Well... yesterday the inevitable finally happened: It just popped off. Fortunately, the entire filling didn't come out... just the half that was attached to the overhang. So, 1 emergency dentist appt. later, all is fixed, my lower jaw is numb, and I'm $90 poorer (thank god for insurance).
I really liked the dentist office though... digital EVERYTHING, including x-rays, which I'd never seen before. "buzz" and it's on the computer screen, and then immediately transferred to the TV in front of your chair. Fuckin awesome. :)
It's good to see that 1980's technology is finally making it to where it needs to be. :P
