Rotary Club

President Norman Black was in the chair for the weekly meeting of Polmont Rotary Club. After dinner and some business, Rotarian Brian Sharp introduced Dr Bilal Ansari from Falkirk Dental Care who sponsors our Polmont Community Award. Dr Ansari’s topic for the evening was ‘Aesthetic Dentistry’. Using PowerPoint, Bilal demonstrated to the club members and partners the meaning and techniques of Aesthetic Dentistry. The aim is to improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth, gums and bite. Bilal showed how this could be achieved using the latest state of the art techniques. By using wax the dentist can show the design to the patient before fitting a crown. Photos and 3D simulations can also be used to demonstrate what the final product will look like. In all of the consultations and practice, minimal invasive dentistry is the aim at all times. Bilal went on to show examples of teeth whitening, veneers, crowns and fillings of different types. After a good number of questions, during the talk as well as after, the vote of thanks was given by Rotarian Ian McLean. Information on Polmont Rotary Club can be found at www.polmontrotary.org.
