What You Should Know About Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain Crowns are essentially artificial teeth coverings that are custom-made to cover a damaged tooth. Also referred to by many people in the industry as ‘caps,’ these crowns are designed to preserve teeth and/or restore their previous functionality and appearance. They can be used to cover a broken or chipped tooth, as well as hide a tooth that has been irreversibly damaged by excessive tooth decay. For the most part, porcelain crowns are the most popular choice of dental solution for tooth protection. Crowns are often used on patients whose teeth necessitate added assistance structure-wise and long-term protection for cavity fillings.
Unlocking the Beauty and Functionality of Your Smile with Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns, also known as 'caps,' are tailor-made artificial coverings designed to protect and restore damaged teeth. Widely favored for tooth preservation, they offer conservative and convenient solutions for patients requiring added structural support and long-term protection, particularly for cavity fillings.
Key Features of Porcelain Crowns:
Versatile Protection: Ideal for covering broken, chipped, or irreversibly damaged teeth, porcelain crowns are a popular choice for both function and aesthetics.
Conservative Approach: Applied with dental adhesive, porcelain crowns stand out for their conservative nature compared to metal-ceramic and gold alloy alternatives.
Reviving Smiles: Renowned for their color and strength, porcelain crowns effectively revive dull-looking teeth, maintaining a natural appearance.
Stability for Dental Work: Beyond aesthetics, these crowns play a crucial role in stabilizing dental bridges and protecting dental implants from destabilization.
Fitting Process: Typically requiring two appointments, the fitting process involves cleaning and preparing the tooth, creating a mold, and applying a temporary crown during the initial visit. The final crown is fitted and cemented during the second visit.
Fabrication Advancements: While laboratory fabrication takes a week or two, technological advancements, including 3D imaging and digital radiography, enable on-the-spot crafting of porcelain crowns.
Natural Look and Feel: Boasting an almost translucent quality similar to natural enamel, porcelain crowns closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
Durability with Care: Although not as durable as metal or gold crowns, well-maintained porcelain crowns can last over 20 years, requiring regular flossing and brushing for longevity.
