I did break one of the teeth that is getting a crown on Monday. I got in at the dentist at 10am with the partner of my normal dentist.
She added some amalgam, shaped it up, and sent me on my way.... No charge. I was ready to cry.
I also only missed 1.25 hrs at work.
Since I'm not supposed to be chewing hard things, I've been crushing my chewable vitamins. This is my work mortar and pestle.
Cute, huh? It's a measuring spoon and the end of a steak knife. Necessity is the mother of invention.
