This morning I'm going back to the dentist to get another old-style filling removed (you know, the chunky dark mercury kind) and in it's place, one of these new fangled WHITE fillings.
I've already had one done a couple of weeks ago and really need about 2-3 fixed up a.s.a.p. As I'm getting bigger and more pregnant, it's hard to lay flat on my back for an hour straight, so I'm going to see how this one goes today then decide if one more can be squeezed in this year.
It's such a horrible and expensive thing to do. We all let it slide yet teeth are so important. I don't enjoy it one bit and have always had horrible teeth that require something done to them at every visit. The dentist I go to now even makes me wear a dental dam - if you have never experienced this, it's a sort of Hannibal Lector meets prostitute style moment! (Aren't they the only ones using dams in mouths???).
I was given some sort of bad 1970's medicine as a child (I think for German Measles??) so a few of my teeth went brown and I remember a few kids having this. Fortunately, most were baby teeth but my 2 front teeth were affected and have veneers covering the yuckiness.
I just want the morning to be over...
