Gold Crowns - Designed/Partial

The advantage of gold is that as a metal, it does not need a lot of tooth structure reduction like porcelain. Designed gold is a lost art in this modern age with more full porcelain crowns as the doctor needs to have the talent to preserve areas of good tooth structure and be very precise for the fit of the crown. They can be designed not to show obviously in the smile line and have the beautiful anatomical structure for better bite and function.
