Khairi called Amy today and as luck would have it, Amy could squeeze him in during our lunch hour at 1pm.
He came in with two other friends just before 1 … we were still a little busy, so thankfully they were quite ok to sit for a bit, read the magazines and drink the coffee Damalis got ready for them.
At last, Khairi came in … he had extremely short hair which prompted me to ask,”Are you a cop?”
He laughed and said, “No, I’m with the MACC … and I’m nice!”
I just had to smile … duh, even though I usually try to not read the newspapers (I get so depressed at all the bad news that fills our newspapers! ….Someone died, someone got robbed, someone got scammed etcetcetc) … but the MACC is certainly an organization that gets a lot of bad publicity … so even I got his quip.
I laughed and asked him what he wanted me to do.
Khairi said he wanted a clean up and to close the gaps between his teeth. I was told later that Amy had shown him our blog so he had seen pictures of our makeovers!
I told Khairi that one tooth was obviously dead, that’s why it had darkened …. he needed to do root treatment as the tooth was probably quite brittle.
But I could sort out the colour and gaps first and so we could do the treatment on the root in the next few visits. Khairi would leave with a nice smile!
I explained I needed to use 4 composite veneers to even out the upper teeth and close the gaps on each side too.
As I had squeezed him in and he needed to come in again for the root treatment, I suggested we just do the tops first and do the lower teeth (he’ll need 3 composite veneers for them) in the next visit.
So with that treatment plan agreed upon, we revved up the magic wand …
We had to do some preliminary preparations on the darkened tooth first. It isn’t too hard as we have many opaquers and blockers to brighten the tooth up … it was just one short step extra but would make a huge difference to the final colour of the makeover!
In about an hour … after the clean up and the veneers, Khairi was ready for the mirror!
He was amazed! … and immediately asked me when he could come in for his lower teeth. 😉
We printed out the Before and After photos for his Makeover Album and set the next appointment.
I reminded him that even though the composite veneers had disguised the dark tooth, he still had to get the root treated … I hope he remembers!
Until next month, Khairi … I promise to straighten the lowers and sort out the dead tooth too … enjoy your new smile! 😉
