Porcelain-fused-to-metal Crown

This type of crown has a combination of porcelain bonded to a supporting underlying structure of gold alloy that creates a very strong and durable protective barrier for a tooth. Crowns are sometimes but not always used to protect a tooth that has not always used to protect a tooth that has been treated by a Root Canal. The natural tooth structure is reduced to accommodate for the placement of a crown and the fit. A shade is also chosen for the crown for aesthetic purposes.
