Watch Alison's transformation
Alison from Season 2 Episode 7 of 10 Years Younger in 10 Days, overcoming her fear of dentists.
Before her dental treatment, Alisons teeth were her big insecurity. Fear of going to the dentist when she was younger has had a huge impact on her oral health. Like many who suffer with dental anxiety, Alison avoided the dentist until the pain was worse than her fear. This is an awful situation to be in and one that I can relate to as I'm also a dental phobe. I helped Alison manage her fear and guided her through the treatment process, allowing her to be in control. I rebuilt Alisons smile with fixed bridges, made up of crowns and false teeth to close gaps completing her smile makeover. As you will see Alison was thrilled with the results and in her own words, feels like she's been given her life back.
Watch Amanda's transformation

Dr Uchenna helped Amanda overcome her dental phobia and and gave her a new bridge to hold the damaged teeth in place and a set of porcelain veneers.
Good teeth boost self esteem and after revealing her temporary set of teeth, Amanda is clearly overcome with emotion. Shes finally got her smile back. And at the big reveal her family and friends couldn't be happier for her.
