Dental crowns help to preserve teeth that are cracked, chipped, or have large amounts of decay. Dr. Ala Din also places a dental crown on a tooth after performing a root canal. Although crowns are constructed with several different types of materials, he believes that placing porcelain crowns offers patients the most protection. Below we describe the major benefits of porcelain crowns.
Porcelain Crowns Look and Feel NaturalDental crowns made of metal and other materials really stand out from your other teeth. This can cause you to feel self-conscious, even when the crown is towards the back of your mouth. Porcelain crowns look extremely similar to tooth enamel, which means they blend in much easier. Additionally, it’s possible
to dye the dental crown to match the shade of your existing teeth more closely.It can be a minor annoyance to have material inside of your mouth that feels different from the rest of your teeth. A dental crown made of porcelain is easy to shape so it fits in your mouth seamlessly. Since the treated tooth has the same feel as your other teeth, you won’t give it a second thought.
Crowns Made of Porcelain Are More Durable Than Other Types of MaterialsPorcelain crowns are extremely resistant to cracking or breaking. As long as you practice good oral hygiene and don’t place unnecessary strain on your new crown, it could last as long as 20 years. Your newly placed crown makes it possible to chew any type of food without worrying about damaging it.
