Recently I have been getting some work done and I was curious what it would cost in your neck of the woods.

Root canal per tooth-$75
Porcelan crown-$160.00
Cleaning by Dentist-$15
I just had a second crown started and realized that I had misstated the price in my OP.

The "Crown" was actually $217.00 when I added in the x-rays and such.
