Composite Restorations in Lichfield – Lisa’s Story

Why Did You Choose Spires Dental Clinic For Your Dental Treatment?

Lots of my friends come here & they all have lovely teeth.

How Did You Find Your First Visit With Us And It What Way Did It Help You With The Decisions You Needed To Make?

It was incredibly relaxed yet informative. It wasn’t about the sale of treatment it was about what it would take to me happy and Stuart insisted that was my decision to make and nobody else’s.

Why Did You Choose To Have Your Teeth Built Up With Composite Restorations? Why Not Veneers?

One visit and they’re done! I honestly don’t think veneers would’ve looked any better.

A Dentists View

Lisa had needed composite fillings in her front teeth about 3 years ago that had started to chip and stain prematurely.  Clearly the result was not a good one and Lisa was worried about showing her teeth to all around her.  We also felt that by the strategic addition of composite (white filling material) we could ‘straighten’ Lisa’s teeth and make them look more in proportion, providing added value rather than just replacing the fillings.

We also spoke to Lisa about:

  • Veneers – which we advised her to stay away from given the increased cost (£650 per tooth) and the need to drill away some of the good tooth structure.
  • Braces – which we thought was a good idea BUT how could Lisa make a decision on the need for a brace when her teeth looked how they did.
  • Whitening- its a good idea to whiten your teeth prior to cosmetic treatment if you don’t like the colour of your teeth.

Lisa’s treatment went really well, and she was an excellent patient but in these cases it is difficult to prepare someone for the change it will make.  When we showed Lisa the huge change, she was stunned by the difference in her smile, enough so that she was speechless.

Thankfully Lisa loved the result, enough so that she was happy to contribute to our blog 😊

We love treatments like this as we have made a massive difference without compromising the health of people teeth at all.  The treatment is also reversible just in case she wants to have braces in the future or porcelain veneers.

Total treatment time: One 2 hour 30 minute appointment

Total treatment cost: £538.

A journey to a happier smile – Ravi’s Story

Ravi had a gap between his two front teeth and had always felt insecure about his smile. He had wanted to do something about it for a long time and as a Pharmacist he is working with the public and wanted a smile he could feel confident with.

 

Why did you want cosmetic dental work done?

I wanted it done because I felt insecure regarding the gap between my front two teeth. When I looked into the mirror I didn’t like my teeth very much, and was looking at various options on how to either close the gap or have veneers. It was something I wanted done for many years and when I looked at photographs I kept noticing the gap that I have.

 

Why did you choose Spires?

I went to the practice as I was in the area for a few weeks staying at a friend’s. I went to the practice not knowing what to expect and I registered with them. Spires went through the various options I could use and the cost of each. I asked them to advise me on what they would do if they were in my position. Spires gave me various options, but advised that I firstly could try a cost-effective way to reduce the gap by using some sort of filling material which closes the gap. They showed me an example of this and it was impossible to tell where the filling was placed on the teeth!

 

How did you feel after your first consultation?

My first consultation was great, I felt really welcomed. As this was an unfamiliar dental practice I was weary of how good the dentists here actually were. However, they knew what they were talking about and I felt confident going forward with them to look after my teeth. We tried the moulding on the first consultation to see what it would look like and if my teeth would look too wide. I felt reassured that the treatment would go to plan and my front teeth wouldn’t look too big. I liked the fact that I was able to see the end result before anything permanent happened. I had confidence in the practice and went ahead with the treatment on the second consultation.

 

One thing that stood out was how Spires listened to exactly what my concern was and what I wanted to achieve. This was shown when they made sure they kept a 0.5mm gap that I requested between my front teeth!

 

How has the treatment affected your life?

It has greatly affected my life as I don’t feel insecure when I smile, and my teeth look great. Spires were very professional when doing the treatment and were very particular when treating my teeth as they looked at every detail to make sure they were symmetrical. I would definitely go back to Spires for any future treatments I might need. I have never felt so relaxed and confident in a dental practice before and highly recommend visiting Spires!

The fillings we used to reduce the gap between Ravi’s front teeth was a cost-effective, and easy way to reform Ravi’s smile. It also allowed us to bespoke our treatment for Ravis needs and produce an end outcome which he envisioned.
