The materials used for crowns have evolved dramatically in recent years. Although gold is still used for some crowns, full porcelain crowns are now done routinely. These strong and natural appearing materials eliminate the unsightly dark gum line that is commonly seen on older crowns and give the appearance of a healthy natural tooth. You are welcome to contact the office of Celeste Eckerman DDS LLC at 775-782-2799 to ask our dentist if you should receive a dental crown in Minden, Nevada.
