Porcelain is a material that is used in many dental restoration procedures. Porcelain dental restoration is popular among some people because of the way it looks. There are pros and cons to using porcelain in certain dental restorations. Our Fort Myers Cosmetic Dentist at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point will consult with you in order to decide if a porcelain dental restorations is the best choice for you or not and what type of restoration you need based on the condition of your teeth.
Some common dental restoration procedures in which porcelain may be used are: fillings, caps (crowns), and veneers. Although other materials could be used, porcelain is the material of choice for some people due to aesthetics. Unlike metal filings, they are much more attractive. Porcelain fillings, however, are not as strong. Since they’re brittle they are susceptible to breakage. There are also several materials available for dental crowns (caps). Porcelain is one of the choices. A dental crown (cap) totally encases the tooth in order to improve its shape, size, strength and overall appearance. Some reasons dental crowns are used to protect weak or cracked teeth and to cover severely discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers are similar to caps (crowns). The difference is that instead of the tooth being totally encased like with a crown, a porcelain veneer is bonded to the front of the tooth.
