When Calum, 20, from Hartlepool brought his sister to Queensway to have her braces taken off,he saw our practice literature and decided to book in for a free cosmetic consultation with Dr Uzma Olbrich.
Although he was generally happy with his teeth he didn't like the small gaps in between them. He had been conscious of them for a few years and had previously paid £250 for a consultation at another practice, although he hadn't gone ahead with any treatment.
Dr Olbrich tailored a solution that would fit within his budget and not involve any invasive treatment on his natural teeth. She suggested composite bonding, a mouldable material with a paste-like consistency that can fill any gaps and change the shape and size of the teeth.
Calum said: "I explained to Uzma that I still wanted a natural smile and she listened to what I wanted and offered me the best possible option that suited my budget. I did not feel pressured nor that I was being overcharged. It was a really good experience; it took less than 3 hours and was completely pain free!"
When Calum went home after his appointment, his brother was so impressed with the difference in his teeth that he also booked in for treatment with Dr Olbrich and had the same procedure carried out.
As Calum is a professional boxer he will also be visiting Queensway to have a dental gum shield made to protect his teeth when in the boxing ring!
