Smile of The Month: October 2008
This patient presented with concerns about her dominant upper front teeth.
Eight porcelain veneers and a gum lift on four teeth were used to create a more ideal proportion and a wider smile.
What motivated you to change your smile?
I’ve been unhappy with my teeth since I was a teenager and have just been waiting until I could afford to have cosmetic dental treatment.
What treatment did you have
Veneers and gum lift
How did you feel during the process, was your treatment comfortable?
Yes, I loved the DVD goggles. Once you had the anaesthetic you couldn’t feel anything and were able to just switch off.
How do you feel about the result, did it match or exceed your expectations?
Very happy with the result, they look very natural.
Is it something you would recommend to family and friends?
Yes I have already!
How has your new smile changed your life, what difference will it make to you?
It means I can smile widely without worrying about how I will look in photos.
Sum up your experience in one word
How did the team contribute to you experience?
I loved James – He made me feel very comfortable. He reined me in when I wanted something outrageous, like ultra bright white teeth.
