Metal to Composite Restoration

Composite-Restoration-Broken-Tooth-1-480x301

Composite Restoration for a Broken Tooth

This patient presented with a broken front tooth after taking a fall. We restored the tooth—in one visit—using a complex layering composite material. In order to avoid the unnecessary destruction of a healthy tooth, we decided against the easier, alternative treatment option, namely the use of a laboratory-constructed veneer or crown.

Composite Restoration for Worn Front Teeth

This patient presented with heavily worn front teeth. To lengthen the teeth and enhance the smile, we offered the least invasive treatment available. Instead of using laboratory-constructed veneers or crowns, we re-sculpted the teeth in one sitting, using a complex layering composite material.

Composite Restorations for Recontouring

This patient was unhappy with his smile. He did not like the way the edges of his upper and lower front teeth were ‘going up and down’. To remedy the problem, we first completed a course of teeth whitening, then restored the chipped and worn edges of his front teeth and, finally, provided re-contouring to create an even and balanced smile line.

Replacing an Old Denture with Bridges

This ninety-year-old patient suffered with a loose top denture and wanted to discuss a more permanent option. Given the patient’s age and health, we counselled against dental implants. Instead, we removed her two remaining upper roots and replaced the missing teeth with two laboratory-constructed bridges.

Veneers for Misshapen Teeth

This patient was unhappy with the way her front teeth splayed out and also with her discoloured, old white fillings. Moreover, her teeth showed very little, giving her a ‘reverse’ smile line. To help improve her smile, we opted for a whitening treatment followed by the placement of laboratory-constructed porcelain veneers on her front teeth.

Crowns for Acid Erosion

This patient presented with heavily worn and chipped front teeth. His love of beer had caused severe acid erosion damage and sensitivity. He also suffered from gastric reflux which had damaged the backs of his teeth. To improve his smile and, more importantly, to help protect them from further damage, we restored his front teeth with laboratory-constructed porcelain crowns.

Crowns and Veneers for Misshapen Teeth and Old Restorations 1

This patient was not happy with her smile having had extensive dental treatment over the years. She also felt that the shape of her teeth looked too bulky and wide. To enhance her smile, we provided a ‘Smile Makeover’ involving teeth whitening, followed by restoration of the upper teeth using a combination of laboratory-constructed veneers and crowns.

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Shan Lam has been our dentist for more than thirteen years, and she has seen all of my three boys on a regular basis. Without her very early interventions and support, we would be looking at mouths full of fillings. She is professional, experienced and incredibly thorough. I cannot rate Dr. Lam’s professionalism and dental care enough.

Ms. Julie W

I have been a real ‘dentist phobe’ since I attended the school dentist over 50 years ago. I have found in Dr. Shan Lam a dentist who I can fully trust, who explains every procedure in detail and who gives me the confidence to have dental treatment. She has a real calming effect – I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Mrs. Linda H

Thank you to Dr. Shan Lam for the many years during which she has looked after my dental needs. She has always been so helpful and professional, and is an outstanding communicator—a trait not common among health care professionals. I can’t remember ever experiencing any pain or difficulties with any treatment she provided.

Mr. Stefan B

In the past, I had some awful experiences at the dentist, and I came to Dr. Shan Lam in 2008 to correct some visibly poor cosmetic dentistry work that I had received elsewhere. I was not disappointed: Not only is her treatment comfortable, but the results are also first class. We face the world with our smile, which is why not only my smile has improved but my mental health, too.

Mrs. Anne E

My husband and I have very much appreciated being treated by Dr. Shan Lam. We are both in our nineties and over the years have been treated by a large number of dental surgeons. Dr. Lam compares very well with the best of them.

Prof. Ivor S and Mrs. Audrey S

Thank you to Dr. Shan Lam for taking such good care of me and my teeth over the years. She has made going to the dentist a pleasure. I’m sure not many people can say that about a visit to a dentist, but I am certain all of her patients feel the same.

Mr. Clive B

Dr. Shan Lam has been the dentist for me and my family for over ten years. We have been very impressed with her efficiency, professionalism and attention to detail. She is very reassuring to the children, who actually look forward to their visits. We feel very lucky to have been looked after by Dr. Lam.

Ms. Yunfei G

I have been under the care of Dr. Shan Lam for over six years. She’s fantastic. She turned what can often be an intimidating experience into a warm, caring, safe and professional one. I always felt well looked after and I would absolutely recommend her to friends and family.

Mr. Peter W

Dr. Lam has made it a pleasure to visit the dentist for my family and I. She is always friendly and welcoming and easy to talk to. She explains what she is doing and why and gives good advice about dental care. She is a definite asset to any surgery.

Mrs. Lorna C

Thank you to Dr. Lam for her friendly, smiley treatment over the past years. I am so grateful to her for ensuring that my children’s first experience of going to the dentist has been so positive and fun. We will genuinely miss her.

Ms. Miranda G

Thank you so much to Dr. Lam for her skills and artistry – and also for her patience and good humour in the face of that worst-of-all world’s combination for a dentist – a patient with lousy teeth and a phobia of dentists! Dr. Lam has gone a long way to give me back my missing confidence in dentistry.
