  • How is that an emergency?

    I would consider the tooth I had to have extracted because of severe decay caused by CONSTANT illness while pregnant, that turned into a systemic infection to be an emergency.
    Perhaps get a good toothbrush or some whitener?

  • Well, what is your area?

    As far as donating veneers.... are you serious? They're CRAZY expensive plus need to be replaced in about 10 years. People have cavities, abscesses, missing teeth, broken dentures, etc. Unless you're a child they'll donate NOTHING. Especially cosmetic, you're lucky if you can get a break on life threatening dental issues

    $400 in Mexico is like $2000 here..... that's why there's so many people flocking to Mexico for dental work.

  • Contact your county health dept and see if they can recommend a low cost or free clinic. SOme of them will only see true emergencies, like treating an abcess or pulling a broken tooth. I don't think they will consider veneers an emergency. Some dental schools can do cleanings very cheap because they are students doing the work.

  • 12 cavities....... no insurance? Are u paying cash? If u want ugly truth you'll likely be getting some/all of those teeth pulled. 12 fillings is a loooooooooot for a free/sliding scale clinic to take on. In the meantime you should get to a medical Dr. asap and get on antibiotics to buy yourself some time

  • Wth? Not an emergency. I was thinking this would be about someone's poor dc getting their teeth knocked out or something!
