What Is a Porcelain Crown?
On your natural teeth, the crown comprises the portion of the tooth visible above the gum line. Should the natural tooth become damaged or decayed, the dentist affixes a fabricated, synthetic dental crown over the damaged tooth. Dental crowns cover the entire tooth’s surface above the gum line.
Porcelain crowns refer to one type of dental crown. Their translucent color and natural-looking appearance make porcelain one of the most popular materials for dental prosthetics.
Types of Dental Crowns
Dentists commonly use several types of materials to fabricate dental crowns. Heart of the City Dental will explain the benefits and drawbacks of each material during your consultation. Regardless of the material you choose, dental crowns help restore the function and structural integrity of your mouth.
The benefits of dental crowns include the following:
- Repairs and strengthens the structure of your teeth
- Improves the ability to speak
- Restores your ability to bite and chew
- Protects dental fillings from falling out
- Works in conjunction with other dental treatments
The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns make an extremely popular option because of their natural appearance and enamel-like properties. Other types of dental crowns include the following:
- Ceramic crowns
- Metal crowns
- Porcelain-plated metal crowns
- Gold crowns
While the style of a gold or silver crown may be appealing for some individuals, porcelain crowns offer the best option for anyone who wants their crown to match the natural color of their surrounding teeth.
In addition to their cosmetic appeal, porcelain crowns are durable and can last up to 10 years with proper care.
Making a Porcelain Crown
The cosmetic dentists at Heart of the City Dental will take multiple dental impressions, which we send to a professional lab for custom fabrication to ensure a perfect fit with your natural teeth. We will place a temporary crown over the damaged tooth to prevent further damage. When your porcelain crown is ready, we remove the temporary crown and replace it with your new permanent porcelain crown, making sure that the shape and color match your natural teeth.
