Your teeth are responsible for biting and chewing as well as maintaining the esthetics of your mouth. Even if you damage or lose one tooth, it can impair your ability to eat, smile, and even speak. Fortunately, Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS and Dr. Pliszczak at Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS can help restore your damaged or lost tooth with a porcelain crown.

What is a Cosmetic Porcelain Crown?

A porcelain crown is an artificial dental cap made of high-grade porcelain. This cap is placed on top of a natural tooth after a root canal surgery or on top of a dental implant after a dental implant procedure. This crown covers the entirety of the tooth that is visible over the gum line.

Since this dental crown is made of porcelain, it matches the color of natural teeth. Because of this, most people prefer to get this to cover any discoloration or defects on their front teeth that are visible when we speak or smile.

What is a Cosmetic Porcelain Crown Used For?

A cosmetic porcelain crown can be used to:
•  Protect a weakened tooth after a root canal treatment.
•  Replace a missing tooth with the help of a dental implant.
•  As support for holding a dental bridge.
•  Replace large fillings in the teeth.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

If you want to have realistic-looking strong replacement teeth, then porcelain crowns are a great choice.
•  Porcelain is a white material that reflects light. In this way, it is similar to the enamel which also has light-reflecting properties. In addition, the crown extends down to the gum line furthering the illusion of a natural tooth.
•  Porcelain can also be stained easily to match the exact shade of your teeth. Because of this, people prefer it to cover up canines and incisors.
•  Hypoallergenic: Porcelain is also bio-compatible which means it does not cause any adverse reactions when in contact with gums, teeth, and other tissues of the mouth.
•  Stain-resistant: One of the major cosmetic benefits of a porcelain crown is that it is highly resistant to stains. Hence, it can remain bright and shiny for a long time.
•  Low-Maintenance: Porcelain crowns do not require any special cleaning. All you need to do is to brush and floss between them just like your natural teeth.
•  Durable: porcelain crowns are made of high-grade porcelain which is quite strong. With proper care, your porcelain crown can last for 15 years.

Should I Get a Cosmetic Porcelain Crown

Although porcelain crowns are strong, they are not as strong as other metal-based crowns. If porcelain crowns are subjected to high pressure, they may chip or crack. However, this can easily be avoided by taking care of what you eat.

Porcelain crowns are very effective and esthetic tooth restoration options. Since they can be expensive, you need to exercise good care so that they can last you for several years. Keep in mind that porcelain crowns, like all other crowns, cannot prevent bacteria from re-infecting your tooth, so good oral hygiene is very important.
