Full Smile Makeover.
Three things set jump jockey Liam Treadwell’s victory apart when he romped home on the winner in the greatest race of them all - The Grand National.
The first was that it was his maiden ride in this most famous of races. The second was that his horse, Mon Mome, was a 100/1 outsider. And the third was his teeth.
In what was to become a notorious encounter, the BBC’s irrepressible racing pundit, Clare Balding, thrust her microphone under Liam’s nose and, having congratulated him, famously said: ‘Give us a big grin.’
Then, as the crowd laughed, she pressed on: ‘No, let’s see your teeth, Liam. He hasn’t got the best in the world but you can afford to go and get them done now.’
Liam came to UltraSmile shortly after this episode looking for help.
Dr Nghiem was able to quickly deduced that Liam\'s teeth were actually in good health but he had a condition called hypodontia which affects the number of teeth that we have. It is simply genetic.
Liam\'s case was logistically challenging as it involved a multi disciplines approach and everything had to be done before the next Grand National for Liam to defend his title.
Both Dr Nghiem, our Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Chia and our Periodontist, Dr Khalil worked together to close Liam\'s front teeth, get his gum healthy, dental implants were inserted simultaneously and finally, a full set of crowns and veneers were placed to create the final stunning transformation.
To say that Liam liked his new smile is an understatement! He was overwhelmed!
