Porcelain Restorations

Several different materials are commonly used to restore a patient’s teeth, such as composite resin, porcelain fused to metal, and more. Porcelain restorations, however, have become increasingly popular to use in restorative dentistry thanks to a variety of benefits the material offers.

What Are Porcelain Restorations?

Porcelain restorations include a variety of different types of tooth restorations that are made from 100% porcelain.

The Advantages of Choosing Porcelain for Your Tooth Restorations

Strength and Longevity
When you think of porcelain, you probably think of fragile knick-knacks and teacups. The material, however, is surprisingly strong. When used in dental restorations, porcelain can withstand just as much pressure as your natural teeth, and this makes it an effective and long-lasting choice of material for dental restorations.
Versatile Treatment Applications
Porcelain can be used to manufacture a variety of different tooth restorations including:
Porcelain is also commonly used to make veneers. Although porcelain veneers are not classified as dental restorations, they are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment.
No Allergy Risks
Allergies and sensitivities to a variety of metal materials used in dental restorations are not uncommon. Sometimes, patients can even develop these allergies over time, meaning that a metal-based restoration received in the past could start causing problems down the road. With 100% porcelain tooth restorations, there is no risk of unpleasant side effects or bio-incompatibility due to metals being present in the dental work.
Superior Aesthetics
In addition to all of the above-mentioned benefits, the primary reason most patients choose to have their tooth restorations made from all-porcelain is that the material, by far, offers the most natural look. The porcelain used in tooth restorations can be dyed to match and blend naturally with a patient’s surrounding teeth. Additionally, the material is naturally translucent, making it reflect and absorb light in a similar manner to natural tooth enamel.
