As more and more people are keeping their natural teeth into old age, it's understandable that they want them to look good too. Worn, yellow teeth and loose dentures are no longer an acceptable part of old age. Modern techniques and materials allow dentists to rebuild teeth and smiles to there former glory with tooth whitening techniques, veneers and crowns, even missing teeth can be replaced with permanently fixed-in implants and bridges.
It's not just a person's smile that is affected when teeth are broken or missing, chewing function is impaired, often leading to indigestion and a reduced enjoyments at mealtimes. Speech can suffer too: we need our teeth to form certain sounds, without them speech can be slurred and lisping may occur.

Richard has undergone further training from Europe's top clinicians in hard and soft tissue manipulation involving bone grafting and aesthetics. To date, he has successfully placed and restored over 500 implants and is an active member of the Association of Dental Implantology.
