Re: what does tartar on teeth looklike

Tartar on ur teeth will look almost like a wall of white (or yellow if u smoke) along the margins of ur teeth & gingiva.....if u have been receiving dental treatmnt for this then it shud be away, however the teeth may still be stained and this is wer the brown comes from, also dependant on how long the tartar was ther for the gums may have receeded and this is why it looks like u have an "exposed" area....

Hope this helps

Re: what does tartar on teeth look like?

'm sure it will be working fine, i [removed] have seen a few mouths i am sure will be worse than yours, main thing is you are working on gettin it better

If you have gaps from teeth being taken out speak to your dentist about a bridge either fixed or resin retained, or a crown, obv the most expensive would be an implant! With regards to the receeding gums, getting some resin buccaly on the tooth may help, your dentist will shape it to mke it like your natural tooth, this is most beneficial if the exposed area is at the front of the the tooth (ie towards your lips)

Speak to your dentist because there ar so many thing that can be done these days to give i a sparkling smile

Hope this helps -x-
