Patient Testimonial: I attended Dr. Máirtín Brennan some year ago to do bridge work on my teeth and was very pleased with his work and my Dentist would always admire the wonderful job he did on my routine visits to him. Last year, I asked my Dentist if I could do anything to improve the colour and shape of my teeth as I had become very conscious of my smile, so he again referred me to Dr Brennan. I had no hesitation in going back to Máirtín and again the work he has done on my teeth is incredible. He has definitely given me my smile back and I have to say his standard of work is excellent. Máirtín and his staff are so professional but they treat you in a very kind and gentle manner so my many visits were always very pleasant. Máirtín himself is a true gentleman and very genuine person so I would highly recommend him and his work. Thank you Máirtín and all your lovely staff on a job very well done.

Case 5

Phase 1

Description of Treatment: This is the first phase in replacing a bridge for this patient. The patient had an existing 4 tooth bridge supported by two teeth. The root of one of the supporting teeth cracked. This necessitated the removal of the bridge and the two roots that supported this bridge. Two dental implants were then placed in those areas where the roots were extracted.

Patient Testimonial: I would just like to extend my gratitude for the work done on both myself and my daughters teeth carried out by Máirtán Brennan at his lovely surgery. It was a very friendly atmosphere and the staff put me at ease. My biggest regret is that I didnt get it done sooner and I would like to again extend my thanks to Dr. Brennan and his staff for such a wonderful job.

Case 7

Description of Treatment: This adult patient had completed orthodontic treatment to re-align the position of his teeth. There was a resulting gap to be filled. There was insufficient space to use an implant. Hence a Bridge was chosen as the most appropriate option to close the gap. This is an all-porcelain bridge using Zirconium. Both teeth on either side of the gap were used to support the new bridge. Inlay crowns - which involve removing less tooth structure than a conventional crown were used on these supporting teeth - and the bridge was then cemented into place.
