This 25 year old patient broke his front tooth playing football; he was naturally upset and at first glance, it looks pretty bad. In the past, we would have needed a crown to repair it

In the past, we would have needed a crown to repair it, but with modern cosmetic bonding materials, we can add directly to the broken tooth and craft the material to the exact shape and colour of the original. This was done in a single appointment, on the same day as the injury occurred.

Patient: 40+ year old female who presented with “crooked” front teeth, that had been a source of frustration for her for many years.

This patient, 23 years of age, presented as she was unhappy with her smile. She didn’t want to go the traditional orthodontic treatment route, over a 2 year course, as she was looking for a ‘quick fix’. She went to a dentist in Turkey, who made a treatment plan consisting of two extractions and 15 units of bridgework! A very destructive treatment plan, especially since the patient had perfectly healthy teeth!!

The patient saw the fault of this treatment plan, and decided to go with something a bit more conservative. We used the 6 month smiles technique to correct her mis-aligned teeth, adjusting her orthodontic wires every month.

She is now whitening her teeth, to give them that extra wow-factor. Needless to say, the patient is delighted with the life changing results.

Duration of treatment: 8 months

Dentist: Dr. Riley Lewis
Cost €2600

This patient was very conscious of her rotated front central incisor teeth.  These teeth protruded her lip, and made her other front teeth look darker.  She opted for Six Month Smiles on the upper teeth only.  After 7 months, the teeth look great! She is delighted with the results.  The after picture shows the permanent retainer we place to ensure the teeth stay in place!

Cost: €1900 payable over the duration of her treatment.

In dentistry, there are a number of different solutions to every problem; in fact deciding which treatment is best suited for each individual patient can be as challenging as actually carrying out the treatment.

This patient did not like the appearance of her smile, in fact she had hated it for most of her life, and hardly ever smiled. When I aksed her why she had never done something about it before, she told me that she was worried:�
a) it would cost too much
b) it would take too long
c) she absolutely did not want braces
d) she wanted them to look better – they didn’t have to look “perfect”

We discussed all the ways to improve her smile, and decided to use advanced dental bonding techniques to add to the teeth and close the spaces. This treatment is inexpensive, can be carried out in one appointment and does not involve braces, so it was ideal for her.

Treatment time: 3 hours
Treatment cost: €920
