Porcelain Crowns

Crowns, also known as "caps," remain a staple in dental restoration due to their effectiveness. Unlike crowns, which require the complete removal of enamel, onlays or porcelain veneers are often preferred for their strength and less invasive approach when feasible. Nonetheless, crowns become the optimal solution for severely damaged, decayed, or previously capped teeth.


Available in various materials, including all-porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, porcelain fused to zirconium, or entirely metal, the ideal crown material is selected based on the individual's bite and aesthetic preferences. Porcelain crowns, in particular, are adept at restoring the function, strength, and look of damaged teeth and are especially fitting for front teeth visibility.


Maintaining crowns involves regular dental hygiene practices, such as brushing twice daily, flossing, and avoiding habits that exert excessive pressure on the teeth, like grinding. If teeth grinding is a concern, consulting about a bruxism guard is advisable. To ensure the longevity of your crowns, refrain from biting on hard substances like metal or ice. It's essential to continue with bi-annual dental check-ups and cleanings, allowing for the monitoring of both your restorations and natural teeth. Early detection and treatment of dental issues can significantly reduce the need for more invasive and costly interventions.
