My Thineers Dental Procedure



A few weeks ago I made the decision to undergo a Thineers (Ultra Thin Veneers) dental procedure.  In a nutshell, Thineers is simply a permanent and painless way to a perfect smile.

Although I quite liked my smile the way it was, my teeth were slightly discolored and there was a small gap between my two front teeth, which made me a bit self-conscious.

Working in the entertainment industry, it is very important to be confident at all times, especially when smiling! After having the Thineers fitted, I am certainly boasting more confidence and kind of just want to smile all the time :0)

I decided on Thineers specifically because it is a much easier solution than getting veneers.

Only two very short consultations are necessary.  During the first consultation, which is about half an hour, Dr Wasserman takes the impression of your top teeth over which he will fit the Thineers.  The production of the Thineers is very quick and a week later the placement can be done.  The second consultation, during which he fits the Thineers, only takes about 40 minutes.

The nice thing about this procedure is that there is no filing or grinding of your own teeth.  So, you keep your original teeth and the Thineers are simply fitted over.  So there is no pain and no discomfort!

Doctor Wasserman gave me some advice afterwards to ensure that I maintain my new smile and keep my pearly whites whiter than ever, also keeping in mind that my thineers cannot discolor at all.

If you’re interested in having this procedure done, you can call Dr Wasserman’s practice on 083 239 6510 or send an e-mail to info@thineers.co.za

Be lifted charity lunch and fashion show, 5 October 2011

I try and accommodate as many requests as possible for charities and when doing so I really put some thought into what I am actually supporting and what I am offering my time up for.

This week I offered up some of my time to a charity called ’Be Lifted’. The campaign aims to endorse the importance of mental health for all South Africans. The campaign was generously funded and made possible by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund.

Rachel Tambo and celebrity friends all got together for a Champagne Breakfast and a fashion show by Jan Malan featuring top designers at the magical Shepstone Gardens in Johannesburg on the 5th of October 2011.

It was great to see PJ Powers perform her new song called ‘lifted’ with all proceeds from the sale of the single going to the charity as well as all funds raised at the lunch.

I look forward to my next charity event.
