Google: Hi. I'd suggest you search the internet with the name of your town, plus the addition of cerec or itero. Either of these technologies can be used to take digital impressions for bridges! there are lots of cerec dentists in michigan. I'm assuming you aren't interested in an implant to replace your missing tooth which is a much better option and is not always that much more expensive. ...Read more

Which could very well be the longer lasting dental cap for back teeth--cerec, porcelin fused to high noble metal or a gold crown?

Which could very well be the longer lasting dental cap for back teeth--cerec, porcelin fused to high noble metal or a gold crown?

Two issues here: There are two factors to consider when answering this question: 1-Strength of crown: a gold crown cannot break; any one with a ceramic surface can break although very small percentage. 2- Any tooth with a crown can decay around margins if poor oral hygiene or high sugar or acid intake. Each type of crown has advantages and disadvantages. Speak to your own dentist as to which is best for you. ...Read more

The great teachers agree: Love yourself and love the other just as much. ...Read more
