Benefits of Ceramic Crowns
Newport Beach, CA
Dental crowns are a common way to improve the appearance of a smile and restore damaged teeth. If you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or discolored, a porcelain crown can restore its radiant state using a custom-colored crown to match the surrounding teeth and minimally invasive medical techniques. Moreover, porcelain crowns are used in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry practices to solve tooth problems. To find out if porcelain crowns are ideal for you, please contact Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry today to schedule your initial consultation. There are several advantages to using porcelain crowns:
Porcelain is Resistant to Stains
Porcelain crowns are stain resistant, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of beverages and foods without worrying about staining your teeth. Porcelain is a non-porous material that does not absorb stains in the same way that natural teeth do, therefore it can help to preserve the natural color of your teeth. Keep in mind that it is still essential to maintain good oral hygiene by flossing and brushing regularly to keep your crowns clean and prevent any other oral health problems.
Remain Comfortable While Eating
Contrary to popular belief, porcelain crowns do not interfere with chewing and do not cause discomfort while eating. In fact, porcelain crowns are lighter than other types of dental crowns and are custom-made to fit perfectly on your teeth, ensuring a natural and comfortable feel while eating. Therefore, if you are considering getting crowns, it may be a good option to move forward with.
Less Time in the Office
The process of making and placing dental crowns is relatively simple and does not need multiple visits to the dentist. The first step is to take x-rays of the teeth to assess the level of decay and determine the best treatment. The teeth are then prepared for the crowns by removing any decayed or damaged areas, or by adding material to build up teeth structure as needed to provide support for the crowns. Once the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken and used to create custom-made crowns which are then cemented onto the teeth. The entire process can typically be finished in just a few visits to our dentist.
Porcelain Crowns Blend with Your Natural Teeth
Porcelain crowns can provide a natural-looking smile that is virtually indistinguishable from your teeth. Porcelain is a material that closely matches the translucency and color of natural teeth, so it can blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. As a result, same day crowns can be a great solution for improving the appearance of your smile and restoring compromised teeth.
Porcelain Crowns Are Strong
Porcelain crowns are made from a high-strength ceramic material that is very durable and can withstand the forces of chewing and biting. In fact, porcelain crowns are often utilized to restore teeth in the front of the mouth, as they can withstand the same forces as natural tooth enamel and can even be stronger than what many patients expect.
