Porcelain dental crowns are actually one of the most beautiful crowns that your tooth can get today! This kind of dental caps are made of ceramic and are used mostly for your front teeth. Pure porcelain alone gives that translucent look to one’s teeth, and so it comes closest to resembling a real tooth. Porcelain dental caps are made to order, customized caps that appear like the rest of your natural tooth. These dental caps are also best suited for those who may be allergic to metals.
The essential function of a porcelain dental cap is to replace the exterior a tooth in order to re-establish its original function along with providing a natural appearance. Even though a porcelain crown is used for the aesthetic reason it is best to seek the advice of your Vero Beach dentist, Dr. Root to understand what would be best suited for you.
There are various kinds of porcelain crowns, some of which are mentioned below:
Feldspathic Porcelain: It is one of the most traditional and considered beautiful
Empress Crown: It appears like glass but is made of ceramic
Procera Crown: It provides extraordinary strength, and has a traditional appearance
Lava Crown: This crown is shaded and looks beautiful on the outside because of its baked layer
Zirconia Crowns:It appears natural and does not betray black lines like other crowns
Emax Crowns:These crowns are the most popular kinds that are now available easily
A crown is fitted onto a tooth after it has been properly treated, cleaned and reshaped. The tooth is tapered in a manner so that the cap can fit onto the tooth snugly. For a porcelain dental cap, the impression of the tooth is taken and in about two to three weeks a porcelain dental cap is prepared at the laboratory. After the new dental cap has been fitted on the tooth the crown is firmly fixed with the help of dental cement.
It is important to avoid, clenching one’s teeth or grinding, biting into hard foodstuffs, this is because even though these dental caps are durable, they are not as flexible as natural teeth. There could be chances that some patients may experience hot and cold temperature sensitivity. Also, porcelain crowns on average are quite expensive.
When it comes to the upkeep of these crowns, maintenance is quite simple. Just like regular teeth, they require non-abrasive brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing.
We advise a regular follow-up appointment with your Vero Beach dentist, Dr. Root, that would help in reviewing the work of the procedure.
