Porcelain dental crowns are used to cover the exterior portion of a damaged or decayed tooth to regain the original function of the tooth and to create a natural and pleasing aesthetic appearance. Porcelain crowns are used as a treatment process to recover from a tooth decay, damage or severe enamel erosion. Porcelain crowns are also used in situations of tooth grinding and clenching that destroys the original structure of the teeth.
The porcelain crowns replicate the original tooth in function and appearance with a natural look. They provide for patients who have damaged or decayed tooth in the front portion thereby covering the abnormality in the teeth. Porcelain crowns are secured on the top of the damaged tooth using a light-sensitive resin. A resin or bonding agent is placed between the damaged tooth and crown and hardened using a special curing light.
Partial crowns are translucent and are ideal for front tooth restoration. Porcelain crowns are used in majority of cosmetic treatment services.
Total porcelain crowns are translucent in color and give a natural look to the tooth. There are numerous types of total porcelain crowns and discussed below:
