Cosmetic DentistryFor a smile that says it all and is absolutely flawless! 

More and more people are becoming curious about cosmetic dentistry and what it has to offer them. Essentially it is any aspect of dentistry which improves your appearance and smile. Once the domain of actors, models and the very wealthy, advances in the field have made cosmetic dentistry available to everyone.

The first stage is to determine which options are best suited to the smile you’d like and then work out a plan. Treatment can be done immediately or over a period of time to suit your circumstances. Quality cosmetic dentistry is a combination of experience, artistic flair, planning, modern techniques and the careful selection of materials and technology.

The personal, social and professional benefits for many are amazing and for some can be life changing. This can have a great impact on self confidence, career prospects and social interactions. Almost any smile, whether it is discoloured, has low luminosity, crowded or missing teeth can be made to look great.

At Killarney Dental we not only work on the aesthetics of your smile, we offer you suggestions and options available to improve your bite (occlusion). Occlusion is an area of dentistry largely ignored in undergraduate dental training not only in New Zealand but around the world. This is the key factor behind the longevity of all dental work. It’s all very well having work placed but having it last decades is another matter entirely.

Call Killarney Dental today and we will offer you a free consultation for cosmetic dentistry where we will advise you on what is possible, listen to what you would like to achieve and work out a customised treatment plan to suit your budget, lifestyle and expectations.

Dr Jeremy Bywater BDS (Otago)



Jeremy is delighted to have recently returned home to New Zealand after spending the last 10 years in England working as a private practice dentist. Prior to moving to the UK Jeremy had worked for four years in a private practice in Auckland after graduating from Otago University in 2000.

Jeremy has attended several advanced courses in cosmetic and general dentistry and has studied with the Dawson academy in London which is world renowned for helping Dentist’s create great looking, long lasting smiles. Jeremy is able to offer tooth straightening techniques that provide faster results than traditional orthodontics at a fraction of the cost. He is also experienced with facial rejuvenation treatments such as the use of botulinum toxin and dermal filler, and is highly motivated to work with each patient to achieve their desired result.

Jeremy places a big emphasis on prevention and will tailor any treatment to each patient’s wants and needs in a relaxed atmosphere. He says that “Dentistry has changed so much over the past decade. There is so much we can do to prevent dental diseases and preserve natural tooth structure rather than just dealing with problems once they arise”. The part of his job that Jeremy enjoys most is helping patients achieve great looking teeth that are comfortable and can be maintained for years to come.

Outside of work Jeremy loves outdoor sports, particularly on the water or snow, and travelling to some of the amazing spots around the country with his wife and two young sons. Previously a musician Jeremy still keeps his hand in on the drums, and is always keen to hear about any good books or films.

Top 10 Wine Producing Countries in the World

While wine tours are fun, but they are also educational experiences as you will be able to gather knowledge on exactly what it takes to preserve the taste year after year. The processes begin right from the vineyards and stretch onto what type of barrels the wines are kept in. During wine tours, you will be invited to perhaps sample a few grapes straight from the vine. Most vineyards will invite you in to also check out the production area. Also ultimately there will be wine tasting as well.

So let’s check out the top wine regions of the world where you will be able to enjoy big or small group wine tours.


With major wines like Grenache, Merlot, Chardonnay, Carignan, Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and more, France gets the top contending spot. But France is also lowering production every year.


Only second to France, Italy produces wines like Merlot, Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano Toscano, Montepulciano, Prosecco and more. But like France, they have also started decreasing production.


Home to the largest vineyard in the world, Spain produces marvellous riches like the Monastrell, Garnacha, Tempranillo, Airén and Bobal wines. In spite of having the largest vineyard, it has much lower wine yields than Italy and France

United States

The USA or specifically its California region is responsible for producing almost 90% of the wine in the country. It produces delicacies like the Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Noir


Contrary to the top two, Argentina is growing its wine production steadily as it relies on wine exports as well. It produces gems like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec, and Bonarda.


Australia, like Argentina, also relies on the wine export market primarily. Australia is also expanding their business to other business locations outside of the country. It produces the Chardonnay and Shiraz notably.


Germany is known for its football as well as for its aromatic white wines which are primarily exported to the UK and US. It produces the famous Müller-Thurgau and Riesling.

South Africa

South Africa is a land isolated somehow from the rest of Africa with its cape and cricket. But apart from being famous for those two, South Africa also churns out the largest volume of brandy in the world. It is known for its Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and especially Chenin Blanc.


Chile is a proud producer of the red wine varieties, especially of Carmenere which is fondly known as the ‘lost varietal’ of Bordeaux. But it also produces Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Carménère for the export markets which demand traditional varieties more.


Known for its port wine, this high alcohol content dessert hails from northern Portugal and is made by blending up several grape varieties Luke the Alvarinho, Arinto, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and more.

