Wedding planner who lost his teeth in an accident gains a new ‘Simon Cowell’ smile

Bolton News Article - Cosmetic Dental Work

Cosmetic dental work has completely transformed his appearance.

After losing a lot of his teeth in a serious car accident and then neglecting to clean his remaining teeth because of the pain, Bolton wedding planner Darren Hickey has now plucked up the courage to undergo the professional cosmetic dental work that has rewarded him with a brilliant smile to rival Simon Cowell.

Mr Hickey, 49, who runs Ridgemont House wedding venue along with his partner Neil Parkinson, also suffered a severe stroke several years ago and after spending more than a year in hospital he decided he wanted to get on with the rest of his life – and the first thing on his list was to get a winning smile that would kick things off. 

After checking out a number of dental practices that specialise in cosmetic dental work he unhesitatingly chose to go to Carisbrook Dental.

Being a wedding planner who didn’t like to smile it also meant that Darren was very reluctant to appear on any wedding photographs.  “Now,” he says, “I can’t wait to show off my smile.  The cosmetic dental work that Carisbrook provided has not only completely transformed my appearance, but it has given me so much more added confidence.”

Carisbrook are widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading clinics for cosmetic dentistry and after examining Darren’s teeth and discussing with him what it was that he wanted to achieve, Dr Tariq Idrees recommended a course of treatment that included a complete new set of upper porcelain teeth with a dental implant bridge.  In addition and to improve the appearance of Darren’s lower teeth he also made and fitted a combination of bespoke crowns and veneers whilst improving his bite at the same time.

The result of this extensive cosmetic dental work has provided Darren not only with a wonderful new smile, but he can now also eat more easily and the treatment has also filled out his cheeks so that he looks and feels years younger.

Both Darren and Neil are understandably delighted with the results of the cosmetic dental work.  They are so pleased that they chose Carisbrook to undertake the treatment and they can’t thank Dr Idrees enough.
