Evidently…

…I may have a future in the field of dentistry. Never mind that I can’t stand the sound of the drill, the smell of burning enamel, blood or needles – I have the magical ability to make temporary tooth cement bond permanently.

Last Thursday while innocently chewing a piece of gum I had a crown come off. Thankfully it was one that covers one of my implants* so it didn’t hurt, however it made chewing kind of difficult. So I decided I’d use the temp bond that I had from the last crown that came off to put it back on until I could get to the dentist to have it fixed. Today was the big day – I went in to have the crown taken off and put back on again and guess what? My dentist couldn’t get it off…there was pulling, twisting and I think a pick and crowbar were put into use at one point to no avail. Amazing. The last time I used this stuff the crown popped right off when I went it for the fix. I wonder if it reacted with the metal differently…who knows?

Glad you all appreciated the heads up on the STR colors – I’m happy to enable whenever I can! Stay tuned…there will be more fiber photos and a SIP picture coming up…and maybe some spinning if yer lucky ;o)

(*for those of you new to the blog, I have had extensive dental work done over the past two years – including two dental implants, lots of crowns and bridges. I’m all done and happy except for the temporary cement holding everything in which is slowly being replaced with permanent. You can see my first post about it here on my really really really old blog)
