i went to the dentist i was having alot of pain,he ended up filing most of my normal teeth down ,so that i could have crowns on,he told me that i should have the m 15-20 years , this was 4 years ago now my crowns keep coming of , so last time i went in hoping to get the 3 crowns fixed in again ,that cost me 1500.00, he said i was doing to much grinding at night and that i had gone down to the metal, i asked him if he could put them back in figuring there were at least two that had not gone down to the metal and i paid 1500 for them , he said it wouldnt be worth it , and that i need e ti have some teeth out , and then have partials two partuals which are going to cost me 2500,
my friend said the dentist wasnt doing hes job well and i should go see a lawyer ,the crowns should have lasted longer what do yu all think thats alotof money huh?my friend send i should get another opinion.

You need to get a second opinion. I have 11 crowns which I have had for 17 years and have never lost one. In fact I had to have a root canal done on one of my crowns and my dentist couldn't get it off, he had to drill through it and then fill it like a normal tooth.

He sounds like a scammer! I'd definitely get a second opinion. I don't know how much of a lawsuit you'd have against him at this point, but keep all your records just in case! Good luck, what a bummer.
