    Sorry, I don't know how to respond. I'm able to use full zirconia and eMax for my patients.

    [QUOTE="...I don't normally grind or clench my teeth, and I don't suffer from bruxism, but I did have a deep cavity in that molar (upper first maxillary) that ended up with the root canal treatment - and I'm just so unclear about what to do now. What is your opinion & suggestion?[/QUOTE]
    Goodness gracious! (euphemism). My preferred material for a posterior molar is a gold alloy - fits well, indestructible, can be very thin, doesn't wear away opposing teeth, easy to adjust. Does that help you?
