White Crowns for BEAUTIFUL Smiles

Gone are the days when a dental crown meant sacrificing your all-white smile. Now, to repair a damaged tooth, a white porcelain crown can keep your smile looking natural and beautiful.

What is a porcelain dental crown?

A porcelain dental crown is an all-ceramic crown placed over the top of an damaged tooth to return health, structure. appearance, and durability. White crowns are cosmetically ideal, because they look like natural teeth. Unlike porcelain-fused metal crowns, all-porcelain crowns do not leave any evidence of metal near the gum-line.

What area of the mouth is best for porcelain dental crowns?

Porcelain dental crowns are ideal for the area for front teeth — the teeth that show in a smile. Pay attention in the mirror and watch how many teeth are exposed at your widest smile. Those teeth that are showing the most would be well suited for white crowns.

Back teeth would likely fare better with all-metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia crowns due to the intense pressure they endure during chewing. Porcelain is durable, but it cannot endure the crushing pressure that molars encounter every day.
