... and nothing but the tooth
Option b is preferable, but throws up further choices: a teeny denture, probably not worth it for one tooth; a bridge, which involves drilling into the two adjacent teeth, which seems rather invasive; (iii) an implant, which is going to cost upwards of £2,000 and is therefore definitely not going to happen.
The alternative, of course, is to leave a gap. The dentist has assured me this will be fine 'functionally': but will it make me look even stranger than I already do? Should I stick a piece of black tape over the offending tooth to see what a space would look like?
The one option I don't have is to do nothing, so a further appointment has been made for three weeks' time (three weeks!) to do whatever I have decided by then.
I hate getting old.
