What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? MN
A veneer crown was installed on my upper tooth about 4 years ago. It broke and dropped off in my mouth when I was sleeping in last week. I saw the dentist the next day since he mentioned 5-year guarantee of his crown when the work was done.
But now he claims that there is a precondition to visit him regularly in order to get this guarantee. My understanding is that from contract law perspective, the requirement is not valid as it was not communicated when the procedure was performed. I moved 40 miles away 1 year after the procedure and started to see another dentist.
He wants me to pay 50% of his cost plus full material fee to replace the crown. Is that reasonable? Is there other legal channel I can use to settle this dispute? I have never sued anyone or been sued so far, no experience.
