Today I went to the dentist to fix my broken tooth. This is the same broken tooth that broke during my ninth month of pregnancy. So yeah, 19 months later and I am finally getting it fixed!!! My last dentist experience was AWFUL so I was completely nervous going in, but as soon as the dentist walked in the room, I was at peace. He is such a nice guy! He was confident that they could fix my broken tooth (along with some cavities). Ew. He pointed out that I still had all my teeth. My wisdom teeth hadn't been pulled. This led to the fact that my teeth on the bottom could become crowded and that if they did, he could give me Invisilign (or something like that) to fix the teeth on the bottom. He then went on to say that he could also fix the gap I have. The GAP! I feel like my gap is a bit of a Jen Powell trademark. Would I still be Jen without it? Would people recognize me? Would I be betraying myself? Every single one of my friends has discouraged me from EVER filling that gap. I think only one person in my whole life has ever made a rude remark about it. I got teased about a lot, but the gap was never tease worthy.
So with all that to say, I am SORT of pondering the idea of one day closing the gap. Will I regret it? Is it worth it? I am going to ask the dentist more about it on Friday when I have my broken tooth prepped. I have a feeling that I won't do it, but you never know. It sort of grosses me out to think of me without the gap. Besides, Maisie has a gap too. And at the rate we are going at, it looks like that may be the ONLY thing she gets from me! To close gap, or not to close gap. That is the question.
