Consider Gold for Your Dental Crowns

A person with gold crowns
There are a lot of choices when it comes to getting crowns put on your teeth. Although not widely used, there are benefits to gold crowns, and people do sometimes get them put on for good reasons. Here is some information about gold crowns.

Strength & Durability

One reason your dentist may recommend gold crowns is if you have a habit of biting strong foods, or if you clench or grind your teeth. This is because gold is more durable than the other crown materials and will not be affected as badly by grinding or chewing something hard. You don’t have to worry about what they look like in the case of the molars, which are in the back of the mouth and most commonly where crowns are found.

Versatility

There are three different forms of crowns that you can get depending on why you need them. Full crowns will cover up the entire tooth down to the gums, and this may be necessary if the tooth has been badly damaged and needs to be covered up to stay together. Gold inlays are castings used in place of large fillings, and onlays are like full crowns but have width reduction. These do not touch the gums.
If you want a crown that is going to withstand pressure from grinding, ask Gold Teeth Baton Rouge about gold crowns.
