Cosmetic Dental Appearance and Bringing a Claim…
Cosmetic dentistry is often marketed as a “solution” to peoples smile problems. However, most dentists would say that having a solid foundation of healthy teeth and regular routine of good oral hygiene is far more important. In fact the need to have a solid foundation of healthy teeth and gums is often overlooked by some clinics. This can lead to all manner of problems. Nobody can afford to waste money on expensive dental procedures that are not going to last. The pursuit of these perfect smile treatments then, can turn into a Cosmetic dental negligence claim which can be a traumatic experience.
Pursuing a dental cosmetic negligence claim can result in compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment as well as treatment costs to put things right and expenses and refunds for what has gone wrong, enabling you to pay for any further treatment required due to the negligence you have suffered, and helping to ease the pain and suffering of your ordeal.

What Goes Wrong in Cosmetic Dentistry?
The biggest single contributor to Cosmetic Dental Compensation is the presence of a psychiatric or psychological injury. These are separate injuries within dental cosmetic negligence and frequently take the form in the patient of a change in personality or in behavior. These behavioral changes often accompany a bout of depression. For Dental Claims on a No Win No Fee basis they often mean two very important things. Firstly they significantly raise the value of the claim and secondly they inevitably mean that further medical evidence is required in the form of a psychiatric or psychological report.
This often means a claim is slowed down but rightly so as the value and the importance of the claim considerably increases.
For the patient the damage is more important that just compensation, it often is ruinious to thier lives, changing thier social orientation and making them a recluse in thier own homes.
