You kiddin'? FCC Gold crowns are actually cheaper than PFM crowns!Floating said:Gold teeth are so expensive!!! Who will pay???
That's something I'll have to think about doing when I get upstairs to clinic. Once I got the prep & dies made for this onlay I'm (still) working on, the waxing/investing/casting was...well, dangerously close to enjoyable.UBTom said:Heh heh, maybe I can forge a ring out of it... You know, one ring to rule them all.
Seriously though, the reason why I started casting my own gold crowns was because I got sick and tired of waiting for the school labs to do it-- They take a week, and I usually have to spend 2 hours adjusting the occlusion and the fit is usually too loose. I cast my own crowns in 6 hours from wax-up to final polish, and it always have good margins, good fit, and takes maybe 10 minutes to adjust the occlusion. Them extra pieces of shiny 16-Karat Jelenko medium gold are icing on the cake.
