New smile in less than 24 hours?
Patient spotlight: The benefits of implant-retained denture treatment
It sounds practically impossible doesn’t it? But thanks to a technique called composite bonding, getting a new smile in a day is achievable providing a dentist deems you suitable for the treatment.
Composite veneers – achieved via the art of composite bonding – have grown in popularity over the last two years, and it’s not always about striving for a perfectly symmetrical ‘Hollywood smile’. While many patients do want to achieve an impactful, full smile, sometimes others just want to tweak a few teeth. Composite bonding caters for both of those needs.
Designing a smile that’s you all over
Many patients visit me when their teeth are failing, enquiring about the possibility of removable dentures. They’re often apprehensive about having a set of ‘fake teeth’ in their mouth and concerned about how they’ll feel when eating and drinking.
Whilst removable dentures can be an effective solution to replace teeth, many patients are unaware that there are other options available to them, including dentures retained by dental implants.
Online service for referring dentists launched
One of the most important skills as a dentist is being able to interpret exactly what a patient is looking for, and devise a treatment plan that will deliver those results.
This patient was keen to improve her smile, but specifically wanted a more natural end result that she felt would be in keeping with her age and that would seamlessly blend in with her other teeth.
Having referred patients to other dentists and specialists in the past, I’m mindful that the process needs to be professional and as straightforward as possible.
In the last 12 months, I’ve started to see a significant rise in the number of patients referred to me by other dentists both across the North West and also further afield.
