Dear Tina / Stuart,
The first thing my dentist Stuart asked me was 'how did I feel about my smile?' that question alone was almost enough to reduce me to tears!
I had been unhappy with the way my teeth looked for around ten years, to find someone who actually wanted to do something about it rather than try and disguise the problem was a real change.
The option which suited me best was to have a bridge. The whole process took around five months.
The resulting boost to my self confidence has been massive, from someone who never smiled with their teeth for photos to someone who actually likes having their photo taken!
To be stopped in the street and told you have a lovely smile is a fantastic feeling even if it is by someone old enough to be my grandfather.
I have had numerous compliments about my smile and on the odd occasion that I do tell someone that is a bridge the look of shock on their face is enough to tell me that it looks perfectly natural and that I made the right decision.
