when you go to the dentist to get drilled, do you get shots, the gas, or both?
I am such a baby, I get the gas then after I am relaxed I get the shots, while I am listening to my walkman because I can't stand the noise of the drill

Yay!!! I love improving my teeth!!!!

It doesn't hurt, they essentially bond it to your tooth... but don't recall how (it's been a LONG time)...

Just make SURE you like the color and don't be afraid to say "no, that is not good enough" they have to do it until it's right. I have ONE veneer as one of my MAIN front teeth and I sent it back 3 times... but now it's just fine and has been in place for... 15 years or so!

I can't wait to see them! You're gonna look even more amazing chickster!!!

Never used to get numbed at all...But now......Hell I love it.....The only drag is not being able to control my lips......I was nervous about the needle at first but now I just close my eyes....The doc has this technique.....He kinda gently shakes my whole head lightly just to throw the mind off the initail prick of the needle after that he could drill straight to the brain.......

Had mine done about 8 years ago. Still holding up fine!

I was only there an hour at the most! But then again, I'm not a nice to look at!
Maybe they just wanted me out of there!
They don't put you under for that either. So if he tries to put you under, maybe that's why you're there so long!!!! "wink, wink"

I have two front lower teeth with veneers on them. The only problem I have had with them is both teeth have had root canals and as the tooth dies off a slight darkness has appeared through the tooth. Other than that they have been fine.

Good luck!!!!!

I had a root canal about 13-14 years ago and it too turned darker. Last spring I had it internally bleached and it really lightened it up. Also had bleaching trays made, but haven't used them yet.

Congrats FitChick - you luckout! I want one of those super star glam smiles sooooooo bad - but first things first. I have to prioritize and take care of some needed work in my mouth - then off to get the veneers. Probably wont be for 2 more years till I get those - I need all sorts of other stuff fixed first - but I'm starting. That was one of my resolutions.

And - I'm a total chicken $hit. Have to get the gas, then the shots - what's funny is I lay there in the chair and f'ing CRACK UP out loud cuz that gas makes me giggly


Focker - just don't overdue it on the bleaching trays - that bleach tore up my gums so bad unfortunately

That is soo great! I love great teeth. More people should pay attention to their teeth ( and eyebrows...2 of my pet peeves!)

Before our wedding, we both had our teeth professionally bleached with Brite Smile...turned out great!

Well I was in the chair for 4 hours

I had the gas and about 6 shots, my mouth is sore from the shots. I have temps in right now I get the veneers in 3 weeks

The worst part about it was the impressions, yuck!!
I had to keep it in my mouth for 4 minutes, was gagging the whole time. After everything was done I couldn't feel my upper lip, or nose for about 2 hours

Oh well in 3 weeks I will be a happy camper

That must be a record (keeping something in your mouth that long) specialy with the talk around the board about goose being a minute man.

Just what kind of dentist do you go to?!?!
Does Goose know about this?


Whenever I get fillings, I only use the gas. I HATE the novocaine numbness feeling. I'd rather just go through the couple minutes of pain.
