Because I'm a Queen...


I get to wear a crown.

It's gold even!

Unfortunately, you, or me for that matter, won't be able to see it because it's going to reside over one of my six year molars.

Sigh.

I honestly felt a little embarassed by my failure with my molar.

Sure, I've had some cavities, but not in several years and never had a crown before.

Now, in less than six months, this one tooth cracked in three places and a piece of it is missing! (That missing portion is its own disturbing problem that my digestive system doesn't want to think about.)

When my dentist was looking in my tooth everything seemed good until I heard him say the words crack and molar.

Then, they have such incredible, (disgusting, but incredible) technology that allowed me to see my tooth blown up to about 40 times its normal size in all its broken down glory. I almost threw up in my mouth when I looked at the picture, but as you know, all that acid from throw up is not so good for your teeth either, so I kept it down.

Oh well, I guess a little mouth bling will make me oh so fashionable.

You're lucky they can restore it with just a crown! I had a crown go bad, and now they have to pull the dead tooth and place an implant, yuck! Then in a few months I have to go back and have them put a crown on the implant. Awesome.

Good luck with your bling!

Nice! Way to put a positive spin on that one. I am sorry. Maybe you can get a sweet throne and cape out of it too, and order people around our something. Make it the best queen experience possible. I hope it goes well. I don't like the whole dental thing in general. I am worse than my kids!

It costs about as much as a real crown too!

I am very sorry! I've been pretty lucky so far, but I have one filling that keeps falling out, and if it does it one more time, I'm pretty sure a crown is going to have to be put in.

You'll be happy that it is a gold crown, though. Speaking as someone who has *ahem* more than one crown in my mouth, gold is the way to go.

oh, man! what a drag. you're actually the 2nd person to bring up major tooth issues in the last couple days. my sis-in-law just had a root canal on mon.

...all this talk is making me nervous for my next dentist appt in a few weeks, esp b/c i have a problem tooth from when i was 11 that has been bothering me.

Just think of it this way, a little extra gold will increase your overall value. This should be a self-worth booster.

It's a good time to invest in gold. And now you can refer to your teeth as your "grill". :)
