Gold crowns are something that you can consider having done when you need to cap a tooth that was damaged due to decay or some type of injury. While having a grill might be the furthest thing from your mind, there are actually numerous benefits to having those gold teeth that you might not have thought of.
Our office understands the importance of them and are committed to providing information about the benefits that come with having this procedure done over getting a more traditional crown.
Benefits to Expect with a Gold Crown
Crowns are provided to strengthen the walls of a weak tooth. They are there to provide support and can replace parts of a tooth when not enough of the natural tooth is there.
Gold is just one of the materials that crowned teeth can be made from. Gold is a top contender on the market for crowns because they prevent leakage from occurring, as well as recurrent tooth decay on the underside of the crown. They are strong, making them resistant to fractures and corrosion. There is also minimal need to have most of the tooth removed because this can provide a healthy, strong replacement.
Gold crowns are much more than a fashion statement when you have them put on. They provide many benefits that help you keep the integrity of your teeth, while also giving you a shiny, new smile. Any and all of the teeth in your mouth can have gold crowns, if you so desire.
