My girlfriend has been grinding her teeth but does not

Customer Question

My girlfriend has been grinding her teeth for years but does not currently grind. She went for a dental eval and 20 or so crowns were recommended at a cost of roughfly $25,000. He also said it would have to be done at the same time, all of them. Does this make sense?

Hello

No

It makes no sense.
I would be very cautious here and get another opinion.

She should not have a crown unless the tooth is otherwise not

salvageable.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
