Millions of people across the globe suffer from dental problems. Whilst some choose to deal with them by going to the dentist, others opt for more permanent solutions.
Cosmetic dentistry has existed for a long time. Although it has greatly changed over the years, its purpose remains the same; to alter the appearance of one’s teeth and make them more aesthetically pleasing. More people than ever before are choosing to take drastic measures in order to achieve a perfect smile. Although most of the time the desired effects are achieved, there are some exceptions.
Anyone undergoing any type of medical procedure knows there are risk involved. Although some are greater than others, depending on the severity of your procedure, things can always go wrong.
Dental Malpractice Claims have become a lot more common in recent years. Claims involving cosmetic dentistry can be quite tricky, as they involve a number of deciding factors that can affect the overall outcome, this is why its best to use a qualified injury solicitor with great experience of Dential negligence claims.
There are various factors that need to be considered when making a claim. The type of injury you have sustained, for example, will make a big difference in how much compensation you can expect to receive.
Cosmetic Dentistry – What can go wrong?
Contrary to popular belief, even the smallest of dental procedures can result in complications. Although care is taken to ensure every patient’s safety, it’s impossible to stop all errors from occurring. This is why there are numerous laws in place that protect anyone going through a dental procedure.
From pain and unnecessary orthodontics to veneers that fall off and poorly fitting crowns, there are various issues that can occur as a result of cosmetic dentistry negligence. If you are suffering because of a procedure gone wrong, you could be entitled to compensation. Since each individual case is different in nature, it’s impossible to predict how much your claim will be worth, although our dential negligence compensation calculator will provide some general guideline figures for the ‘general’ damages (pain & suffering) part of a complete compensation award.
What is considered as Cosmetic Dentistry treatments?
Many different treatments fall under cosmetic dentistry. Whilst some are rather straightforward and virtually risk-free, others are more complex and dangerous. Regardless of the procedure, there is always scope for injury or unwarranted work when you are in the dentist chair.
Everything from dentures, crowns and bridges to veneers, teeth whitening and smile makeovers is considered to be cosmetic in nature.
How much compensation am I entitled to?
Typically, the amount of financial you are entitled to will depend on the severity of your injury or health problems that have resulted from the treatment received, what corrective measures may be needed, and any financial losses incurred due to your injuries.
