and do they look natural or can you tell that is not your tooth?
One time I went to a club and I noticed this one person with all their top teeth done with crowns it had to be because it was dark and they were under a black light and was smiling and laughing like with no care in the world poor person if only they knew...they looked kind of black it looked weird...I felt bad for them.

I'm an EDDA (expanded duties dental assistant)... well, before I had kids anyway! :) I've seen some REALLY good crown work, but I've also seen some really bad. It all depends on your dentist and the lab he uses. More often than not, they look pretty natural.
The reason they don't show up in blacklight is because they are actually porcelain fused to metal (the metal gives it strength.)
The best option for a cosmetic fix is veneers. They look VERY natural, and not as much of the tooth has to be drilled down to apply them. However, if a tooth has a large filling, or has been root canaled, it can't be vanered... the only option is a crown.

I have 11 crowns including my front teeth (due to an accident) and they look very natural. I've had them 17 years and never had a problem with them.
