I went for my six month dental check-up today and learned that my fillings are getting old. Ha! Like my fillings would stay in youthful condition while the rest of me ages. Actually, my dentist is pretty proactive and sensitive to my lack of dental insurance both. She is recommending a gradual plan of replacing old fillings that have started to crack. They don't bother me now, but if left to crack too much, they could crack tooth surface as well and that would mean crowns. What to do, what to do? I'm thinking it makes sense to spread the pain (monetary pain) out over the next couple of years. All this maintenance stuff just never goes away.
