Yes ma'm, I want cheap. This episode has cost 360 euros already. I'm quoted an additional 330 for my el cheapo mas barato crown and I'm pleased, the original price was 540.
Fast forward a week, the new crown is superglued into place, tango music on their sound system. Wholly appropriate following the waltz for the root canal. I'm pleased with the result and pay the balance on departure. The dentist has done me proud, I've got a porcelain crown at the lower price. Apparently La Dentista just cannot bear to use any other inferior quality material.
