Top Four Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Posted by Julie Berger on October 24, 2019 9:00:00 AM EDT

Top Four Benefits of Porcelain Crowns | Samuels Dental ArtsThere are a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can have a big impact on how your smile looks. Getting porcelain crowns is one of the most transformative of those procedures. Crowns are designed to completely cover your natural teeth. They can provide you with a brighter smile, increase your resistance to stains, fix imperfections, and give your confidence a boost. If there are a number of issues with the way your teeth look, porcelain crowns may be able to provide you with a solution.

Brighter smile

Many people consider options such as porcelain veneers and crowns because they have deep stains on their teeth. Surface stains can often be removed with professional whitening. There are other types of stains, however, that extend below the surface of the teeth. For example, some types of medication can cause teeth to become discolored as they develop. No amount of whitening is going to fix that type of discoloration. Porcelain crowns can cover up that type of staining and give you a bright and white smile. The color of the crowns is customizable which means you can get crowns that look natural with your smile.

Resistance to stains

Porcelain is a material that is highly resistant to stains. In daily life your teeth are exposed to substances like coffee that can cause stains over time. Porcelain is resistant to these types of stains and will last for a long time without showing signs of staining. This fact can be a great relief if you are considering crowns to cover up deep stains on your teeth.

Fix imperfections

Porcelain crowns can also be used to fix imperfections on your teeth. Crowns can be customized to fill in gaps, give your teeth a new shape, and make your smile more proportional. In addition, they can cover surface level imperfections such as cracks and chips. If there is anything about your smile that you would like to change, porcelain crowns may be the solution. 

Boost your confidence

Getting porcelain crowns can boost your confidence by transforming your smile. If you have lived with stained or damaged teeth for years you understand that the condition of your teeth can have a big impact on your confidence. Porcelain crowns can cover a wide range of imperfections and provide you with a smile you are proud to show off.

Porcelain crowns can make a significant difference in how your teeth look and how you feel about your smile. Many patients who consider porcelain crowns also look into other options like professional teeth whitening, porcelain onlays, and porcelain veneers in search of the choice that provides the desired results.
