Porcelain dental crowns are an extremely popular dental solution being used today. Crowns are used for a variety of reasons and can protect teeth that may have had a large amount of decay removed or been subject to a root canal. If you are in the Ontario, CA, area and believe you need a crown, you should visit Dr. Mukesh Patel at Ontario Dental Center.
If you ask somebody who has recently received a dental crown what it is made of, chances are they are going to say porcelain. Porcelain is the most popular material being used today in the construction of dental crowns. There are many reasons for this, including their ability to mimic the color and shine of your natural teeth closely. The shade of porcelain used for your dental crown is a conversation you will have with Dr. Patel, and a shade that closely matches the shade of your surrounding teeth will be chosen.
Porcelain is also dependable due to its durability. A porcelain crown can withstand just about everything your natural teeth can, including biting down and chewing foods. Porcelain is light and does not add bulk to your mouth, and it easy to get used to. Porcelain is also amazingly easy to shape and fit into your mouth to look like a natural tooth.
