What are porcelain crowns?

Porcelain crowns are caps for damaged teeth that reinforce their weak structure. They cover the entire portion of the tooth above the gum line. Porcelain crowns can also sit on top of dental implants to permanently replace individual lost teeth. 

The team at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida creates your porcelain crowns to look almost identical to your natural teeth in their shape, color, and opacity. They even color-match the porcelain to the enamel of your other teeth, and if you choose to do so, you can get teeth whitening before getting a porcelain crown. 

Because porcelain crowns are highly customizable, they serve functional and cosmetic purposes. The crown restores your ability to safely bite down and chew while enhancing the appearance of your smile. 

How do porcelain crowns compare to other crowns?

Porcelain is an exceptional choice for your dental crown’s material because of its slight opacity. While it’s not as strong as a gold or metal crown, it’s sufficiently durable enough to support your bite and to last for a decade or longer as long as you take great care of your oral health. Plus, porcelain has a similar appearance to your natural teeth, while gold and metal do not. 

Zirconia crowns, another option at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida, are a close competitor to porcelain crowns. The two options have several differences. While zirconia crowns may last a bit longer, porcelain crowns are a well-trusted and cost-effective option that still provide you with an extremely natural-looking result. 

Who can benefit from a porcelain crown?

There are plenty of reasons why your dentist at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida might suggest getting a porcelain crown. Your customized porcelain crown can:

  • Protect a weak tooth from further damage
  • Cover or support large fillings
  • Hold cracked teeth together
  • Restore a worn-down tooth because of teeth grinding
  • Conceal severe discoloration
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Replace a missing tooth with a dental implant

Any time you come to Dental Implant Specialists of Florida with an oral health or function concern, the team examines you and often takes X-rays to get a better idea of the state of the tooth in question. They can help you compare porcelain crowns to any other options you have for treatment. 

A porcelain crown can fill out your smile or allow you to bite and chew with confidence again. Book your consultation for a porcelain crown by calling Dental Implant Specialists of Florida or scheduling one online today.
