Hmm. This tooth Bondo really interests me, will check Walmart. Thanks, Jkath!

I'd thought about trying an emery board or one of my Dremel attachments (minus the Dremel) to file down the razor-sharp edge of the leftover filling. DH was saying how I'd probably need a cap, but I just don't have time for that next week.
Oh no! I hope that Bondo stuff works for you. Just thinking about filing it smooth makes my teeth hurt.

There is something to be said about buying in bulk as to name brands. You run the risk of getting those little pieces of shell in bulk bins. Name brands have the machinery to blow out these shell peices. But I still buy in bulk.

Thanks Taxy. I used some marine grade filler to patch up our shower after the cleaning lady put a hole in the bottom of the shower by dropping something heavy. I'm gonna look up the ingredients and see if it's food/tooth safe.

These were in a sealed package, Addie. I'd portioned some out, and had some in a ziplock in the fridge for snacking. They're incredibly clean, I've never had pieces of shell. I took out about 12 nuts. The shell pieces were apparently stuck on one almond kernal.

Me too. I also have various colors of wood putty. Tooth's in the back, so no one will see it.

Just looked down the basement, can't find the aqua putty stuff. Trip to Walmart/Walgreen's tomorrow.

Dawg, I have used that "temporary tooth filler". It works. The one I have is Temparin by DenTek. The ingredients are calcium sulphate, paraffin, zinc oxide powder, potassium aluminum, aluminum sulphate, aluminum phosphate, Eugenol and menthol. It should be available at any drug store. (Hope you aren't allergic to "aluminum" ;) ). Good luck!

Hazel nuts are like that. Almost impossible to remove all of the shell and certainly the skins.

Good luck with your tooth. Mine are sitting in water in the bathroom in case you might want to temporarily borrow them. All you friends have been so helpful with offers, I didn't want to feel left out.

You guys are the best! Got the tooth Bondo (DenTek, that Bunny recommended), rolled it into a ball, and stuck it in the hole. My shredded tongue and I both thank you! Will call the dentist Monday to see if he can get me in very soon.
