10 Nov Patient Story – Dental Implant and Porcelain Veneers
This patient referred herself to see me complaining about the appearance of her lower front teeth and the general colour of her teeth. On further investigation revealed that she did not like the alignment and colour of her teeth.
The clinical examination revealed that the two teeth that she really hated had severe gum disease and that her teeth were darker than usual. In this situation, after teeth whitening (to improve colour), the two treatment options are:
- Braces with Dr Ciara Ennis to align the teeth.
- Extraction of the two teeth she hated, porcelain veneers and dental implants.
Our patient chose option 2 and the treatment took 4 months to complete
