Lak Mun gets a new smile
Lak Mun, an engineer with a petrochemical company made his appointment at the insistence of his wife.
His wife had been a patient of ours for some time now, but Lak Mun had always been a little nervous of visiting dentists, so he had resisted coming for his appointment!
It didn’t help that Lak Mun’s job had him travel all over the region … “Besides,” he said, “I don’t really have to meet people!”
But finally Lak Mun was there in the the dental chair!
After the intial check up, Lak Mun said he wanted to have a bridge done for his missing lower molar. Naturally I just had to ask him if he was planning to get a makeover for his front teeth too! 😉
He laughed and said yes!
I tried several times to get a good ‘Before’ photo but Lak Mun was not used to smiling wide (as you can see in the photo above) … however he was quite patient and tried his best …
“Ah, just wait ’til I finish his new smile … I’m sure the ‘After’ photo will be much easier to take” I thought silently.
It was a little complicated as Lak Mun also had a tooth that needed root treatment … one of them had begun to darken quite badly.
When I finished, I smiled at Lak Mun and asked, “Well? Did it hurt?”
Lak Mun laughed and said, “Not at all!”
That’s when I passed him the magic mirror …. he just said “Wow!” and looked disbelieving!
“Please thank your wife for me!” I said as I printed his Makeover Album and said goodbye.
Don’t forget you still need some more work done, Lak Mun, and I promise … the bridge and root treatment won’t hurt too!
