I need a full smile makeover, with braces, veneers and tooth whitening. What should I have first?

October 27th, 2011
Q.

I need a full smile makeover, all my teeth are healthy and as far as I can tell I don’t have gum disease in any form as my teeth dont bleed, there’s no inflammation… anyway I was thinking I should start with the brace. my teeth are slightly over lapped and stained as well as one that has a large corner chipped off so I believe a veneer may be adequate for this. What would you say was best both in terms of a brace- basically what brace generally sorts out crooked teeth best/quickest and when would you have the brace, I’d need that veneer, teeth whitening and a brace and as such want the brace to take as little time as is possible for it to do so?

Why aren’t my braces off after two years of treatment?

October 27th, 2011
Q.

I Have fixed orthadontics systems fitted to both rows of my teeth. I am absolutely hate them and have for the duration of my treatment, I will live though because I know its all about the end result and im happy to wait it out to see this. the problem is that When I had my initial assesment before the braces were actually fitted I was told that my treatment time was predicted to be around 20-24 months to close gaps in my gap teeth. We’ve just passed 24 months and the teeth have not yet closed I wanted to ask you If You knew how long it should take for traditional braces to close a consistent gap of initially about 2mm Id say in the treatment time I’d say its just about halved that gap- which in theory leads me into another two years of braces which isn’t happening no matter what the end result? what are your thought on this situation please I fell like the dentist isn’t taking me seriously.

How frequently will I need to visit my dentist once my braces are fitted?

October 27th, 2011
Q.

Hello, I saw an offer on Groupon to have Invisible STb Lingual Braces on either your top or lower teeth for £975 (inc. retainer). However, in the next few months, I will be travelling on and off. Can you please let me know how frequently I would need to have appointments once the braces are fitted – and is it a big problem if I am away for, say a month, and can’t have the appointment during that time. Any other advice you have would be appreciated too. Thank you. Louise

What can I do to make my teeth whiter after my braces come off?

October 27th, 2011
Q.

Finally after a very long wait I am getting my braces off next week!!!!! Is there anything that you can suggest to help make my teeth white and loosen the glue for when they come off so then they don’t hurt as much? I’ve been told to rinse my mouth with very weak peroxide, i really don’t want my lovely straight teeth to be yellow and discoloured when i do get my braces off. thanks for any tips that you can give me

My braces feel like they’re going to rip my face off, is that normal?

October 27th, 2011
Q.

hello Tif, I had braces put on last week and In feel like they are going to pull my face off- teeth first! I have been told that I would feel some pressure and that they would take some getting used to but to be honest they haven’t given me much of a lisp or an any other issue, they do rub a bit on the inside of my lips and cheeks which I think is going to sting when it starts to have an effect. but for now the main issueis with the pressure being applied to my teeth if this keeps up they will be where they must in days but ill wont! could you tell me if they should be like this and how long if they are the pressure applied to teeth lasts? surely it cannot be the whole 18 month course of treatment? I thank you in advance for any feedback that may help.

What effects does a brace have on your facial features?

October 27th, 2011
Q.

hi, Dr Hutchinson can you please tell me the effects that a brace has on the patients face please? this may sound weird indeed I know but still. I have had my braces of for about a week now and people have mentioned that I look a bit gaunt? I have always been really slim- never properly skinny but my face has always been really defined so to speak, now though- and I have noticed it myself but hadn’t paid it too much attention as I was happy to have my brace off but my face does seem slimmer? it might not be anything to do with the braces but I have never changed my diet and after checking it seems I haven’t lost any weight, so it lead me to believe it was down to this,? could you potentially shed some light on the situation please. tah

…by the way I cannot leave my teeth alone!

I need 3/4 teeth moving, will six month smiles be good enough and can I spread the cost?

October 19th, 2011
Q.

Hi,
I am in my forties and have crooked front top teeth which I really want sorted out. I am limited by time as I work abroad on 6/7 month contracts and I have seen the 6 month smile option which seems attractive. Can I pay monthly for this sort of treatment? I am in London from November for a few months. I only need 3/4 teeth moving to straighten them as I have a small gap they can move into. Are there any other options for me? Thank you
