Our smile should be our greatest gift – yet for many it causes the greatest embarrassment. Missing, broken, rotten, and crooked teeth are dental conditions that ruin our desire to smile.
A common view is that perfect smiles are restricted to the rich and famous and that the average Joe Blogs is just stuck with what he was born with. But Bob’s case disproves that little idea.
Bob, a typical Kiwi bloke, was embarrassed by his smile; he even felt that he had run out of options to fix it. I gave him a new smile, and with it a new lease on life. “If you’re unhappy with any element of your smile, you don’t need to sit back and hide.” Bob presented with a typical case of ‘failing dentition’. Due to some heavy-handed ‘murder house’ dentistry long ago, his teeth were falling apart. We discussed options, including rebuilding his teeth, leaving them as they were, removing them and providing dentures.
Following hours of discussion we agreed upon a full mouth reconstruction, with a combination of ceramic crowns, bridges and veneers. In four visits over four weeks, we achieved a well-balanced, strong, aesthetic smile. Remember, what works for one person may not work for another. If you’re unhappy with any element of your smile, you don’t need to sit back and hide.
