Treatment: Replacement fillings in front teeth
A number of years earlier the patient had had a consultation to discuss her smile and was wishing a smile makeover of her upper teeth. However a change in circumstances meant that the patient had to postpone this treatment. She returned as one of her front teeth had gone black and she was having nightmares about losing it, however as she was still at college and was unable to afford the smile makeover. To improve her appearance we provided replacement fillings where the decay was showing and built up her front teeth to disguise their irregularity.
This has greatly improved her appearance until she is in a position to have further treatment.
Treatment: Fillings and flexible dentures
This patient had been fighting cancer and had multiple chemotherapy treatments and had recently lost her husband. She was wearing dentures that had been fitted immediately after teeth were removed, and they were no longer fitting and had broken repeatedly. She was very bothered about the appearance of her other teeth as they looked as though they had gum recession. Her treatment involved providing hygienist gum therapy then tooth coloured restorations at the gum margins, then flexible upper and lower partial dentures to fit around the other teeth.
Treatment: Full dentures
Christine was embarrassed by her smile, having worn the same dentures for very many years then the final straw was when her lower denture broke in half. She was nervous of treatment, especially impressions, but we gradually earned her trust. She is so pleased with the improvement that her smile now reaches her eyes and she has so much more confidence.
