Based upon reviews and consultation with local dentist, I would not put a two crowns on two front where one tooth is dead, rather than one crown covering both teeth. Separate crowns for each tooth would be necessary with wide larger posts put into dead tooth. Better to do separate crown for each tooth and and only then bridge if needed. May not even be necessary. If I had to do it again, I would NOT have put veneers on my front teeth so I recommend that everyone think this through carefully. Rather, I would have had a crown put on only the dead tooth. Dentist talked me into veneers on two front teeth. Please think through before having done.
I just completed having two crowns put on my front...

Since I didn't name the doctor, I didn't answer the specific questions, however, my overall comment is that just because a dentist adds the work "cosmetic" to their name (or did some work in their residency) does not necessarily make them a cosmetic dentist. Be forewarned. There is actually an Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry which has pretty strict exams written and clinical)
