The Everest of Dentistry

by Dental Design, on 5th January 2016 | 0 comments

“Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues and featuring Kirsty McCall is one the perennial anthems of the Christmas season.  The lead singer with The Pogues is Shane MacGowan and in addition to his singing career, was equally famous for his awful teeth – well he was, but not anymore, he has them fixed.



In a change from the usual Christmas specials on television, the story of Shane’s teeth are going to be featured in a documentary to be shown over the holiday period.  It is going to be quite a story as his dentist from Ireland, Mr Darragh Mulrooney, described the journey as “the Everest of Dentistry”.  The article suggests that Shane had lost all his teeth through neglect over a prolonged period and took a team of clinicians to achieve the desired end result.


A lot of people are not happy with the appearance of their teeth, in fact 75% of British adult don’t like to smile for the camera.  This is such a shame as a smile is so important to show happiness, particularly when with friends and family over the festive period – remember these days everyone has a camera on their phone, so you always need to be smiling.


Modern dentistry can do so much to improve your smile and improve your confidence:

  • Dental Hygienists should always be the start point on any journey as you need a healthy mouth for any procedure.
  • Tooth whitening is a simple procedure that can do so much to enhance a smile
  • Orthodontics with Mr Chadwick can straighten crooked and misaligned teeth.
  • Mr Bhatia leads our complex surgical cases like Shane’s for implant placement and all oral surgical procedures.
  • Our general dentists, Adam and Aofie, can advise on cosmetic dentistry options such as veneers and ceramic crowns.

We have a great team at the Dental Spa, reflected in our recent award for “Best Patient Care in Wales and the West”.  If you are unhappy with teeth and want improve your smile then come in and see us, we will ensure that the team helps you in overcoming your own dental Everest.
