Nazia Glover – Tooth whitening followed by replacement of conventional crown.
Josh Sharpling – LM was referred to us as she wished to have a fixed tooth replacement for her UL2. On presentation she was wearing an ill-fitting acrylic partial denture. I placed an implant in the UL2 region, alongside simultaneous bone grafting, and worked with Byrnes dental laboratory to give the patient a natural final result which she and I were both really pleased with.
Hany Almouslem – Fixed braces used to correct crowding, misalignment and occlusion.
Naveed Soomro – Patients treatment plan consisted of at home tooth whitening, composite bonding of the front 6 teeth and implants UR5 UL5 to replace the previously worn denture.
Nazia Glover – Patients implants previously failed and with such a large hard and soft tissue defect, a 6 unit conventional bridge was the best option.
Josh Sharpling/Graham Browning – new upper composite bridge, implant and a two tooth bridge to replace lower incisors.
Josh Sharpling – composite bonding LR2/3 and veneers upper anterior with tooth whitening.
Nazia Glover – composite bonding to improve aesthetics and even out edges.
Naveed Soomro – composite bonding to build up heavily worn down teeth.
Josh Sharpling – new upper and lower implant bridges, pt wanted a bigger and brighter smile as well as a freshen up of colour and shape.
Fernando Eriksson – Patients main concern was the appearance of UR1. A piece of gum was taken from the roof of the mouth in order to enhance the thickness of the gum to make them more robust and stable, restoring the gum as close to its original position as possible.
Josh Sharpling – JM was referred in due to her failing anterior veneers. The veneers had fractured, and she reported not being entirely satisfied with the aesthetics, even before the fracture. Cases like this are always challenging, as patients’ aesthetic expectations are often very high when re-doing anterior aesthetic work. Meticulous planning went into the case, and we were able to produce an excellent final result, which blended in naturally to the final dentition.
Zahab Shaikh – This patient came to us wanting all his top and bottom teeth removed and replaced with implants. At South Coast Dental Specialists we always try to save teeth where possible, and thankfully a course of treatment with our gum disease dentist Zahab meant that we could maintain most of this patient’s top teeth. All of the lower teeth and the top front teeth did unfortunately need to be removed. We replaced these with dental implants, and the lower teeth were treated by removing the teeth, placing implants, and attaching new teeth to the implants in a single day.
Josh Sharpling – Implants aren’t teeth! Unlike teeth, implants do not move position as we grow older. This patients teeth were level when they were done over 10 years ago, however the tooth (UL1) has continued to move, and the implant (UR1) has stayed in the same place. This gives the illusion of the tooth in the implant getting shorter.
It is always difficult to make a new crown match an old crown; but Josh worked with Byrnes to get it right, sometimes it takes a few tries. The first try in or the new crown was still a little short, so Josh added some composite to show the lab how long the crown needed to be. Byrnes then copied this length exactly, and the patient was over the moon with her new implant crown. We even managed to keep the old abutment in place!
