Three lovely ladies and one makeover!
Three lovely ladies came in for a check up and scaling.
The three good friends all work for the Ministry of Tourism and took time off to come in to also discuss about makeovers.
I saw them one by one … the bravest first!
It turns out that the most scared of all needed the least treatment and so waited outside until it was her turn … though ever so often, she’d wander in to accompany her friends.
Wasilah was the one that found the blog.
She had a tooth that was buried under her gums and finally appeared and started growing a few years ago.
She always smiled with her mouth closed and talked in such a way that she didn’t show her teeth … poor girl.
To make matters worse, the tooth began to grow at an angle, this meant that her lip was raised a bit on one side!
Wasilah asked, “Doctor! Just look at my deformed tooth! Can anything be done?” … actually she said cacat tooth!!
I laughed and said it was easy! She looked at me in disbelief.
“I can do something immediately so you can leave here with a beautiful smile … but I would recommend that you do a crown later as that would be stronger.” I said.
I explained that I could make the tooth longer with composites but, as it was quite a bit that needed to be extended, a crown would be an option with more strength as the whole tooth would be encased by a cap of metal and porcelain … it would take a week to be ready.
Wasilah agreed to do the ‘quickie’ makeover first … it would take me 15 minutes, no more!
I revved up the magic wand … and ta daaah! It was done!
I passed the mirror to Wasilah and she gasped!
Her friends came in and saw her new smile … believe it or not, they said they couldn’t remember that she had a ‘cacat tooth’ in the first place!
I explained to them that if the makeover was done properly ….Â it was normal for people to not be able to tell what was done … it’s supposed to look like Wasilah was born with beautiful teeth! 😉
Fortunately I had taken the Before photos!
I printed out the Makeover Album for Wasilah whilst she and her friends admired her new smile … they teased Wasilah as she still smiled with her mouth shut.
She needed to practise a whole new confident smile now!
As we hugged our goodbyes, I reminded Wasilah to stay away from eating stones, bones and metal rods … I reminded her to eat normally as the makeover was guaranteed 100% … if she managed to break it, I will do the repairs for free … she had a whole month!
The three lovely ladies left soon after, full of smiles and joy.
I love my job.
I get to spread joy.
I get to create beautiful smiles every day! 😉
