In the July 18, 2013 issue of The Paper I wrote about the immigrants who came to America between 1880-1924, the world’s greatest migration. This is a follow-up to that story.
Of course, there are many instances of the success achieved by immigrants in America. I chose to tell about this one because I know it best.
One spring day in 1997 my wife and I were driving on Long Island to visit some friends. On impulse, I turned off the highway and headed to St. Albans, a small community in New York City’s borough of Queens. When my parents moved to The Paper - 760.747.7119
St.Albans, it was an attractive community with linden trees— graceful, pear-shaped trees, all of them in a straight line along each block of the main street. And along its side streets were row after row of two-floor, pitched roof houses with small but well-kept front lawns.
Driving along the main street now, I barely could recognize the town. I hadn’t been there since 1972, when my parents’ cement garden ornament business had closed.
I pulled over to the curb and parked on Linden Blvd., near 197th Street where the business used to be. As I peered over the shoulder-high, iron-mesh fence, I winced. Weeds covered the broad lot
where my dad had displayed his statues, and the shop where he used to make them leaned at a precarious angle. It was impossible to tell that it had once been Potenz Garden Ornaments, one of the largest cement garden ornament businesses in New York State. It had all started during the Great Depression when, in 1937, we moved from the Bronx to St. Albans because my father learned that contractors on Long Island needed bricklayers.
One day, about a year after we moved to St. Albans, my parents spotted a “For Rent” sign at an empty store on Linden Blvd. and thought it would be a good place to start a business. So, for $125 a month, my parents rent-
ed the business, which had two rooms in the back; the two rooms became our living quarters (a kitchen and a combination dining room/bedroom). The business began as a gift shop where my mother sold wall ornaments and religious statues. Our inventory was small - a half dozen plaques on each wall, most of them religious scenes, and a few religious statues. And in the beginning, we had only two or three customers a day.
While my mother took care of the store, my father worked as a bricklayer, and after supper each night he made cement flower vases, using old molds that he had bought from a man who was going out of business. I remember falling asleep to the

rhythmic pounding of the iron bar my father used to compress the layers of semi-dry cement inside the molds. Gradually—very gradually, the business grew, thanks in large part to my father’s creativity. In the beginning, the garden ornaments were made from a mixture of regular cement and fine sand, but then he came up with the idea of adding marble dust to the mix. It gave the ornaments a crystalline finish, and the more an ornament weathered, the more the marble dust showed. As demand for his garden ornaments grew, he began designing his own garden ornaments, including original bird baths and fountains. Even when he made an ornament that was not his original design, he often improved it. One day, for example, while in upstate New York visiting a relative, my father spotted a lifesize plaster deer, which he bought and made a mold of it. When the first cement deer was cast it weighed about 400 pounds. Moving it required strength and ingenuity. Two 2 x

The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves. ••••• The phone rang at the firehouse just five minutes after the men had all retired for their afternoon nap. "It's a terrible blaze at my house," the voice frantically cried. "The flames are licking through the basement and the first floor. Pretty soon they'll ravage the entire place." "Did you try throwing water over it?" asked the fire chief.
4 boards were placed under the belly of the deer. My father and I took hold of one board, my brother Lou and Joe Tulley took the other—Joe’s father had died when he was young and Joe had become like part of our family. “Lift,” my father ordered.
We groaned in unison and staggered toward the display lot. My arms felt like they were being pulled out of their sockets. Mercifully, my father gave the order to put it down. As we rubbed our sore arms, my father eyed the deer. The next day he took a large tin drum and placed it in the belly of the mold, which resulted in reducing the deer’s weight by about half. In time, it became a family business. After school, in addition to my brother and I working in the shop, my sister Nellie also worked in the shop, painting the religious statues.
My parents made a good business team. My father turned out the garden ornaments and, as fast as he made them, my mother sold them. Long before the term was invented, I reckon my mother knew just about all there was to know about “interpersonal skills.” She had excep-

