A crown is placed on a tooth that is either at risk of fracturing, has fractured slightly, or has a cavity
that is too large to have a conservative filling placed. During a crown procedure, the tooth is cut all
the way around the tooth and reduced in height. After the tooth is cut, an impression is taken,
and a temporary crown is placed onto the tooth. The permanent crown is custom made at a lab and cemented onto the tooth a couple of weeks later. We use different types of materials for crowns.
A crown can be all gold, porcelain over a gold alloy, or all porcelain. There are many different types
of new porcelains that vary in quality of aesthetics versus strength.
