The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns: Tooth-Colored Restorative Work

A porcelain dental crownSevere chips, cracks, and fractures can lead to serious pain and issues with the overall aesthetics of your smile. Thankfully the team at our Memphis dental care center can use dental restorations to rebuild broken or decayed teeth.

For major dental fractures and decay, the ideal option tends to be dental crowns. We'd like to discuss the use of porcelain dental crowns, a treatment options that combines the benefits of restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

About Porcelain Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns are like regular metal dental crowns but they are made of tooth-colored materials. These porcelain crowns essentially restore a person's ability to bite and chew as well as the aesthetics of a smile.

Porcelain dental crowns are an excellent option for restoring damaged teeth that have been affected by severe decay, fractures, and other kinds of damage.

Improved Aesthetics Over Metal Dental Crowns

The most obvious benefit of porcelain dental crowns is that they look just like your real teeth. The dental lab that crafts the dental crown carefully custom fabricate the restoration to ensure it fits properly and complements the adjacent teeth in terms of shape and color.

The tooth-colored materials blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, allowing you to speak, smile, laugh, and go about your day without feeling self-conscious about others seeing a metal restoration.

Good Durability for Regular Wear and Tear

While the tooth-colored materials may not be the same as metal, they are durable nonetheless. Patients with porcelain dental crowns in place can bite and chew their food without worries. Porcelain dental crowns can withstand the regular wear and tear that your teeth go through on a daily basis.

While porcelain crowns are not unbreakable, they will be able to last for many years with proper oral hygiene and care. Should a porcelain dental crown require replacement, the process is rather simple and straightforward.

Greater Self-Confidence About Your Smile

Porcelain dental crowns can greatly improve your overall self-confidence. With a beautiful smile restored and improved dental health overall, you will not have to worry about feeling self-conscious or avoiding foods that you love so much.

Many times, people who get porcelain dental crowns experience a renewed sense of self and overall well-being, which helps them face the day.

Ideal Uses for Porcelain Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns tend to be most ideal for the front teeth or any prominent teeth in your smile. This makes sense given the aesthetic benefits of these restorations. Patients should have enough healthy tooth structure in place to be capped by the crown.
