What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Restorations?
Dental restorations can be made from various materials such as amalgam, porcelain fused to metal, composite resin, and others. Porcelain, however, offers many advantages and benefits beyond the other materials commonly used in dental restorations.
Porcelain is a highly versatile material for manufacturing porcelain restorations. The material has several applications, as 100% porcelain can be used to make dental bridges, dental crowns or caps, dental implants, veneers, inlays, onlays, and more.
When you think about the material used to make delicate teacups, durability might not be the first quality that springs to mind. Porcelain, however, is surprisingly tough when used inside the mouth for dental restorations. In fact, porcelain restorations offer roughly the same amount of strength as your natural teeth. This makes porcelain the perfect choice for standing up to the pressures of the daily wear and tear that teeth must endure.
Natural teeth are covered in tooth enamel which is a slightly translucent tissue. As a dental restoration material, porcelain offers about the same level of translucence as natural tooth enamel. Plus, porcelain can be dyed in any shade of pearly white to ensure a patient’s dental restoration blends in seamlessly with their surrounding teeth.
Many patients suffer from allergies and sensitivities to metal, and patients who do not yet have these allergies could always risk developing them in the future. If this were to occur, dental restorations that contain metal materials could cause problems down the road. Our 100% porcelain dental restorations offer an allergen and irritant-free alternative to dental restorations containing metal.
