After ringing round last May to get the cost of refixing a loose crown (average CHF 220), it worked out cheaper to fly to the UK and get the work done privately there. I had the same treatment as you've posted above last November and paid 175.
Depends how you account for it.

btw I always try to avoid X rays at the dentist, even to whiten your teeth they make you take an X ray nowadays. That adds to the bill and it's radiations to your head.
The radiation exposure from a dental x-ray is about the same as from a 1-2 hour flight. Do you avoid those as well?
http://www.xrayrisk.com/faq.php#q20 While it's sensible to avoid risk where possible, you need to weigh the opposing risks. Is the risk of getting damaged by the dental x-ray (no more than 1 every two years), against the risk of getting damaged by undetected tooth issues.

Many people are irrationally afraid of radiation, mainly through lack of understanding. Try this book if you're interested in educating yourself.
