Advantages of Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
A porcelain crown covers and protects the tooth and can restore that tooth to its natural or ideal shape and shade. Porcelain crowns can also correct crooked, worn and damaged teeth, making your smile look and feel perfect.
Porcelain bridges can replace a missing tooth to restore the aesthetics and function of your smile. They are ideal restorations, especially if the teeth on either side of the missing tooth have large fillings or fractures, or are broken. The porcelain will cover the space of a missing tooth, and shield and strengthen the existing teeth on either side of the space.
Created by ceramists who are experts in high-quality, custom porcelain restorations, porcelain crowns are incredibly strong. When bonded in place, they protect and strengthen the remaining tooth structure. Crowns can also be placed preventatively before fractures or decay compromise the integrity of the tooth.
