Research has shown that people remember a person’s smile more than what they said. Whether this is true or not, it is no surprise that cosmetic dentistry is on the rise, with more people opting for treatment to improve the appearance of their smile each year.
As the treatment is aesthetic rather than functional, it is even more devastating when it goes wrong. It is already something that the patient is conscious of, and for the treatment to not work, or in some cases cause damage, it can affect their self-esteem.
There are many types of cosmetic procedures, all of which can unfortunately fail. We have successfully pursued legal claims for patients who had the following treatment:
Crowns should not be placed on healthy teeth for cosmetic purposes. When this happens, there is usually a claim that can be made for incorrect crown placement. Other crown claims relate to the poor fit of a crown which can cause pain or food trapping.
Common claims relating to negligent bridgework include bridges that fall out prematurely and poorly fitted bridges.
Negligent Orthodontic treatment (braces)
Claims for negligent orthodontic treatment are varied. Common claims are for leaving braces on too long causing damage to teeth, providing the incorrect type of brace or incorrectly fitting braces. If you were promised an outcome which was not achieved, then this can also often be claimed for.
Veneers are purely to improve the appearance of teeth and most claims are for oversized veneers or poorly fitted veneers. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look after veneers are placed, or are concerned that you did not need veneers in the first place, then you may have a claim.
