When this patient first came to see Lucy she spoke with her hand covering her mouth. She was embarrassed of how her teeth looked. Years of grinding her teeth had left them flat and worn. Lucy promised she could smile again and after whitening her teeth, Lucy built them back up with a tooth coloured material. She was delighted and no longer covers her mouth when she speaks!

Black Triangle Treatment
'Black Triangles' are usually as a result of gum recession. As the gum recedes (often linked to gum disease), it creeps down, away from the tooth, leaving the tooth in the same position but without the gum support. The recession of the gum leaves a space between the teeth, which is a direct window into the mouth. Just like our houses at night, if there are no lights on then our windows appear black. Unfortunately, our gums don’t grow back! In the case pictured we were able to fill in these ‘windows’ with a white filling material. Just expanding the width of the tooth to replace the loss of gum. It’s a simple procedure. No drilling or injections are involved and it has a big impact on appearance and confidence.
Botox & Dermal Fillers
The photos above show how effective facial aesthetics can be. This patient started to notice fine wrinkles appearing on her forehead and between her eyebrows. By using a muscle relaxant we were able to smooth those muscles and if she keeps returning for this treatment, this will prevent those wrinkles getting any deeper.
The photos above are of a patient who was bothered by the fine lines around her top lip and the fact that overall her lips had lost volume. Lucy used filler to plump the outlines of her lip, giving her a more youthful appearance, which she was thrilled with. The 'number 11' frown lines (between the eyebrows) and crows feet can be aging. With just a small amount of muscle relaxant we can smooth out those lines and restore a more youthful appearance. This is what Lucy did here and the patient was thrilled.
