Jared travelled from Elgin in search of cosmetic improvements to his smile. He presented with an old removable denture.
His main concern was to eliminate that and achieve a much improved upper aesthetic.
The other issues were old stained composite fillings and a black amalgam upper left; also a mix of different colours in front teeth.
Dr Brendan Murphy felt that the big challenge here was the delay in seeking advice. Jared waited so many years before he sought dental implant treatment because Highland prices “were a bit steep.”
Mini Dental Implants
Dr Murphy stated: “There wasn’t much bone left but I used a mini dental implant. That meant that more complex bone grafting was avoided although it did affect the final crown shape slightly.
We discussed it with Jared during the consultation but he was set against more surgery for grafting. He was still extremely happy with the outcome.”
The case commenced with the implant placement , then some lower teeth whitening, followed by four porcelain crowns and four Emax porcelain veneers.
Jared paid £4730 including X-rays and tooth whitening; the latter discounted by 50% for all such cosmetic dentistry cases.
