Janice had problems with an old NHS crown which had recurring infection. This can be located on the right of the picture below, with a single tooth space just behind it.
She had been told by her NHS dentist that the crown and root should be removed. Janice was set against the idea of wearing a removable denture and requested dental implants to replace two teeth.
After her free consultation and X-ray analysis it was decided to explore the possibility of a single implant with two teeth on a cantilever porcelain bridge.
The astute viewer will note that we placed a porcelain crown on the left of the picture where there had previously been an old NHS metal filling.
The frontal view shows how we provided a more cosmetic result, filling the space and electing a more natural shade of porcelain to match that of existing porcelain at the front of the upper jaw.
The total cost of treatment was £3234 including X-rays , extraction , two teeth on a single implant, additional porcelain ceramic crown.
Janice said “It’s like having three new teeth – no gaps , dark lines or infection. I’m much happier about smiling these days .”
Janice has been returned to her regular dentist for routine NHS care. She will come back annually to have her implant checked.
