Broken Tooth Closeup

As a kid, I hated going to the dentist. The dentist chair was where I received all sorts of bad news, and where I would spend most of my formative days propped open and drilled into. Yet after all those years, the fear still sits beside me. Recently after eating a delicious pack of Haribo gummies, my crown broke off. It's been a rather emotional process going back into the dentist seat and getting a fair evaluation. This illustration was done as a way for me find some comic relief in the situation, and remind myself, even broken can be fixed.
