There is a vast array of different types of crowns and bridges available to patients today. These include gold, porcelain and gold, all porcelain, and ceramic. The type of material used depends on the primary goal of esthetics vs function, which at times has to be combined for the best results.
A majority of crowns depend on the skill of the laboratory technician that constructs the crown. As in all venues of skills, this is critical. Using a “Big Box” lab can result in a cheaper crown financially, but it can also result in a compromised fit. These “Big Box” crowns and bridges can lead to decay under them, and future problems. We make a point to always use the best technicians for our work, ensuring a perfect fit. As always, your dental health is our priority.
