The importance of porcelain crowns

One common solution for patients who have had damage to a tooth is a porcelain crown. A porcelain crown is fabricated to cover the entire visible structure of a tooth. This is done to offer an extra layer of protection and strength to a tooth that might otherwise break under normal wear and tear. Porcelain crowns are incredibly popular because they are not made with metal.
Patients who visit Sun Smile Dental Group often excited to see what their dentist has in store for them! Avoiding metal is highly recommended for patients of all ages. In the past, dentists have used metal to repair natural teeth. However, studies have shown that these metals are not truly biocompatible with the body and can cause issues undetected when they were used before. Now that dentists have more information on the impact of metal on the smile, they are switching to porcelain as an alternative. Porcelain is just as strong and is hugely beneficial because the material closely resembles the appearance of natural tooth enamel.
