12 Tuesday November 7 2017 Latest Christchurch news at News SOUTHERN VIEW Local News Now Fire rages, homes at risk Huge turnout for bike show • By Sophie Cornish THE SMASH Palace Bike Show took New Brighton by storm on Saturday. “It went really well, everyone had a ball,” said event organiser Jason Mill. Originally, 20 heats were planned for the demonstration but Mr Mill said on the day there was close to 60. Tony Hockley, 82, son of former bike enthusiast and founding member of the Pioneer Motorcycle Club Geoff Hockley, raced on the day. The event was linked to the late Mr Hockley, who was involved in the first ever bike races on New Brighton beach in the early 1900s. Event organisers had one lap planned for Tony, who ended up lining up for the next six races afterwards. “We couldn’t get him off the bike,” said Mr Mill. Between 3000-4000 spectators showed up and the seaside market said they had one of their busiest markets of the year, said Mr Mill. Originally the event was planned to be biennial, however, following feedback from spectators, Mr Mill thinks this may change. “The word I kept hearing was next year . . . if the community wants it, we will do it.” ENTHUSIASTS: Between 3000-4000 people turned out in New Brighton on Saturday for the Smash Palace Bike Show.

2 SOUTHERN [Edition VIEW datE] Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday November 7 2017 13 HEALTH & BEAUTY Cosmetic dentistry with a personal approach A smile that has been improved and enhanced with cosmetic dentistry treatment can have a significant and positive effect on a person’s self-confidence in any situation – whether social or business. That’s where Smile Concepts in Colombo Street, Sydenham comes into the picture. Offering a personal approach to dentistry, the experienced team at Smile Concepts provides a full range of cosmetic dental treatments, including colour restoration, veneers, bridges, crowns, dental implants and teeth whitening. For teeth whitening they use the sought-after Zoom whitening system, currently one of the most effective and safest methods available on the market. For anyone seeking cosmetic treatment they offer advice on the best and most reasonably priced options, but ultimately it is the patient’s decision as to what treatment is given. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, Smile Concepts provides full and partial dentures as well as the full range of general dentistry treatment at reasonable prices, including root canals and wisdom teeth extraction. They also provide dental care services for children and adolescents with special needs. For nervous patients, they provide conscious sedation (either oral sedation or ‘laughing gas’), making the process a lot less stressful, and with their emphasis on preventative dentistry, they recommend regular checkups to eliminate major problems occurring. Smile Concepts’ dental hygienist helps to keep gums healthy, and by following her advice on healthy oral habits you will keep your teeth and gums in good condition between visits.
