Everyone doesn't have pearl white teeth. The shade of your teeth matches your skin colour. Still you can go for scaling and polishing. For more whiteness, go for bleaching.

Hi, teeth have a protective layer called enamel with age the enamel wears off and become thin which causes to become teeth sensitive to cold and hot. You need to get a professional check up done to know the exact cause and solution of your problem. Without checking you clinically we can't suggest anything. Regards

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.

Hello doctor, I'm alka 21 years old and I have some dental problems, which is like I feel pain only sometimes in my wisdom teeth not always and it was just mild pain not that severe and it's gone after sometimes then again repeat so can you please suggest what should I do. I'm worried. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user! Well your symptoms suggest that you suffer from Pericoronitis, which means that the gum tissues around your wisdom teeth become inflamed, on and off. It's very common with the youngsters these days as the nature is slowly eliminating the not quite used wisdom teeth as part of an evolutionary process, because our diets have become too refined, so there's not much use of extra teeth to chew the food. You should not panic and immediately visit a dentist for the check-up. He would take an X-Ray of the affected tooth and will suggest you the remedy, most probably being a "painless" extraction of the tooth. Meanwhile, just try to maintain a good oral hygiene and occasionally rinse mouth with lukewarm water with a pinch of salt added to it. It serves as a natural mouthwash. Private consult's welcome. Take Care!

Hello lybrate-user Thanks for the query As you have fractured upper anterior teeth and its matter of function as well as asthetics. I advice you to go for Zirconia Crown which is more like natural teeth they come with company warranty card. Usually They are life long things.

In fixed prosthesis, we have options of dental implants in which we drill titanium screw into the bone let it fuse with the bone for 3-4 months and then fix artificial tooth over it. The other option is bridges in which support is taken from the adjoining teeth, their cutting is done and then bridge is cemented on to them like a cap. Definitely implant is expensive than bridges but after assessing the condition of your bone and health of the surrounding structures it can be suggested whats best for you. So consult the dentist and make up your mind for what you are comfortable with in every sense.

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.

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks.

Get yourself checked by dentist for evaluation of space available for eruption of wisdom teeth. Get and xray done to check whether there is any hindrance in path of eruption. You also need to start antibiotic and analgesic therapy for subsiding the pain. Do warm water rinses with a pinch of salt 3-4 times daily.
