In recent years there has been a boom in cosmetic dentistry as more and more people strive for the perfect ‘Hollywood’ smile.
Previously expensive treatments have come down in price making procedures once only available to the rich and famous much more affordable for the masses.
Many dentists now offer smile makeovers with treatments including teeth whitening for yellow or stained teeth, veneers, invisible braces for teeth straightening, gum contouring for protruding gums or the ‘gummy smile’, and implants and crowns to restore chipped or replace broken teeth.
Anyone putting their trust in a dentist to improve their smile has the right to expect they will be safeguarded from harm and trauma during and after their treatment.
Most cosmetic dentistry carried out in the UK is performed in private clinics, where, unlike in the NHS, there is little regulation, and procedures often cost thousands of pounds.
While most patients are satisfied with their treatment, more and more are finding that their dental work disappoints. They are left counting not only the financial cost of poor results, but also the emotional and physical cost of painful injuries, prolonged suffering and trauma when their cosmetic dentistry goes wrong.
