Know where your crowns come from!
American dentists often wind up unknowingly with crowns made in China
There's an article on aol that talks about a woman who went to an unlicensed dentist in China and had twelve crowns placed over her existing teeth. The crowns were loaded with lead, fit poorly and her gums were changing color as a reaction to the toxic materials. The take home message from the article is that American dentists often wind up unknowingly with crowns made in China which come from inexpensive lab deals. Lead is not the only metal to be concerned with when it comes to metal crowns. Many crowns also contain aluminum, nickel and even arsenic. Visit www.DrblancheGrube.com for more information.
