Natural-Looking Porcelain Crowns

crowns Kennett Square, PA

For patients that find out they will need a dental crown, one of the first questions is typically regarding how the tooth will look once the procedure is done. However, nowadays it is much simpler to fix any dental issue and not have anything noticed in your mouth by friends or family. This gives the patient back their confidence, without any of the gawking!

In the past, most of the tooth replacement options were not as concealed and tooth colors may have been different. With advances in dental technology, these problems are no longer necessary. Now someone can get a tooth fixed or replaced and people may never notice or realize there is an artificial tooth in its place.

Which dental crowns are natural-looking?

Full porcelain crowns are not only one of the most durable and strong options, but they also have the most realistic and believable set of teeth on the market. This is the kind of crown dental professionals suggest to patients who want the durability to ensure their teeth's safety. However, they also provide the proper aesthetic appeal that would not bring attention to their mouth that a traditional denture might bring.

Porcelain crowns have the ability to be shaped and colored to match the adjacent teeth in the mouth. This blends the denture seamlessly into the patients' beautiful, natural smile!

Porcelain and zirconia dental crowns

The other material that is used in porcelain crowns is zirconia. It is a type of metal that comes from zirconium, which is used to strengthen the porcelain.

Combining these two materials during the bonding process helps to build a strong crown that will be durable and tough enough to avoid any cracks or chips. Along with the strength, the zirconia metal can also be matched to the color of the porcelain to ensure there is no darkening of the tooth.

Full-porcelain crowns

One of the most used options of dental crowns is the full-porcelain option. Patients typically feel that full-porcelain crowns resemble natural teeth the most. Because of this, they are one of the most commonly chosen options, especially for people needing a crown that is closer to the front of the mouth.

Although full-porcelain crowns are not quite as strong as ones that combine zirconia, they are still a wonderful option to help protect a person’s tooth and ensure a great-looking smile in the process.
