So it's the beginning of my birthday month! I was hoping to plan a small trip to celebrate but guess what? Dental drama strikes again! Remember the tooth I had surgically removed in January? Now it's time to have the empty spot filled with a porcelain bridge. They're going to attach it to the crown that the tooth behind it needs, and they have to crown one extra tooth for added strength. My out of pocket deposit for all this work will be $800....the week before my birthday. Damn it.
There goes the trip I had hoped to take! But at least I'll be able to smile comfortably again....I've been self conscious about the empty space behind my right eye tooth and have tried not to smile too big for fear of looking like a jack o lantern. Everyone says it's not noticeable but I feel like it's glaringly obvious. So at least my smile will be fixed for my birthday.
Happy March, everyone. Did it come in like a lamb or a lion for you?
