Dental crowns are also known as "caps" and fit perfectly over a tooth that has been compromised, such as a tooth that has broken or cracked, is weak from decay, or to cover a large restoration to name a few. The crown restores the tooth to its original shape and size, strength and improves cosmetic appearance.

Ceramic Crowns are made from porcelain-based material and used for restoring front teeth as this material blends in perfectly with your natural tooth color.
Porcelain-fused to metal crown provides a stronger bond than regular porcelain, because it is connected to a metal structure and is extremely durable.
Gold alloys crown is a mix of gold, copper and other metals. In addition to providing a strong bond to the tooth, it doesn't fracture, nor does it wear away the tooth itself.
Base metal alloys crown is made up of non-noble metals that are highly resistant to corrosion and make for a very strong crown. It also requires the least amount of healthy tooth to be removed prior to fitting.
