that will be available, i'm pretty sure i will need completley new teeth and know i will have to pay a lot of money out but it will be worth it.

    Any advice on what work will need to be done? i know its a vague question but i'm concerned as im terrified of the dentist!

    it sounds like you will need a full mouth reconstruction and if that is the case then will need to see someone who specialises in such treatments like a prosthodontist or restorative specialist or conversely if you can find someone who has an interest in these complex treatments and the additional training, you could see them.
    you could ask to be referred on the NHS as you may be covered because of your congenital absence of enamel from your teeth, otherwise privately you would be looking at a significant amount of money
