I got a gold crown put on a my tooth today. The worst thing about the whole experience was wearing the temporary crown for two weeks, I had nothing but trouble with it. Anyway there are three reasons I got a gold crown instead of a porcelain one.
#3 - Gold is antimicrobial.
#2 - Dad said to get a gold one. Now when my husband wants to buy me something gold I'm smart enough to jump at the chance, even if it is where no one can see it, I know it's there. Who knows when it something gold will come my way again. Truth be told I would rather have new windows or something else more useful than gold jewelry.
#1 - When I was looking at the pamphlet they sent home with me I said that they make crowns out of porcelain so they look like your teeth and Spark says, "You mean like a toilet?" That pretty much sealed the deal right there.
