Badass Posturing at the Dentist Office
A filling fell out and I didn't even notice. The dentist told me the other day right before pointing to the hole in my tooth while I watched in a mirror. I was glad she showed me since I think that dentists are the new car mechanics in terms of selling you fixes you don't really need. You can actually get two kinds of fillings: The plastic white ones that look natural, or the metal ones that people can see when you laugh. The metal ones last about six or seven years and the plastic last a couple years less than that. I always request the plastic ones and then tell the dentist that I can go with the shorter span ones because I probably won't live that long since I'm such a badass. They don't seem to buy it, but at least it gets me on the laughing gas a little bit more often.
