Benefits of Porcelain/Zirconia Crowns
A crown can be thought of as a suit of armor for your tooth. Once a tooth is fitted with a high-quality crown, it is much stronger than before. Crowns are a wonderful way for you to avoid pulling a tooth that has become less functional due to problems like decay or weakness. For example, a tooth that has had a metal filling in it for many years may have suffered a crack due to the expansion of the metal.
When we treat the tooth with a crown restoration, it retains its original strength and is protected from further damage. The crown makes the tooth fully functional once again. In addition, porcelain/zirconia crowns can improve the appearance of teeth by creating a more attractive shape and color.
Why Great Materials Matter
You may have had dental work in the past that looks good at first but comes loose or wears down within a few months. We feel that our commitment to using high-quality materials really makes a difference in our patients’ outcomes. By choosing high-grade zirconia and porcelain, our dental crown work is more attractive, more natural-looking, and more durable.
