These days, many people believe that porcelain crowns are the only way to go. But gold crowns are still a popular and effective restorative dentistry option. And if you take care of them, they can last for many years. They are placed over your natural tooth to protect it from further damage or to enhance its appearance.
A gold crown is a type of dental restoration that encases the entire tooth to strengthen and protect it. Crowns often restore a tooth severely damaged by decay or injury. They have been used for dental restoration for centuries and are still considered one of the best materials for this purpose.
Gold is highly durable and will not tarnish or discolor like other metals. It is also non-reactive, so it will not cause any allergic reactions. In addition, They are very easy to care for. For these reasons, they are still considered the “gold” standard for dental restoration.
They are made using a combination of gold and alloys. The gold provides strength and durability, while the alloys give the crown a lifelike appearance.
There are many reasons why you might need a gold crown. We may recommend them if you have a cracked or broken tooth or need a large filling replaced.
