Spacing Between Teeth – A Case Study with Porcelain Veneers

Mark, a DJ from London, hated the excess spacing between teeth, particularly between his top and bottom front teeth.

Although he could have had his pick of dentists down south we were pleased that he chose to travel to Glasgow to make an appointment at Appletree Dental Care on the recommendation of other patients of the practice.

Dental spacing issue

You can see the problem Mark experienced with the spaces in his teeth in this image taken before he had his dental treatment.

Mark's widely-spaced teeth

During the initial consultation Dr Murphy explained that short term orthodontics and teeth whitening should be considered in the first instance. However for various reasons of his own, Mark did not want to go down this route.

To make matters slightly more complicated, he also did not want the gold teeth in his mouth removed or adjusted!

Tackling spacing between teeth with veneers

After many conversations on the phone as well as multiple emails between London and Glasgow, Mark decided that he wanted to consider minimal or ‘no prep’ porcelain veneers as a solution to closing the spacing.

That is what we did once he came into the practice.

Mark’s treatment was finished within six days and you can see from this photograph the spacing was markedly reduced. Mark was pleased with the final result.

How much did this cost? Minimum prep porcelain veneers cost £350 at Appletree Dental Care. You can see our cosmetic dentistry prices here.

Importantly, the porcelain veneers we fit are custom made and shaded by our local dental laboratory here in Glasgow who work closely with us to make sure each patient is happy with the final result.

Compare this with Lumineers (no prep), a well-known veneer brand made exclusively at the DenMat Lab. They cost £800 each and take up to six weeks due to the involvement of porcelain technicians in the US.

Prevent future unsightly spacing

Before he left Mark was given a free custom made retainer to protect his new porcelain teeth and prevent development of further spacing.

He may work in London but Mark saved £4500 on prices quoted for the same private dental work in Harley Street in London.
