Let me first tell you why my smile is not perfect. 16 years ago I fell and broke my front teeth. The one of them got the nerve exposed, so I went through the root canal procedure to get a stift and a plast crone on it. The other one just got fixed with the plast. I got 5 years' guarantee on them. The teeth looked amazing and I was so happy at that time! After only a year or so one of them started to get darked than the other - probably because of the dead tooth underneath. I was devastated but didn't have the money to fix it. So time went on and I have been unhappy with the way they looked. Small pieces of plast would fall off and the teeth would get dark spots on the surfaces. Not perfect at all. So now I finally decided to fix it.
1st appointment: On the 27th of May I came to the dentists office and had a talk with him about it. He said, it was my decision but as soon as he starts to shave the tooth off, that's a point of no return. So I agreed and he started the aenestesia. OMG, it hurt quite a lot on the back side of the teeth :O I'm usually not sensitive to that kind, but this one was painful. Then he made a print of the teeth and then he started shaving the tooth and the old crone down. I started crying - it was so emotional for me to say good bye to the tooth which was still alive. I have hated both my front teeth from my childhood because they slightly looked at each other (misaligned), so I have dreamt of aligned teeth all the time. So when the dentist started the process I was very emotional: scared and happy at the same time. In the process he found out, that I had cavities in both the dead and the alive teeth. So he had to fix that first. Then he made one more print of the stumps to make a temporary set of teeth for me. Then he put those on and I was free to go. It's a one-piece and too white - I'm not happy with the look.
The aenestesia took long to go away. Even my nose was numb! Today I just have pain all the places of injections.
As you probably see in the picture, my gums don't align on the top, so he let me go and come back on the 10th of June to make a print for my porcelain crowns.
