I'll be visiting other blogs soon.

I was 2 1/2 hours in the dental chair two days ago and 2 hours getting things updated/signed at the lawyer's today, so I'm waaay behind visiting. Need to get my energy reserves back up and I'll be around visiting again!

Oh, am posting my before and after teeth thing. After three years of filling cavities, root canals, three extractions, etc. we finally got to my front teeth where a cap had gone bad, showing the metal around it and two teeth that had been bonded when I had huge cavities there in the 80's had turned ORANGE. I was so used to covering my mouth when I smiled, it's hard not to do that now. At any rate, the visit was getting a special type of veneer bonded over those(not cemented or glued) and the veneers were made from impressions so they could be made to give the teeth an even look again instead of the capped on drifted back. I wore braces when young and had beautiful teeth so it feels good to have them back again.

Looks good! Your dentist should use your pics for advertising!

Pris said...

ohhhh..not public advertising lol..Actually she keeps a book of before and after pics of people she does cosmetic work on and it's encouraging. When I first went in with all the bad cavities, etc and it all seemed endless three years ago, she showed me a picture of a woman with a few teeth hanging in here and there..was dental phobic...finally came in and became relaxed with her. In the after photo she was like a different person!

Looks great now - camera angle in the 'before' makes for quite a contrast! Hope your energy's coming back soon. Take care.

Those new choppers look fab!

Pris said...

Thanks, both of you. You should see the shots the dentist took. She put something in my mouth to hold the lips up and took photos. I've made her swear on all that's holy to her never to sell those to a tabloid lol

Energy slowly returning, thanks!

Wow,your dentist has certainly excelled him/herself Pris with a professional looking job and superb finish. All that needs to be added is the animated silver ''twinkle''. I'm sure there is someone out there who would oblige. Or maybe not? Ha.
Looking good!

Pris said...

Yup, the superstar:-)

Ellen, Mikey would add the twinkle if I asked, but I think I'll just fade slowly into the background again. Sigh.

Very nice, Miss Pris...I know you put this post up a while back, but just I don't like to eat and run, I don't like to read and remain unheard...you have a good dentist there, I'd say he/she is a keeper
