That's kind of amazing. Last time I got a crown, about 5 years ago, the cost was a little over $600.

I thought growing old would take longer.

Your cost seems quite high to me Khan. I live in the DC area where things are generally more expensive than the norm. I had a crown done 2 months ago for $1,305.30. It was a big, back tooth and not an easy job. I know because I've had several other crowns done in the past.

My dentist is highly respected and has a very popular practice. I suspect I could have had the work done for for even less by a another good dentist in the area. Bottom line, if you need more work done in the future, you might want to get a couple of estimates first.

I purr therefore I am.

BTW, I have the removed gold crown. Wonder if it's worth anything.

Sold some of mine and have more to sell. They don't sell for as much as they cost.... They are about 14 carat and the pawn shops or gold buyers buy the gold by the pennyweight.... got a pennyweight scale? me either.

He only paid $30 for his crown.

You got ripped off.
