I'm scheduled for a root canal treatment on my number 19 tooth and the dentist recommended a PFM crown after the root canal. The cost is ~$875 dollars and I was wondering how much more a palladium alloy crown would cost. Thanks!
Cost of a palladium alloy crown for the number 19 tooth?

I would recommend an all-porcelain crown. I have fabricated thousands with a negligible failure rate (less than 0.1%). All ceramic is usually more esthetic, there is no risk of allergy to a metal alloy and there is no risk of a galvanic reaction from dissimilar metals in the mouth.
