i went to the dentist again and instead of three more visits he finished it all today. wowsers. i'm impressed. it's still a bit numb and aches a bit but it's all ok. he took ages. oh well, it's over now. he wasn't even concerned that a big bit broke off. said it was not an issue. i have to go back and get it polished but i'll wait until i get back from holidays. big relief for me, i was a bit worried about the broken bit, thought he'd have to take it out. i'm having the kids tonight and tomorrow night. i'm looking forward to the break. enjoy yours.
