Doctor :  
I finished reading your previous chat transcript
Doctor :  
and understand your mother's unease with dentists
User :   God Bless!
Doctor :  
but there are certain instruments and expertise required for dental work
Doctor :  
which will not be available in your house
User :   I have the complete kit
User :   her old dentist gifted her with this
Doctor :  
And I would also like to explain that this work can backfire badly if improperly done
Doctor :  
in terms of colour matching and finish
User :   You mean it could be dangerous?
User :   about materials?
Doctor :  
no
User :   oh...
Doctor :  
in terms of aesthetics
Doctor :  
the looks
User :   bad colors?
User :   the teeth are the superior ones
Doctor :  
Madam
User :   are the two incisives, are covered by mouth
Doctor :  
what I am trying to explain is this
Doctor :  
there are certain procedures and instruments required for good results
User :   I understand
Doctor :  
and this is possible preferably with the help of dentist
Doctor :  
so your mother might have an issue with seeing a dentist
User :   but even if it would be temporary, just to go to wedding cremnoy?
User :   ceremony
Doctor :   Then follow the instructions without any reference to the risks involved
Doctor :  
Choose the area to be retouched and isolate with cotton rolls
Doctor :  
air spray the area to dry
User :   ok
User :   ok
User :   that's right
Doctor :  
then apply etch onto the area without any water or saliva contamination
Doctor :  
allow for 30 seconds to a minute
Doctor :  
and then blow dry with air apray
User :   you mean etch gel?
Doctor :  
then colour match the correct composite tube
Doctor :  
then take a portion of the composite with any pointed, but blunt instrument\
Doctor :  
and spread evenly on the affected area
User :   the instructions talk about Porcelain Primer
Doctor :  
then mould the composite so that there are no rough edges or surface blemishes
Doctor :  
it should be flush with the surrounding areas
User :   ok
Doctor :  
you can put the primer before putting the composite
User :   ok
Doctor :  
once you have applied the composite
Doctor :  
allow it to set for about 2-3 minutes
Doctor :  
then finish with a polishing bur
Doctor :  
the polishing is impossible at home
Doctor :  
but you can still try
Doctor :  
You are doing this at your own risk
User :   yes,
Doctor :  
and there is nothing else that I can add
Doctor :  
Would still suggest that you visit a Doctor
User :   my mother is really depressed about her teeth situations
Doctor :  
sorry Dentist
Doctor :  
but I can understand your situation
Doctor :  
and hence the suggestion
Doctor :  
Hope this helps
Doctor :  
if there is anything else I would be glad to clarify
User :   and she's ashamed to make herself seen by the d entist too
User :   you can understand how complex is the situation, we have to g o step by step, since she panic attachs just thinking to see a dentist
Doctor :   Can I know your mother's age?

User :   she has panic attachs
User :   70
Doctor :  
ok
User :   she 's gone to the same dentist for more than 40 years
Doctor :  
Hope everything sorts out well
User :   now he retired
Doctor :  
Anything else that I can help you with?
User :   but even before she felt really badly about dentist, she felt bad before and after, with terrible headache
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
Can understand
Doctor :  
Old age and associated problems
User :   yes, may I resume the instructions here on the box, so that I know how to make everything without being w rong

User :   I've been looking for this live chat for more than one year
User :   just the last question
Doctor :   Ok, proceed
User :   I may use the composit without curing light, even if it's not self-curing?
Doctor :   But better to use it after curing
User :   we have not the curing light
Doctor :   It would be impossible to use it without the light cure

Doctor :  
So you need to do it

You will need to approach the local surgical shop or the nearby dentist
User :   that's right
