I never thought a dental procedure could be such a life changing experience.
I have always been self conscious of my teeth and gums, so much so I covered my mouth with my hand when I spoke to someone or laughed.
I had quite small teeth but large gums my teeth protruded a little, so when Stuart commented that he could give me a more elegant smile, I was quite excited.
He explained what he could do in great detail. I decided I had nothing to lose so went forward with the procedure.
I started by having my gums lifted which I admit wasn't a nice feeling, no, it didn't hurt, it was more the thought of what was being done.
I looked a little worse for wear but after a couple of painkillers I was right as rain. I was amazed how quick my gums healed; Stuart was very thorough in his treatment and explained everything in great detail.
Step by step you could really see a difference and when I had my temporary front teeth in I got quite excited.
Stuart explained to me that if I was unsure I must say if I didn't like them as I needed to be totally happy before my teeth were finally fitted.
When my temporaries had been put in, I was a little upset as they looked really long, after a few adjustments they looked amazing.
I could not believe how great they looked, the fact my teeth didn't protrude out was really lovely.
For my final fitting I was quite nervous, I was worried that I might not like them, however, when Stuart handed me the mirror I actually cried. I thought I actually looked quite pretty and was shocked how much better I looked.
I just regret that I hadn't done it ten years ago.
Thank you Stuart and all of the team for your support and help.
P.s I can't stop looking in the mirror now !!
