Broke one of my front teeth on Monday so a trip to the dentist was mandatory! Fucking joy! Every fuckin time I go it costs me, and yes I have insurance. Well as i turns out it was my dental bonding that broke and could be replaced but the dentist wanted to cap it and after insurance that would of been $320 (half w/20% discount). Then he goes on to say I have large bonding's on the other surrounding teeth and those should be capped too. So we're talkin 3 teeth and my insurance only wants to cover 1 because of previous work done this year. So my cost would of been bout $1500..

NOPE wasn't happening! The tooth broken was about a 2 quarter gap and the other teeth were not bothering me! SO FUCK YOU MR. DENTIST!! Im so tired of being overcharged by the dentist it sucks!! On top of that they ass rape your insurance provider so bad that you can't afford to have anything major done after a few fillings and some cleanings each year!

I have won the battle for now, but that mother fucker will always win the war!

Fuck, I know about being overcharged. Fucking asshole dentist did an unnecessary root canal on a tooth that could have been easily fixed with a filling. He did this without asking my parents first (I was still a minor). Fucking BS.

I have to get a filling soon, and I'm between dentists. The new onw tells me about how the old one scred up my teeth and he'll have to fix them.

It's the insurance companies. They demand discounts, which the hospitals are more than happy to grant... they just raise the bottom line, and wa-la, they get paid the same as before the discount, and the lone person who has to foot the bill's alone gets screwed.
