Note that for all dentist work you should thoroughly research the dentist before getting any treatment. Private dentist prices and charges can vary widely, and just because a private dentist 's price is high doesn't necassarily mean you are being ripped off, you might well be getting very high quality dental work. Like wise a very cheap dentist may still be providing high quality private dental care, but at a lower price.
The cost of dental work depends upon the circumstances and specifics of the job entailed. Therefore, it is difficult to say exactly how much, for example, a new bridge should cost. The prices on this websites are guidelines only. Just because an actual price is slightly more or less doesn't mean you are getting 'ripped off'. Note also that some dental work is subjective. One dentist may recommend a new bridge whilst another may suggest you'll be better off without one. If in doubt get a second opinion - if possible.
Preventative dentistry is better than cure, both in terms of how hard it hits your wallet and how much it hurts! Ideally you should visit your dentist every 6-12 months for a check up.
