Re: Root Canal Questions - 1st one kind of urgent

kikki, thank you for answering my questions. If cost is not a problem for me, would you prefer a gold crown or a mercury-containing alloy crown? Which one is healthier or just overall better for the teeth?

My dentist tells me that in my situation waiting for a few months before I get my tooth crowned is ok. But I guess I just want to be better safe than sorry. Would it be a good idea for me to just have my tooth crowned with a different dentist near the new place I'm gonna be at for the next 4 months? I heard that sometimes a root canaled tooth can last for months until the day it's crowned only to be fractured during the crowning process because the process places so much force on the tooth. Is this true?
