Miss World hopeful braced for success
A Miss World contestant has flown halfway across the world for pioneering cosmetic dental treatment in Edinburgh, ahead of taking part in the global beauty pageant in London in December.
Dalreena Poonam Gill, 20, the current Miss Singapore World title-holder, will undergo high-speed teeth straightening work from Scottish dentist Biju Krishnan, inventor of the Cfast dental brace system. She hopes the treatment will enhance her chances of being crowned Miss World.
Dr Krishnan has already seen his Cfast system adopted by thousands of dentists and it has been used by celebrities including Holly Willoughby, singer Alexandra Burke and a number of reality TV stars including those from TOWIE and Geordie Shore.
He said: “The Cfast system is taking off all over the world, but we’re not yet fully up and running in South East Asia. So when Dalreena sought treatment from a colleague in Singapore, he referred her to me.”
Student Dalreena will have a computerised scan taken of her teeth, before a customised dental brace is created for her using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology and is then fitted to the inside of her teeth.
Dr Krishnan, who came up with the Cfast concept in 2009, said: “Cfast is purely cosmetic and focused mainly on the front teeth, so it is perfect for adults who simply want to improve their smile and want it to be quick, painless, discreet and affordable.”
He added: “Dalreena’s a pleasure to work with, so I hope the treatment will help her chances of winning. Whatever the result I can say with certainty that she will be happier with her smile after just a few months with the Cfast system.”
