Porcelain Dental Crown/ Bridge/ Veneer – Old
Are you thinking of improving your smile? You’re not alone. Porcelain dental crowns/ bridges and veneers are state-of-the-art ways to straighten teeth, close gaps, whiten teeth, correct crowded teeth, and give you a more youthful smile.
To have enough strength to withstand biting forces, porcelain dental crowns always used to be built on a metal core. This may result a dark blue or black line at the gum level due to the metal inside the crown. With new technology it is now possible to make crowns entirely out of porcelain. This high-strength crowns maintain a translucency which makes them indistinguishable from natural teeth. Without metal, the problem of the dark line at the edge of the gum is eliminated. This allows us to place the edge of the crown above the gum line, which makes it easier to clean and keep healthy.