As they knocked upon a neighbor's door, the little girl bowed low saying, "This is my husband and I'm his wife. We're visiting you, you know.”. "Come in, come in," the lady at the door said, "and take yourself a seat. I'll bring you both some lemonade and something good to eat."
She gave them each a tall glass and a cookie on a plate. Later, she offered them a second cup of frosty lemonade.
"Oh no, thank you," the wee lass said, as she took the small boy's hand, "We really have to go now. My husband wet his pants." ••••• The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness.
tional empathy for others—a knack for putting herself in their shoes, no matter their age or social background. The empathy was evident from the moment they walked into the display lot, greeting them with “Hello” or “Good day” and a smile. And because of her remarkable memory, she established an immediate rapport that would have been the envy of any salesman. Saying to the people as they came into the display lot: “How are your children?” “You were here in the spring—you buy flowers.” “Did you have a boy? I thought you would, the way you looked.”
“How is your husband—he feel better now?”
Sincere in her comments and questions, my mother made selling an art form. I often saw remarkable (my father called them miraculous) transformations take place: a scowling customer striding into the lot, and leaving later with a smile and wave to my mother.
And it was she who usually handled the business side of Potenz (a name, incidentally that was an abbreviated form of Potenza,

My father came out of the shop only when it became very busy, and he had little patience with customers. Temperamentally, he wasn’t suited for sales, and he disliked taking time away from his work. Quality is a necessary part of success in business, and my father took pride in every piece that came out of his shop. Unlike many of the cement garden ornaments sold today, you would not have found a mold seam or pitted surface on any of his ornaments.
Another necessary part of success in business is hard work; my parents gave new meaning to hard work. For them, working ten to twelve hours a day was routine, and I don’t remember them ever taking a vacation. And they worked at an incredible pace—as though time was running out.

I believed they were psychologically scarred by what they, as well as millions of others, had gone through in the Great Depression. For many Americans today, the Great Depression is a vague event that happened some time ago. They have little idea of the misery of that twelve-year period (1929-1941.) One in four Americans—fifteen million— were out of work. And unable to meet their mortgage payments, many families were evicted from their homes.
The Depression ended when World War II began (millions went to work at defense plants), but many who experienced that long economic calamity were left with searing, haunting memories, including my parents: my father shoveling snow in bone-chilling cold for the WPA (the national government’s Work Progress Administration, which in the 1930s gave more than eight million Americans temporary work; my parents at oOrchard Beach in the Bronx—in one hand, my mother holding a
In World War II, 11.2% of the nation served in four years.
In Vietnam , 4.3% served in 12 years (of the conflict).
Since 2001, only 0.45% of our population has served in the Global War on Terror. These are unbelievable statistics.
Over time, fewer and fewer people have shouldered more and more of the burden and it is only getting worse.
Our troops were sent to war in Iraq by a Congress consisting of 10% veterans with only one person having a child in the military. Taxes did not increase to pay for the war. War bonds were not sold. Gas was not regulated. In fact, the average citizen was asked to sacrifice nothing, and has sacrificed nothing unless they have chosen to out of the goodness of their hearts. The only people who have
small, tin pail with ammonia solution, her other hand gripping mine, my father squeezing the camera’s shutter bulb, removing the film and dipping it into the solution, waving it a moment to dry, then handing it to the bathing suit-clad customer for five cents. I believe such experiences forged in my parents a fierce determination to succeed—to never again go through what they had endured in the Depression.
Well, because of my father’s creativity and the quality of his work, as well as my mother’s business savvy, Potenz’s business continued to grow, and then something happened on Long Island right after World War II that brought the sale of my father’s garden ornaments up to new heights.
A builder named Levitt began putting up two-bedroom houses on Long Island, some fifteen miles east of where my parents’ business was located. Levitt figured that with millions of returning servicemen there would be a great demand for affordable houses. He was right. People rushed to buy the Levittown houses. By

1951, more than 17,000 houses had gone up in Levittown. Soon other builders began housing developments on the island and by the mid-1950s, much of Long Island had become a huge suburban sprawl. Many of the new homeowners were apartment dwellers from New York City, and now that they had their own homes, they wanted to dress up their lawn and backyard. So, they headed for Potenz Garden Ornaments. As a result, the weekends in particular were bedlam. We took turns eating in the kitchen, often standing up as we ate. By nine o’clock in the evening, we could barely stay awake. During the spring, summer and fall we were open seven days a week. In the winter, we sold Christmas trees, up to 1,000 of them in three weeks.
Through the winter, my father worked in the shop, making his garden figures—to allow the cement to dry, the molds grouped around a pot-bellied stove. He was happy in the shop, away from the customers, following his creative bent. My father died in 1972 and the

