They’re also beautiful. Your North Long Beach cosmetic dentist can match the porcelain to the shade of your natural teeth. Porcelain is highly resistant to stain, so porcelain crowns look great for years to come. The porcelain looks so much like a natural tooth that no one will know you’ve had any dental work.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Dental Crowns?
Most patients who need dental crowns are good candidates for full-porcelain crowns. However, there are some exceptions.
The excess pressure from bruxism (clenching and grinding the teeth) can cause the porcelain to chip, crack, or fracture. In these cases, a metal crown might be optimal. Similarly, if a patient is already missing an extensive amount of tooth structure, a metal crown might suit them best for the extra support metal provides.
