What is the Purpose of a Porcelain Crown?
Modern dentistry has made many advances in dental treatment procedures and materials over the years, and all-porcelain crowns are no exception. Learn more here from your Irvine cosmetic dentist about the purpose and benefits of porcelain crowns.
What is a Porcelain Crown?
A crown is used to repair a tooth that has been damaged, injured or fractured beyond the scope of what a dental filling can repair. A crown fits over the remaining structure of your natural tooth like a "cap" and protects both your tooth and root, while providing the same function that your own tooth did. All-porcelain crowns are durable and designed to replace your tooth for many years to come with the proper care. They're also aesthetically appealing because they can be custom blended to match your smile.
Dental Implant Crowns
Porcelain crowns are also the last phase of a dental implant procedure. After your bone has healed from implant surgery, your dentist will custom design a porcelain crown that will attach to your dental implant and serve as your new tooth. Implants are by far the best choice when replacing a tooth because they most closely mimic your natural tooth.
