    Hello Ladies (and Gents)

    Do any of you have Dental Crowns? My Dad's dentist says he need 6 replacement crowns, and offered either Porcelain Fused to Metal or Zirconia

    I'm trying to google for comprehensive list of Dental Crowns and their pros/cons

    Dental Crown - Tooth Crown gives
    • All metal
    • Zirconia
    • Porcelain fused to metal (PFM)
    • Porcelain fused to zirconia
    • All ceramic
    Same website, Different Types of Dental Crowns Colgate gives (but doesn't include Zirconia)

    • Ceramic
    • Porcelain-fused to metal
    • Gold alloys
    • Base metal alloys

    https://www.webmd.com/oral-health/guide/dental-crowns#1 gives (but doesn't include Zirconia)
    • Stainless steel
    • Metals
    • Porcelain-fused-to-metal
    • All-resin
    • All-ceramic or all-porcelain
    • Temporary versus permanent.
    This website, What Are Zirconia Crowns? | ColgateĀ® Oral Care says zirconia crowns cost less than porcelain, but in my Dad's dentist office, Zirconia costs $900 and Porcelain fused to Metal (PFM) costs $600

    My head is spinning .....


    Ladies and Gents, please give your experiences, expertise, and feedback.

    If you know of link to comprehensive listing, that will be deeply appreciated!

    Hi dear, I don't have any personal experience about crowns. But in fb there is a group called 'cure tooth decay: remineralize your tooth naturally discussion forum'. You can post your query there they may guide you else you can do a search there. Btw its a closed group.
