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 because these teeth tend to become brittle over time. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. There are various restorative materials that crowns can be made of; gold, 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.
