The function and appearance of a smile can be improved by fixing broken, fractured or over-restored teeth with crowns.
Ceramic crowns are the most common types of crowns used to rebuild, reshape and/or protect teeth. With proper tooth preparation, attention to fit and appearance, and thorough home care, your ceramic crown can provide years of service while giving you an attractive smile and functional bite.
Partial Gold and Full-Cast Gold Crowns
Gold crowns are sometimes needed on back teeth (usually where they are not visible) to protect and rebuild teeth. Gold crowns are often recommended for back teeth because they allow you to keep the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure, while protecting and supporting stressed or worn areas. Gold restorations allow for a desirable, close-fitting crown and wear most like enamel.
