Porcelain Crowns

Without reservation, recommending Winning Smiles

I had several upper crowns and a bridge fitted 15-20 years. ago. I thought my teeth could look better.

From my first visit, this was the practice for me and I didn’t even consider looking elsewhere. Everyone was so friendly and efficient.

I first saw Alex and subsequently Andrew. Due to medication, implants are not a recommended option for me.

Andrew has replaced my crowns, added a couple more and replaced the bridge. He suggested the new be a tiny fraction longer than the old ones, saying to see more teeth when I spoke and smiled would be a nicer look – of course, he is right!

Throughout the whole process, Andrew was patient, informative and explained everything.

He happily answered all my questions even the ones I knew were quite trivial. I was expecting some pain but there was absolutely none even at my 5 hour+ appointment! Anyway, I already trusted Andrew to know he would not have let me suffer any pain.

I am so happy with what Andrew has achieved. I feel he does everything possible to give the best smile possible by telling his patients what he can do but equally important what he can’t do.
Alex did some cosmetic fillings and arranged some bleaching which has made a big difference to my (own) bottom teeth. This and everything Andrew has done leaves me, without reservation, recommending Winning Smiles. Thank you!

Ashleigh – Cosmetic Smile Makeover

Although I’ve read lots of reviews for this and that I’ve never actually left one, this will be my first.

I had all my fillings changed for white, a crown an inman aligner and bleaching. The results were better than I was expecting I’m very pleased with the result, and I would like to just say thank you to all at winning smiles. Not only for this but also for how accommodating they were arranging appointments due to the fact I live 140+ miles away. Thank you

Dental Review Notes

Thanks Ash for your kind words. Ash travelled all the way from Coventry to sort out his dental problems.

John – A Perfectionists Smile

Before finding Winning Smiles, I already had what many people considered to be a good dentist in Greenwich, however I wasn’t happy with the level of service they gave me and that put me off going at all. Upon developing a problem with a front crown, I decided to seek out a better option and after reading positive reviews I booked in for a consultation.

I was surprised by Andrew’s level of knowledge and his keenness to understand what I was looking for, he gave me time to ask more in-depth questions until I was satisfied that I was in the right place. I’d also like to mention that the same courteous and knowledgeable traits are shared by the whole team.

I’m a perfectionist at heart and because I am sensitive about my front teeth, I went to the extent of creating digitally altered pictures of what I wanted them to look like, a first for Andrew I think and he was more than happy to work towards my idea. He guided me on what would look natural and we agreed upon what would be done.

The results are fantastic, and because of proper procedures being used and the level of attention that I was afforded, I firmly believe that I wouldn’t have gotten a better result anywhere else.

Many thanks to everyone,

Christine – Creating a Natural Smile

I found the Winning Smiles website whilst looking for a dentist to replace an unsatisfactory NHS crown. The honest and straightforward approach of this site encouraged me to call and make an appointment.

Andrew welcomed me with a warm, friendly smile that made me feel at ease as I explained the reason for my visit. He completely understood why I was unhappy and said the crown could certainly be replaced with one more acceptable in looks and practicality.

We then discussed how I felt about my teeth generally and I mentioned that I had always been unhappy with my two front teeth, which were rather prominent and dominated my narrow smile. After looking at them, Andrew suggested that by having crowns on eight of my upper front teeth, I could solve both my problems and increase the width of my smile at the same time.

There was no pressure to make a decision straight away and I left to think over my choices. I decided to have the eight crowns. Although it would be a major step, and involve a lot of work, I was already confident that Andrew would provide me with the best possible result. As my treatment proceeded smoothly and painlessly I can honestly say that I looked forward to each appointment.

My transformation was completed five weeks ago and the result has exceeded all my expectations. The new crowns feel very natural so that I forget about them until I look in a mirror; then I’m really happy because I now have the smile I always wanted.

Many thanks to everyone at Winning Smiles for all their hard work.

Rob – Rebuilding my Smile

After two weeks with my fab new smile, I feel inspired to share my experience.

From my first meeting and consultation with Andrew Fennell, I felt comfortrouble and at ease, a first for me I’m afraid, previous dentists must have studied at Dewhurst I think, nuff said.

I had a series of missing, loose and broken crowns, and my smile had disappeared and distorted over time. Andrew offered different options to rebuild the smile, we worked out the most cost effective way in my case would be a bridge, great, compared with dentures I was offered everywhere else this was fantastic and I was very happy to start treatment.

Winning Smiles attitude to pain management must be commended! That for me was a very big fear and what kept me away from a dentist for too long. The painless injection system used by Andrew was the most reassuring experience possible, from then on I was happy to go through hours of work and even have a laugh during treatment at times, amazing. Other patients reading this will know what I mean when I talk about the synergy between Andrew and his nurses during treatment, it’s almost like going to a gig with the level of intuition and communication on display, and has changed my mind about dentists forever (well some anyway).

So having also seen Andrew blow a mean blues harmonica, I can understand this better!

The skill and communication on display between Andrew, and the entire team are what makes Winning Smiles brilliant. The atmosphere, the statue, the smiles on the faces of other waiting clients, just make the whole experience really enjoyable.

My smile recommends Winning Smiles to everybody I meet. Thank you all and see you soon no doubt for hygienist and other delights. :)

Ruth – Don’t be scared of sedation!

DON’T BE SCARED OF SEDATION……..IT’S BRILLIANT….TRUST ME!!!

I came in for 4 hours sedation with your FANTASTIC sedationist Doctor Damian. It was recommended as I needed 10 upper crowns and surgery to even up my gum lines. This involved a very lengthy treatment, which thankfully I was not aware of. Amazingly I was told to eat and drink before treatment. The drug process to put me to sleep was not in the least bit traumatic. It only involved a tiny needle, with just one drop at a time of the drug. When I came round, I did not feel unwell in the least (just not quite with it). It was a totally stress free experience, and I recommend it to anyone undergoing lengthy/complex work.
Andrew is also doing a brilliant job, sorting out my general and cosmetic dentistry…..BEFORE AND AFTER his clever Dad Michael straightened them for me with Invisalign.
The girls are all great too, and I am SO lucky to have found the perfect team at Winning Smiles!
