Ottawa woman facing $50K tooth fix gains support of dental groups

Posted by Dentist Lafayette Ca on November 1, 2014

Johny-Angel Butera, 30, has almost no back teeth, the result of a condition called amelogenesis imperfecta, which leads to the erosion of the enamel. Every dentist Butera has seen has told her she needs a set of permanent crowns on her teeth, but the procedure would cost $50,000. Butera, a contract worker with little insurance and student loans to pay, cannot afford the surgery.
