Q.

Scared to death

I''''m a few weeks away from my 16th birthday, I''ve gotten a (kroon?), but since I''m not at 16 yet, it''s filled with metal in stead of gold till I''m old enough to have it filled with gold. I had this done when I was 9, but in my mind it feels shorter ago, since it was a very traumatic experience for me. I mean having your nerves ripped out of your mouth is kinda horrifying!! And I felt it as if I hadn''t gotten that injection. I''m horrified of having the gold inserted, I start crying just at the word " dentist" , but my father insists on taking me as soon as possible. Is it really necissary to have the gold put in, because I feel like running and hiding at the thought....?
