need advice

I went to the dentist and he was shocked at the way my teeth look. The enamal on all my teeth are almost gone. I had a grinding problem and all my teeth have become flat (top and bottom), they have given me a mouth gaurd to sleep with. My teeth on the side are almost all gone on both sides. My back tooth is almost none existant. If I look at my teeth, they are so small and tiny.

The dentist say it will cost me about R50000 if he fixes it up and will be over R70000 if I go to a specialist.

I just don't have so much money at the moment and I don't think I'll ever have that much spare. What can I do?

see the dental faculty of your nearest university (WITS, Univeristy of Pretoria, Western Cape). Treatment will be much cheaper
