Hi. I had my second premolar and first premolar done by my dentist. I wasn't advised that those teeth are not to have white fillings on nhs and I endured treatment where a silver filling was placed in. After discovering what was done to me I asked if I could have the white filling but was told white filling isn't covered by nhs. I paid £180 to have both teeth refilled with white filling. I wonder if this trarment should have b...

I had a crown fitted on the NHS 6 montgs ago. It has now broken and taken the 'base/pin/stub' of the tooth with it. My dentist has informed me it is up repairable as a Crown. As the work was under taken less than 12 months ago, am I entitled to any form of treatment to rectify the problem?

I have been attending the same NHS dental practice for 45 years and unfortunately my dentist has recently retired and sold his dental practice. The new owners have introduced their own dentists for which I have been appointed one. My new dentist is very thorough in his explanation of dental issues and the work he is carrying out but I am becoming concerned at the standard of his dentistry as I have had ongoing issues to my low...

30 years ago I had 4 crowns, the upper incisors placed to reduce gaps between my teeth. One of the four was on a post due to the original being broken off as a child. A few years ago one of the pre canines had the root split and had to be extracted. I was given a plate for the missing crown along with a replacement molar for an extraction I had. All was fine until a couple of years ago when I had to have 3 upper left pre molar...

I have just had the second stage of my root canal treatment done. My dentist did his best but I have deep roots and its a molar with 3 roots. He showed me on an x-ray afterwards that in one of the roots he could not reach the root canal filling all the way to the top of the root having to leave probably about 1mm unfilled. He explained that trying harder could result in breaking through the root canal which I have had 13 years...

Hi, I was chewing some gum and either part of my tooth broke off or a crown (I can't actually remember) my dentist has told me that my only option is to pay £650 for a root canal "under the microscope" or have the tooth removed. Would a standard root canal treatment on the NHS not be sufficient? Last time I went to the same dentist he told me I would require a root canal, and that they were not provided by the NHS - therefore ...

I am an NHS patient and have been advised to have a back tooth extracted, which I do not want although it is sometimes painful. I have had a private quote from a different dentist (for root canal treatment) which is cheaper than the private quote received from my NHS Dentist. My question is, if I have the private treatment at the dentist who quoted the lower fee, could I then go back to my NHS dentist for further treatment in ...
