The veneer split on my tooth yesterday evening -- just after the clinic had closed, of course. It's the zombie tooth, and the sealant's intact, so there's no pain -- but it looks a bit whrrr. I'm getting the bodge put in tomorrow, at which point I'll find out how much more b******ed this'll leave my finances. Does your dentist scare you? Only when she shows me the bill. Heh. Visual below, may not go well with lunch.

What were you saving up for? Let me guess...
  • a life sized model of a pterodactyl made of traslucent pink plastic?
  • solid gold ceiling tiles?
  • a bouncy gazebo?
  • an extension for a permanent Barbie bowling skittle alley?
  • a new bionic tooth that shoots poisoned darts?

pink? I don't think so!!!
Guess again

(well, OK a couple of those are sort of right, but more on the long-term list than the oh-in-a-month-or-so I might be able to afford! list)

Sympathy...
It really sucks having to spend money on stuff like dental work.
Must say your teeth look generally stunning,though... Most unlike my increasingly-scarce and wonky old piano keys.
My dentist scares me very much, at all times. Weird.

Re: Sympathy...
I remember being really resentful about having to use all my birthday money on dentists when I was a student. There's no such thing as nationally funded dentistry in New Zealand, although people tell me it's getting that way here now too.

I've not been for a few years now. I really should see about getting myself a dentist in the UK.

Sympathy wincing here.

The dentist only scares me when I have to see him.

Or think of him.

Or anything related to dentistry in general.

Other than that, not at all.

my childhood dentist was an evil monster.

I have a real dreamboat now. He's all tall, dark and handsome, super professional and really sweet.

A related article - though I probably wouldn't recommend this dental solution...

I think I'll stick with Ruth Bird, Dental Surgeon. She's lovely.

fear my sneer
I was chewing a hang-nail and the damn veneer cracked all the way across. Which is NOT what I'd call heavy use.
