Dental Stuff - Veneers / Implants / Crowns

Recommended Posts

Alyssa ~ I also have veneers - let me count them lol....hey, I have 8 too! On the top. Anyways, mine were done poorly. They're supposed to last 10-15 years but mine started to "leak" after about 5-7 years. One of my veneers cracked big time (like half the tooth is gone!) over a year ago so there is worry of decay with that tooth. Luckily it's the one furthest to the left so you don't see it when I smile.

 

I have sooo much dental work to be done. I began with having my wisdom teeth removed. Not sure if you were around much during all that but it was HELL. I got a bad infection and am just now (nearly a YEAR later!!!) getting over residing issues from that.

 

Anyways, definitely be careful and make sure you get a good dentist. If you can find one, a homeopathic dentist is supposedly the way to go. Apparently all these metals they put in our mouths can really mess us up, and "Natural Dentists" are supposed to use different materials. There is one located about 3 hours from me. Not sure if I'm going to go that route or not.

 

Now that I'm finally getting over the wisdom teeth removal I can't wait to get my veneers redone and have my teeth look movie star pretty again wink.gif I'm hoping to get them done by the wedding, after I graduate so hopefully late this year/early next.

 

Good luck and if there's anything else I can help you with just let me know! :)

Aww Alyssa I'm so sorry you are having all these dental problems. I hope your getting anesthesia so you won't feel any of this. I'm sure everything will be okay and I have heard that a root canal is worse so if you survived that, you'll def survive this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no pain for you.

girls, i just got back from the dentist - they called me and had a last minute schedule change and they fit me in at 10:30Am this morning instead of my planned Thursday appointment.

 

So, although my whole face is still numb, it is wearing off and the pain is kicking in - OUCH. he wrote me Anaprox, Amoxicillin and something else. I also picked up a bottle of Chardonnay (Dr. and Pharmacist both said 1 or 2 glasses would be cool). i look like a major crack whore b/c there are no teeth over the implants as they are making them and i have to go back tomoorw at 4pm. My mom made me a homemade chix soup and is dropping that off soon but otherwise i will be on here stalking you guys for distraction wink.gif

Oh that stinks, Alyssa - hope you're feeling better soon!

 

 

This might be a stupid question, but are the posts for the implants super visible? I always have these visions of when someone gets old and loses teeth that they'll just have this big ol' post stickin up out of their gums.

No but even still...what if you lose all your teeth and then all you have is this one implant left there LOL

 

Totally dumb, I know, but I'd be so afraid of that happening.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
