This And That
I see nobody read or commented on my fish success post.
Fine. Go on and keep killing fish. Don't do 4 or 5 things to all but guarantee fish success.
But enough about that.
Last week I had a mystery tooth chip event. I was innocently hanging out at home, watching TV. Out of nowhere I noticed a small, rock like substance in my mouth. Not thinking about it too hard I just exhaled hard and sent the object flying.
But then I started to think about it. What the hell was that? Where did it come from?
And then I noticed the pit on one of my front teeth. Not very big, but I could feel it with my tongue. And it had somewhat sharp edges. No pain, but once I knew about it it drove me batty.
I could not leave it alone.
So I contact the dentist office and ask what can be done about it. This resulted in an appointment.
Now really it was not a big deal. Just a small little pit. Hell the sharp edges had even become smooth edges. But still, it was bugging me.
The dentist looked at it, and determined that it was not a big deal. It was not going to be subject to decay (which was what I was concerned about) because the chip was in the "self cleaning area".
Anyhow I made myself at home in the chair, the drill was busted out, there was some minor drilling that did not bother me at all. The drilling took about 30 seconds (if that).
OK so now I am up to about 1 minute in the office.
Next was the applying of the magical tooth putty.
And then there was the special UV light to harden the magical tooth putty.
But apparently this was just the primer coat. For there was some more tooth putty stuff applied. And then it was formed and pressed into place with some sort of blunt metal object.
Then more light treatment to harden the stuff.
Then a little more drilling, to remove the excess.
I was out of the place about 30 minutes after I walked in. So including waiting time and my possible tardiness by a few minutes to the appointment, it was about 15 minutes I was in the back room.
This is about twice as much as a half hour in the champagne room at a strip club would cost. And I did not even get a dance.
But I do not have this pit on my front tooth that drives me crazy.
