Oh I Sure Hope

Hello my lovely friends. I am so excited, nervous, worried, just all kinds of emotions right now. Tomorrow is my big dentist appointment. My teeth are there just waiting for me to come in and try them in and to see what they look like in the permanent form. A week and a half ago I went in to try in wax blocks that were made from my impressions. They fit nice and snug and only had to have one spot adjusted. Then since they guy who actually makes the dentures was at the office he set in my top 6 teeth that I picked out (size, shape, and color). This process is usually done somewhere else and the whole set of teeth is set in the wax for a wax try-in. The denture maker was so sure of the fit and bite he said he could set the top 6 and once they were right, he could go from there. Him doing this in office like that took an appointment off my visits.

The first try-in with these top six teeth...oh boy..I looked like Mr. Ed. They were too long and too far forward. The color and shape was perfect but the way they were set in the wax was horrible. The denture maker (dm) said hold on this is an easy fix. He took them back and set the teeth the way they should be. It looked wonderful! Of course, it looked weird to me because I have been without teeth for a couple months and I had some really bad broken front teeth before extractions so they looked good but strange to me.

Now, I am so nervous, worried, scared because I get to see the final product tomorrow. I am doubting if taking out that extra wax try-in appointment was a good idea, I am so scared I"m going to look foolish, have a bad over-bite, just something bad is going to happen. On top of all of that, there is a snow storm coming in tonight. We are supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. My appointment is at 11 am. I have an hour or so drive to my dentists office (if they will even be open). I dunno if the kids are going to be in school or have a delay or what. If they have a delay, they will have to be in school by 11. I can't be in two places at once..UGH!!!

I know I worry about so much all the time. I know I need to calm down. I just want a beautiful smile. I want to feel better about myself. I want it all to be ok and fit properly.

This is the color chart you pick the color of your teeth off of..I chose b1!
That is all for today. Please pray that I can get there tomorrow and everything be ok! Thank you all for reading and until next time, Be Blessed.
