“What do you do as a living?” I always get this question when I meet new people. “I’m a dentist”. That would be my usual reply. The response I get usually is “Wow!”, (not sure if this a good WOW or a bad WOW, 🙂 […]
Have you ever look in the mirror and keep staring at it and suddenly you realized that your smile is dull? You have a perfect set of teeth yet you are hesitant to flash it to the world because you feel it’s dull?
This is the case of Sabrena. She came to our clinic last week and asking about dental treatment that can brighten the teeth. I did the routine examintaionand suggested her to do Zoom! Whitening treatment and followed with re-doing her old composite fillings.
I showed her my previous cases that I saved on my handphone and after scrolling few pictures, she agreed to the treatment plan.
We started the treatment with scaling and polishing followed with Zoom! Whitening procedure. It was an hour procedure and through out the process, Sabrena did not felt any pain or sensitivity at all. She was all smiling when the treatment ended. She was smiling wider when she saw her own reflection in a mirror that I handed to her. 🙂
After that, it was an easy stage for me. I removed her old composite filling and sculptured the new filling on the tooth as though it was her tooth and not a filling!
It was a 3 hour procedure for Sabrena, though it was long, but her wide smile when she looked in the mirror proved it was worth it.
This is what I call, bringing the life back to a smile!
