The porcelain crown is the restoration of choice when teeth are badly broken down or have old large fillings that need replacement—it strengthens the tooth, restoring the form, function and esthetics so they mimic nature.
The porcelain crows does not have the grey or black line on the margin since there is no dark metal in the crown, it won’t stain or change color, and when made by a talented ceramic artist mimics nature perfectly.
Although the porcelain crown is very strong, there are times when it needs to be reinforced with gold to prevent breakage. If someone grinds their teeth at night we may want to restore the back teeth with crowns that are porcelain fixed to gold so they can withstand more abuse without breaking. Dr. Bloom also uses porcelain fused to gold under long span bridges for the extra strength.
