Dental Crowns In Austin, Texas
What are crowns made of?
Metal/Gold – Metal crowns can be a mixture of various materials, including gold, nickel, and palladium. These last long in terms of wear and tear and are the easiest to apply, but they can have a metallic taste and are somewhat conspicuous. Metal is rarely used and usually just done if the patient prefers a gold crown.
Does getting a crown take long?
A local anesthetic is applied so that the process will be painless. However, it is normal to feel some soreness or sensitivity for a little while after the treatment. The process should take about one to two hours.
