I would recommend seeing your dentist to discuss your concerns. In good faith, your dentist may opt remake your crowns, but you will likely not get a refund. I always recommend looking a before and after photos of the doctor you are considering. These are usually a pretty good indication of the results you can expect for yourself. I hope this helps.

There are excellent dentists in Europe, Mexico, India and the US.  There is also lots of borderline and downright bad dentistry done in all of these areas.  Let the buyer beware is a good axiom, especially when it comes to having dentistry done outside the US.

I suggest you contact the doctor who did the work and explain the problem.  There is usually no legal remedies other than the doctors professionalism.
