What Is A Porcelain Crown?

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Barbara Ketchum
What Is A Porcelain Crown?Porcelain crowns are created to recreate the previous, natural appearance of your teeth. Since porcelain crowns are made to mimic your natural teeth, as opposed to metal-based crowns, they place more emphasis on aesthetic benefits. This is crucial if you need a crown for your front teeth.

Treatment process?

Treatment for a porcelain crown often needs two visits. This is so that your tooth may be properly prepared for the porcelain crown during the initial appointment. This entails locating any weak areas of the tooth, removing them, and obtaining impressions to fit a temporary crown. Your new custom-made crown will be fitted during your second appointment once your temporary one is removed.

Metal vs. Porcelain Crowns

Cobalt-chromium, nickel-chromium, and other metal-based alloys are frequently used to make metal crowns. Metal crowns are well-known for their durability and have been used in dentistry for a lot of years. Compared to porcelain crowns, they are the least prone to deteriorate over time or get chipped or broken. Since metal crowns are hidden in the back of the mouth, the majority of people elect to have them there. Contrarily, porcelain crowns, which are available in either all-ceramic or all-porcelain varieties, are made to resemble the natural appearance of your teeth. Both are safe options for patients with metal allergies and can be utilized for both front and back teeth.

Should I get an implant or a crown?

An artificial or prosthetic root known as a dental implant performs the same function as the root of a natural tooth. Where the root would be, the implant is inserted into the bone and integrated with the jawbone to provide a long-lasting and stable fit. In a sense, your implant serves as the base for your dental crown. They work together to mimic the structure and appearance of a natural tooth. While a crown can repair a portion of a broken tooth, it cannot fully restore a tooth without the use of an implant. For more information call us today.
