What is a Porcelain Crown?
Porcelain crowns, ceramic crowns, or porcelain teeth, as they are sometimes referred to, are an option for people who have damaged teeth. These are custom-made caps or crowns that are bonded to the tooth, fitting over it and restoring the tooth to its original size, strength, and function.
All porcelain crowns are used when a large portion of tooth structure has been lost. The loss can be due to breakage, tooth decay, root canal, or a large filling has failed. Crowns without metal are preferred in the front of the mouth. The non-metal versions are beautiful and appear real. There are many types used in different situations depending on the patient’s needs.
All porcelain crowns have many benefits
This type of all porcelain crown is Emax This patient requested a clean, uniform, and natural smile. She helped us create something that matched her goals. We prefer to use ceramic versions over those made with metal. The dark line at the gum line of crowns containing metal won’t develop. Less drilling is needed because ceramic restorations are not as thick. They will not stain or change color. Ceramics are more bio-compatible than metal which may reduce gum recession.
