18: 24 HOURS WITH TEETH

This will be a quickie. As I stated yesterday, these new teeth are the rough draft for my temps that I'll go home with. Temporary temporaries if you will. I'm so glad that Dr. Prada does things this way. I get to wear these for a few days, see what I like and dislike about them and then communicate my thoughts to him. Then the new temps will be made and I'll head home with those for 6 months or so in which I'll return to this beautiful country and receive my permanent porcelain teeth.

This is what I'm thinking so far...I think the teeth should be a tad longer. Although I don't believe there is a lot of room to play with in that direction. When my mouth is relaxed and slightly open, you really can't see my uppers. So maybe a tad longer. Also when I look at the photos I've taken of these teeth, it looks as if the two front teeth could be a bit more narrow. But when I look in the mirror they seem fine and not too wide at all. This might be silly but I wonder if that has anything to do with a photo not being 3D, as our vision is, and thus looking flatter or wider in the photo?

The canine teeth, the pointy ones, might be a bit too bulky as well. 

I'll bring all this up with Dr. Prada and get his thoughts. 

That is all for now. Happy Saturday!!
