Dental crowns, Silver vs White dental crowns.
Hello, I need to have three crowns. all in three crown would be for my molars which are in the back of my mouth. I want to have the metal or silver crowns because they are $250.00 cheaper that is a saving of $750.00. The silver crowns I can afford without to much financial worries. The white crowns I would need to put on a credit card and god only knows how long it would take me to pay off that bill.
My friends are telling me to get the white crown because the silver ones are tacky and look bad. My thinking is the crowns are going to be in the back of my mouth, so it not like you will really see them. Yet the people I talk to about this seem to think I am crazy for wanting the silver ones. It is not like I want the silver crown over the white crown only that I can afford them where the other crowns would put me in dept.
So my quetion is: Is it really that bad to have silver crowns if they are in the back of your mouth? Or should I go with what my friends tell me and put myself in dept for the tooth color white crowns? Opinions please.
