Porcelain Crowns & Porcelain Bridges
Porcelain in dentistry is used to create lifelike dental restorations like crowns, bridges and veneers. When bonded to your teeth, the porcelain is virtually undetectable and also highly resistant to stains that can come from coffee, tea, or even cigarettes.
What is a Porcelain Crown?
When extensive damage is present, porcelain crowns can help restore functionality and a life-like appearance to the patient’s tooth. The porcelain crown acts as a ‘cap’ or ‘cover’ for a tooth that might be damaged by large cavity or extensive wear and tear. Porcelain crowns are popular due to the natural looking appearance of the tooth after the procedure.
What is a Porcelain Bridge?
Porcelain bridges are a great option to replace one or more teeth. Like porcelain crowns, porcelain bridges are highly desired because of their life-like quality and durability. A porcelain bridge can help restore your smile and the ability to chew, maintain the shape of your face, and also protect your remaining teeth from moving out of place.
