if you have to ask about the price..........well then its gonna probably cost too much.
besides if it isn't hurting, leave it till you get some ins.

Depends on what they have to do.

$1000.00 for a crown or a veneer.

If they can bond the chipped area, about $300.

Around here crowns are like $500-$600

Good point that it may be less expensive in other areas. I just know what it costs here.

Insurance picks up the other half .....so right around $1,000.00

You have a precondition, as far as I know it will not be covered.

Get a job where its offered.

Self insurance is WAY to expensive, and doesn't cover resonable and customary care.
