Great-grandmother decides to celebrate lottery win by buying herself new teeth


A New Zealand woman who was travelling in the UK when she found out she had won the EuroMillions has said she would like to spend her winnings on several luxury trips abroad, as well as a new car, and a brand new set of teeth.

Great-grandmother Diana de Gillio found out last week that she had scooped the £1million prize after visiting a post office in Norwich and asking about the EuroMillions Mega Friday Draw. Calling herself ‘a born optimist’ Diana decided to purchase a ticket for five Lucky Dips and returned the following day to get her tickets checked. To her surprise, the last ticket to be checked produced two slips of paper from the machine and the shop assistant told her to get in touch with Camelot to confirm the big win.

Diana was in the UK celebrating her 70th birthday and now she says she will be travelling to Bali and Lombok with a friend she met on her travels in China. She explains that she will be going back to New Zealand at the end of the month to ‘help the family out’, then she has decided to buy a house, a new car, new glasses, and a finally a new set of teeth – which should hopefully last her as she spends her time zig-zagging across the globe.


Michael Buble loses a tooth on stage


Michael Buble suffered a dental emergency on stage at his show in Sydney on Friday night, but thankfully none of his fans realised there was a problem until he posted a picture of his dental treatment on website Instagram afterwards.

The singer managed to catch his front tooth on the microphone during the performance in Sydney and had to visit the dentist to get the damage repaired before his final show in the country. Michael posted a picture of himself in the dentist’s chair as the tooth was replaced and he still managed to crack a smile for his fans so that no one would worried about him.

Alongside the picture, Michael posted about his treatment, saying ‘Thankfully no one knew, but I knocked my tooth out with my microphone last night during the second song!!’ Reassuring his fans, he added ‘Don’t worry, I’m at the dentist getting fixed up for my final show tonight in #Sydney #australia #mbworldtour #tourlife.’

Buble was then pictured leaving the surgery after undergoing treatment and seemed in good spirits for his New Zealand dates, which kick off on Wednesday. They 38-year-old has been joined by his wife Luisana Lopilato and their nine-month-old son Noah, who should be able to keep him smiling while he recovers from the treatment.

Sugary foods ‘could be resistant to teeth brushing’


Sugary foods 'could be resistant to teeth brushing'Individuals hoping to avoid needing emergency dentistry should avoid consuming large amounts of junk food in a bid to protect their oral health.

A group of New Zealand researchers have discovered that the effects of sugary and acidic foods may cause more damage than can be reversed by brushing teeth.

Scientists from the Dental Association found that individuals who eat high quantities of junk food were at a considerably higher risk of sustaining dental holes.

The research emerges after statistics revealed that only 21 per cent of young people in New Zealand had considered limiting their intake of sugar to promote overall health.

Deepa Krishnan from the Dental Association said: “The study suggests the effects of junk food extend beyond poor nutrition, obesity and its associated risks, to poor oral health, which remains the most common chronic disease in New Zealand.”

The British Dental Health Foundation recommends that people consume a diet that is high in vitamins and minerals, such as fruit and vegetables, to prevent gum disease.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800717355-ADNFCR

New Zealand police hunt Botox thief


New Zealand police hunt Botox thiefImage-conscious individuals considering Botox treatments to improve their appearance could be surprised to hear the lengths some people will go to get it.

According to reports, police in New Zealand have recently ended their search for a woman who failed to pay for $780 (£491) worth of injections.

The offender told staff at the Christchurch clinic that she had left her purse in the car after having treatment done to improve the appearance of her crow's feet and frown lines.

However, the image-conscious woman did not get far after members of the public were able to identify her from a picture taken before she received the injections.

Set to appear in the Nelson District Court on Monday (August 22nd), the offender faces a charge of obtaining the anti-wrinkle product by deception.

This news comes after Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester reportedly filed a lawsuit against her mother after she suspected money she had sent home for her brother was being spent on a range of cosmetic procedures. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800704219-ADNFCR

Mothers with poor oral health ‘can increase likelihood of tooth loss in children’


Mothers with poor oral health 'can increase likelihood of tooth loss in children'Parents looking to limit the chances of their child needing emergency dentistry could be interested in the findings from a new study.

According to the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF), mothers with poor oral health could pass on the same issues to their children in later life.

The research, conducted by scientists in New Zealand, revealed that 45.1 per cent of youngsters whose mothers had dental health problems suffered from severe tooth decay.

Strengthening the belief that oral health is affected by genetic and environmental factors, the research consisted of over 1,000 children born in 1972 and 1973.

