A General Dentist job is to make sure you have a great, healthy smile. 

When a patient gets a crown it's usually one of two situations. The first reason:  the cavity was so large that a conventional filling wouldn't work. The second would be that the patient broke a tooth, usually eating something or grinding. Conventional Porcelain on Metal crowns are a tried and true material. The inside is a metal coping that gives the crown support and it is what directly touches your tooth. The white part you see is called porcelain, and it is layered on the metal coping. Just like how a house is built on foundation. The problem with Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns is that after the years your gums drop called recession. Which exposes the black line on the bottom on your crown. Though not bad for your tooth, it leaves a very distinctive smile that some may become embarrassed.
