my brother was playing baseball or something at least involving a bat earlier and knocked out one of his front teeth. he's 17 so he doesn't have any reserves. he also cant find the tooth. is there any chance of being able to get a fake tooth put in that doesnt look shitty? how much does something like that run? he's been pouty about it all day so i want to be able to tell him that we can fix it.

Maybe you should ask a dentist instead of a bunch of people on the internet?

Just a thought...

that was my thought when i first posted, but i figure i'd collect way more interesting stories about losing ones tooth from people on the internet.

i would think that if you asked, a dentist would be able to tell you a lot more interesting stories about teeth being lost than a bunch of people on the internet.

plus the dentist probably wouldn't be as much of a smartass as the internet people.

it should be fixable. I took a friend out mountain biking a few months ago. Within a half mile of the trailhead, he flew from his bike, face-first, completely negating the benefits of a helmet and giving a literal meaning to the term "ate it". The fall chipped his tooth, and by "chipped", I mean "broke it the fuck in half". We took him to the emergency room so they could numb his mouth, then he called his dentist. The dentist glued on a prosthetic or something and when i saw it a week later, you could barely tell it had ever been broken. If they can fix that, I don't see why they can't put in a fake tooth. tell your brother to george washington it up and get a wooden one.

note: my friend has really good dental coverage.

I have two fake front teeth.

And, thanks to them, a lisp.


Thats right, $6,000 for two teeth, a lisp, and 6 hours of misery in a dentist's chair. Fuck teeth.

well one of my friends front tooth is completely fake and i never noticed until it came up, he's 19 had it since he was like 16-17, he got punched so hard that the entirety of the tooth came out, he still won.

You can replace teeth, it's just really expensive.

Tell him to get a gold one.

That's why you have a lisp? I always assumed it was natural.

Also, how did you lose those front teeth?

Fell off my bike at my neighbor's house. Hit my head on his mailbox (4 stitches), face on the road (2 fake teeth), and then the bike gears ate up my leg (30 stitches). I was... 8?

Eh, dentists/oral surgeons can do pretty amazing stuff with teeth, if you have the money. My dad has a fake bottom tooth that you'd never be able to tell was fake, except for maybe being a shade lighter in color, and functions perfectly fine. My friend also had a chipped tooth but but it "filled in" somehow and looks great.

This kid I know lost his front teeth and has a retainer sort of thing that works pretty well.
