Our crowns are made of the highest quality materials. We use 22k gold to hand craft each crown. Pure gold is 24k. As you can see this is as pure of gold one can use for crowns without the crown being too soft. Compare this with grills that are made mostly of 10k and 14k gold. Grills are made of too hard of gold to be left in the mouth. We actually have cases of clients coming in where the grills in their mouth have deformed the jaw bone!
Our white gold is made with the precious metal palladium. Much like platinum this metal is soft enough to be left in the mouth, but durable to last. Platinum is not cost effective so we use paladium. However, if you are willing to pay for the platinum, we can order it for you.
Our diamond settings are crafted with very high quality diamonds. Each setting is placed by a jeweler to make sure that it is professional. We are able to get any color diamond, ruby, emerald or any other gem you would like. Once again, the prices are subject to change depending on gem and metal used.
As you can see the list of products available are endless. If you can think it up, chances are we can make it.
