Elizabeth’s Tooth Capped

Elizabeth got her tooth capped, after knocking out the corner of her front tooth over the weekend. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a horror story. The dentist at the hospital in Prague was barely competent. She was barefoot!. Yes, barefoot. And after she put the putty in and finished off, I had to encourage her to FILE the tooth down to the same size as the other tooth. She filed it down a bit, but it was a big bulky lump of white clay on her tooth, and when I got home, my wife was not too happy with the job. Nor was the hospital, apparently. They took photos of the lump and another dentist (this one had shoes on) took it off and started again to make a perfectly matched tooth cap – which she has right now. Didn’t cost too much. Fantastic to have her tooth back to normal.
