Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly
decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed
for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace
missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate
for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from
high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
With proper care, your new crown will increase your overall health and instill confidence
for years to come.
