Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
Patients who have a damaged or misshapen tooth might be self-conscious about their smile but also unenthusiastic about getting a metal restoration. If you live in Cincinnati and you’d like to make your smile whole again while maintaining a natural appearance, porcelain crowns might be the solution for you.
Crowns fit like caps over teeth. A porcelain crown not only covers the unattractive portion of the tooth you’d like to hide but also replicates the shade of the natural teeth surrounding the restoration.
Dr. Tara Hardin and Dr. Gary Hardin have extensive experience customizing porcelain crowns and other cosmetic and restorative dental solutions for patients who are unhappy with their smiles. Along with the aesthetic advantages, these inconspicuous restorations have other benefits as well, including:
- Strength: The ceramic in porcelain crowns is almost as durable as natural tooth enamel, especially when used to restore a front tooth.
- Convenience: Using CEREC technology, our dentists can craft a custom porcelain crown for your tooth in a single visit.
- Safety: Metal-free dentistry protects our patients from the potentially toxic mercury found in crowns relying on older designs that contain metal amalgams.