business died with him. Long before then, my brother and I had followed our own inner callings.
Now, as I drove away from Linden Blvd. I felt it had been a mistake to stop where my parents’ business had been. It had served only to remind me that my mother (who died in 1995) and father were gone—and so, too, all they had accomplished. As I drove along the side streets of St. Albans, heading for the highway that would take us to our friends’ house in eastern Long Island, we came to a stop sign. My wife Fanny pointed. “Look, Dan.” In the center of a front lawn was a bird bath. I recognized its spiral column. It was my father’s. I stared at it in surprise.
We continued down the street. Fanny pointed to a house on my left. On either side of the front steps was a cement flower vase. I slowed down.
“Your father’s?” Fanny asked.
“Yes,” I wanted to answer, but all I could manage was a nod. In each of the vases, geraniums were growing.

Battle Lines Drawn: ACLU versus City of Escondido
Escondido city officials have rejected a public records request from the American Civil Liberties Union seeking details on the city’s severance agreement with former Police Chief Jim Maher.
City officials have repeatedly declined to reveal the circumstances that prompted Maher’s mysterious retirement last year.
In a letter received by the ACLU on Monday, the city said any severance agreement with Maher is exempt from disclosure because it’s a peace officer record. The city cited the same reason in denying a public records request filed last year by both The Paper and U-T San Diego seeking the details of any settlement with Maher.
In the ACLU request, David Loy, legislative director for the local ACLU chapter, said “the public has a strong interest in disclosure of the agreement” because it could stymie
Maher’s plans to run for Escondido mayor or City Council. Escondido Mayor Sam Abed confirmed to UT-San Diego last month that Maher signed a severance agreement that essentially precludes him from running for office in Escondido.
Rumors abound that Maher plans on moving back to Escondido and running for either a council seat or for the position of Mayor. The ACLU’s request to the city argued that peace officer records are only exempt when revealing them would be an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. The ACLU said that would include medical records, performance appraisals, complaints and investigations — but not a severance agreement. The city’s response doesn’t address the ACLU’s distinction. It simply declares that any documents relating to Maher’s departure “are confidential peace officer personnel records and are exempt from

Oceanside police reported that last Wednesday two people were injured when they were attacked during a home invasion. One victim was taken to a hospital, the other was treated at the scene.
The incident was reported about 7 p.m. at a house on North Clementine Street near Windward Way. The victims, a man and a male teen, were in the home at the time. Police were investigating whether the incident was a robbery or attempted robbery. One suspect was detained and being questioned, and others are being sought, according to police.
Florida Man Accused of Luring Escondido Teen in Court
Tony Lee McLeod, 36, of Florida, is charged with one count of enticing a minor with the intent of sexual activity. The 14-year old Escondido teen was returned safely to his family after Escondido police traced McLeod to Florida where both he and the teen were taken into custody. McLeod has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail but a bail hearing will be held to determine if he qualifies.
If convicted, McLeod faces a minimum of 10 years in prison, but the maximum is life in prison. He has been held without bail since his arrest June 11 after arriving in Tampa, Fla.

tion thanks to the new district election format that will call for council members to be elected from within their own districts. As a result of a lawsuit under California’s Voting Rights Act, a 2002 law designed to give minorities a greater voice in government, Escondido joins several other cities across the state in going the district election route.
While the mayor will still be elected via a general election, the four other council seats will, under the new plan, be elected from four separate districts.
John Masson and Ed Gallo are up for election in 2014; Morasco and Diaz in 2016. The 2014 election may be interesting in that both Masson and Gallo live within the same general area. Depending upon how the final district boundaries come out, one or the other could lose the council seat - or an entirely new candidates from those districts might win. Usually, incumbents have the advantage in both financial support, name recognition,
and a track record to which either credit or blame will be attached - but, given the new ground rules, anything can happen.
While Diaz is not up for election till 2016 she has already announced she will challenge Abed for the mayor’s seat. This race becomes even more interesting in that former Chief of Police Jim Maher has told close confidantes that he intends to move back to Escondido and run for , or, possibly, a council seat. Maher’s entry could be complicated as a result of his severance agreement with the city of Escondido which may preclude him from running. That issue remains to be decided, probably by the courts. Because Republican voters outnumber Democrats in Escondido by a 3-to-2 margin, it appears likely that the new council will remain conservative.

