Going to the Dentist...

Since standard medicine is so cheap here (ie. "I'm sick with a cold/flu, cure me"--result is a doctor's visit, possibly a shot, and medicine from the pharmacy..) I've decided to check out the dentist around here, and see what the cost is for...
  1. A cleaning
  2. Restoring one of my canines that I broke long ago: the bonding is wearing off
  3. Possibly whitening my teeth (I'm starting to see the result of my coffee drinking again!)

Wish me luck. I'll update with the result later!

Can you look into some veneers? Everyone’s getting them these days... especially on those reality shows that make people pretty!

Ps. Sprichst du Shwitzer-Deutch?

Chelsea said...

Comatose--yeah, I did check into it and it appears I can't have a veneer because of the prior bonding I have on my tooth. Hehe.. but I'm still dredging on to see what my possibilities are beyond sawing my tooth down to a pulp and putting a crown on it.

Ja, ein bisschen, aber ich die französische Sprache veil besser sprachen und schreiben, wenn ich die Zeit haben :) Und du außerdem die Shwitzer-Deutch sprechen?

Ya, I always loved that on the "Swan", when the doctors started drilling their teeth to look like corrugated cardboard.

Ich habe vier jahren in der Schweitz gewohnt als jugentlich, also darum kann ein beisschen Deutch, Shwitzerdeutch et tres pu Francais. I always cheeted in the latter class... just like my students!

Lol. Sounds like a blast. We should practice our German (ahem, I'm crappy at it..) and maybe our French sometime!
