Tooth Fairy

I love going to the dentist. I am like the Golden Child of teeth. Never had a cavity. Braces...yes- but who hasn't? I have an implant. A cuspid (aka canine tooth). My new dentist told me that using an implant for one of the 4 cuspids is risky, they're like the pillar stones of the teeth.

I opened wide and he literally "ohhhed and awwwed." He complimented his colleague who performed this risky operation (you go Dr. Harris out in Cave Creek AZ). He smiled with delight when he saw the matching veneer on the opposite canine- "very symmetrical."
I basked in the glow of admiration for the rest of the day. Until I realized that I never got my free toothbrush. What gives?
