I believe in saving money, but there are just certain places you can not and should not go cheap; one of those places is your teeth! Through the course of my life I have had notoriously soft teeth. I could look at a piece of candy and get a cavity. I went to the dentist, but being that my health insurance was not that great it was usually a dental "hook-up". Not a good idea. Years past and many "hook-ups" or cost-effective dentists later and I was paying the price...full price. Bridges, root-canals, implants, on-lays, overlays, and fillings. The works! You have never known pain unless you had a toothache! OUCH!!!!!!!! Finally, enough was enough. I looked for the absolute best dentist that I could find! I didn't care how much he cost, I just wanted my mouth perfect and I didn't want it to hurt again...EVER!
REJOICE! I found one of the best dentists in the country who had a specific fellowship, was a cosmetic specialist and held other special certifications that only a few in the world had. His office was state of the art and his prices were about 20-30% more than a regular dentist. I didn't care, he was perfect. He pimped my mouth out and was worth every single dollar I paid him. I say he pimped my mouth out (you know like they do the cars) because it cost me a small car to get everything fixed. But it was worth it and I would do it again. He is now my regular dentist and I tell him each time I see him if he weren't married I would marry him.
It's time for me to let him tune these babies up and give them a good waxing though. I'm going to get them whitened in another few months. I can't wait. Hey, I've already paid the price I may as well keep them pretty right?
Does anyone else have any dental horror stories or am I the only lucky one?
