A dental jewellery festival was organised at Thind Dental Clinic, Jamalpur, on Friday. The festival recorded a huge response from young men and women alike.
Namrata Sinmar, who studies art at Khalsa College, was very happy to get dental jewellery for her tooth. "I saw the photograph of dental jewellery in a film magazine, and was after my mother that I wanted it. My mother agreed, and she insisted that I must get the dental jewel fixed from a dentist only."
Sukhwinder Kaur, an NRI, came all the way from Moga to get the dental jewel fixed on her tooth.
Sandeep Singh, an engineer who works in the private sector, came to the festival with a friend, and got a shining jewel on his tooth.
In addition to the young men and women, Dr Thind had a surprise guest: a 58-year-old businessman. Madan Gaba, a resident of Tajpur Road who owns a mobile store, came with his wife Harinder Gaba. "Her husband got the dental jewel fixed, and our entire team was delighted to see both of them so happy," said Dr Thind.
Madan Gaba said he was inspired by a family friend who had dental jewellery on her tooth. "There is a popular song of Gurdas Mann that says dil hona chahida jawan te umran ch ki rakheya. That is what drives me too," he said with a smile.
Dental jewellery refers to tiny pieces of jewellery designed to be bonded to the teeth. These can be made of gold, white gold set with diamonds, precious stones or crystals. Dental jewellery is bonded to the tooth with medically approved dental glue or dental composites. These are shiny and beautiful, and are worn to enhance the beauty of a person's smile without risk of any damage or allergies.
