Welcome to twominenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons. In this lesson you will learn about phrases that
you can use to interact with your dentist. Hello, Jodie. How are you doing? Not good, doc! I’m having a bad toothache. Hmmm..Let me check… Is it something bad? Well, nothing unusual for a sweet tooth like
you! You’ve got another set of cavities. Ouch. But, I’ve been taking good care of my teeth. The gaps you have between your teeth make you prone to frequent cavities. This is the reason I keep on asking you to visit the
dentist once every 6 months to maintain your oral hygiene. Yes, I know you’re right. Are the cavities really bad? Not that bad. We’ll fix them up with composite filling. Hi, how are you? I’m good. I’m actually tired of these stains on my teeth.
Could you suggest any treatment that could remove them permanently? Well, we can fix that with scaling and polishing. How much will it cost? The whole process will take 3-4 sittings of 45
minutes each. Each sitting will cost you $50. Will it be painful? No. Not at all! You won’t even know what’s going on. Can I get an appointment for the first sitting? Sure. You can come tomorrow morning at 11. Okay, thanks. Hi Susan. How are you? Not good, doc. I got my tooth chipped last night. How did that happen? I slipped off the stairs last night. Sounds bad. C’mon, show me your chipped tooth. Ouch!…That’s really bad. Can you fix it? Well, we’ll have to put a crown over the chipped tooth. Will that be painful? Yes, it can be a little painful. But,
if you want, I can use anaesthesia. No, that’s okay. I can bear a little pain. I have these gaps in between my front teeth. Is
there any way I can get them covered? Yes. We can use composite material to fix them up. But, I see
you have pretty big gaps on both sides. I suggest veneers. How much would it cost? Veneers would cost you around $250 per tooth. That’s pretty expensive! And how long would it last? Veneers can last up to 7 years if taken care of properly. That’s pretty good. Alright. I’ll check my dental
plan coverage first and let you know. I gotta bad toothache. But, I’ve been taking good care of my teeth. Are the cavities really bad? I’m actually tired of these stains on my teeth. Could
