Gold possesses several attributes that make it extremely useful as a material for crowns. The metal is very durable and resistant to chips or breaks, delivering long-lasting use without worry. In addition, gold does not wear down easily, allowing it to stand up to chewing. For people who grind their teeth or have a heavy bite, a gold dental crown limits the amount of wear caused to the tooth it is aligned opposite of in your mouth. With a gold dental crown, you can count on a long-term solution to any tooth damage.
However, gold crowns have a more noticeable appearance than those made with ceramic materials that offer a natural color. Because of this, gold crowns are most often used at the back of the mouth where they are less likely to be seen. At Red Bank Smiles, Dr. Klayman works with patients to determine which crown options are best suited to their unique needs, so you’ll receive a personalized solution tailored to your oral health concerns.
