I thought it would just needed patching up but as is often the case with my bloomin' teeth, it's gonna be expensive.
When my filling fell out, part of my tooth was damaged so now I need a crown, which is going to set me back £550...yes, ouch!
But that's not all. The x-ray showed that it was possible that I may need root canal treatment and I won't know if it's needed until the dentist opens up the tooth properly prior to fitting the crown. Root canal treatment will be another yep, £550!
Maybe I should just swallow all £1100 and be grateful I don't need dentures (yet!)
So much for saving for my next holiday - time to budget again methinks!
edit - since drafting this post, I didn't need the root canal treatment but I'm still £550 down! And down in the mouth!
