    Crowns

    Posted on 18 June, 2019 by Hillsborough Dental

    The crowns on Becky’s front teeth had always annoyed her because they didn’t match her natural teeth. But when a black line developed along her gum line where the base metal was showing, she was distraught. And Becky isn’t alone - it’s one of a number of problems many people run into with their crowns. When Becky came to us at Hillsborough Dental, she told us it had reached the stage she hardly ever smiled because she was so unhappy with her teeth. “I had tried to get the problem...

    If you’re one of the increasing number of people in Northern Ireland considering anti-wrinkle treatment (such as Azzalure, Botox or dermal fillers), I wonder where you might consider going for it? A dermatologist? A beautician? A medical clinic or spa? There are many options available, but have you ever considered that your dentist might actually be the one best equipped?

It seems no matter how we try to bluff these things, our faces still betray us with a baffled “where on earth do I know him from?” look. But it’s ok, I understand - it’s that problem of meeting people out of context, coupled with the extra problem that in work patients usually only see half of my face (the other half being hidden under a dental mask) and I’m usually peering at them from an...
