Porcelain in Dentistry-Do You Have Discolored, Chipped, or Broken Teeth? If So, Ask Your Dentist at Dean Street Dental Clinic if Porcelain Crowns and Veneers Are Right For You

People notice your smile before anything else. A great smile can make you more attractive and happier! Sometimes people’s teeth are discolored or cracked, so they have a porcelain dental crown to fix it up again. Porcelain is just like tooth enamel because the dentist makes sure that no one will ever know what was there before with this treatment option!

Why Porcelain?

Porcelain is one of the best dental restorations because it looks so natural, lightweight and durable. Porcelain’s hardness means that your dentist can shape and fit it as needed to make an excellent crown for you!

Porcelain is one of the most popular choices for dental restorations because it closely resembles a natural tooth, your dentist will choose which shade matches yours best; durability and weightlessness are two other benefits.

Dental porcelain is a material that dentists use to make crowns and other things. It is biocompatible, meaning it won’t hurt your body. It’s also very hard and can’t be dissolved so it will stay in your mouth for the whole time you are using it. Dentists sometimes use porcelain fused with metal materials for certain teeth that need to be replaced every few years or so because they are not as hard as porcelain so they break more easily when people chew on them.

Technicalities of Porcelain in Dentistry

Dental porcelain is a material used by dental technicians to create lifelike restorations, such as crowns and bridges. It’s biocompatible, aesthetic, insoluble (meaning it can’t be dissolved), has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. For certain prosthesis like three-unit molars or complete teeth made from porcelain fused with metal groupings that use zirconia based materials are recommended for aesthetics purposes but not hard enough to withstand chewing forces so need to be replaced periodically.

Ceramic Restorations Are Indicated For Most Dental Applications

However, each system will have its own set of specific indications and contraindications which can be obtained from the manufacturers guidelines.