"We must target parents to educate their children in the hope they can better their own oral health and pass the message on to future generations," remarked Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the BDHF.

The findings emerged after previous research established a link between women with gum disease and difficulty with conception.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800618419-ADNFCR

Home teeth whitening ‘can damage oral health’


Home teeth whitening 'can damage oral health'          People considering London teeth whitening have been urged to seek professional treatment.

Medical experts have advised people to avoid at-home teeth whitening procedures which could be dangerous if used incorrectly.

This news comes after a woman in New Zealand was left in extreme pain and with bleached gums for more than a day after receiving treatment from an unqualified practitioner, the Sunday Star Times reports.

The country's Environmental Risk Management Authority has called for a meeting to propose a ban of over-the-counter tooth whitening kits containing more than 3.6 per cent hydrogen peroxide.

Experts also warned that undergoing teeth whitening procedures too soon after polishing treatments could be harmful to teeth and recommended that patients wait for two weeks.

Meanwhile, website Make My Teeth Whiter has suggested people use whitening toothpaste to bring out the natural shine of their smile.

The toothpaste contains mild chemicals to remove light stains on the teeth.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800503031-ADNFCR

Models ‘often use botox to get rid of frown lines’


Models 'often use botox to get rid of frown lines'Models looking to freshen up their faces often turn to botox.

This is according to cosmetologist Falguni Shah, who told NDTV Movies that botox helps the stars of the catwalk to wave goodbye to their frown lines.

She explained that the hectic schedules that many models have means they can end up looking very tired.

Bright lights and camera flashbulbs, which are an every day part of many models’ lives, can also have a negative effect on the skin.

Therefore, botox is an easy and simple way for models to look their best at all times, Ms Shah explained.

“Earlier, models used to approach us mostly for hair removals and tummy tucks and liposuctions, but now they go in for a lot more,” the expert commented. “[They] don’t want to look tired in the pictures.”

Cosmetic medicine doctor Catherine Stone recently told New Zealand’s 3News that botox can also make ordinary people look and feel great.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800069974-ADNFCR

Botox ‘can help people look and feel great’


Botox can make people feel better, says one sourceHaving botox injections is one way that people can look and feel wonderful.

This is the view of cosmetic medicine doctor Catherine Stone, who told New Zealand’s 3News that the procedure is increasingly being incorporated into many people’s wellness routines alongside haircuts.

She explained that this is largely due to a shift in perception about botox, which is no longer seen as something that makes people’s faces appear fake.

This, the expert explained, is because many of these types of operation are carried out with a subtle touch, which refreshes rather than totally changes people’s appearance.

“The focus has really come away from instead of being about fixing lines and wrinkles, it’s about how can we get you looking your best,” Dr Stone remarked.

Earlier this month in the UK, the government backed the creation of a register which holds the details of responsible providers of cosmetic surgery such as botox.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800069963-ADNFCR

Cosmetic dental procedures ‘can give people flawless teeth’


Cosmetic dental procedures 'can give people flawless teeth'Men and women who want to have flawless teeth could opt for having cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth implants, it has been suggested.

A report in the Helsinki Times gave readers advice on creating the perfect smile and informed them of the different dental operations they can have, including dental implants and teeth whitening.

It said: “Cosmetic dentistry means procedures to correct flaws that affect dental appearance.”

The writer stated that the popularity of dental procedures “has probably grown somewhat” in Finland.

A recent study was conducted to help scientists understand how people respond to their dental implants, by making a 3D model of a reptile called a tuaara.

Researchers from the University of Hull, University College London and the Hull York Medical School stated that they were able to see how the reptile from New Zealand – which has teeth fused to its jaw bone – is able to chew without damaging its teeth.  ADNFCR-2621-ID-800062155-ADNFCR

Botox ‘booming in New Zealand’


People in New Zealand are finding Botox popular.

New Zealanders are flocking to cosmetic dentistry surgeries across the country to have Botox treatments carried out, it has been revealed.

According to, figures from the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine have shown that in 2009, New Zealand and Australia were among the biggest users of Botox in the world.

In fact, the industry grew significantly last year, despite the effects of the global economic downturn and the impact this had on people’s disposable incomes.

Dr Ewan Adam, a dental professional from New Zealand, said: “It’s no longer seen as a bizarre thing to do.”

Elsewhere, Dr William Greenberg at Skin Thera P Medical Cosmetic & Laser Spa in New York recently claimed that Botox treatments can be used to fill smile lines and wrinkles, while dermal fillers can also be effective in tackling these problems.

He argued that the procedures can help people roll back the years in terms of their appearance.
