Aches and Pains

I havent been blogging much lately cause I have been taking a lot of painkillers. My mouth is constantly hurting. The 4 top front teeth I had fixed are much better now but it seems that all that work has aggravated the rest of my mouth. I am not able to eat anything too hot or too cold or hard. Its really becoming frustrating. I’ll see if gets any better over the weekend and if not, I will call my dentist on tuesday.

My Doctor’s office called and my doctor wants to see me on tuesday. Didnt say why but I assume its about the M.R.I. I had last week. Cant see what else it would be. I wonder what the results are? I hope I dont need to have surgery yet again. I can tell you that I am sick and tired of doctors, hospitals, operations and just getting poked and prodded. I would love to be normal…lol…yeah, right. I would give anything to not have to take pills every day. Oh well, such is life!

On the home front…. Dippy has lost his dog again. He decided to go out for the day and left the poor dog on the patio with nothing to do. So doggy crapped every where and then found a hole in the fence to escape. He is out hunting for his dog. I hope that the dog runs away and finds a new home. Some where it will be taken care of better. He cant really go anywhere. the common area is all fenced in so most likely the dog is in someones home on the first floor. Dippy just has to go knock on doors.

Argifair this weekend. Might go check it out tomorrow.

Teeth Whitening

I have been whitening my teeth to get them as white as I can before I go in to get my front teeth covered with veneers. I dont want the dentist to color match them up to be yellowish. Gregg has researched whitening quite a bit. He has found that what the dentists use is very similar to the whitening kits you can buy at the drug store. We found one that is the closest to the one our dentist uses. Its called “Plus White 5 minute speed whitening gel“. It says to use it for 5 minutes each day but we use it for a full hour. We asked our dentist to make sure it wasnt going to do any damage and he told us it was fine.

Well, my top front teeth hurt. Actually just the one. It has a section that the enamel has worn off and is now very sensitive. The gel gets in there and it hurts. No big deal. I can suffer through it. I want my teeth to be white and match the veneers. I’m getting excited about my new teeth, but I’m also very scared. I have such a big fear of all that pain I have to go through. Mainly those needles. Did I tell you I hate needles?! This coming from a girl with tattoos.(LOL) Those are different needles. Those arent in my mouth. 😛

My Gold Crown

Well I saw the dentist yesterday. Yes I did finally have a golden shit. And before you go wondering if I found it, yes I did. I washed it, bleached it and took it with me. I told the dentist what happened and he says it happens to a lot of people. He took it and put it in the autoclave for 10 minutes to sterilize it. I was not really wanting to put it back in my mouth but I really had no choice. So yes, its back in my mouth. It cost 87.00 bucks to do it instead of getting a new one that would of cost 900.00 . So now I can brag about my shitty tooth.

I have also made an appointment to get my 4 front teeth done in June. Which I am happy about. The dentist said he can do everything in a 2-3 hour sitting. Front teeth and 3 fillings. I wont have to do sedation with an IV. I can do it with taking some pills to relax me. I hope so. I really dont want to feel anything. After all the work is done I have to go back a week later for the veneers to be put on. So for a week I will look weird since I cant where any temp teeth. I’m allergic to acrylic. No big deal, I’ll just stay home. And I like this dentist. He was very gentle and friendly.
