I've been rather tight lipped for the last month for I managed to break two of my front teeth falling off a curb in the dark. Yes, before some of you ask the question, I had been drinking alcohol but not in quantities that made falling flat on my face a certainty. The curb in question was much higher than normal and I think that my brain wrongly compensated for one that was a regular height. It's why I think I didn't break my fall without putting my hands out.
Emergency dentistry came to the rescue but one of the teeth that I broke already had a crown due to a mishap at a toga party when I was a student. Accident prone; Moi? As the dentist suspected the repair did not bond to the artificial surface.. It lasted less than forty eight hours. I had to wait a while for the next appointment. Apparently affronts to vanity do not class as dental emergencies even when your teenager is calling you an embarrassing hillbilly.
This replacement feels a lot more secure. I might even give apple eating a go. Thanks NHS dentistry. For the very reasonable sum of £20.60 per visit I'm delighted to be able to show teeth again when I smile.
