Dental Case Studies

These are just some of the patients we have helped recently in our Glasgow dentist practice. Some of the dental case studies may reflect your own condition or requirements - for example, tricky implants, jagged or crooked teeth, perhaps an interest in getting porcelain veneers before your wedding day. However it is always best to contact us for a free initial appointment to find out what exactly we can do for you.

About these dental case studies

Dr Murphy has worked as a dentist in Glasgow for more than twenty years and has acquired a mass of experience and knowledge which he applies to the benefit of his patients and is happy to share by way of practical examples here.

All the case summarised on this page are real dental case studies which he or his colleagues have seen in our Glasgow dental practice.

Many of them illustrate the health and psychological benefits of cosmetic dentistry and its application in a variety of situations which patients have experienced. These can be from dental injury, damage or decay to the necessity or desire to make changes for mostly cosmetic reasons.

It is important to acknowledge that desire for a cosmetic change can be just as powerful and justified as the case for replacing a broken or missing tooth.

The dental case studies listed here cover a variety of challenges for a dentist. But one thing is certain, every patient has a particular case history and we treat everyone equally as a matter of principle.

If you are interested in the possibilities for your own dental situation we would encourage you to browse the cosmetic dentistry treatments within this site and then the relevant case studies on this page.

There are also testimonials and testimonial videos throughout the website from patients who have undergone different treatments, some whose stories may particularly interest you.

However if you do not find a case which corresponds to your own situation just ask our staff, telephone or request a free consultation and we will be glad to take a look at your situation and make some recommendations and together draw up a treatment plan.

There is no point in enduring an unhappy dental situation where the means of solving it are to be found, initially, at the end of a telephone. Contact us today and we will be glad to help.
