A dental crown serves as an entirely new surface for a damaged tooth, and allows the “new” tooth to continue to function as usual.

There are three basic types of dental crowns. There are the metal (“gold,”) the ceramic (porcelain,) and the composite, a combination of both metal and ceramic.

Porcelain crowns are the most cosmetically flattering, and a common choice for use in front teeth. Gold crowns are easily fitted to perfection, won’t chip and are very resistant to wear. Composite crowns consist of a metal frame that is then fused with a porcelain veneer finish.
