In the past, it has been reported that some dental crowns and bridges may be tainted with lead.
People quickly assumed the problem was with foreign dental labs, particularly those in China.
The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey asking dentists a number of questions about foreign dental labs.
One dentist said, “Patients have been systematically kept in the dark when it comes to dental procedures. Patients should be given informed consent when choosing materials.”
Another dentist complained, “Too many dentists are accommodating low insurance payment schedules by buying materials and fabrications that are too cheap. It doesn’t seem to matter that it compromises the health of the patient.”
