the tooth chronicles

I had my bi-annual dental cleaning appointment this morning. All was well except I chipped a tooth at some point over the summer and recently it became sensitive to cold. I had a pretty good idea what that meant, but the dentist confirmed it this morning–I’m going to need another crown. Coincidentally, it’s the same tooth I had crowned this year, but on the other side. Ugh. Anyway, it doesn’t need to happen right away as it’s not bothering me that much. The previous tooth bothered me for a couple of years before I got it fixed, so we’ll see how this one goes. At least I know that expense is coming, so I’ll be able to put away some money for it before it happens.
