Well I finally worked up the nerve to make a dental appointment after 10 years of not going. I have to say I’m a nervous wreck I could vomit just thinking about it. My mouth is kind of a mess and I’m really nervous about what’s going to happen. When I was 17 I had a door hit me in the face and it broke my front tooth in half and chipped the corner of the other one. I went to the dentist and he did a root canal on the half broken tooth and then bonded it because he didn’t want to do a full crown because my mouth wasn’t down growing yet . He bonded the corner of the other fron took the as well . I went back a few times over the years and that dentist never completed the root with a post or a crown . I had the bonding onto he teeth replaced twice and then got pregnant 3 times and each pregnancy made my teeth worse . So I became highly self conscious because my front teeth were discolored and chipping away . I became severely afraid to go to the dentist out of embarrassment because surely my teeth were going to be the worst they have ever seen. Fast forward to today my front tooth bonding cracked a few weeks ago and if I bite into something I know it’s going to break so I have been living on soup for 3 weeks praying it didn’t break . I finally decided yesterday that I cannot live like this anymore and decided to make the call . My appointment is in 2 days and I am seriously freaking . I have a few teeth on the top that are broken at the gum line and I’m sure they are going to think I do crack or something anyway wish me luck - just praying they can do something to fix them as I really don’t want to go the denture route . I just want to SMILE and take pictures with my children again.
