I had been unhappy and embarrassed about my teeth for many years. After having three teeth removed and fixed braces for three years as a teenager, I was extremely disappointed that my teeth had reverted back to their former positions and I was feeling reluctant to go through similar treatment again as a young adult.
I was unsure what treatment would be required and how much it would cost for me to have the smile I wanted. Before I made my decision I enquired about a consultation from a number of dentists, including my family dentist and was put-off by the price of a consultation (£50-£60) and the duration quoted for the treatment (up to 3 years). I then discovered Dental Elegance on the internet, browsed the website which led to me making the call.
With a free consultation, I had nothing to lose in booking an appointment and seeing what Dental Elegance could offer. Shortly after my consultation, I made the decision to go ahead with the 12 month treatment plan that Chris had offered which included a filling, removal of a lower front tooth, fixed braces and replacement of a crown on an upper front tooth.
I trusted that Chris had fully understood my need and made the effort to build a treatment plan that suited me as an individual and would give the best possible result. It was clear to me from Chris’ professionalism and caring manner that I was in the best place to get the result that I wanted. Chris took photographs at most of my appointments to show and explain clearly what was involved in each appointment, in advance for me to agree and prepare for what was next.
Chris stuck to the plan, my treatment finished on time and the result exceeded my expectations. Since my treatment, my confidence has grown significantly and I’m no longer embarrassed about my teeth. Prior to my treatment, I graduated from university and looking back at my graduation photographs it’s noticeable that I was reluctant to smile. For this reason, I wish I had decided to have the treatment earlier.
In my current employment I’m known as a ‘smiley face’ person. I have recently been involved in filming some sales and marketing videos which I wouldn’t of had the confidence to do before I had the treatment. I am convinced that my ‘smiley face’ approach has led to my successful reputation and recent progression to a new career opportunity.
Following the completion of my treatment, family and friends asked where I had been treated as they were astounded at the difference it had made to my life. Since then my Sister has begun a treatment plan, a friend has been for her first consultation and another friend completed her treatment plan in time for her wedding. My Sister is particularly nervous at the dentist but after seeing the results from my treatment and hearing about the quality of care I had experienced, she went ahead with the treatment.
The results speak for themselves as to whether it was a good investment of time and money:
Both myself and my wife came to Chris for teeth straightening after we missed out on having this done in our teens. We initially met with a couple of other local orthodontists and Chris stood out as being experienced and enthusiastic to help. I'm now very happy with the outcome and my wife (who's braces are due to be removed soon) is very happy with progress too. I also found the Fieldhouse reception team to be helpful and accommodating . Highly recommended. Thanks Chris.
I am absolutely delighted with the results. I just wish I had done it earlier in life! Thank you so much help and attention to detail throughout the whole process.
A few years ago, I had a lot of problems with my teeth. I was recommended Field House Dental Practice by a friend because they paid such good attention to her teeth, which had been in the same bad shape as mine were then. Moving to the practice was the best thing I ever did. Now my teeth are in really good condition and are cared for regularly. Recently I had a tooth fall out due to old problems (these things happen) and what excellent job they did on replacing it! The implant is fantastic and you wouldn't know it wasn't my own. Also, having spent years as a child having more fillings than I cared for, I used to be scared of going to the dentist, but the dentists - Chris and Janet Ibbot - both clearly explain what...
During a routine check-up, Chris informed me that two adjacent back teeth were showing signs of the old mercury amalgam fillings leaking into the teeth. He explained the consequences of this if left untreated, and recommended ceramic onlays as the most suitable way of saving the teeth from further deterioration and generally giving them a new lease of life. He also clearly explained the procedure including any possible snags as well as the cost, all of which I went away to consider for a few days before deciding to go ahead and booking the two quite lengthy appointments. The first to drill out the old fillings, generally prepare for the onlays and fit temporary fillings, and the second about a fortnight later to fit the onlays that had been made in a dental laboratory. I have been very satisfied with the...
