Users of dentures usually find it challenging to wear them because they can affect one’s self-confidence if not worn right, as a user is usually afraid that the dentures will come off while he or she is either eating, talking, laughing or singing.Mohd Khairuddin Ja’afar has been wearing dentures for years and had faced certain challenges from time to time.
“Sometimes I don’t feel confident with the way my dentures fit but since I started wearing Polident® from 2012, I felt that I have regained my self-confidence and I wear it everyday.
It gave me the confidence to go to the audition of Kilauan Emas as I’m not afraid to sing using Polident® dentures.Season three of Kilauan Emas will also feature two big names who have years of experience in the Malaysian music industry - musician and composer Sri Wirama Adnan Abu Hassan and vocal consultant Cikgu Siti Hajar. Both of them will be responsible in guiding the contestants as vocal coaches in this programme.
