I will be having two root canals in the back and I will be needing crowns on both teeth. Since I have to go to a specialist for the root canals the cost is really high at almost $1800 and that is just for the needed root canals which there is nothing much I can do there.
However the dentist what to give me porcelain crowns that are going to cost $800 each. I just can not afford to have all this dental work. I am scraping up the money for the root canals as it is. I told him I would just have cheap metal crowns for now which would cost less then 100.00 each.
My thinking is when I can better afford the more costly crowns I would get them at that time. Is having metal crowns really all that bad when they are in the back of my mouth anyway. Opinions on what you would do would be a great help in my decision process.
