So I had a crown put on a tooth this week. I am getting more and more convinced that they capped the wrong tooth. This means they left the one that’s cracked as it was, and ground down and capped a perfectly normal healthy tooth.
What would you do about this, and what would you expect to be done? Just have them do the correct crown? Would you expect it done for free? Sue them? Call NBC Nightly News? Find another dentist to verify the cracked one is still cracked and then tell them? Not tell them but never go back?
I might add this cost me $750 out-of-pocket (besides what the insurance paid, which is now tapped out for the rest of the year), plus time lost from work. And I am really, really afraid of dental work, and this was a fairly “big” trauma for me and if they did do the wrong tooth, I’ll have to go through it all over again.
