Porcelain crowns are used in aesthetic restorations for anterior teeth and, in the presence of a zirconia framework, for posterior teeth. These are structures made of ceramics, which in their composition do not have metal impurities. Today it is one of the great ways to restore teeth that have been broken or weakened by frequent fillings.
Village Dental Medicine dentists recommend porcelain crowns in NYC for front teeth because the color of the material can closely match the shade of adjacent teeth. In addition, these orthopedic structures have a good level of strength and retain excellent aesthetic properties throughout the entire period of exploitation. We also use digital radiography, a high-tech replacement for traditional dental X-rays that emits less radiation, making it safer and more convenient for our patients.
This type of crown is made of pressed ceramic without the addition of metal impurities. Metal-free orthopedic constructions are very durable and also look aesthetically pleasing for a long period. This type of prosthetic is suitable for patients who are allergic to metal dentures.
Currently, these dental crowns have excellent aesthetic characteristics. They can be installed not only on the front but also on the lateral dentition. Porcelain dental treatment solves many problems in aesthetic odontology:
Any dental procedure requires a thorough examination and diagnosis. It is the specialist who can identify contraindications for the installation of porcelain crowns. This type of prosthetics is not suitable for patients diagnosed with periodontal inflammation, pathological abrasion of tooth enamel, or poor density of dental tissues. Among the limitations are also serious bite anomalies, bruxism, and various inflammatory processes in the oral cavity in the acute stage. In case of an abnormal arrangement of the anterior teeth, the patient will be recommended to correct the bite before prosthetics.
Porcelain crowns offer a degree of translucency that is identical to natural teeth and therefore provide maximum resemblance to them. According to their performance characteristics, they are not inferior to cermets and at the same time they have several advantages:
Due to their advantages over other forms of prosthetics, as well as their good functionality and strength, they are in great demand among patients.

Practice shows that with proper and timely care, ceramic dental linings can last up to 10-15 years. It is important to remember here that porcelain is a relatively fragile material, and even a slight crack can damage the crown over time. Therefore, excessive pressure on crowns should be avoided. In addition, the patient's habits can affect the service life.
For example, it is known that these dental crowns fail faster in patients with bruxism, that is, the habit of clenching their teeth strongly. Also, the service life of the structure can be affected by food preferences: solid foodstuffs (nuts, crackers), as well as the simultaneous intake of hot and cold food.
Porcelain teeth should be taken care of no less carefully than natural teeth. Dental plaque cannot harm the prostheses themselves, but the ingress of bacteria under the crowns can lead to the development of caries and the accelerated destruction of supporting teeth. Therefore, do not avoid regular brushing of teeth and the use of an irrigator or mouthwash.
