Shopping around for a good price is a good idea, asking for a discount also can 
give good results.

That said, the health of one's mouth is a canary for the rest of the body. Good 
teeth also are a major quality of life issue. It's not a good place to cut corners.

I once knew a woman who came here from Russia. She had bad teeth, and a 
cringe-worthy smile. She had no money, but saved every dime until she could 
afford the dentist. The results were amazing. It completely transformed her face 
in a good way, and I think it turned around her life for the better.
