Front teeth are the most suitable for ceramic porcelain crowns and are easily matched to colour and shade of natural teeth. Porcelain is fused to gold, or other metal alloy and increases the durability of the dental crown. Gold or metal alloy crowns although highly durable are often reserved for the teeth in the back of your mouth and are less noticeable. New materials are invented all the time to increase the effectiveness of dental crowns, and at times your dentist may recommend a new, more effective material.
A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth and improve its appearance. A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A root canal involves removing the nerve and pulp from the tooth, cleaning and shaping the root canal, and then filling and sealing the tooth.
You can get a dental crown in Perth without a root canal, but you may need a root canal in the future if the tooth becomes decayed or infected.
