Apparently, it wasn't made very clear at my last visit - they weren't sure if #10 tooth would need a root canal, and they didn't want to crown it if a RC was needed. So, I'm really just here for a continuation of my first crown appointment. Boo.
So, they took off my temporary crowns - which broke when they did it - and laid me back.
|Numbed, so I look like a stroke patient|
|Such sexy teeth!|
Because we were working with lasers, they replaced my normal sunglasses with these bangin' Del Boca Vista, Phase 2 style glasses. Where's my golf cart?
|Hey, Morty! Let's go get an Early Bird Special at Bob Evans|
Once that was over, it was time to make in impression of my teeth and my bite. I was given a flat stick with a bunch of pink goo on it, which got shoved into my mouth, then smeared all over my face.
|I'm here to get crowns and chew bubble gum... oh, that's not bubble gum.|
|An even better shot of that wonderful facefull of goo|
Anyway, once the impression was made, they repeated the process with some blue goo. After the blue goo, we picked colors for my teeth - it was suggested that I whiten the rest of my teeth, but that is SO the least of my worries in the long haul, we stuck with matching what I've got now. My color is a mix of C2 and C3 (I know that means nothing to you).
Once colors were chosen, Cassie made a new set of temporary crowns for me (a much better set, too, than the first ones) and I was on my way back to work.
NOW, in three weeks, I'll have my for-real permanent crowns!
