[00:00:04.200] When I was 16, I worked in my dad's dental lab. [00:00:07.410] He specialized in making crowns. [00:00:10.330] Nowadays, with technology, we have all-porcelain crowns. [00:00:15.770] There's no metal. [00:00:16.880] Light passes through. [00:00:18.330] They look much more realistic. [00:00:20.957] With further technology, we now have the ability to prep a tooth [00:00:27.021] for a crown and make that crown all in the same appointment. [00:00:31.730] Anyone could be a good candidate for a crown. [00:00:34.640] Take care of your teeth, brush, floss. [00:00:37.570] Do what you're supposed to do, [00:00:39.370] and your restorations will last you a very long time.
