Problem and Solution

Problem:

This lady came to us very unhappy with her old crowns and all previous dentistry.

Solution:

A full smile makeover exceeded her expectations and she is now able to smile with confidence.

Client Interview:

What motivated you to change your smile?

I had disliked my old dentistry for a very long time. It was badly done and outdated and it made me look older. I didn’t want to make the same mistake again and rush into treatment. After months of research and consultations, I decided to go to the best place possible and ending up with a smile I absolutely love. No compromises or cutting corners this time.

What treatment did you have?

Gum lift, eight veneers and ten crowns

How did you feel during the process, was your treatment comfortable?

The process was time consuming of course, but I felt very comfortable and didn’t feel any pain.

How do you feel about the result, did it match or exceed your expectations?

I knew exactly what I wanted but I didn’t think it was possible to achieve. James showed me many pictures of London Smile Clinic patients with similar problems to mine and the transformations were amazing. My already high expectations have been exceeded, most definitely. I still can’t believe how great my new smile looks.

Is it something you would recommend to family and friends?

I already have.

How has your new smile changed your life, what difference will it make to you?

I am an outgoing and sociable person and being able to talk and smile with confidence is hugely satisfying. I was scared to laugh out load before as I was conscious of my teeth. Not having this constant obstruction is “life changing” yes!

Sum up your experience in one word:

Fabulous.

They were always there for me, happy to assist with anything really. They are a great team!
