Dr. Angela Berkovich, DMD often recommends porcelain dental crowns because they are virtually impossible to distinguish from natural teeth. Porcelain crowns display with a natural vitality and depth, and a great overall beauty.
Similar to veneers, porcelain crowns can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth; however, they cover the entire surface of the tooth which provides a strong structure that will prevent the cracking or breaking of any weaker, compromised teeth that they are adhered to. By strengthening these weaker teeth, they effectively reduce or eliminate pain, sensitivity, and difficulty with chewing and speaking.
In the past, crowns were built upon a metal core, enabling them to withstand the pressure of biting and chewing. However, that metal core often creates an unsightly dark line at the edge of many crowns. Recent dental breakthroughs, combined with the development of stronger porcelain materials, allow us to make crowns entirely out of porcelain. Porcelain crowns maintain a translucency that makes them nearly impossible to distinguish from natural teeth. Without metal, the problem of a dark line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. This allows us to place the edge of the crown above the gum line, which is also healthier for your teeth and gums.
