Mixing crown materials

Hi

I've just had a root canal filling and the dentist is recommending ceramic crowns only to replace existing gold crowns in the filled teeth (the most expensive option, also). He is also advising strongly against mixing the crown materials although that had not been presented as a problem on the first consultation.

I have existing gold crowns and he says that a silver under a gold crown could cause a possible sparking (he was translating from German so I'm not sure I have the right meaning).

Your insights would be gratefully received. 🙂

  • I too had somewhat similar situation. My dentist Dr. Phelan in Oakville asked me to get porcelain dental crowns and I'm happy with it. I think it will look great if you do as suggested by your dentist. So far I didn't have any issue. Good luck with your decision!!
