Month: March 2013
Carol came from Puchong to do her makeover after seeing the makeovers done at our clinic in the blog. She is a student in one of our local universities and will be graduating this July.
When Carol sat on the dental chair , I asked her what she would like to do and she replied, “I would like you to fix my upper teeth.”
I noticed her right central incisor was jutting out and this made the tooth next to it looked tucked inside. It also had a white patch on the central incisor. This is what we called fluorosis.
After I examined Carol’s teeth, I explained to her that I can help her achieved her dream smile. I recommended 4 composite veneers for her 4 front teeth to create a perfectly aligned smile.
Carol agreed. The veneers were done in no time. When I handed her the mirror, Carol did not show much reaction.
I asked her,”What do you think Carol?” She replied,”I think this tooth is a bit longer than the tooth next to it and I still can see the white patch.” She pointed to me the tooth that she wants me to do the adjustment.
I re-examined the veneers and agreed with Carol. After few minutes of adjustment on the veneers, I handed her the mirror again. This time she smiled and said,”Perfect! Thank you doctor.’
I too, was happy with the result.
As we said our goodbyes, I reminded Carol to keep on smiling because now she has a gorgeous smile to show off.
