A private dentist in Edinburgh has become the first practitioner to offer dental veneers to local residents.
The Scotsman reported Dr Biju Krishnan of the Lubiju dental practice in Leith is one of three dentists qualified in Scotland to perform the procedure and hopes his services will be in demand and put to good use on a regular basis.
Dr Krishnan told the publication: "I expect there to be a very high demand for the treatment."
He completed his dental training in California, where he worked to help celebrities get the perfect smile before moving to Scotland earlier this year.
Elsewhere, dentists in Los Angeles have started offering a combination of eastern and western medicine to their patients.
Shahab Akhavan, an LA dentist, noted the pain-relieving properties of eastern medicine can work hand in hand with western technology and techniques to help reduce pain and speed up healing times.
