I've seen the second dentist. He was singing a sad song to me...
Basically, there isn't enough tooth to do the post, new crown on. He says "there's only a millimeter of good tooth there, and it's possible that he can do about $2,000 worth of dental work and that millimeter could break. Then all that work is down the tubes:/"
SO...his recommendation is to do an extraction, and then an implant. Big. Sad. Face:(
None of this sounds fun, and when did having teeth get so DANG expensive?!?
I mean...I can have a tooth...or take my entire family to Disney World! How can this be?!?
I can have a tooth...or a totally pimped out new Mac Book Pro!
I'm going to do the extraction next week...that's only $995. Only...is what the dentist said. In what world is $995 "only"???
Then I gotta wait four months for it to heal before I decide on the implant.
