I had a similar experience.. last year my dentist placed a temporary aluminum corwn directly over a gold crown (which he had installed 6 weeks earlier).

Then he went on vacation.  Then I wnet on vacation. Sixx weeks later,he removed the temp and found (only to HIS surprise)  that it was pitted and shot with corrosion.

  I left, angry but tactful.. He never responded to my requests for more information. I never went back, and never billed me for the $400 balance.  I'd be more prone to spend it to intitiate a malpractice lawsuit....
