“Following an accident in early 2010 I was left with a lot of damage to my upper front teeth; two were knocked out and another two were left twisted. Needless to say it all looked pretty unsightly. After visiting five or six specialists for advice on how best to proceed with treatment, I had a number of different options I could go for, including various combinations fixed braces, invisalign, dentures, implants and veneers. It was not easy choosing which route to go down but in the end I decided to go with Rob’s course of treatment – a single implant with two teeth on to replace the missing teeth, and veneers on the two twisted teeth to make them appear straight again. This was, in his opinion, the most predictable course of treatment and also the quickest way to get back to having a normal smile again and I am very glad I took his advice.
We had to wait a few months before fitting the implant screw in order to let the gums heal fully, so I had a temporary bridge fitted for the interim period. Given that I would need to have the temporary bridge for the best part of a year I was very glad that when I looked in the mirror after having it fitted it looked just like two natural straight teeth. A few months down the line I went back to have the implant screw fitted. I was a bit nervous before the appointment as I guess most implant patients would be, but I was made to feel at ease from start to finish during the procedure, and it was over with in about an hour or so and was not painful at all.
Another six months down the line and the implant had taken well and was ready to have the new teeth fitted to it. I had the implant teeth fitted where the temporary bridge had been, and at the same time had the veneers fitted to the two twisted teeth. When I looked in the mirror afterwards I was amazed at how good they looked. My teeth we ok but not perfect before the accident, but now I would say that I have absolutely perfect front teeth and I would highly recommend Mr Tennet to anyone looking to get their smile improved, or as in my case, repaired. The whole team were great throughout the process so I would like to thank Gurjit and Amy for their help organising it too. The work was not cheap but I would urge anyone looking to get something like this done to go to a highly experienced and skilled dentist like Rob as you will have those teeth on show for the rest of your life so its important to get the best job you can done. Thanks very much for all your hard work!”
