    Metal crowns

    Why am I having trouble finding a dentist who will do metal crowns? We recently moved to NoVA and when I call the dentists recomended by others I am told they do only porcelain or zirconium. Because I clench, I want PFM or gold crowns so that the opposing teeth don't also crack from the hard crowns. I do also wear a nightguard, but that apparently isn't sufficient since my teeth keep cracking. (I've recently limited myself to cashews, walnuts and softer peanuts to satisfy my nut cravings.)

    I don't care about aesthetics--just want to eat my salad and nuts! I've read in numerous places that full cast gold crowns are the best for bruxers
    like me. So why won't dentists do them?

    There may not be a lab in the area that makes them. Is there a dental school near you? I'd give them a call

    You could phone the dental technicians in your area and ask which dentists do metal crowns.
    I agree that they are trouble-free and much better unless aesthetics are important.
