Prefer Cerec Crowns
Cerec technology or CAD CAM technology has come a long way on the last few years. It is very accurate and makes a wonderful restoration. The new material of choice is EMAX. It is very strong and esthetic. And remember, Cerec restorations are designed and delivered in the same appointment. A gold crown has to be sent to the lab and a temporary crown must be worn for two weeks. Costs are similar although the cost of a gold crown is going up due to the cost of gold and its rising cost.
