Case Study 1 – Smile makeover
See what dramatic changes to your smile can be achieved by Dr Tom Donnelly who undertakes the complex smile makeover and implant work at Brixworth Dental Practice, Northampton. Tom has been undertaking full smile makeovers for more than 20 years and in addition to the normal dental qualification ( BDS) Tom has an MSc in Advanced General Dentistry and a second MSc in Dental Implantology.
Bob came to see Tom with broken and missing front teeth and considerable wear as you can see from the image below.
On discussion with the Bob, it was decided to use composite veneers to re-establish the aesthetics and function of the front teeth. The least damaged teeth were then used to support bridgework.
The patient and his wife are extremely happy with the result. Here is what he had to say about the treatment and on the right you can see the result.
“I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Tom for his sterling work in giving me my smile back. My ‘mole rat’ look was not an inducement to smile, however funny the joke and I was always selfconscious, not my usual self at all. With his affable manner and easy way of describing all options and procedures I was at ease straight away and knew I was in a safe and capable pair of hands. And the result ! My smile is back and I can now face the world with more than a wry grin, but laugh in the face of adversity !! Thanks again from this very happy and satisfied customer” Bob
