Default timing chain

I have a 2005 Honda Accord that jumped time. My mechanic told me I have a bent valve. He said we can get repair the cylinder head and advised if it was him, he would go ahead and replace the timing chain. Problem is, is this is going to add around $800 to my cost. Do you see it's necessary to replace the timing chain?

If the chain jumped a tooth, it is loose/worn enough to do it again. Trust me, you don't want to have to yank the head again, put the new chain and any associated support hardware in there now while the engine is apart.
