Complaint: My first appointment with Dr. Anjum Ansari, a dentist in ******, was on 2/27/13. She had recommended crown lengthening surgery and crown replacement for teeth (#7-10). I expressed my concerns with treatment, as I was happy with my current crowns and feared replacing them. Dr. Ansari promised to restore a beautiful smile with new crowns, as I needed the crown lengthening surgery to improve my gum health. Gum surgery performed on 10/21/13 with Dr. ******* ******. I am happy with the gum surgery as I now have healthy gums, which no longer bleed. I was in temporary crowns for almost a year before receiving final crowns 7/14. I had several issues: one crown (#7) was too short, and another was chipped (#8) and I had to insist it be replaced as Dr. Ansari had tried to bully me into accepting the crowns as is. I felt it was very difficult to express my concerns. It was exhausting, and I was so uncomfortable with the temporary crowns, which felt like bad dentures. My last appointment with Dr. Ansari was on 8/12/14 and she brushed me off informing me there is nothing more she can do. I am seeking reimbursement to have these crowns (7-10) redone appropriately. I am attaching before and after pictures to indicate my dissatisfaction. The right front tooth (#8) catches my bottom lip and is uncomfortable. I am left with a very awkward and uncomfortable smile. I was promised a beautiful smile. I feel taken advantage of! To make matters worse, I paid $5759.81 in advance despite having 3 dental insurance plans that pre authorized the services: Metlife via United Airlines, Delta Dental via Partners, and Tricare dental. It took almost a year before I received reimbursement as services were covered by all 3 plans. I feel I was treated unethically. I am very upset. I have since moved and established care with a dentist in Connecticut. Dr. ******* noted the following: #8 is 2mm wider than #9. #10 jets out bucally and catches her lip and interferes with speech. Discussed tx plan option of occlusal and buccal reduction #22 to make room to position #10 lingually. #8 gingival margin is 2mm higher/apically to #9. The incisal edge of #10 is buccal inclined and 1mm longer than #7 I have been depressed and do not like to smile although it is imperative I do so for my job as a flight attendant. I have expressed my concerns to Dr. Ansari to no avail. I would like to be refunded so I may consider having new crowns done properly. I am currently left with an ugly, awkward, uncomfortable smile. ?
Desired Settlement: I would like an appropriate refund to my insurance company so I may seek appropriate care with another reputable dentist to have the crowns done professionally with a desirable outcome.
