sorry didnt know where to put this but one of my lower bottom teeth was broken off and i went to dentist and she said that she didnt think she could save it and it would be best to come out. It was planned for next wednesday and the dentist phoned yesterday so say sorry it couldnt be done as the dentist now has a course to go on all week. So i managed to get a appointment with another dentist this morning. This guy is telling me that after the xrays (which the other dentist did aswell) that he thinks its not as bad as it looks and he can do root canal treatment and porcelain bonded crown fitted. At the moment hes cleaned it out and put some filling on top for next friday. he said i can still have the tooth out if i really wanted.
the problem £586.00 , i can just about afford it and wonder whether its worth doing it as crowns can fall out and ive got to go and pay for it to be done again.
the tooth at the bottom about 4th in from the front so althoguh if i have it out it will be noticeable but not too bad, the difference probably is £400.00 . but then i keep watching all these programs where they say that try to keep your natural teeth if possible and it makes sense, can anyone comment on having a crown fitted and was it ok, didnt fall out etc and does that cost look normal!!
not sure if i'm even being rippe doff, shouldnt all dentist try to save the tooth if they can, and by doing so make more money, why would one say they cant and charge £70 to remove it and another say he can and want nearly £600, unless i end up going back in 6 months and he says it will have to come out anyway.
