Where is the year going to? How about sponsoring someone in this year's Royal Marine Commando Challenge?

Amazing to think that August has almost passed, the last bank holiday weekend of the year starts tomorrow. Soon we will be looking forward to the autumn and Christmas! I can't believe the year is passing so quickly.

Just thought I would post a request for a friend of my wife who is competing in the annual Royal Marine Commando Challenge in a few weeks time. I entered this two years ago and had a great time tackling the Royal Marine's Assault Course on Woodbury Common, we got to crawl through tunnels, wade through mud and get dunked in the infamous sheep dip.

Here's some pictures of my friends and I when we did the Commando Challenge in 2008.

Further ways to change your smile.

I just thought I would write about some other ways that you can radically change your smile.

This week I thought I would show you how we changed someone's smile with tooth whitening and porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells, custom built by skilled dental technicians that are cemented to the front surface of a patient's teeth. Using porcelain veneers we can change the shape, position and colour of the teeth.

This patient was unhappy with the appearance of her upper front teeth, she felt that her teeth were crowded and she wanted a straighter, more symmetrical smile. Other options were discussed with the patient but she decided that porcelain veneers were the treatment she wanted. Prior to preparing the teeth for veneers, we "bleached" the patient's teeth using a home whitening system for two weeks. On the initial appointment the teeth were prepared and provisional veneers were made. Two weeks later we saw the patient again and fitted her new smile, we placed six porcelain veneers.

The patient was delighted with the result.

Here is a picture of the patient before her treatment,

Here is a picture of the patient's smile one month after we cemented her new porcelain veneers.

If this type of dental treatment interests you, and you feel the time is right to consider changing your smile. Please contact our reception team at the Spicer Road Dental Practice on 01392 272408 to arrange a dental health check. We will be happy to help you achieve your dream smile.

Some of my favorite places.

Here are some of  my favourite places that I have visited on several holidays. The photographs were taken by myself, hope you like them.

Yellowstone National park.

Grand Teton National Park.

Landscape Arch, Moab, Utah.

Paris, where I got engaged.

Cape Town and towards Cape Point.

And finally, Cardiff Bay, close to where I grew up.

Let me show you some of my dental work. Some smiles I have transformed using crowns

Here are some examples of the transformations that I have made to some of my patient's smiles. 

Using crowns, we can improve the appearance of discoloured, mis-shapen or heavily filled teeth.

We work together as a team with our dental technicians who demonstrate great skill and artistry to custom build beautiful crowns for our patients. Using my clinical skills and their artistry we can transform your smile.

This patient wanted to improve the appearance of his discoloured upper front teeth.

We treated this patient with three porcelain crowns which dramatically improved the appearance of his upper front teeth.

This patient was unhappy with the appearance of her existing crowns and the black lines you could see next to the gum.

By replacing this patient's existing crowns with new all porcelain crowns we dramatically improved her smile.

If this sort of dental work interests you contact my practice for a dental health check and assessment. Let's see if we can transform your smile too. Our reception team look forward to hearing from you, they can be contacted on 01392 272408.
