Crown replacement is a long-term method of replacing teeth. A crown is placed on your individual tooth, similar to a thimble over your finger, where there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling.

Crowns are most often made from ceramics and occasionally with precious metals, like gold. Both esthetics and function are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.

Ask Dr. Burgess what crown type is the best for you!


Ceramic crowns give you the most natural-looking color finish. We proved specialized types that are suitable for your specific needs. This type of crown is best for cosmetic appearance, so if you need a crown in the front of your mouth this is likely to be the best choice. It also can be suitable should you have any metal allergies.


Benefits of crowns with a gold alloy include overall less wear against the surrounding teeth. These types of crowns are best used for out-of-sight molars.


Some instances allow for crowns that are a combination of materials. The two combinations usually are porcelain and gold alloys.
