Dental Crowns
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure giving the tooth a longer life than it would have if restored by fillings or other types of restorations.

There are three common types of crowns, All Porcelain (tooth colored), Porcelain Fused To Metal (PFM), and Gold. All Porcelain crowns are very esthetically pleasing, and usually recommended for anterior (front) teeth only. There is a high risk of fracturing this type of crown when used to restore back teeth. Porcelain Fused To Metal crowns are metal based crowns with porcelain baked to the outside to make it more cosmetically appealing. Gold crowns are very durable and they are usually recommended for back teeth where the crown cannot be seen. They are often recommended for people that grind or clinch their teeth. Gold crowns are most like your natural teeth and your tissue adapts best to this material. Also, less actual tooth structure needs to be removed for this type of crown.

If a crown is needed, Dr. Young will discuss what type of crown would be best for you.
