Have You Ever Had Cosmetic Dentistry?

Hi Neighbors!

My question is, have you ever had cosmetic dentistry?  I did, several years ago.  Back when my husband was in the military we were at the base where they first tested veneers.  I was chosen to be one of their guinea pigs!  So, not only did I have the pleasure of visiting a dentist several times, they also took pictures throughout the whole procedure!  Before, during and after! So somewhere in some military dentistry manual or records are pictures of my teeth!

They did a very good job by the way. All four front teeth received veneers, that lasted over 15 years!  Not bad!  They looked great and I was able to eat everything like normal.  Until that awful day 15 years later.  One of my veneers fell out.  We were traveling headed to a meeting, and of course I was not able to just drop in to a dentist and say, "Hey, could you fix this?".  So, what do you do in this situation?  Super Glue to the rescue!  No I do not recommend this to anyone, it is just the choice we made.  My husband helped me, so it wouldn't end up glued on crooked and sideways!  Or glued to my lip or something.  I can see the emergency room visit now!   "Could you please help me remove this tooth from my lip?"  I did have to be careful of what I bit into, and of course was very self conscious when I smiled.  I mean what if it came loose?  All worked well, and the veneer was eventually replaced.  I have now, 20 years after they were originally put on, had all four replaced, but they did hold up for a very long time.

I do have to share a funny dental story with you though.  Because my husband used to be a dental tech at one time, he always helped the children when their tooth was so loose that it was catching sideways, or became so uncomfortable, but just hadn't completely come loose yet.  He would just assist it out.  Well, when our youngest started having teeth fall out, she started coming to me and saying, I have a loose tooth, but don't tell dad!  She will wiggle, poke, and play with the tooth, just so dad can't.  Somehow she thinks it hurts more when he does it, than when she does!  So finally after days of playing with the tooth, she will walk out and proudly display the tooth to dad!  She makes me laugh over this because she tries to keep it a secret just between the two of us!

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for cosmetic dentistry Nashville and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
