Woman mortified by Lego-style teeth after botched dental work


A young British woman claims she was left with Lego-style teeth after a botched operation overseas.

Aida Azizii, 26, was in Iran in early May when she spontaneously decided to have a composite bonding – as it only cost 965 Australian dollars for 19 teeth.

But after six hours in the dentist’s chair, she says the disastrous procedure left her with teeth that looked like Lego bricks.

Aida, a project manager from London, made the impulsive decision to make the connection while visiting family in Tehran because Iran was cheaper than the UK and Turkey.

“I had great confidence in this new doctor who was recommended to me,” she said.

“I didn’t see any social media accounts, I just booked him on the spot, and he did it in one appointment, which I should have seen as a red flag at the departure.

Looking back, there were other warning signs as well.

“When the procedure started, the dentist was busy with another patient, so his assistant started work,” Aida said.

“She kept telling me to trust her like she always does and it’s her job.

“I just wanted a natural white color.

“She insisted that it would give me a really nice, shiny white color and it would fade in a year.

“She chose the whitest color I have ever seen. They were like piano keys.

“She only did the bottom four teeth and then had to leave, so the doctor eventually took over.”

When the doctor finished and Aida looked in the mirror, she couldn’t believe the result.

“I looked like a horse. They were way too big. But he told me I would get used to it,” she said.

“I wasn’t even able to eat because my back teeth weren’t touching.

“And the tip of my tongue was sore as it hit the back of the teeth because the composite wasn’t bonded properly.

“My lips got so dry because I couldn’t close my mouth and my voice changed too.”

Aida returned to the clinic a few days later to have her “teeth shaved some more”.

“I was in so much pain and there was so much pressure on my front teeth,” she said.

“Again, the doctor was busy, so the assistant had to fix them.

“Always telling myself that I could trust her, I reluctantly let her work on my teeth again. I was just in so much pain.

The 26-year-old has since had her teeth corrected and posted her ordeal online.

“I found another doctor while I was still in Iran,” she said.

“He couldn’t believe how badly they had been done and asked me how long the former doctor had been a doctor, but I wasn’t sure.

“I was told that because they were so big and all the pressure was on my front teeth, if I hadn’t treated them my natural teeth would eventually have fallen out.”

“It was me who was stupid”

Aida admits that she should have done some research before proceeding with the procedure.

“Luckily my teeth are fine now, just very white,” she said.

“It cost me an extra £200 (A$350) but I’m so glad I saved my teeth from falling out.

“In hindsight, I don’t even think the first man I saw was a doctor.

“I guess I didn’t look for a certificate, so it was me who was stupid.

“But at least it was just composite bonding and not veneers, so my natural teeth weren’t shaved.”
