If you have a damaged, weak or vulnerable tooth or teeth, then a porcelain crown may be a great option for you. Consider some of the advantages of this type of dental crown:
- Attractive, natural appearance
- Durable and strong
- Secure bond with tooth enamel
- Function like a natural tooth
For cosmetic reasons, an all-porcelain crown can be the perfect restoration. Because its color is matched to the natural color of your teeth, the crown will not stick out in your smile or be apparent. Instead, it will allow you to smile with all the confidence that comes with beautiful, natural-looking teeth with no missing teeth gaps. But porcelain crowns are not just cosmetically advantageous. They are strong and durable as well.
Porcelain crowns are often used on teeth that are the most visible when you smile, at the front of your mouth. Although all-porcelain dental crowns are very strong, they aren't always the best option to stand up to the forces exerted by molars. To restore teeth in the back of your mouth, our dentists may recommend a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, although it's not unheard of to use an all-porcelain crown on your back teeth; the only way to know the best means of restoring your teeth is to talk to our experienced dentists.