Editor’s Note: Mea Culpa! Due to a major editing error an incorrect column was published in the July25th issue under Pastor Sam Brumit’s column, “The Pastor Says . . .” To see the original column, incorrectly attributed to Pastor Brumit, go here:
http://issuu.com/awodigitaledition/docs/the_paper_072513?e= 2076238/4194168 - go to page 15). The column was actually a Letter to the Editor from writer Barbara Saad, which was accidentally placed in the space normally reserved for Pastor Brumit. To make up for our editing error we gladly run the following special edition of . . .
The Pastor Says . . .
Jesus never judged a person by their appearance or clothing etc. After all, God doesn’t look on the outer appearance but on the heart. I hope I never judge a kid because he or she has his head down, their pants hang low or because they have a tattoo. Not everyone is well dressed, with something to smile about, etc. Still yet, they matter to God.
Pastor Sam Brumit M31t6 Church - San Marcos
A Response to the Column Misattributed to Me
As I was sitting in a restaurant with Judy having lunch we noticed the latest edition of “The Paper” and thumbed through it to the column I had written. I was surprised to find that my picture, etc. were there, but I had not written the article entitled “Trayvon Martin” attributed to me. Further, it was in many ways the opposite of what I write or believe. Let me explain. I love how God has made everyone different and everyone is unique; all races loved and valued by Him. They are all precious in His sight. Anything that points the finger at “them” always causes me sadness.
Of all the words attributed to me, these made me the saddest: “If you want equality, walk, dress and act like you belong, because you do.” In the words of Martin Luther King “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin (and I would add their appearance), but by the content of their character.”
King went on to say: “And when this happens, when we let freedom ring… from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.”
Until we get there I’ll continue to share His love. Thoughts?

Cassidy is a stunningly beautiful 1 year old spayed female German Shepherd. She was pulled from the Baldwin Animal Services shelter by the Puppy Coalition Foundation in May.
With a proper introduction she is good with people and other dogs. She is healthy, has all her shots and is in need of nothing but leash training.
She would be best in a home without children only because she has not been around them. She would make a wonderful companion and protector. Her original YouTube video can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/w atch?v=EJ6F_RNUl_g Her only rehoming fees are the costs we incurred in paying the adoption, some kenneling and transport fees. If you think Cassidy looks like a good candidate for you, call Bruce at 760-612-9156 for an adoption application from The Puppy Coalition Foundation.
Queenie is a 2-year-old spayed female pit bull mix, ID 72653. When Queenie first came to EHS in April, she was suffering from what appeared to be rattlesnake bites on her neck and face.

Queenie enjoys rolling in the grass, giving kisses, and she absolutely loves cuddling. On top of everything else, she's beautiful! Queenie is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $25 adoption fee in August includes spay, microchip, upto-date vaccinations and vet exam.

She is not losing hair, as the photo may suggest, but has straight brown hair interspersed with her white curls. She is a joy to have around the house and will always have a place in her foster mom's heart. Spayed and u-t-d on shots. Rescue. Adoption fee. 760-2161616.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Outstanding Rating for San Marcos’ Building Safety Division Department
The City’s building division recently received an outstanding rating of “3” on the Building Code Effectiveness Grading Schedule (BCEGS) by the Insurance Service Office (ISO), a fourpoint improvement from the last survey performed in 2008. Purposed to assess the building codes in effect within a particular community and how the community enforces its building codes, surveys are scored on a scale of one to ten, with one being exemplary.
San Marcos’ survey results demonstrated that improvements are the direct result of well-trained and certified staff coupled with the division’s ability to provide proficient and thorough code review. The ISO survey assesses the quality of building codes adopted and how effectively codes are enforced by the City.
According to ISO, municipalities that have effective, well-enforced codes have safer buildings capable of better weathering catastrophic events like earthquakes, windstorms and other natural disasters.

