Café owner wins pay-out for botched dental treatment

Thu

A Stockport café owner has been awarded £10,000 after his dental work failed; Nasser Homayoun-Fekri spent thousands of pounds getting a brand new ‘Hollywood smile’ but was disappointed by the work that was carried out at Manor Dental Practice in Sale. The treatment included a bridge to replace missing teeth and several veneers; however, Nasser found that he had to return to Dr Anhali Shahi no less than eight times to get the veneers replaced and more repair work done.

Mr Homayoun-Fekri said that he was first fitted with the bridge but had to get another one in under a month, then six of his teeth were prepared for veneers; he added that this was ‘when all the problems started.’ He was told that the veneers would last for twenty years, but they came loose within a couple of weeks and he started to suffer some discomfort. He said ‘I struggled to eat and was afraid to open my mouth to speak – I was living in pain. It has caused me so many problems and has been a very upsetting period. I felt I had been treated unprofessionally.’

After seeking a second opinion, Nasser was told that he should not have been fitted with veneers, so he decided to sue for damages. An out-of-court settlement was reached at £10,000, although Dr Shahi denied that the level of service provided was poor. Heather Williams, of the Dental Law Partnership who represented Nasser, said that he ‘was offered an extremely poor treatment plan that didn’t take into account his oral health. He faced spending thousands [of pounds] to correct the problems.’

Brits ‘spending more on cosmetic dentistry’

Fri

Brits have considerably increased the amount they spend on treatments over the last few years.

Brits are spending more on cosmetic dentistry treatments than they have done in the last three years, new data has revealed. london cosmetic dentistry

Figures compiled by Manor Dental Practice revealed the amount Brits spend on fillings has grown on average by £50,000 per year since 2007.

“It’s quite common that in times of financial difficulty, one of the first things to go is visits to the dentist,” Dr Anjali Shahi, founder of the Manor practice, commented.

Dr Shahi postulated that this increase in spending could be due to the fact so many people have postponed appointments, meaning they had dental oral health problems which required more expensive solutions.

Elsewhere, Dental Plans recently reported the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists has estimated US citizens spend $2.75 billion (£1.68 billion) on cosmetic dentistry treatments every year.

The organisation noted teeth whitening, dental veneers and dental implants are three of the most popular treatments at present.