Around the top 3 regions have a specific taste of their own, so the next time you visit you can try out something authentic from there.

What are the different types of ring settings?

The engagement rings represent the most important day in a bride’s romantic life and so it is important to choose the setting of the ring carefully. This defining characteristic of the ring also has an effect on the price of the ring. The setting also affects the ultimate look of the ring as it can either maximize or minimize its appearance. So let’s analyze the various types of popular settings:

  • Prong setting: Considered to be the classic engagement ring setting; here, claws hold the stone in place and as prong setting generally contains four or six prongs which come in various sizes- flat, pointed, round or shaped like a V.


  • Bezel Setting: Here, a metal rim encircles the stone being used to keep it in its place and in partial bezel settings, the metal only encircles a part of the stone.


  • Tension setting: The stone is held in place by pressure. The sides of the stone are exposed in this setting and so it appears to be floating.


  • Channel setting: The setting keeps diamonds in place by using horizontal channels on the band of the ring.


  • Pavé setting: This setting involves small diamonds which are set together using tiny beads made out of metal. Moreover, such a close setting gives a mirage of having a continuous chain of diamonds. Furthermore, when these small stones are used for surrounding a central stone, then it is called a halo setting that makes the ring appear really large.


  • Micro-Pavé setting: It actually involves the same technique as the above one, but the difference is that it uses smaller stones.


  • Three-Stone Ring setting: Here, three stones are set side by side using three sets of prongs to hold them in place. The central stone is larger than the other stones and they come together to symbolize the past present and future.


  • Cathedral setting: Metal arches are used here, usually with prongs or perhaps with a Bexel enter after jumping past the arches so as to keep the stone mounted high above the setting


  • Bar setting: The concept is similar to that of channel setting where a bar setting is used to place stones, which are in turn being held in place by the channel and are also secured by metal bars from the stone’s either sides.


  • Gypsy setting: Here, diamonds are embedded into the ring’s band and then the big stone is drilled into the ring’s head. Also known as a flush setting, this setting is popular.


  • Cluster setting: In this setting, a lot of diamonds get set together closely in a cluster like formation. The setting is comprised of a larger central stone which is put in with the smaller stones or with a variety of stone sizes. From afar it doesn’t look like a shimmering cluster, but rather like one large continuous stone.

The bottom line is that one needs to choose the setting according to their needs and plans. Most couples have a vision of how they want the rings to be like. If not, then talking to each other about it will be great and when you do it, you will find such similar engagement rings in Auckland, Queensland, Sydney, Hong Kong and more such areas all over the world.

Tips for Using Promotional Products Everyone Must Know

If you have attended a seminar before, chances are, you have received a gift shirt, pen, or bag after the event. Most of the time, they hand out some chocolates or business cards before you leave. Now, if it’s your turn to hand out presents in a trade show or a conference, here are the following tips that can assure you your creative promotional products will work.

  1. Master the art of consistency

You need to develop consistency especially when it comes to your promotional products. In that way, when someone sees a certain color or a particular symbol, they will automatically remember your brand. For instance, if your company’s color scheme is turquoise, make sure that the rest of your promotional products, be it a pen, a shirt, or a tote bag, have a touch of turquoise in it. In that way, your audience will be able to remember you easily.

  1. Choose useful items

As much as possible, you might want to give out items that people are really using in their daily lives. Do not invest your money in items they are most likely to throw away before they even get home. For instance, you can opt for small traveling kits, sporting goods, shirts, and pens. In that way, you can rest assured that the audience will most likely keep and use the product.

  1. Always consider your audience

It is important to consider your audience before you chooses your promotional products. Elder people wouldn’t be too happy to receive confectionary and stress balls. If you are going to conduct a seminar about traveling and all of your audience like to travel a lot, it is wise to hand out traveling goods and toiletry bags instead of chocolates and business cards after the event. They will most likely appreciate it and think that you are exerting an effort to support their needs all the while spreading the brand of your company just by handing them goods.

  1. Join partnerships

We recommend you join partnerships with other companies in order to increase your chances of spreading the word about your company. Choose a product that will complement your own product instead of a competition. For instance, if your company is making coffee and other brewery products, it is wise to choose a company that offers personalized mugs and the likes. Make sure that someone is going to take pictures of the events and tag each other. The audience of the other company will be able to view your company’s products as well, increasing your chances of drawing potential buyers into your website.

Conducting a marketing campaign is never easy. Just make sure to follow the aforementioned tips in order to make sure that your creative promotional products will work. Considering the fact that you’re going to invest money in buying the items and customizing it according to your company’s scheme, a few factors to consider it handy to ensure that you’re going to reach a wider range of audience and have a successful seminar!