“Cactus Jack” - A friend of Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth The Computer Factory thecomputerfactoryltd.com
Cactus Jack Filner?
Cactus Jack Trosper owns the Rainbow Computer Emporium in the back country East of Rainbow. Cactus has no redeeming qualities. He’ll lie to your face and cheat you if he can and hates just about everything. His sun blasted face is twisted into a permanent cynical scowl. He smells of tobacco, whiskey and old leather. With his sweat stained Stetson, dusty denims and dirt caked cowboy boots Jack looks more like a down on his luck prospector than a computer store owner. Jack makes a living by cheating his computer store customers and selling computer related stuff at swap meets. He comes into town once or twice a month to dumpster-dive at Fry’s. He salvages Apple logos and pastes them on old cell phones, tablets and
‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 7
You find a business that has very low turnover, that normally indicates very successful management. Happy employees stay . . . and the customers benefit, as well as ownership. ••••• Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth, owners of The Computer Factory in San Marcos, were enjoying a lovely July evening in the outdoor café at San Marcos’ “Olde California Coffee House and Eatery.” The entertainment, The Lacemakers, was a wonderful Celtic and Folk quartet. At ten oclock, just as the Lacemakers were preparing to perform their last encore, a group of about twenty five men and women dressed in long sleeved satin shirts strolled out of the San Marcos Brewery and massed on the sidewalk facing the entertainers just outside the low stone wall of the outdoor café. They applauded enthusi-
computers and sells them at swap meets. Jack say’s “folks that buy Apples ain’t got a lick of sense.” He claims he once sold a broken etch-asketch with a pasted on Apple logo for $300 to a high school art teacher. When Jack’s in town he often drops by our store. Nome despises Cactus Jack and usually manages to hide in the bathroom till he’s gone. Last week Jack walked in. Nome was reading the paper and didn’t notice him until he was standing across the counter smack- dab in front of her. “Hey sweetheart, c’mon out and give ole Cactus a big hug,” he thundered. Nome nearly jumped out of her skin. When she recovered her composure she spat out “hello Cactus.” It sounded just like Jerry Sienfeld’s “Hello Newman.” The cool thing about Cactus Jack is that he knows Nome hates him but he just doesn’t care.
Nome had been reading the latest front page story on Mayor Bob Filner’s problems. “Them folks in San Diego must be stupider than a butt full of buckshot,” Jack mused looking down at the paper. “Why, because they elected Filner mayor?” Nome asked.
Nome stared incredulously at Jack. “You think they are stupid for wanting to get rid of this arrogant, lying, bully who sexually abuses women?”
“Oh come on sweetcakes, everybody knowd all that stuff from the git go. It come out in the campaign that he beat up a lady baggage handler and then said, “I’m a congressman. I can do anything I want.” Why Hell. that ain’t arrogance and bullying, that’s being self-confident, telling it like it is and not takin crap off’n nobody. That’s the main reason folks elected him.”
Nome looked stunned. “What about all those poor women he offended.”
Jack slapped his knee and hooted, “offended my ankle! They ain’t nuthin but a gaggle of hypersensitive cougars that want everybody to think that at least somebody finds em attractive. Nancy Pelosi and Donna Fry is the ones that got em all stirred up. I got a feelin the only reason they got a burr under their saddles is cause Filner never made a pass at them. I don’t blame him neither. Shows he ‘s got some class.” “I don’t care what you say Jack” said
Nome angrily, “Filner has to go.” Jack smirked, “I hate to tell you this cookie, but Filner ain’t goin nowhere. You got to remember he’s a Dimocrat. By the time he gets back from rehab them folks is goin to forgive and forgit. Remember that guy that cheated on his wife by seducing a low level employee barely out of her teens in the oval office, lied to everyone about it, then perjured himself to a grand jury and got hisself impeached and disbarred. Now he’s the grand old man of the Dimocrat party, they love him. If they can forget what Clinton did, how hard’s it gonna to be to forgive ole Bob for squeezing some butts and tryin to steal a kiss or two? Bob’s problem is that he don’t git it yet that he’s nothing but an old goat that’s uglier than a three day hangover.” “So you want Bob Filner to keep his job?” asked Nome wearily.
“Heck no. I hope they fire him. He got no money and nobody would hire him. I’d offer him a job right off. I think me and him could clean up working the swap meets together.” Said Jack wistfully. “Oh yeah,” said Nome “that would be a dream team.”
Jack snorted derisively. “Naw they was right to elect him, they’re stupid fer wantin to git rid of him.”
astically at the conclusion of the Lacemakers last song. When someone asked them what they do, their leader said. “Here’s what we do.” One of the group turned a boom box on and the group launched into a fantastic five minute jazz rendition of “Route Sixty-Six” The forty or so patrons and the entertainers in the café listened with grins of amazement and erupted in a thunderous standing ovation at the end. As the “flash mob” melted anonymously into the parking lot, Coffee House owner Greg Garcia was heard to say, “Anything can happen at The Olde California Coffee House.”
We still don’t know who they were.

