Gold Crowns

Gold Crown

The preparation of a tooth for a gold crown is the simplest and least complicated preparation as minimal tooth structure is removed with as much as possible of the healthy tooth structure remaining untouched. While porcelain is a hard material by comparison, it may cause wear on opposing teeth over the years where gold is not as likely to do so. Gold is easier to fit to the area where the tooth and crown meet for a better fit. Gold is also a healthier environment for the gum tissue.
