There are simply two options to replace completely missing teeth. One is conventional complete denture which is removable. And other is implant supported dentures. You need to consult the dentist to have different options discussed.

It may be possible that your previous filling is dislodged and there is decay in that tooth. Go to your dentist he will take a xray and may suggest a root canal treatment of that particular tooth.

A tooth paste does not contribute to the pain in the tooth. You should meet a dentist soon and get to know the reason behind the pain. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate-user, teeth become sensitive to cold food-stuff and water due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1. Brushing your teeth too hard 2. Gum diseases 3. Dental cavity if you are applying too much pressure while brushing, it is likely to lead to a condition called as attrition, wherein the the outermost tough layer of the teeth (enamel) begins to wear, exposing the underlying structures that are more sensitive to cold stuff. If that is the case, you need to use a soft brush and put minimal pressure on your teeth while brushing. Also, you must switch to an anti-sensitivity toothpaste which will help reduce your problem to a considerable extent. In case you have an inadequately maintained oral hygiene, it is likely that you may have developed a gum problem, which is manifesting as sensitivity. For that, you would be required to get a thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist. It will solve your problem. Besides the above, dental cavities also cause abnormal sensations to cold water. You will have to get it checked from a dentist, and if such a cavity is present, it may require a filling. For the second part of your question, the shade of your teeth can be improved by procedures such as bleaching and laser tooth whitening. No whitening toothpastes can improve the color of teeth. Hope that helps.

Hi, metal caps are stronger than the porcelain or ceramic tooth but colour of ceramic tooth is more aesthetic. If you had rct in back molars you can opt for metals. But these days toth coloured aesthetic material caps are preferred.

I have dental problem. Bleeding in gums, gums are swelling and foul breathe. What to do? Some home made remedies.

I have dental problem. Bleeding in gums, gums are swelling and foul breathe. What to do? Some home made remedies.
Bleeding gums with swelling and foul breath are indicative of gum disease due to improper hygiene leading to tartar accumulation on your teeth. You need to visit your dentist and gets thorough dental cleaning done to get rid of the problem. After that you can maintain your teeth and gums by following the routine cleaning protocols. No home remedy will remove the tartar from your teeth. Some remedy may reduce the bleeding for the time being but any delay in getting the tartar removed may lead to recession (root ward movement) of your gums.

I am 36 years old my teeth is yellow what should I do.

BDS
Dentist,
I am 36 years old my teeth is yellow what should I do.
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing. Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

For teeth whitening you need bleachibg and polishing and scaling also if plaque deposition is there on teeth surface. Brush regularly two times. Rinse your mouth after each meal. Avoid too much tea, coffee and chocolate.

See a Dr. Immediately. If sensation lasts only as long as the cold and hot items are in mouth then it can be corrected with least discomfort, pain and less money. If neglected then root canal or extraction will be the answer.
