If you are in the market for a dental crown or are debating about exchanging your gold crown for a porcelain one, we invite you to learn more about the advantages of porcelain dental crowns. Dr. Leida P. Stine may recommend a dental crown in Dublin, California, for the following benefits:
As you no doubt know, porcelain material is tooth-colored, allowing it to blend seamlessly with your other teeth and look just like a natural part of your smile. Because porcelain is available in natural shades, it is a great option for front teeth, where a gold or stainless steel crown would be conspicuous.
Porcelain material is highly resistant to staining and discoloration, so as long as it receives daily oral care and semi-annual attention from the dentist, it looks beautiful and polished for many years. In fact, on average, porcelain dental crowns last up to 15 years.
Another advantage is that porcelain material is easily sculpted and can be molded into a very accurate model of any tooth in your smile. It’s important to achieve an exact fit to ensure your crown feels comfortable and stable.
A very biocompatible dental material, porcelain has a very low risk of complications, and allergic reactions are very rare. Porcelain is less likely to be rejected by the body than other materials, making it an excellent choice for most patients.
