What are the advantages of porcelain dental crowns?

Gone are the days of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns that give your teeth a gray or dark appearance. Instead, we now use all-ceramic or porcelain crowns in Etobicoke, ON, to restore your teeth.

If you have an older dental crown, you probably see the telltale dark-coloured margin at the bottom along your gum line. This doesn’t occur with porcelain dental crowns.

Porcelain can also be custom blended to match your existing teeth and naturally complements your smile while remaining functional for patients for many years.

And tooth crowns can last for decades with proper dental care and upkeep. Some crowns have even lasted for life.

Although your dental crown will not develop decay like your tooth can, you can develop a cavity if bacteria gets under the crown.

It’s also essential to take good care of your gums, so floss regularly, even around the dental crown. And always visit your Etobicoke dentist for checkups and teeth cleanings.

Dental crowns have many important uses, including:

  • Support for weak teeth
  • Concealing tooth flaws
  • Anchoring dental bridges
  • Topping dental implants
