I Find Myself Moved to Poetical Expression

You can stomp on my balls,
You can burn down my condo,
But you'd best not eat soup
With that dental bondo.

Dental Damn


Bloody 'ell, Mate. Broke again last night.The dentist's office thinks it's the temporary prosthesis that they placed eight days ago. Drawing to follow.

Broken Temporary Crown  copy

Yup.  It's that tooth.  Dr Byun was able to put patch the gap with a UV-set polymer. Just like bondo.  I was in and out of the chair in about five minutes.  "That'll hold you until you get the permanent crown on July 7th," he told me.
On my way back to work, I stopped for lunch, as I was too freaked out to have any breakfast this morning.  3 spoons into my chicken fun soup, the patch fell out.  Perhaps you're not supposed to have hot liquids with this kind of patch.  Perhaps somebody could have told me that.

Dental FAIL

Here's what's broken out of my mouth this week.
