13 Jun 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.
How Did You Find The Treatment? Two Hours In The Dental Chair Sounds Scary To Most People, But What Was It Like Form Your Point Of View?
I didn’t feel a thing!! Every element of the treatment was explained. It was bizarrely quite relaxing!
You Seemed A Little Stunned, Happy, But Stunned, When We First Showed You The Result, Why Do You Think That Is?
I was gobsmacked that these were actually my teeth and they looked amazing! Couldn’t get my head around it & now I have I haven’t stopped smiling.
How Do You Feel Now About What We Have Achieved And Would You Recommend The Process To Anybody Else?
As far as I’m concerned you’ve achieved the smile that I never thought I’d have and for that I’m so grateful. Would highly recommend you and the treatment you provided to anyone.
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.
