Case Study

This patient came to us after not visiting a dentist for 40+ years due to having a bad experience as a child. He was very self conscious of his teeth as they wasn't perfectly straight and felt braces would have took to long to achieve his expectations.

This patient booked in for a consultation with Dr Dhody to discuss options of how to achieve straighter teeth, after an in depth discussion. A custom made treatment plan was made, as the patient agreed the best treatment would be to have 5 Emax veneers.

The treatment commenced immediately the patient had impressions taken ready for a diagnostic wax up -  which is a  physical model of what we want your teeth to look like at the end of treatment, to help us agree on what you want your teeth to look like, and to help us plan accurately a strategy to achieve it.

Second appointment was 1 week later - shape, size and colour was agreed upon and Dr Dhody started preparing the teeth by filing them down slightly and placing temporary veneers on, whilst they are made at the dental laboratory.

Third appointment - The fit of the veneers. The veneers are placed onto the natural teeth using a special veneer cement.

The patient was extremely happy with the end results, here is a small section of the review which was left on Google for us:

"Wow!!! Wow!! Wow!!! The final results are Just Brilliant. The look, feel, fitting etc. are better than I’d ever hoped for.

Thank you Rikki and your team for the fantastic experience, professionalism, care, attention and time to give me a smile wich exceeds all my expectations.
Has it restored my faith in dentists? Well - only the 1 dentist 😊"
