Crowns


Crowns are custom made to cover an entire tooth. The materials used are gold, porcelain fused to metal (PFM), or all porcelain crowns. On the back teeth crowns are often placed to protect badly worn or heavily filled teeth. With front teeth these reasons also apply but crowns are also often placed to improve appearance or minor misalignment of teeth.
