Here at Phan-Tastic Smiles, we are proud to offer porcelain crowns and caps for our patients.
What are Porcelain Crowns?
Used to create a beautiful looking tooth that’s nearly identical to our regular teeth, these crowns are made of a type of very hard ceramic. These crowns have a very healthy, natural look.
Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. There are times when they decay is so bad that we just have to use a porcelain crown. We also use them with severely damaged teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings.
Advantages of These Crowns
- They are translucent, meaning they look the same in lighting as a normal tooth, and feel familiar
- You don’t have to worry about possible allergic reactions due to the material
- Tooth alignment and form corrections are easier
- Perfect for those who have less space between their teeth
How Do They Work?
Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard! There are several types of porcelain crowns so it is important to discuss which type is best for you with your dentist.
It is also very important to use a dentist who is skilled in porcelain crowns so that you have the best chance to have a natural smile. Our dentists work hard to ensure that our patients have a smile that they can be proud of!
