My explanation is crappy, going off my memory from having RC/crown done last June. There is a difference in the enamel of one yr old pup and a 3 yr old dog, may have been the hardness/thickness can't recall and I can't find the article to explain it, my apologies! Anyways, probably won't make much difference as long as the vet is ok with it.
