This young lady had a root filling on her upper left central incisor many years ago and consequently, the tooth had gradually discoloured.

She did not want to have veneers fitted at this stage so we carried out a course of whitening which reduced the discolouration to a degree she found acceptable.

We plan to improve the appearance further in the future with whitening 'top-ups' to lighten the tooth further.

This lady was unhappy with the alignment, shape, size and colour of her teeth.

Her upper right front tooth was mobile.

The first stage was to extract the loose upper front tooth and straighten the upper and lower teeth using Inman Aligners and Braces.

The upper Clear Braces included a false tooth so that she never had any time with a gap in the front.

After tooth whitening we created a new smile with bridges, veneers and crowns.

The different height and colours of these teeth needed to be corrected in different ways. As before the first step is to return all the teeth to the same colour by whitening, in this case this was achieved by a home whitening system.

The acrylic temporary crowns and veneers gave a marked improvement.

The final stage involved cementing the permanent crowns and veneers, providing the natural tooth-like appearance that can only be obtained with porcelain.

The solution was to use veneers that our skilful technician carefully colour matched to the adjacent teeth and, when fitting, we used a cement that would block out the discoloured tooth.

Reviews The service and care at Belle Vue dental practice is excellent!

I booked for a 'smile makeover' consultation appointment as I was unhappy how my 4 existing crowns were looking. They were old, discoloured and my gum had started to recede causing a grey line above one tooth.

Mrs Gardiner listened to all my concerns sympathetically, took photographs and moulds of my teeth, discussed options and followed up with a quote. I decided to bleach my teeth one month before replacing my old crowns to achieve a brighter overall smile. Mrs Gardiner supplied the bleach and trays that I wore for 1 hour every evening for around 2 weeks. I was supported throughout this process with good results.

I was really nervous the day I arrived at the surgery to have my old crowns drilled out and temporary crowns fitted. Mrs Gardiner and Dawn settled me in and talked me through what would happen and put my mind at rest. Within 5 minutes and being anesthetised (local) I couldn't feel a thing and all I had to cope with was the noise of the drill, which really wasn't that bad. Mrs Gardiner is so calm and reassuring I was confident I was in good hands whilst Dawn made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment.

I was so pleased with the temporary teeth that I wore for 2 weeks, they were a great shape and colour, no one even noticed I was having dental work done!

The day I had my new crowns fitted was such a wonderful feeling and relief. I am so pleased with my new smile which is much brighter and looks more natural. I would thoroughly recommend investing in your smile if you are unhappy as it not only looks really great on the outside but you feel really great on the inside too. I feel much more confident when I smile and love seeing my teeth in photos now!

Finally, I received an excellent after care service from Mrs Gardiner and her team to ensure the dental work was a success and also posed for 'after' photos to complete the process. Reviews

The central upper right tooth had been root filled, this led to some gum shrinkage that created a dark area at the margin of the veneer. The veneer appears dark due to tooth darkening beneath it showing through.
