Smile of The Month: November 2010: Case 1
Prior to full mouth reconstruction the crowded lower teeth were aligned with fixed braces. After completion of orthodontic treatment bridges, crowns and veneers were used to replace unsightly old dentistry to create a functional and aesthetic result.
What motivated you to change your smile?
My existing teeth and dental work was in a bad condition. I felt that I looked awful!
What treatment did you have
After orthodontic work i had major replacements of crowns, new crowns and bridge.
How did you feel during the process, was your treatment comfortable?
I felt in good hands throughout and the discomfort was less than expected. The long sessions were tiring but I had very little pain after the anaesthesia wore off.
There was always a pleasant friendly atmosphere.
How do you feel about the result, did it match or exceed your expectations?
I am delighted by the results which exceeds my expectations. I think there will be a long term health benefit in addition to my improved appearance.
Would you be happy to be a case study for articles in magazines?
I would like to encourage older people who can afford it to have this done. I would not mind being a case study but am not quite comfortable with being identifiable on the internet or in a publication-for third party reasons.
Is it something you would recommend to family and friends?
Absolutely unequivocally if they can afford it.
How has your new smile changed your life, what difference will it make to you?
I feel happier and more confident interacting with people whereas before treatment I knew my ugly teeth made a bad impression, i have to learn to smile again.
Sum up your experience in one word:
How did the team contribute to you experience?
The work is first class and everyone was kind, courteous, friendly and helpful. It has been a real positive happy experience being treated at the Smile clinic.
