At least I've still got my personality...

So, I'm eating some pizza tonite when I feel a hard lil chunk of something after I took a bite, hoping it's burnt crust but knowing it's not..

I chipped off half of my fucking tooth...fuck. And guess what? no insurance...fuck...

it sucks, it's noticable when I smile...so, yay insecurity...

I guess I'm going to see my mom's dentist on Monday (I have to work all weekend and desperatly need the money) to see if I can't work something out.

yay root canals and/or crowns...fun times...really...

Ouch!

Well, the dental insurance thing isn't the end of the world. Most dental policies only cover basic cleanings and such anyways. Plus, you generally aren't discounted when you have insurance... the cost is the same as if you had paid out-of-pocket. This is why a lot of employers don't offer dental plans as part of their benefits. Hell, even most insurance companies don't offer their employees dental benefits.

And I wouldn't worry about your smile... most of us are too busy staring at your rack to notice. :P

teh suck. Lio is right about the insurance thing...most dental plans wont cover much if any of the costs of crowns and such. Most dentists will let you set up a payment plan.

The best cure for tooth pain? Whiskey!

That's dreadful! I hope it works out with the dentist (my least favorite place). . .
