Sam Latif's Expert Contributions
  • Can you use existing dentures for implants?

    Indeed you can. It all depends on how old your denture is. Your dentist can place 2-3 implants, then place your denture on top of the implants. That’s called over denture. You will be able to remove it to clean. Assuming we are talking about your lowers, which is hard for patients to retain it. The uppers require 4 implants. READ MORE

  • Do veneers ruin your teeth?

    All depends on the shape of your teeth. Most often, teeth are reduced by 5 mm to make room for the porcelain. Some teeth, if they are rotated, will be reduced a lot more. Check with your dentist and seek a second opinion. READ MORE

  • Do veneers stain with coffee?

    No, they don’t, but make sure the dentist uses reputable labs; not all labs are created equal. READ MORE

  • Will dental crowns fall out?

    Indeed, crowns do come out (fall out). There are several causes for this phenomena. Make sure to see your dentist on a regular basis. READ MORE

  • Anything I can do for my tooth gap?

    Several procedures can be done to correct the space, assuming it’s on the anterior teeth (front teeth). Braces are one option, or direct bonding and porcelain veneers. Seek help from your dentist, or ask your friends for a referral. Good luck. READ MORE

  • I can't fix my teeth sensitivity. What do I do?

    You must have exposed root surfaces, caused by receding gum tissues. Seek a second opinion. In the meantime you can ask your DDS to call in proscription of clinpro 5000 tooth paste for highly sensitive teeth. READ MORE
