Agree with sacramento73's post, particularly as it relates to materials used and construction used for crowns. In our office, we had our own lab and constructed crowns with Porcelain fused to Gold (PFG). This was the most expensive material but was (we felt) provided the best results over time. One of the dentists started using a lab that provided a Porcelain fused to Noble Metal (PFN), which was cheaper to construct but still had similar properties to PFG. The metal crowns mentioned above, we would not use.

So, if you plan to have many crowns done, the materials are very important. Make sure you know what you are getting.
