Today’s Beautiful Smile: Mahira

Najib works for an IT company and was surfing the web for makeovers. He found this blog and called in for an appointment for his bride-to-be, Mahira. They’re about to be married after Aidil Fitri and he wanted to give her an early wedding present in the form of a makeover.

I joked with Mahira that the wedding present was for him too.

The couple came in together and Najib did most of the talking … I guess Mahira was nervous! But then seeing the dentist usually makes most people nervous, doesn’t it?

I took the preliminary photos so I could draw up a treatment plan. I told them of all their options and recommended the composite veneers as Mahira could have her beautiful smile for a fraction of the cost of the more fancy porcelain work and she could have it today.

I suggested a two-visit treatment plan and after a short discussion, Mahira and Najib chose to do the uppers first and do the lowers in the next visit. Yay!!

We started with Najib watching closely … that was just great as we could chat whilst Mahira listened as she could hardly join in the conversation could she, whilst I worked on her that is.

Mahira was finishing her undergraduate course in UIA, I found out, so I told her about my son and how he was doing a foundation course in UIA too. He wants to be a dentist … like his mum, his dad and his grand dad … this means he’s working towards being a third generation dentist!

Wouldn’t it be great if the knowledge of Dentistry was hereditary? He’d have no problems at all … like he’d have “Intel inside”.

We reached the half-way mark and I took photos just before I gave Mahira a break …

She didn’t want to look in the mirror just yet, though Najib was excited with how the look was being created. I kept telling Najib to not say Mahira looked nice …. let’s not spoil the surprise!

We carried on after a short break and I must admit I really took my time with Mahira’s makeover (It took one and a half hours because I fussed so much!)

I mean, let’s face it … there are a few really, really important moments in our lives…. graduation, getting married, the birth of a baby and marrying off our children …. these are moments when we want to look good and feel good.

Getting married is one important event!

At last, I had finished and it was time to hand the mirror to Mahira.

Her gasp said everything! She put down the mirror and looked up at Najib in disbelief!

Oh yes … she loved it.

I do so love my job!

I persuaded the lovely couple to let me take their photo together …. note: Najib’s not smiling widely … Najib’s makeover hasn’t been done yet! 🙂
