Smile of the Month – February

It’s a brand new month, and to kick February off we’ve got an absolutely fantastic Smile of the Month to share with you.

Our lovely patient Nerina first visited Dr Ronit Patel as an emergency new patient.

She had a wobbly bridge on her upper front teeth, which was visible when she smiled, which made her feel self-conscious and anxious.

She wanted to know what her options were, so after a full assessment, including digital screening, X-rays and photographs, we put together a bespoke long-term plan.

First up: stabilisatiron to make Nerina’s mouth healthy.

We removed the old wobbly bridge, and the failing roots that were holding it, and replaced it with a temporary bridge, then implemented dental implants, with the help of Dr Shahrokh Navaee, keeping the temporary bridge in place while the implants healed.

Once the implants were healthy and in situ, we fitted Nerina a new implant retained bridge, and gave her some new cosmetic porcelain crowns to improve the appearance of the teeth next to the bridge.

In addition, we carried out work to repair and improve the structural stability of some of her back teeth, using composite resin white fillings and porcelain onlay restorations.

Throughout the treatment, we’ve kept Nerina in the loop at every stage, and given her options about the best way to move forward, and she’s now in a much better place, having also added in a regular hygienist appointment to help maintain good gum health.

We also have a plan in place to now replace some other missing teeth, so watch this space!

Nerina’s ecstatic about the result – not only is she a lot more confident in her smile, but she’s also got the peace of mind that she has a stable long-term fixed solution to her smile.

If you’re inspired by Nerina’s story, and you’d like to see what’s possible for your smile, just reply to this email, or give us a call on 020 8888 4401.


P.S. We asked Nerina what she thought of her treatment – you can catch her response on video by clicking below.
