How does a dentist decide between dental crowns or veneers?

Dear Helen, the correct treatment for dull and uneven teeth may not involve crowns or veneers. Often, a less invasive approach such as orthodontics (to straighten teeth) and whitening can be very effective. Crowns can improve the alignment and shade of teeth and at the same time ...

Having worked as a dental surgeon in the public and private sector for a good number of years now, I've seen a lot of strange practices in the dental industry.

In particular, social media platforms have seen an explosion of irresponsible dental marketing. Examples include:

  • Influencers promoting DIY teeth whitening kits of unknown origin
  • Smile therapists offering teeth whitening at beauty parlours
  • Aesthetic doctors who open spas and hire beauticians to offer dental treatment to patients

I'm a firm believer in walking the talk.

  • Undergoing orthodontic treatment later in life than most people (mid 20s) despite the stigma of being an adult adorned with conventional braces.
  • Having all 4 wisdom teeth surgically removed in one sitting under local anaesthesia without sedation.

These are just some examples of how I've put myself out there to experience dental treatments first-hand so I can reassuringly tell my patients with full confidence “I did it too, and it's really quite alright.”

I don’t get it. I really don’t. I don’t understand why girls would go for plastic surgery to raise their nose bridge and cut double eyelids but walk around with a really gummy smile. Or flip a switch over a single freckle or zit, and be ok about uneven gum margins and a totally lopsided smile?

I mean, let’s take a poll here guys. Which is more unattractive? A single zit or an ugly smile? OK, I just asked my five-year-old son and he said: “Ugly smile is uglier.” Not the best way to take a poll, but you catch my drift.

Wearing braces can be rather daunting due to the amount of commitment required and time involved. The average treatment can range from 12 to 36 months (this varies due to the complexity of each case).
