    Hi! I am just wondering if anyone knows of a destist that will put a stainless steel crown on adult teeth? I had one for years and it's just come off, and the dentist I was seeing is telling me it will cost over $800 dollars (that I don't have) to replace with other materials, and that he doesn't do stainless steel crowns. I have been asking around with no luck!

    Any one with any insight? Your help is most apreciated!

    Thanks :)
