Hayati gets her makeover
Hayati was referred to us by her sister Omi who had visited us for a makeover some weeks ago.
A busy mum, Hayati hadn’t seen a dentist for some time and was quite, quite nervous!
Both sisters had mis-shapen upper teeth and to top things Hayati also had lost two teeth in her lower jaw.
We discussed the treatment plan … there were many options available to replace her lower teeth … and many options to correct the tilted uppers.
Hayati chose to do composite veneers for her upper teeth and to do a bridge for her lowers.
She was still doubtful that it could be done … even in a two stage process … but her sister, having done her makeover earlier, encouraged Hayati, “You won’t regret it! The Makeover will be great for you.”
And so we started with her upper teeth … that was the easy part!
The lowers took a little longer as I had to prepare the models for the technicians. They would need a week to complete the bridge.
On Saturday, Hayati came in for the final touch … she was still nervous.
When we placed the bridge and passed her the mirror she smiled!
Hayati smiled! Both Omi and I teased her about it … you see Hayati never smiled wide … she always covered her mouth or turned her head … and there she was smiling!
The “After” photos still were a little difficult to take though. 😉
Hayati, you got a beautiful smile now … enjoy practising showing it off!!
I love my job.
