James Russell is the Embarrassing Bodies Dentist providing advice and treatment on Channel 4's BAFTA winning TV programme
Problem: Extreme tooth decay leading to broken, black teeth.
Solution: Porcelain veneers and crowns.
By her own admission, Tracy had taken "time out" from looking after herself. The result of poor oral hygiene and a diet high in sugars had left her teeth black with decay.
Luckily for Tracy, her worst fears were not realised, no teeth needed to be removed. I used a combination of 10 porcelain veneers and crowns to restore her smile into something she could be proud, rather than ashamed of. The whole process only took 4 weeks, including initial hygiene treatment and a 3D preview to mock-up the final result.
