Out of control
Amount: $4,590.00

Which Tooth: bottom molar second to backType of Crown: porcelain/ceramic
So I had a wonderful woman do my root canal for $1590. She gave me a 20% discount which I really appretiated. Then my dentist who I loved (but has gotten rather grumpy over the past 2 years) charged me $1800 for the crown and $400 for the buildup. Then I was informed that I had to fill the cavity behind it before installing the crown. They charge by the surface so there is another $800. Wish I just had the tooth pulled for $600. Also to the dentist in the group, we are not saying your work is not valuable. We are saying that your therapy area is pricing itself out of the market. The more you charge to stay afloat the fewer customers you will have. If cleanings, xrays, and fillings weren't so expensive we wouldn't have to wait until we need a root canal.

Which Tooth: front 6Type of Crown: porcelain
I have been spending 450.00 to fly to Costa Rica for dental work for the last 5 years. Lodging is very cheap, and I get to hang on the beach while the lab is doing the teeth. Americans are freaked about medical/dental tourism. The internet is full of horror stories about why not to participate in tourism for your health. (for the most part written and made up by doctors and dentists)After this latest mess with the ACA it might be time to check it out. I've had wonderful results. Doctors in other countries are not trained in a shed out back. They go to good schools too. We need to get over the idea that USA has the best medical system. Actually I think we are 15 or 19

Which Tooth: back molarType of Crown: Porcelain/Noble
I feel like I got ripped off after reading the comments here. $1850 for the Porcelain/Noble Crown, $325 for the Core Build-up, and miscellaneous fees for Oral Evaluation, etc. Completely ridiculous. If I had needed a root canal, it would have cost an additional $1395-$1495. We don't have dental insurance, so this was all out of pocket. I need to shop around for a new dentist. $2307 for one root canal. Ridiculous!

Which Tooth: Canine right side.Type of Crown: Porcelain
About two years ago I to got fed up with my dentist of over thirty years. I found a fantastic place with the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. Third year dental students perform procedures under the direct supervision of Board Certified licensed professionals. I am now breaking in my second student, the first is now a dentist with the USN. I have had a partial bridge performed here, along with several fillings, X-rays, cleaning and follow up visits.

Cost in a Mexican border town for a crown made in a Texas lab fitted and installed by a US trained dentist was less than $200. It was a much better fit than one I had done in Florida for 6 times as much.

Which Tooth: 19Type of Crown: Porcelain/Ceramic
I believe my Dentist is charging me too much for this procedure. I was really shocked after receiving the billing for just one tooth crown. I am already 63 years old and never in my life that I got this charges. I did not know in the first place because I don't get a pre-estimate. I already have several fillings from the same dentist and I always pay less than $150.00 per procedure after my insurance.

Which Tooth: 3 front teethType of Crown: Porcelain
I hate going to the dentist. They all overcharge in my opinion. My wife needed some work done, so we went to the dentist. We pay out-of-pocket and use a dental discount card---it helps but it is still very expensive. The dentist spent maybe 30-45 minutes with my wife, grossing over $1,000 an hour by my estimate. We are scheduled to go in one more time to get the crowns placed.rnrnThe dentist did not want to honor the dental discount card, even though she is a participating dentist and she agree to it upfront. I questioned her about the bill because she was charging for extras like a core build up, etc. Sometimes I go to the dentist and they extra charge for items that should be included---it makes me mad. It is like going to a car dealership agreeing on the price and then they say something like, "Would you like tires with that car?"rnrnI hate dentists, they are super greedy. That nonsense about high overhead is overplayed by dentists. Most dentists work four days a week and ha

Gainesville, FL seems as if it would be medical/dental mecca. There's just no competition here. Either it's expensive or it's expensive. No real way to get a decent review of the areas dentists. Disappointing that you have to wing a huge expense.

OMG... I just had to respond to the IDIOT DENTIST(MEHR) in PHX who is FULL OF IT... FIRST OFF, I am very well versed in Business and have a family member who works for a dental lab...E-MAX crowns will cost anywhere from $120 - $ 220 from a lab if they not on special to the dentist. This up to $700 is CRAP...maybe for a SOLID GOLD CROWN lol As far as him WHINER about his cost... BLAH BLAH BLAH, get in a new industry. ALL companies have over head and you morons use it as a major excuse. I had 4 dentist tell me they couldn't do my full mouth for under 22K and in fact I found a Highly Skilled, 20 yr experienced Dentist that did it with my Cigna HMO plan for 12,500 and he still made money... Here how it BREAKS down... 22 teeth@ $200 = $4,400 (1) lower partial $750.00 his Time $150 per hour and asst @ $35 per hour for 14 Hrs (which is WAY MORE THEN ENOUGH) = $ 2,590.. Misc cost Build up mat'l, xray and novocaine $ 500 MAX... Total cost $7,740 plus w/e his F'N overhead is per each patient.

Which Tooth: Back MolarType of Crown: Porcelin
My filling fell out chewing gum and the side of my back tooth came out. Dentist indicated I had a bad root canal years ago. Recommended a new crown for $1500 to save the tooth. Insurance is going to pay I presume 50%. Still a lot out of pocket but didn't want infection or other problem. I just had a root canal on another tooth 4 months ago. It gets to be quite expensive and I'm not sure why the cost have gone up so much when it takes them about an hour to do.

Politicians talk about health care but they never talk about dental care. I would like to see dental care included in Obamacare. I have 5 crowns and need more. At 61, I'd rather just have the teeth pulled, but then you get a big lecture about how bad that is. Dental care should be universal.

Which Tooth: Forget-the-nameType of Crown: Porceilan
A few years back it only cost me $800. These guys accelerate their prices far faster than the Consumer Price Index. Why is that? We need to shop these guys around a little better. They charge lots of money with no recourse. The attitude is "this is the price - take it or leave it". In the future I'm going to get a detailed cost estimate from them, to see if they sweat. Can't stand it. The dentist does great work, though.

I was supposed to have old amalgam fillings replaced "one at a time." Got to office for appt. and after in chair I was maneuvered into "we're going to just do both this morning okay?"

Now I have a temporary double cap and don't want to return for the crown. I'm worried what the additional charges will be. Never rec'd a quote.

None of them have pick the same teeth as needing attention.

Broke this tooth last night. Dentist could see me this morning. Had never been to this dentist before since moving here in Dec.2011. The breakdown: $55 for limited oral exam; $25 film; $834 crown; $214 crown build up; total $1128. I thought this was reasonable for this small town (Bay City, TX). I'll get the crown in two weeks. Dentist was very gentle and understanding.

Which Tooth: 0Type of Crown:
I see most people complain anot being ripped off and how expensive everything is, and why is nuance doesn't cover everything. Let me start by saying that I am a dentist and I see patients everyday, they ask why did their insurance not cover a procedure. Do I look like insurance e company to you? I just perform a service and the contractual between you and your insurance company. Have you ever asked your HR department why they chose that kind of coverage? Why did they choose a 1000 maximum instead of 2500? Why 50% instead of 80%?
Wonder why dentistry is so expensive? We have front desk, assistants, hygienists, malpractice insurance, lease, dental equipment, digital X-ray. Did you know to buy digital X-ray in dental office it can cost up to 17000? Dental chairs are starting from 6000.
Labs can charge anywhere from 60-700 per crown. I don't use a cheap lab, which means you get non precious metals and get allergic reactions to it and also have lead in porcelain. You get what you pay for.
