If your dentist tells you that you need a crown then you have a decision to make.
What type of crown do you want to get?
Well, that depends.
The strongest is gold. With gold there is almost zero chance of fracture, chipping, or failure of any kind.
However, when you smile people are going to see the gold in your mouth.
With a white crown no one will ever know you have one. If the color is matched properly they are invisible.
White crowns however, do have the chance of fracture, chipping or failing in some other manner.
The choice is yours. Consult your dentist to see what is right for you.
