What to do about dental malpractice?

Question Details: About 3 years ago, I met a dentist who lived out of state. He said that he would give me a great price on dental veneers, so I flew too his office twice to have the work done. Before leaving the second time when the work was permanent, I noticed that one of the veneers was chipped near the gum line. I asked about it and he said, "If it becomes a problem we will cross that bridge when we come to it". Well, it has become a problem. He says he will fix it but that I have to pay to fly there again. Should I be responsible for the travel expenses to fix his mistake?
