I’m Worried That I’ll Keep Having To Pay For Crowns, Would I Be Better With A Permanent Metal One?

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Hello, Dr Moore. I’ve previously had treatment for a porcelain crowning fitted onto my bottom left incisor, but after a year it has completely shattered off, the capping I had before this was a lot stronger, but I fear now that I’m 18 that I have to pay for a new one, and I’m told that the crowns are only meant to last for a few years and it’s a 300 pound replacement each time which I would struggle to afford. So I’ve come to the conclusion that I would rather have a more permanent metal replacement of some sort. What would be best type to get and how much would it cost me? Also what do you think would be the cheapest? Thanks, I really hope you can answer my question.

Should I Get A Gold Bridge And Gold Fillings?

Friday, May 24th, 2013

I recently lost 2 teeth ul5 and ul7 . I’ve been told a need a bridge . Is gold the best option? Also have a lot of silver fillings which are over 15 years old and caused these 2 teeth to crack. I went to 4 different dentists that said they were fine. Should they been replaced with gold do you think? Recently I changed to a private dentist and I would also like to know, how do white composite fillings compare to gold ones and are they an option?Many thanks. Hope to hear back from you soon.
