I went to Dr. Carly's office for a crown that came off about an hour prior. It simply needed to be re-cemented. I was told it would be $120. Once in the chair they took an x-ray (not needed) and DID NOT TELL ME they charged me $47 for it. Then they told me $107 for diagnosis and $160. to re-cement the crown. I was told the total would be $314. I reluctantly agreed because it had to be done. I feel they took advantage of me. $314 for less than 30 minutes, when I was originally told it would be $120. Think about it, an hourly rate for this would be $628.
