Smile makeover for patient in early 60s: self conscious about her teeth since childhood accident.

24th May 2013

We received this lovely testimonial from a lady in early 60s who’d been self conscious about her teeth since a childhood accident. She wanted a smile makeover at our Glasgow dental clinic.

This patient wished to improve her smile together with her confidence in her smile.

There was a combination of a missing central incisor tooth, worn, ageing restorations and a shift in the centreline.

Many and varied treatment options were discussed together with the feasibility of each. The patient wished lower arch orthodontics (treatment ongoing) together with new ceramic work on the upper arch to camouflage the alignment issues of the smile. This also enhanced her smile’s aesthetic appearance, improving the shade and harmony.

Here’s her note to us…and the photo montage shows the before/after…

“To Dr Friel and his team…After many years of feeling self conscious about my teeth following a childhood accident, I finally decided to seek advice from Dr Friel. After a consultation a treatment plan was drawn up to enable me to decide which treatment I would prefer.


Thanks to the expertise and skill of Dr Friel fitting Zirconia Crowns I now have the confidence to smile when speaking to people.

I would highly recommend a visit to Dr Friel’s Dentistry Practice to anyone who like me put off having work done to their teeth through the fear of the dentist.

Phil and his excellent team immediately put you at ease, by being so friendly and professional the minute you walk through the door. They have the patience to explain the details of the treatment, and also help to alleviate any fears during the procedures.

I can’t thank Phil and his team enough for all their care and assistance, if only I’d known the final outcome I would have done it years ago.”

We’re always grateful when a patient takes the time to write to us about the experiences in the clinic. If you have any questions arising from this blog post of would like to find out more about smile makeovers please contact us on 0141 339 7579.
