in researching for a new dentist, i was told that my dental plan doesn't cover the type of crowns this dentist uses. they use a product called emax crowns, and don't do the old metal crowns. have you heard of this new "emax" product, and why wouldn't it be covered by dental insurance?

  • E-max is the lithium disillicate crowns which are esthetically recommended. the metal crowns are not very esthetic but these e-max crowns are esthetically acceptable and they are quite strong also if the case selection is good but E-max crowns are very expensive. The insurance companies cover the treatment which helps in function . if a particular crown can serve the purpose and it is not very expensive then insurance companies will cover that crown not the one which serves the same purpose but expensive as it is more esthetic.Rest you can discuss with your dentist.
