It depends...: On what type of crown. If there is a metal base, then no.

Depends: If you mean whether xrays pass through a crown or are blocked, it depends on the type of material the crown is made from. If it is stainless steel, they do pass through. If it is gold, they are often blocked. (show up as white on an xray film).
