Conditions with symptom: 'discoloured teeth'
my son has always had slightly discoloured and pitted front teeth. He always goes to the dentist to have his teeth checked. I believe its some sort of hyperplasia (I think). Is there anything he can have done. Would laser treatment or teeth whitening be a solution or woudl I be wasting my money. Can this be done on the NHS
Hi, I'm Megan and I'm nearly 16 years old. I have stained teeth and are discoloured. I don't smoke, drink and I have a healthy diet as well as brush my teeth twice a day. Though I treat my teeth brilliantly nothing ever seems to help them become whiter or less patchy. As a 15 year old I am very worried this is going to effect my future. Is there anything I can do before it is too late?
My teeth is discoloured and need whitening. However, I got 4 false teeth, 2 bridges, 1 crown and 1 stick on tooth. I want to whiten my teeth but these false one would still be yellow. What can I do?
Im 22 years old and have really discoloured teeth. they cause me to become depressed. i never go out or socialise with anyone due to the embarrassment of my teeth. is there any chance of help from you's or any alternatives for this problem that you could suggest as i never confront my own dentist due to them never doing anything to help this problem.
YOu will get a lot out of looking up on google .... wellness momma teeth . She is very knowledgeable about natural ways to defeat gum infections. Some of the dentist's are way over priced and they don't necessarily like to hear someone is doing well with low cost natural items , without their HIGH priced dental procedures. ALso do a search for essential oils dental . Will get a lot of info and very reasonable ways to solve some of your dental problems. Good Luck ...
I'm 19 years old and my teeth are discoloured, rotten and put a major downer on my confidence. I've been to the dentist to try and get things sorted but all I felt was embarrassment and shame about the state I have let my teeth get in, I've not been back since then and my teeth are only getting worse. I don't want to smile anymore because of what people think, I'm too embarrassed to even smile fully in front of my family and long term boyfriend. I want full dental implants but obviously I can't afford the massive £30,000 pay out. Does anyone have any advice on alternative options or financial aid? Thank you.
My teeth have become discoloured because I have been on and off (more on than off) antibiotics for more than four months. Will they go back to normal? I don't have much to smile about due to being ill for this long but this is adding insult to injury
My teeth are discoloured and it really knocks my confidence although others don't realise they stand out to me, any whitening solutions that work, I have tried peal drops and they don't work, thanks
My teeth are in pretty poor shape after my childhood and my reluctance to clean my teeth. I'm living with the consequences now, but thankfully I am brushing my teeth twice a day currently. However, my top 2 teeth have began to rot at the top of the tooth where it meets the gum, and I have had numerous fillings. Is there anything I can do to make the appearance of my teeth better, make the teeth whiter and look more healthy. And also, disguise or fix the rotted area between my top two teeth and my gum.
The most suitable solution is to have 'composite' restorations placed which are white - this must be done by a dentist and is available on the NHS for anterior teeth. Keep on top of your brushing etc., stop smoking and avoid foods that stain teeth including wine/curry etc.
the rot at the top of your teeth is because you are not cleaning your teeth properly. i would advise a trip to the dentist to have the rot removed and filling placed, and thena trip to the hygienist for a very strict oral hygiene regime
over 4 years ago I damaged both my big toe nails under a plimpth of a bed.it was veryvery painful.they now grow badly discoloured and every so often I loose the nails and new ones are underneath but then these then get discoloured,doesn't look nice at all and in the summer i just have to keep nail varnish on them.
Hi I'm stevie and I'm coming 26, for the past 9 years my teeth are yellow and the enamel is off most my teeth, I used to drink a lot of fizzy drinks when I was in my teens. I always have to fillings done because I'm always breaking and chipping my teeth and I also smoke I know that doesn't help my teeth but I have tried to quit a few times in the past. But I have bad anxiety problems that I just can't socialise with people because I don't want people seeing my teeth, I can't remember when the last time I actually smiled. Because of my teeth I get badly depressed and there days that I don't eat beacuse I scared of breaking my teeth. I have no confidence or self esteemm, when I see people in street they have nice perfect teeth. I hate my teeth and I hate myself for what I have done to them. Can anybody help or give me advice?
