Dental advice


#162

Is there any dental visit that is?


#163

Not really but the root canal involves a fair skip of drilling.


#164

I don’t mind that. How long does it take the anaesthetic to wear off, roughly. I don’t want to be influencing out one side of my face


#165

Couple of hours


#166

Thanks. Most helpful


#167

Having one side of your face paralysed might hide your horrendous Limerick townie accent. Plough on with the meeting.


#168

How much is the going rate for a crown/veneer?


#169

€1200


#170

I was thinking that. Saw 500 in the dentist yesterday thought it was too good to be true


#171

Do you want it done or want it done properly?


#172

True that but a quick bit of research tells me there’s a such thing as “ultra thin” veneers now. A cheaper option. I’ve been to Budapest before for dental treatment and it was of a much higher standard than here for half the price.


#173

I’d one done last year in Dublin and whatever Dental Plan I have on my work VHI covered the cost of almost all of it. I may have ended up paying about 100 quid or so. The Dental plan add ons are dirt cheap for what you get from them


#174

How much is your dental plan, mate? I have the basic one, think it’s about €260 a year, but I’m finding out to my cost in last 6 weeks that it’s kinda shit.

I got some veneers put in a while back and tried to claim tax back. Asked the dentist to fill in the Med 2 form so I could claim. She said because the veneers were made in-house I couldn’t claim. I tried a little gentle persuasion but she said they couldn’t as it would be fraud and they would be in trouble if Revenue found out. I asked her how it was possible for Revenue to find out where the veneers stuck in my head were made.


#176

I’d look into that, pal. That doesn’t sound right.


#177

I got on to Revenue and asked them, explained that the veneers were made in-house and not in a lab. Revenue said it was eligible. There must be small print on the Med 2 form, dentist was still adamant they weren’t signing it even though I had written confirmation from Revenue.


#178

Sounds like your dentist is up to something very shady and doesn’t want Revenue knocking about.


#179

Don’t let it go Mike. Keep on top the fuckers.
Get your teeth into it


#180

Does your dentist also sell gates and power tools


#181

Because the dentist was probably including their sale in VAT returns. V easy cross reference after that if they were bothered
