Does this make me a Queen?

I'm getting a crown today, in about an hour. I've already had done what I hope to be the BAD part which were the Root Canals. Those weren't bad. So I'm sort of nervous about Ye Old Crown. I don't really know how they do it. I confess I didn't ask - I didn't really WANT to know. But now I wish I did. I'm only doing one crown right now. I need two, one on each side. But I'm hoping that I can get this one done and then in a couple of months do the other one. At least with one done I can chew on one side without worrying about breaking off what is left of the tooth from the root canal procedure.
I hate dental work. I just hate it.
The thing that makes me nervous is that she said she has to do a "gingivectomy" as well because the gum grew partially over where she has to attach the crown.
Oh hell....she's going to CUT ME. She has to remove park of the gum.....and not by magic I bet.
It's going to be a lovely day I am sure.
Pity all you fools who work for me, I do.

Luckily you will most likely be getting some good drugs.

It seems that Mr.T and Yoda had a child and I married her. You should hear her talk dirty, "Give it to me, you will, Sucka."

I hate going to the dentist. I hope you make it throught he torture! Do you have to have the crown? I had a root canal about 10 years ago & haven't had a crown yet (do I need to get one?).

You are supposed to get a crown as soon as possible after your root canal procedure as it weakens the tooth.
I too have a root canal that is crownless for about 9 years.....
