What is a Resin Bonded BU

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: cleverwabbit  (1 year ago)
Hi
I am about to get a crown on my far back molar (porcelain to HNM) and root canal. I had to get the dental office manager to remove upgrades that I didn't want already. She couldn't tell me what this was except it was part of the crown, but it doesn't have a dental code. I don't care about the aesthetics because it is my back tooth and you can't see it. I have googled it but I can't find anything except for bonding for front teeth and aesthetic purposes.

What "upgrades" are you talking about. A buildup is absolutely essential after a root canal, or the whole top of the crown can break off.

Not many young dentists do them, but if you are not concerned about esthetics and want to save money, having the crown made out of cast metal without any porcelain is a great option because it is so durable. If you can get a dentist to do a 3/4 crown to save the enamel by the cheek it is even better. There is nothing to ever chip on a cast metal crown. Gold is my favorite alloy for this, but silver palladium alloy is a good option, and costs a lot less. A silver palladium crown in my practice is about $900
