The Real Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
Whether you opt for dental implants in Richmond, or anywhere else in the country, there’s a pretty good chance that part of your implant will consist of a porcelain crown. Aside from providing a strong and natural looking solution that will enhance your smile, there are a multitude of other benefits too.
Anti staining abilities
If you want a crown that’s going to last then one way to give continuity to a natural look is by using a material that won’t stain. Dental porcelain is such a material that won’t stain and won’t fade or discolour. As long as good standards of oral hygiene are practised such as regular brushing, there’s no reason why a porcelain crown won’t retain it’s initial colour for many years to come.
Another property that typifies porcelain is it’s durability factor. It’s ideal for use as a prosthetic crown because it isn’t prone to damage and is easily expected to last 15 years or more before being replaced. In some cases, with proper hygiene and care, then porcelain crowns have been known to last twice this long at up to 30 years.
Porcelain looks real
Perhaps one of the main benefits of dental porcelain is that it looks strikingly real. In fact, in some cases it becomes very hard for a non-dentist to notice the difference between natural and prosthetic teeth. Add to this the fact that when you seek a dental implant in Richmond, here at Sheen Dental we go to great lengths to match the colour of the porcelain crown to that of your normal teeth. This results in a completely natural look which is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
Unlike a lot of other materials no special care is needed in the preservation of them. Instead good standards of oral hygiene such as regular brushing and flossing is all it takes to keep porcelain crowns looking as good as new
Easy to work with
Finally dentists love dental porcelain because it’s incredibly easy to work with. As a result it can be moulded into just about any shape or size. Therefore it’s ideal for use on implants or where small hard-to-reach spaces need to be filled.
As you can see porcelain has great may properties that benefit both the patient and dentist alike and when it comes to dental implants, in Richmond here at Sheen Dental we use porcelain extensively in many aspects of restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
