So... last night, I was wondering if the dentist was trying to gyp me, because my tooth wasn't really bothering me. Then this morning, it was kind of dully achy. I finally broke out some wine because wine has a lovely way of deadening dental pain.
I was thinking about how much this fucking crown replacement is going to cost, even if my dental insurance doesn't give me any trouble since this crown I have is barely five years old. $533... after insurance, if insurance decides to pay... It sucks. And that's only if I don't end up needing a fucking root canal.
My tooth doesn't hurt that much. It's more annoying than anything else. A little wine covers up the discomfort quite nicely, which probably means it's a good thing I'm taking action now. But of all the shitty times for a crown to go bad... Hopefully, all will be better by November 10. That's when we're outta here on vacation.
