Complex Case: Implants, Composite bonding & Tooth Whitening

After visiting Dr Will Carter to discuss concerns about missing teeth and the appearance of her smile, this patient decided to go ahead with a course of treatment which would restore her smile by improving both the appearance and the function of the teeth.

To begin treatment the patient had unhealthy teeth removed, before implants where placed in to her top jaw.  The implants were used to support temporary crowns and bridges, allowing healing time before the final restorations could be produced by Queensway Dental Lab. The patient then had further implants placed in to her lower jaw. A total of 10 dental implants were placed during treatment, allowing the patient to keep her remaining healthy teeth.

After 3 months the final bridges and crowns were placed, before the patient began a course of tooth whitening to improve the colour of her remaining teeth.  To complete her smile Dr Carter then used composite bonding to improve the shape of the front teeth.

Closing Gaps: Bonding

With concerns about her smile this patient visited Dr William Carter at Queensway Dental clinic. A missing front tooth had caused this her canine tooth to move towards the front of her mouth, making the tips of her teeth look uneven. She also had a gap between her front teeth which she didn’t like. After a consultation with Dr Carter the patient decided to go ahead with a suggested course of treatment involving composite direct veneers.


Dr Carter said ‘Composite direct veneers were placed on the front teeth to alter the size, shape and colour of the teeth. Using composite allowed me to improve the teeth without the need for drilling into healthy enamel or other tooth structures. As a ‘tooth friendly’ treatment composite bonding is also totally reversible if required.”

Dental Implant: Trauma

Sarah visited Queensway Dental Clinic to see Dr Paul Averley following a recommendation made by a family member.

“I had a cycling accident in August 2012 where I went over my handlebars and landed on my chin knocking out one of my front teeth and killing the other at the root with the impact. As the success of the procedure would permanently affect the way I look and it was quite a big, complicated and traumatic job, I wanted to go somewhere I trusted and Paul was highly recommended.”

Sarah’s accident led to the loss of one front tooth and severe damage to the other one. Following an initial consultation, Dr Paul Averley suggested a treatment plan for Sarah which involved root canal treatment to restore the damaged tooth. Root canal treatment would avoid the need for extraction, meaning a veneer could be placed on to the tooth to improve its appearance. An implant supported crown was then placed to close the space left by the missing tooth.

“My front teeth have always been quite long and had white stains on them so my new teeth are even better than before my accident! People often comment on how good a job had been done, they look so natural. The service I received from Queensway was consistently good throughout the whole process.  I would definitely recommend Queensway Dental Clinic to anyone.”

Composite Bonding

Concerned with the appearance of her smile Claire visited Queensway Dental Clinic after a recommendation from her sister.

“I came to Queensway Dental Clinic for an initial consultation with Dr Will Carter, and I was really happy with the treatment plan he provided for me. I paid for my treatment interest free over 12 months which was a really convenient option for me, and made the cost of treatment completely manageable.”

 

Dr Will Carter’s treatment plan for Claire involved direct bonding onto the front teeth to change both their colour and contour. This would also reduce the gaps between the teeth meaning Claire would not require veneers or braces to complete her smile.

 

“Having a new smile has made such a difference to me. The service I received at Queensway was fantastic, all of the staff were really friendly. I would definitely recommend Queensway to anyone with concerns about their smile!”

Crowns, Bridges & Composite Build Ups

Peter had initially been referred to Queensway by his family dentist, however with running his own business time constraints had meant Peter didn’t proceed with his appointment straight away.

After further thought Peter began researching to find a dentist who could provide a solution to the problems he had with his smile.

“My teeth were in a bad state, and I was beginning to have more problems when eating. I had realised that I was likely to need major dental work which encouraged me to look for a dentist able to carry out the treatment, which was why I came back to Queensway.”

Peter visited Dr Paul Averley for an initial consultation and was suggested a treatment plan which would involve both upper ceramic crowns and bridge work, composite build ups and a lower partial denture.

“I chose to go ahead with the recommended treatment as after meeting Dr Averley, I felt completely confident that both he and the Queensway team could deliver exactly what they said they could. Everything about my treatment was explained to me fully beforehand so I understood what was involved and what to expect throughout.”

Peter’s treatment took just over 4 months. With both his partial chrome denture, crown and bridge work manufactured on-site at Queensway Dental Laboratory.

“I am over the moon with my teeth and smile after completing treatment. It has been a total transformation. I was always cynical about the effect something like this could have on a person. I would see advertisements in which people would talk about the transformation they had experienced and would always take them with a pinch of salt, however I am now the person who says that! As a business man I meet and speak to people daily, and I now enjoy smiling and flashing my teeth at people.”

