Q.I have a gap between my front teeth row. went to near by dental clinic and she suggested me to have a cap.Its looking wide and having different color. I can't even smile now.can you please suggest me if i have a clip.does that really close gap between teeth permanently.and how long i should have it. or is there any way to close these gaps between the teeth.
A. The space between teeth can be closed with bonding, this is the most economical and conservative way.

The best long term solution would be porcelain veneers, and that only cover a small portion of the fronts of the teeth.

In regard to the orthodontic treatment we need to examine you.

I have 7 silver fillings mainly on my back teeth and every time I laugh or when i am talking to somebody I am aware that people can see these and they have been bothering me more lately since starting my new job. Is it possible to get these replaced with white fillings on the NHS?
If you are really worried about the silver filling then you can change it into a GIC or a composite filling. if the cavity is small GIC filling can be given or if the cavity is larger than composite restorations can be given.

My gums are receding and my teeth are now very sensitive what can I do myself to reverse the process, does this happen because i am brushing too hard, if I use a softer brush will my gums come back. I cannot stand the pain and if i try to scratch the top of my tooth with my nail it really hurts. What should I do?
The sensitivity can be due to the recession. One of the reasons can be hard brushing. so better to brush little softly. Any other periodontal problems can also cause recession. so it is better you consult a dentist to know whether any periodontal problem is there and the treatment plan can be planned according to it.

28. I have a cross bite, with a smaller upper and slightly larger lower, am a singer with no time off for anything drastic – do you have any suggestions? There is a lot of wear on the front 3 teeth (UR1, LL1, LL2). I am very interested to know what's possible?
The best to treat is orthodontic treatment (braces). But orthodontic treatment varies from 10 to 12 months based on your profile and the problem that you have.
