That's horrid about the dental work it's so bloody expensive!! I've spend $20k+ on my teeth and it sucks.
All I suggest is shopping round and seeing what other dentists suggest. Some may have different prices but others may also have payment plans.
I'm fine, just impatient and I also feel guilty for feeling like that.
I'm stuck in my ways and a home body!! But we have moved to our dream house on a 5 acre block overlooking bush and a valley so I think that's made me biased
