Or … maybe not.
Either way, the painting conjures up what archaeologists might unearth in the future (sans the burning cigarette) due to this little known secret for preventing tooth decay.
A fluoride varnish painted on the teeth hardens enamel and can prevent decay. Even if a cavity is in
its early stages, the varnish can sometimes repair the tooth. This procedure is more commonly
suggested for children, but at a measly $28 it makes sense for an adult who is prone to tooth decay. It’s a heck of a lot cheaper than allowing a cavity to develop — never mind having to get a filling.
Ask for it on your next six month checkup.
