Crown Selector Tool

We offer a variety of crown materials because there’s no one ideal material for every indication. Although many factors, including proximity to other restorations, available clearance and health issues impact your final choice of crown, we’ve made it easy to select the restoration that’s most often ideal for the region in which it will sit.

Treatment options are prioritized from the most ideal solution at the top of the list, to our least recommended option at the bottom.
