Since a young age Amanda suffered problems in her jaw and teeth and was under the care of a maxillofacial surgeon to help with her dental problems. She had two main concerns when coming to Queensway. The first was the constant discomfort she experienced while eating and being unable to chew food. The second was cosmetic. The problems with her jaw meant that her smile was lopsided and she was unhappy with the shape of her teeth. Previously she had one dental implant placed to fill a gap and having seen the results she wanted a full smile makeover.
Amanda had Queensway recommended to her by her own family dentist in Whitby. During her initial consultation she had a discussion with Dr Averley about the options available to her and was told to take her time and think about it.
Amanda said she felt under no pressure and was immediately impressed with the professionalism of the whole team who were very friendly and considerate.
The reconstructive dentistry she chose to have involved very complex surgery, including bone grafts and gum contouring, which was all carried out at Queensway with conscious sedation.
Amanda had 7 dental implants placed in the upper arch to support a fixed bridge. To allow the implants to settle she wore a temporary denture for 6 months. During that time she said that not one person knew it was a denture and friends and family had actually complimented her on her new veneers!
To complete her smile makeover Amanda also had crowns placed on her bottom teeth.
Amanda said: “Cosmetic and function were of massive importance to me. Dr Averley and his team have taken away my pains and problems and have given me the look that I have always wanted and most importantly, given me the ability to chew. My central teeth line is now perfect and it is the best investment that I have ever made.”
