Crowns as in stick them on the front, or as in grind the real tooth down to a nubbin, and stick a metal tooth with porcelain outside on top of the nubbin?
Does that mean you say, with Osso, that crowning is the stick something on the front, like fake brick cladding?
Crowning here is the grind the toth down to a nubbin thing and stick a fake tooth on top...it would be mega dumb to do that for cosmetic purposes as thay are discovering that the teeth have a tendency to decay at the gumline, and so have a 10 to 20 year shelf life, on average.
I guess we'd call capping sticking the white fake on the front of the tooth.
I don't think it's done much here...though I notice a plethora of what appear to be cosmetic dentistry places opening.
Dentistry is crazy expensive here, too.....and the previous government all but got rid of the free dentistry clinics for the poor, so bad teeth is a sign of no money here...though school dentistry still exists for kids.
I'm in a health fund that means dentistry is very cheap if I use the fund's clinics....I think I pay around $100 for a crown (Australian crown) that way (leave out the ridiculous private health cover fees I pay).
