Problems with front teeth have been a constant feature of my
life. A bicycle crash, at an early age –
perhaps six or seven, remains etched in my memory as the start of endless
1970’s dentistry that, whilst tedious, time consuming and painful; appeared to
do nothing to fix the problem of an effective facial disfigurement that haunted
my childhood and teenage years.
Cracked and blackened front teeth are perhaps not the most
significant problem a person can face in life, but it is nonetheless scarring,
and character changing, and upon reaching a solution based on crowns and
bridges in my early twenties – I henceforth avoided dentists as far as
I cannot say that I was ever happy with my teeth; problems
with the front teeth were compounded by overcrowding and distortions, never
satisfactorily resolved in childhood, and over the years, each visit to the
dentist (and amalgamated filling!) seemed to make the situation just a little
Finally, when the bridge and crown structures fell out
entirely and my then dentist claimed to be unable to repair it; offering
instead, plates or the option to “go elsewhere” for implants, I resolved to
change the situation. His temporary fix
failed even to check that I had a comfortable bite!
Plates and false teeth hold no fear for me, I had plenty of experience of them in my late teens and early twenties, but I resolved to try to find a more permenant solution and after some internet research contacted 32 Whites. I cannot recommend highly enough the treatment that I have received from these guys; they took a completely different approach – first fixing all of the problems with the 70’s dentistry, and finally resolving the front teeth permanently with a row of four implants. These feel amazing! I now smile naturally and bite apples and corn on the cob on my front teeth without fear. The treatment I have received has had far-reaching consequences throughout my life.
Very happy patient P.B.
