Angie the Groom’s Mum gets her makeover

Angie came in with her future daughter-in-law, Karen. I had done a makeover for Karen some years ago and she had a bit of touching up to do before her wedding in June. Karen walked in with her mother-in-law-to-be Angie. Angie looked so young I

It isn’t often when I get an entire family come in together for their makeovers! I had a mother and daughter get their makeovers many years ago. Candy, Apple and their mum Mdm Choy were referred to me by my friend and business associate from

Hasniza’s new smile

Hasniza’s new smile

Hasniza before

Hasniza is an accountant  … yes, but she works in the pharmacy of a medical facility in Kuala Lumpur. She came in yesterday with her sister who waited patiently in the sitting area, not knowing that Hasniza was there for a makeover.

I asked Hasniza what happened to her front tooth … she said she fell when she was little and it broke … she shrugged.

I told her I could make everything look pretty straight but the lower canine will probably need to be removed.

Her upper teeth was easy to do really, she just needed to have 4 composite veneers … it was the lowers that was going to be just a little tricky!

Hasniza's side view before

I could disguise her premolar to look like a canine pretty easily and even make the tooth that was hidden more forwards, I explained … but the canine, well, it was just too far down and besides it sort of pulled out her lip a bit.

Hasniza didn’t mind a bit … she was already mentally prepared as she knew if she was going to do braces (which wasn’t an option she wanted to take anyways) she’d probably need to remove 4 teeth!!!

Removing just one tooth was great news!

Hasliza's new smile ... gorgeous!

And the greater news was she’d walk out the clinic with her beautiful smile too!

I started with the upper teeth … it didn’t take long at all … and Hasniza didn’t ask me the usual question about it being painful too.

When I asked her how come she didn’t worry that it was going to be painful, she said, “I’ve read nearly all your posts on the blog!” I laughed.

It’s so nice to hear that people actually read this blog … sometimes I wonder if they do. I get a lot of feedback from my patients via email and the Facebook Page Dentist Malaysia when I post it there, but not many actually post there comments on the blog itself 😉

Hasniza after the makeover but before we took out the canine

I always get from patients who walk in from reading the blog that they make the appointment because of the many photos and the comments from the patients … it’s so important … so I always ask people to comment so others get to read their feedback.

Hasniza was no different … when I finished both the uppers and lowers I asked her … so was it painful? She laughed … Nope!!! It didn’t hurt at all.

But she still needed to take out the canine.

I did that last and also told Hasniza she needed to come in again after a week or two, as I wanted to check on the border of the composite veneer there.

Hasniza's right side before

After we took out the tooth, Hasniza looked at me in shock … the extraction of the canine was painless too … what a relief.

The best part was her sister’s reaction when Hasniza walked out … she couldn’t believe her eyes!

And Hasniza?

Well she couldn’t believe her eyes either! 😉

and she looked like she was about to cry … with joy!

All done!

I love my job …

I get to make people beautiful … and happy … every single day!

PS. I didn’t take photos of after the extraction yet … Hasniza, don’t forget I still need to tidy that little bit OK … I’ll see you in a few days.

Shy Amira gets a boost

Shy Amira gets a boost

Sometimes I get introduced to really, really shy people. Pn Sayati, a regular patient, made the appointment for her 19 year old daughter, Amira. When Amira walked in to the clinic, I was struck with her shyness … Amira is a lovely girl but she

Roha had a toothache. She is an undergraduate in a local university and had met my son Shanaz. He gave her our clinic number so she made the appointment. Roha and her friend Awin walked in yesterday. I asked her what she didn’t like about
