My Cosmetic Dental Journey experience with Kish Patel at March Dental Surgery
Finding the right dentist is paramount when deciding to have cosmetic dental treatment and you should really take your time to do your research, look through their portfolio’s and if you can, speak to their previous patients to get an honest account of their experience.
This is why I find Instagram so helpful, I follow all of my local dentists so that I could see their work as they uploaded them to the grid. The makeovers look incredible but they just are not the aesthetic look that I want.
Scrolling through social media, I come across a dentist called Kish Patel who is based at March Dental surgery which is a 70 mile round trip from where I live. It was a year before I reached out to him to enquire about my own journey as I needed to be certain that he would be the right man for the job.
I sent him a message on Instagram with photos of my teeth asking if he would be able to make my teeth look as good as his other patients. His work is insane! Kish was completely honest with me and said from looking at photos and the Xray’s that I had a complex case and gave me a rough idea of what treatment I would need and the costs.
Feeling overwhelmed from hearing this I lost all hope again of ever achieving my dream smile and got on with my life for a short while. In that time, I had got myself a new job and Kish’s work kept popping up all over my Instagram pushing me into finally booking a consultation after a year+ of making my first contact with him.
My cosmetic dental consultation could not come quick enough. I was eager to see how much this would cost me or if it was even achievable, as I could appreciate it was hard for Kish to really say without seeing my teeth in person. When I first met Kish It was like I was meeting a celebrity, I had followed him for such a long time and idolised his work. Now here I was, sitting in his dentist chair waiting to find out if I too would be part of his exceptional portfolio of cosmetic dental work.
Fortunately for me, my teeth were already straight because of previously having braces and double jaw surgery which would save ALOT of time and money.
My Cosmetic dental treatment plan consisted of:
- Teeth whitening
- Gum lift
- 4 new crowns
- Re-root canal
- 7 Composite veneers
One of my biggest insecurities was my lateral incisor which was considerably smaller than the other side and made my smile look wonky. At the consultation, Kish temporarily built up my front teeth and my lateral incisor to show me of what can be achieved with composite. I could not believe the difference.
What I love about March Dental surgery and Kish is that I had my treatment plan and prices emailed to me the same day. They are transparent in the costs and you are not hit with any surprise charges during treatment.
We started with teeth whitening and I decided to go for the in office package which is called Enlighten Smile because it guarantees the shade B1 to make sure I get to the shade I want to go. It is also known to be the best whitening set with minimum sensitivity.
Next was my gum lift- My right lateral incisor is a crown that is over twenty years old and it was very small in comparison to the left one, I had the gum above it lasered to the same height as the other side in preparation for my new crown which would come later. The treatment was over with very quickly.
After I had healed from the gum lift which was pain free and took two weeks, I was booked in for my composite veneers. This appointment was long and exhilarating and more importantly, life changing. Not long after that I had come back to have my brand new crowns replaced and then my moulds taken for my whitening trays and retainers to keep my teeth in place.
I sat down to work out how many appointments I had attended, miles I had driven, how any hours sat in that dentist chair and this in the conclusion.
- Over 11 private dentist appointments
- Over 700 miles driven
- Over 8 Hours in the dentist chair between Kish and the Endodontist
Every hour, mile and appointment was worth it. My results speak for themselves and Kish is the best at what he does. This was the last leg of my teeth journey and it was extremely important to me that I took my time and picked the right dentist for the job who would give me the Colgate smile I had so desperately dreamed of and Kish excelled.
I can honestly say that I have been treat so well by Kish and his personal assistant Natalie who was my first point of call, she was always there to answer my questions and trust me, I had a lots of questions. Every appointment I needed for my entire treatment was booked in advance with no hiccups.
If you are looking for or are considering an exceptional Cosmetic dentist to give you the smile you have only every dreamt about then Kish is the professional for you. He takes great pride in his work and most importantly, listens to what you want. It really shines through in his patients and myself, he has changed my life and given me so much confidence.
