Well, of course!
But if you have or had to get a anterior or posterior crown, what kind do you
have/ would you prefer?

Anterior Captek or Bonded all porcelain
Posterior Captek
2nd molar gold

Gotta admit that the Cerecs are very nice too...
I would have one of those in the molars or bicuspids.
Mancuso has a glazing oven so he could custom stain anteriors.
I could go for that too.

Definitely Captek. Costs a few dollars more with lab bill, but
everything else is the same. Same custom designed shading in the
porcelain, not painted on afterwards ........ same firing and surface
hardness .......

Do Capteks reflect/transmit light like (or pretty darn similarly to!) real
teeth?

Are Capteks a lot brighter than natural teeth, a la PFMS?

Back in the mid 80's when gold was at it's peak price
there was a considerable cost difference. Gold was
in the ~$800-900/oz. troy range.

Believe it or not some people just don't want gold.

The metal coping is made differently and is not really a casting.

From: http://www.captek.com/new_captek/

CAPTEK G
A highly malleable gold material that is applied over Captek P. When processed, Captek G forms a
composite high gold metal alloy through capillary attraction.

CAPTEK P
A highly malleable gold, platinum and palladium alloy. When processed, it provides a three
dimensional network of capillaries that will be filled by Captek G material forming a composite high
gold metal alloy.

I am of the understanding that many different porcelains may be fused to
the captek coping, but I could be wrong.
