Having natural looking, strong teeth to repair damaged teeth is important to your dental health. Today’s dental porcelain is the ideal crown material to recreate the form and function of a cracked or broken tooth and create an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

When a porcelain crown may be needed

Good dental health includes strong, fully functioning teeth with no exposed damage. In some instances, too much of a tooth has been lost and a regular tooth-colored filling would be likely to flake off or cause the tooth to break. A porcelain crown encases the damaged part of the tooth. The crown fits over the remaining healthy part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and the contour of a natural tooth. A porcelain crown helps to:

  • preserve the functionality of a damaged tooth,
  • protect a cracked tooth or a tooth that has undergone a root canal, or
  • restore the functionality of a tooth with excessive decay.

Benefits of porcelain for crowns

The latest advancements in dental technology have allowed cosmetic dentists to use materials that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain can be closely matched to resemble the look and feel of your original teeth, giving your teeth and smile a natural appearance. An expert cosmetic dentist can choose just the right colors so your crown will blend in perfectly with the adjacent teeth. When created by Dr. Kariotoglou in our Phoenix, AZ, dentist office, people won’t be able to tell it’s not the real thing!

You’ll love how the new, beautiful tooth makes you feel and look. In fact, you’ll catch yourself wanting to smile all the time!
