I’m shy to Smile – Dr. Shanaz

Aiden always thought that his smile wasn’t good enough. So he rarely smiles. When I asked him to smile, I found out that one of his teeth was shorter than the other. This usually happens when a filling was done a long time ago, and…

Correcting the “Little Tooth”!: DR DAMALIS

Correcting the “Little Tooth”!: DR DAMALIS

Madam Giang and Mr Collier have been regular patients of ours. However, they will be relocating to the United States and therefore Madam Giang requested for a smile makeover before they leave Malaysia.

She wanted whiter teeth and to have her “little tooth” (known as a peg-shaped tooth) corrected. After discussing the treatment plan, she decided to proceed with whitening and composite veneers to improve her smile.

Immediately after whitening

We started off with a scaling, followed by Zoom! whitening which took approximately 90 minutes in total. It was a comfortable procedure and the outcome? The shade of her teeth improved by 12 shades (from C4 to B2)! Madam Giang was very happy with the result!

Immediately after whitening

We then scheduled another appointment for Madam Giang for composite veneers. This is crucial as it ensures that her teeth are rehydrated prior to the procedure.

In the next visit, it took us about two hours to have the composite veneers done. It was a pain free procedure and after polishing, I passed Madam Giang a mirror so that she can have a look at her new smile. She was overjoyed as the “little tooth” has been corrected and her smile is more symmetrical now.

I’m glad we managed to fulfil her request before she embarks on a new journey. Hope you enjoy your new smile Madam Giang. Have a safe journey back to the United States!
