Dental Crowns

One of the most commonly used dental appliances is the dental crown, also referred to as a “cap.” Crowns are extremely versatile and used in a variety of dental procedures, including as the artificial teeth in dental implants and bridges, and on their own to protect teeth that have undergone a root canal or as an alternative to protect what remains of a tooth after a large amount of decay is removed. Crowns serve important functions in dentistry, and Dr. Mobley is pleased to offer these versatile restorations to her Austin, TX patients.

Get Started

Types of Crowns

Dr. Mobley typically places all ceramic porcelain crowns except for the patients that suffer from Bruxism, then she may opt for gold crowns on the molars. Dr. Mobley always considers both aesthetics and function for her patients. Even Though porcelain closer resembles natural teeth Gold may be a better choice for patients that have a strong bite and are prone to breaking dental restorations. Metal crowns, on the other hand, are typically used with molars located in the back of the mouth. Please contact us to see which type of dental crown is best for you.

Although the different types of crowns have different purposes, both metal and porcelain crowns are very durable, often lasting for many, many years.



This patient came to me with a chief complaint of, “my midline is not straight and I’m starting to develop a lisp”. We decided best way to correct her problem and match to existing porcelain restorations was to replace six upper crowns canine to canine.

She wore temporary crowns for about 3 weeks of the proposed new design while the lab fabricated the new Emax Porcelain crowns. We delivered Emax Crowns HT BL2.

The final product turned out beautiful. We also made her a new retainer after treatment to assure her teeth do not move. This is always recommended with any cosmetic case.
