Hi Ruth,

Wow, so much diff in prices?! Could the 2 have been very different cases?

The dentist said he'll have to 'chisel' away my 2 side teeth first to make more space for the fake tooth in-between them. After the chiseling, he'll have to cap the 2 for protection. Each cap costs $600! The bridge costs $350. So in total it'll be $600+$600+$350 = $1550!! WHOA!

It's a new dentist I'm seeing so I'm checking out the prices and procedure. Was told also bridging is not exactly permanent. Can wear out after 10 years or more?
