I discovered yesterday that I couldn't whistle with the wire on my front teeth.
But I can whistle now!!! This morning the dentist took off the wire and glue and I look normal again. The chipped tooth isn't too bad, you can't really tell. I will go back in a month for another visit to decide if I want to do anything else with my teeth. My teeth still need some healing time. I can't use them to bite or anything and they still feel "weird", but I'm happy for now. My husband is taking me on a date tomorrow night to celebrate. :)
So this whole thing cost me 2000 kroner ($500). Not bad in my opinion. The only bill I ever got was for the first emergency visit on Halloween, and the most expensive part of that fee was the $300 "after hours" fee. It was only $200 to do the actual work... x-rays, numbing medicine, little piece of ghetto wire...
Both of my two appointments afterwards were free and one even included an x-ray. I don't know if she was just being nice or if this is common, but I always thought dental work here was crazy expensive. I probably would have paid close $500 in the States even if I had dental insurance.
WHOA. Did I just say something nice about Denmark? :) I told you guys, I don't really hate it here..
