|A surprise crown|
Such was the case yesterday.
About three weeks ago, a tiny little "chip" came off a tooth, and it didn't hurt (and still didn't today) or bother me, but food kept getting caught in between that and a tooth next to it. So, I went to the dentist!
After an xray or two, my dentist (who is great and painless, and someone I've been going to for 14 years) told me that it was part of a filling that chipped out. Then came the rest of the story. "It's a pretty large filling," she said. I told her "they're all large fillings - so what does that mean?"

I walked out with a temporary crown, and realized that my christmas present to myself is a costly tooth crown.