“The service I received at Queensway was excellent, Paul and his nurse Jade were very good. I have already recommended Queensway to friends and family.”

All on 4

After being referred to Queensway Dental Clinic by her dentist Carole saw a hygienist at the clinic before seeing Dr Will Carter. Carole’s treatment plan involved the removal of her top teeth, which were damaged and loose, and the placement of 4 implants in her upper jaw. These 4 implants would then support a permanent full upper arch bridge of 10 teeth meaning Carole would not have to wear a removable denture. As Carole had a limited amount of bone available the All on 4™ treatment was a great solution as she wouldn’t have been suitable for traditional implants.

“The staff at Queensway are excellent and definitely the most professional outfit I have come across, Will and the team were great. I’m very happy with the results of my treatment, I now visit Queensway Dental Clinic as a regular patient, and it’s the friendliest dentist I have come across.”

Veneers & Tooth Whitening

After hearing about Queensway Dental Clinic through work colleagues, David booked an initial consultation with Dr Uzma Olbrich.

David said “I’d always been self-conscious about my smile from being a teenager mainly due to the prominent gap in my two front teeth. I’d always wanted to get my smile corrected but had never got around to it. When the bridge on the top row of my teeth cracked I decided to get my whole smile improved instead of just having the bridge fixed.”

Dr Uzma Olbrich suggested a treatment plan for David which included a course of tooth whitening, veneers to the anterior teeth and also the replacement of the cracked bridge. This course of treatment would brighten the teeth and in particular even out the colour of the lower teeth. The placement of veneers to David’s anterior teeth would reduce the space between his two front teeth whilst also improving the shape and size of those on each side. Replacement of the bridge would benefit David both functionally and aesthetically.

“I visited Queensway Dental Clinic a few months before my wedding. I wanted to be able to smile with confidence on my wedding photos and after talking with Dr Uzma Olbrich I was assured that treatment could be completed prior to my wedding day.”

Happy with the proposed treatment plan David went ahead with his treatment. The manufacture of the veneers and bridge was completed on site at Queensway Dental Laboratory, ensuring both the quality of the lab items and the production times.

“My treatment was complete before my wedding day and I was able to enjoy the day even more than I’d expected due to the added confidence my new teeth gave me. I beamed with pride on my wedding photos, which was amazing because for 35 years prior to that I’d always been very nervous when asked to smile for a camera.”

David is now a regular patient at Queensway Dental Clinic, seeing Dr Uzma Olbrich for his routine dental appointments.

“The staff at Queensway were excellent and I would recommend then without hesitation. They changed my teeth, which changed my smile, which changed my life. I’ll always be grateful to them.”

Veneers following trauma

After falling from his bike and suffering trauma to his front teeth, Mark was referred by his family dentist to Queensway Dental Clinic for a consultation with Dr Will Carter. Dr Carter has an MSc in cosmetic restorative dentistry and has built a good reputation for quality ethical dentistry.
Marks fall had severely damaged his 4 front teeth, which for Mark’s smile meant ‘There wasn’t one!’ Mark had had temporary fillings placed after the original trauma to his teeth however he was unhappy with them as they discoloured regularly and looked unsightly.
After an initial consultation Dr Carter recommended a course of treatment which would involve placing 4 ceramic veneers on to Marks 4 front teeth, this would restore Marks smile and also mean he has no pain from his teeth whilst with his veneers he has less chance of them coming off compared to his old temporary fillings. Happy with the proposed treatment plan, Mark went ahead with his treatment.
Upon completion of treatment, which took two weeks, Mark said: “I am very happy with the treatment and service I received from Dr Carter and the team at Queensway Dental Clinic. Dr Carter has made a 100% improvement to my smile! I would definitely recommend Queensway Dental Clinic to anyone, even if their worries are minor, I don’t believe any concern would be too small!”

Using anxiety management to achieve the smile Ronnie has always wanted

Veronica attended Queensway Dental Clinic after many years of disliking the appearance of her teeth. The back of the front teeth and the edges were worn and she also disliked their colour. Like many patients she did not enjoy visiting the dentist, but after many years, plucked up the courage to have an appointment with Dr Will Carter. Several visits later Veronica had a clear understanding of the condition her teeth, what had caused the problem (her bite) and what could be done to fix the problem.

Dr Will Carter used a new technique using a Kois deprogrammer (a removable appliance) to help change the way in which her teeth bite together, leading to fabulous looking teeth that are less likely to wear down in the future.

By using intravenous conscious sedation to manage her anxiety, Veronica was able to undergo further dental treatment, which included new ceramic bridges and veneers which compliment her new smile. She is now less anxious of the dentist after having a pleasant experience and great results.
