Grandma-ma gets a crown

Yes, Grandma-ma gets a crown.  It's NOT a queens crown like this one.

It's not a Princess runway crown like this one either. This is a pretty crown, I think.

Now this is crown that grandma-ma would like to wear. 
Grandma-ma loves the sea and sea shells. 
But no, this is not the crown that grandma-ma received.

  Grandma-ma received a crown, but it was a crown for her tooth.  A crown for a tooth you ask.  Yes, when you damage a tooth or old fillings begin to expand and crack the natural tooth, you must put a "crown" over it.  That is the crown that grandma-ma got last week.

Grandma-ma's back molar cracked and a small piece of tooth fell out.  It didn't hurt, but it was sharp against my tongue.  I had to go see a dentist who repaired grandma-ma's broken tooth and he will put a new crown on it. The crown will protect the rest of the tooth and keep it from developing cavities.  Did it hurt to put a crown on? That is a very good question. It did not.  When you go to the dentist to have a crown put on your tooth, the dentist will numb the side of your mouth so you don't feel anything while they work on your mouth.  They were very gentle and took good care of grandma-ma tooth.  Now she has a new crown.  It is not a princess crown or a crown like a queen wears, but it is a very important crown to have.  Have a wonderful day my raviolis and remember to always brush your teeth.  Grandma-ma loves you.

Wow! I like the way you've shared the story about Grandma's dental crown treatment. I remember my grandmother, Glenda, during the time she got dental crown in the office of one of the best Columbia dentists last year. She was hesitant for a dental crown treatment at first because her teeth really hurt, but after thorough research and asking valuable opinion from friends, she decided to give a try. Indeed, having a dental crown for one's teeth is just simple and painless. With that, she was very grateful to the Columbia dentist that saved her teeth from cavity through dental crowns.

Thanks for sharing, Sea Witch! I really enjoyed reading your post.
