A patient who visited the London Centre for Implant & Aesthetic Dentistry believes that her cosmetic dental treatment has made her look ten years younger.
Sixty-one-year-old Janet Caton visited Dr Koray Feran and underwent major reconstructive work that took three years to complete.
However, the design worker does not regret her decision, claiming that her new teeth have given her a new inner confidence.
She claimed: "Friends who haven't seen me in a while say how great I look and I think it is all down to the teeth - they have helped me change my life."
Dr Feran replaced Ms Caton's whole upper arch and lower back teeth with dental implant-supported bridges, and realigned her lower front teeth with lingual braces.
He revealed: "When Janet came to us her teeth were in a state of decline and she had an unsightly removable denture replacing three of her front teeth.
"I explained to Janet that she had a real option to improve her smile, boost her confidence and escape the piecemeal dentistry she'd had all her life."
What's better? Private or NHS healthcare?
