Among the many hundreds of exhibitors on display was GlamSmile – designers of irresistible smiles. GlamSmile serves the dental community with unique porcelain veneers, as well as teeth whitening treatments and a range of oral hygiene products that are recognised worldwide for their technological superiority and unique ease-of-application. Visitors to the GlamSmile stand were keen to learn more about the company’s extra thin (0.3mm) no-prep veneers which are available with a special positioning tray which precisely fits the dental arch and allows the dentist to fit six to 10 veneers at once. In contrast to traditional veneers, up to 10 GlamSmile veneers can be fitted in just 60 minutes – dramatically reducing the normal treatment time. As well as its highly popular veneers, GlamSmile team members also demonstrated the easy-to-apply White Boost home-whitening kit, and Formulation+, a special whitening treatment designed for short but intensive whitening procedures to enhance the whiteness of teeth by up to 10 shades. For more information visit Periproducts Periproducts’ superior product range not only includes the highly effective and clinically researched RetarDEX alcohol free oral rinse, oral spray and SLS free toothpaste, but also an extensive range of innovative interdental products (Interproximal Denti-Brushes with Pivot Technology and Wire-free Denti-Brushes), a tongue cleanser and an ionic action toothbrush. Developed by dental professionals, the patented ingredient CloSYS ΙΙ in the RetarDEX range is antimicrobial, killing both the aerobic and anaerobic bacteria associated with plaque, tooth decay and gum disease. This clinically proven professional formula interferes with the formation of biofilms, inhibits bacterial regrowth and is used for complete periodontal and oral hygiene treatments. Independent clinical tests have proven that the active ingredient prevents bad breath (by eliminating odour-causing Volatile Sulphur Compounds) and that both the toothpaste and oral rinse whiten teeth within 14 days (by gently oxidising and lifting organic stains).

Tel: 01934 710022 UCL EDI Diploma in Implant Dentistry Dr Peter Willy is one of the two principal dentists for Hoburne Dental Practice, a private practice based in Dorset. He has recently graduated from the UCL Eastman Dental Institute with a Diploma in Implant Dentistry. “The course teaches you everything you need to know, from basic concepts up to the latest evidence-based practice,” he says. “The teaching staff, which included internationally renowned experts, were excellent. “There are plenty of hands-on sessions, both in the laboratory and one-to-one surgery with your own patients. Being able to place implants on your own patients under direct supervision at the Eastman is so important to help you get started in practice. “You learn to assess the whole dentition and other relevant aspects to ensure that the implants you place will provide a predictable long-term solution for your patients. “Our practice can now routinely offer in-house implant options to our patients. We have been surprised at the increased interest from patients when it is their own dentist doing the treatment, rather than having to be referred out of the practice. Our patients are happier and it has given the practice a real boost financially.” For further information, please contact Richard Banks, Programme Administrator, on 020 7905 1281, email or visit WhiteWash Laboratories cause a stir atThe Dentistry Show With thousands of delegates flooding the floors of the NEC in Birmingham, The Dentistry Show 2012 was one of the highlights of the year so far.
