The Real Advantages of Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns have been used for many years in dentistry and not without good reason. So whether you’re undergoing treatment for dental implants in Richmond, or cosmetic restoration at a Harley Street specialist, there’s a pretty good chance that they will feature somewhere in the process. So why are they so popular? Let’s take a look.
Porcelain crowns have a wide number of uses due to their durable and natural looking form and these include:
Hiding cracked or chipped teeth
Preserving existing decaying teeth
Protection of a tooth after root canal surgery
Finishing off dental implants for that truly ‘real’ look, and finally…
Taking care of aesthetic imperfections in areas where dental bonding doesn’t work.
Dental porcelain is one tough material and when formed into dental crowns they can easily last for 15 years, or in some instances if cared for properly, twice as long.
Non-staining properties One of the great things about porcelain is that it has anti-staining properties meaning that when fitted as a crown, it won’t discolour. As long as a patient practices sound oral hygiene, then there’s no reason why it shouldn’t retain it’s original colour for many years to come.
As porcelain is naturally white it can look incredibly realistic. So much so in fact that when placed as a crown on a dental implant, and then it can be very hard for the normal ‘lay’ person to notice the difference. In fact if you’re undergoing treatment dental implants in Richmond, then here at Sheen Dental we go to painstaking lengths to make sure that your prosthetic crown is an exact match to the rest of your teeth in order to give that natural looking smile.
As you can see, porcelain is pretty much the material of choice for both dentists and patents alike and because of its outstanding properties in a wide number of areas, it’s very easy to see why.
