A very short story with no real point, perhaps about excess

Today I am reminded of excess. And about the story about a boy who never brushed his teeth and ended up with a mouth full of fillings. After vowing never to endure another filling the boy became fanatical and brushed his teeth so often that he brushed off all the enamel. I would like at this point to make an outrageous claim; by the (tender) age of seven the entire top row of the boy's teeth were crowned, to protect them.

But this is a true story and that would be a false claim. In real life, the school dental nurse consoled the boy's worried mother; they were only his milk teeth and the second set were still to come through.