You know your country will never pay back what you've given up. You know that the populace at large will never truly understand or appreciate what you have done for them.
You know that in some circles, you will be thought as less than normal for having worn the uniform. But you do it anyway. You do what the greatest men and women of this country have done since 1775 - YOU SERVED . Just that decision alone makes you part of an elite group. "Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." – Winston Churchill

Remembering What God Can Do for You! Pastor Chico Goff Mission Hills Church
Some of the greatest messages in life come out of our overwhelming obstacles.
To have the hope, confidence, and power to overcome, we must remember how God has helped His people in the past (Heb. 10:32-36) and extended His promise to rescue us from present circumstances (Deut. 6:12). Outside of my office there is an orange bucket with smooth stones. Each with a word or two written on it reminding the staff member who wrote it how God helped us in the past. Why? We are reminding ourselves what God has done for us. We are reminding ourselves that current
When Joshua was leading God’s people into the Promised Land, they were afraid and they faced obstacles (Joshua 4:1-7). Some wanted to return to the mess of the past. Others were scared of what the future might bring. And no one knew how to cross the raging Jordan River before them (3:15). God had told Joshua what to do get across the river (3:13). Joshua obeyed and God parted the raging body of water. His people didn’t walk around the obstacle. God walked them right through the middle of it. To never forget how God helped them, they pulled stones from the bottom of the river and made a memorial (4:2-3). Their mess had become their message. God had helped His people again and there was now a memorial to tell everyone the message of who God is and what He had done. Today God has other stones to proclaim His message. According to 1 Peter 2:5, every Christian is a “living stone.” Are you in one of life’s messes? Does God want you to testify about Him through your current test? If you are going to walk through the difficulty before you, then you must remember God is the business of removing the obstacles.

Ceramic (Non-Metallic) Crown Smile Enhancements
Ceramic, Non-Metallic Crowns are the current rave in Cosmetic Smile Enhancements. Everyone wants teeth that, once restored, “Brighten Your Smile” and give you that overall “Glow” your face has begun to
miss as we age and begin to wrinkle and tarnish a bit. The old metal crowns had been replaced in the mid-1960’s by porcelain jacket crowns. But by the mid-1980’s these crowns showed a 25% chance of failing after 11 years and in posterior teeth it was much greater! Fortunately, in 1983 Horn, Simonsen and others introduced the first bonded porcelain crowns. However, although these crowns didn’t fracture as often, they frequently came loose from their underlying teeth because their dental cements didn’t adhere well to dentin. Today, along with the development of newer cements, the modern day all-ceramic crowns have arrived. These new systems not onely stay bonded to teeth well, they can also be categorized into two groups: those that are translucent and very natural in appearance and those that are more opaque having a higher-strength core that resist extreme chewing forces. Both are fabricated without a metal
backing and therefore do not show their metal (called “shine through”) up by the gum line as their owner’s gums recede with age.
There are several companies producing various formulations of these ceramics and supplying them to the dental labs for crowns and bridges. Just to keep it simple, the opaque, stronger crowns are made from a Zirconia core and used in the rear teeth because they can withstand the stronger forces exerted in that region. The translucent, more color adjustable crowns are made from a pressured ceramic and are thus mostly used for front teeth. For those who have very strong bites and/or grind at night we now have a third
option which allows us to “layer” porcelain onto the Zirconia based crowns resulting in stronger front teeth that won’t chip with their nighttime grinding!
In general the dentist will pick the appropriate cosmetic crown for you based on several factors including how much support is needed, whether the teeth are discolored, how much of the tooth is remaining, whether it will show when you’re speaking, eating, smiling, etc., as well as how much clearance you have with the opposing teeth, where your gum line is located, and finally, the color of your teeth. If you have an “unusual” color disposition, then the translucent crown may be the best choice!
