Crowns are prescribed for damaged, decayed, or broken teeth. Crowns are also placed on the dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be now 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.
