Michael came to see us after he’d sustained an injury to his front teeth. His upper right central incisor had been knocked back and this had fractured the root and severely damaged the bone around the root as well.
Unfortunately the tooth could not be saved and Michael chose to have a dental implant to replace it.
A bone graft was necessary to replace some of the missing bone around the damaged tooth. This was placed at the same time as the dental implant.
It was necessary to use a temporary crown the gum tissues around the implant area healed.
Michael chose to whiten his teeth during this time.
Finally a new permanent crown was placed on the implant along with a porcelain veneer on the other front tooth which had also been damaged. Some composite resin bonding was also carried out on the upper lateral incisors to improve the appearance of these in the smile.
The treatment took a number of months overall but we were all very pleased with the final result, especially Michael.
This young lady from Sidcup came in concerned about the tea and coffee stains on her front teeth.
We used a Cavitron ultrasonic scaler and a prophy polish to remove the stains.
Below are the before and after pictures.
At Dental Elegance we offer a full comprehensive hygiene service treating all forms of gum disease – bleeding gums to advanced periodontal disease as well as simple stain removal and tooth whitening. We also offer a maintenance service after restorative dentistry and implants.
This lady came to our practice with concerns about the appearance of her upper front teeth.. She actually had gaps between the four front teeth but the gaps had been closed in the past by adding a filling material over the surface and in between the teeth. She had been happy with this for a while but now the material had started to stain and chip away. She had also worn the the teeth down by grinding her teeth.
We started by making models of her teeth and then a 3D simulation of the planned new tooth shapes, called a diagnostic wax-up, was made and tried in over her existing teeth so that she could see what we could do. The great thing about this technique is that there are no surprises. The end result is exactly the same as the preview that the patient sees at this stage. She really liked the result.
The next step was to whiten her teeth with a home tooth whitening kit.
Finally the old filling material was removed, the teeth were minimally prepared and four porcelain veneers were made to replace the existing material and close the gaps between the teeth.
She had waited a long time to get the result she wanted and she was very happy with the final result.

This patient from Bromley was unhappy with the appearance of her upper front teeth.
She had considered veneers and fixed braces but was not keen on either.
We used a sectional expansion appliance to move out her crowded upper teeth on the left side before using an Inman aligner to align the remainder of her front teeth. We then just re-conyoured the edges of her front teeth a little.
Shown below- photos of Inman Aligner before and after case.

This patient from Bexley Kent came to Dental Elegance requesting a definitive, permanent solution for her missing teeth for which she had a loose, uncomfortable plastic denture. Dentist Dan Patel restored her teeth with 2 separate beautiful eMax bridges to give her comfort, function and confidence eating, talking and smiling.
This patient from London came to see us for a routine examination. The images below show photos of the worn teeth and photos of composite resin bonding carried out.
She was aware of grinding her teeth and of her worn teeth and was conscious of the way her teeth were changing shape and wearing down as a result of this.
She wanted to improve the appearance of her smile and protect the worn teeth. We suggested the use of composite resin bonding
Firstly she used a home tooth whitening kit to lighten her teeth to a colour she was happy with.
We then restored the lower teeth with directly placed composite resin. This required no adjustment of the natural tooth, only building back the lost tooth structure.
At a separate visit we restored the edges and front surfaces of the upper six front teeth.
The patient was really pleased with her new smile and was happy that her teeth were protected from the ongoing wear. She was very happy that we had been able to do this with no damage to her natural tooth structure.
