I got a real shock yesterday! My dentist removed a cap from one of my teeth because an infection had started up underneath it. She took the cap off and removed the decayed portions from the tooth underneath and said she would re-cap it on the next visit and gave me another RDV for next Thursday. Sounded good - and before I left she gave me a devis for 3 different qualities of cap to choose from ---- well, I nearly collapsed on the surgery flooor!! ----- the prices ranged from 1,800 euros for the cheapest, to nearly 2,300 euros!!!
There is no way that I could afford even the cheapest, so I'm going to ask her to put on a temporary cap and hope that it lasts until I can find the funds.
Then when I got home, I got googling on the internet and see that in the UK, under the NHS, it costs £195 for up to 10 caps!! - I know that I'm not entitled to go via the NHS because I live in france, but has anyone else even gone to the UK for private dental treatment and have any idea of the fees, compared to france?
