My dad was told that he needs to have a large size cavity filled. He is not so much questing that but the dentist wants to put a $600.00 crown on the tooth as well. And that is the cost with my dad’s insurance. I never heard of having to crown a tooth because of a filling.
However the dentist is saying that the tooth is week and should have a crown so that it does not crack. He thinking he may be taking for a ride though so he did not commit to anything as of yet. I told him he should get a second opinion but he does not want to re due X-rays is there a way to get a second opinion with out new X-rays being done?
