The Benefits of Using Porcelain Crowns

Dental Implants Richmond

For anyone considering dental implants in Richmond, then there’s a pretty good chance that the implantation process is likely feature a porcelain crown. They can be used for a number of teeth problems including

  • Capping off dental implants

  • Covering chipped and cracked teeth

  • Making good aesthetic imperfections where techniques such as veneers and dental bonding won’t work

  • Capping teeth for protection after bridge work

As you can see they have a number of uses, but what are their main benefits?

Incredible durability

When we think of porcelain we often think of fine porcelain china that’s light and delicate. However dental porcelain is about as durable a material as you can get. So much so that if a porcelain crown is cared for properly then it can easily last for 15 years or more.

It doesn’t stain

Another major benefit of porcelain is that it doesn’t stain. For this reason it’s perfect for tooth-coloured restorations since no amount of coffee or red wine is going to change the colour. That said, despite their anti-staining properties porcelain crowns can also be colour-matched exactly to fit the shade of your existing teeth. A more natural look is often far better than a brilliant white crown that’s likely to stick out like a sore thumb.

Easily shaped and moulded

Dental porcelain is extremely easy to shape and mould, meaning that when anyone has a dental implant in Richmond, they’re going to get a porcelain crown that matches in exactly with their existing natural teeth.

Improved oral function

Dental porcelain is almost as strong as natural tooth enamel and as such is easily strong enough to withstand the usual wear and tear of chewing and eating. This means that when a person has a replica tooth replacement using a porcelain crown they can feel safe in the knowledge that they can chew and eat normally without having to worry.


Porcelain crowns are designed to look and feel just as your normal teeth would and as such can be cared for in a similar fashion. This means no complicated cleaning and maintenance routines. Instead simple and convenient brushing and flossing is all it takes to keep your crowns looking good.
