Burn victim Pippie Kruger has received a new set of teeth and spectacles.
â€œNow Pippie can smile with a mouth full of teeth and hopefully the glasses will strengthen her eye so that she wonâ€™t need an operation later,â€ said her mother, Anice Kruger, inÂ Beeld.
Pippie sustained serious burns when a gel firelighter exploded in her fatherâ€™s hands on New Yearâ€™s Even 2011.
A muscle in her left eye collapsed and due to the pain during the incident, she gnawed off most of her bottom teeth.
But the new teeth, which are inserted like a mouth guard, need some getting used to and the spectacles are giving her headaches.
Pippie made headlines last year when she underwent a groundbreaking skin transplant procedure.
Pippie and her mother are currently living in Johannesburg to be close to doctors and physiotherapists, while her husband and son stay on their farm in Lephalale.
