What Are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns or tooth caps are dental restorations designed to fully encase the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Their main purpose is to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a tooth that has been damaged, decayed, or discolored. Unlike fillings that only cover a part of the tooth, crowns are used when the damage is too extensive.

Porcelain is favored by many because it mimics the natural translucency and gloss of real teeth. The porcelain material can be color-matched to the patient’s natural teeth, seamlessly integrating into their smile. Additionally, porcelain crowns are biocompatible, meaning they are non-toxic and are not rejected by the body.

Signs to Get Porcelain Crowns

  • Significant Tooth Decay. A crown may be necessary when dental filling can no longer fix extensive tooth decay. Large fillings can weaken the remaining tooth structure, making the tooth more susceptible to fracture. A crown covers and protects the exposed part of the tooth above the gum line, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance.
  • Cracked or Fractured Teeth. Cracked or fractured teeth can be susceptible to more damage if untreated. Luckily, a porcelain crown can hold the tooth together and distribute the stress evenly when chewing, preventing further deterioration.
  • Worn Down Teeth. Teeth can wear down from bruxism (teeth grinding), acidic diets, or aging. As teeth wear down, they get weaker and more prone to damage. Porcelain crowns restore the original shape and size of the teeth, protecting them from added wear and improving overall dental health.
    After Root Canal Treatment. Root canal treatment often involves removing a significant portion of a tooth’s structure to access and remove infected pulp. The tooth is weakened after this procedure and is more prone to fracture. However, a crown can strengthen and protect this tooth and restore its functionality and aesthetics.
  • Large or Unsightly Fillings. Porcelain crowns can replace old, large, or aesthetically unpleasing fillings. Over time, large fillings can weaken, and the margins may break down, allowing decay to occur again. Porcelain crowns provide a more durable and visually appealing solution.
  • Improving Aesthetic Appearance. Porcelain crowns can provide a cosmetic improvement for discolored, slightly misaligned, unusually shaped, or have gaps between teeth. Crowns are custom-made and can be shaped and colored to match the adjacent teeth, giving off a natural and enhanced appearance.
  • Implant Caps. Dental implants can replace missing teeth, from the root to the crown. After the dentist places the implant in the jawbone and integrates it properly, they attach a porcelain crown to the top of the implant to make it appear and function like a natural tooth.
