Porcelain Crowns

A natural-looking choice for a super smile.

"All-porcelain crowns create the most natural-looking teeth," explains Dr. Anundsen. "That's because pure porcelain is translucent, and the size and shade can be carefully matched to your natural teeth. Plus, with an all-porcelain crown you won't get the thin metal band that often becomes visible along the gum lines with porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns."

How well do they work?

Porcelain is an ideal material for dental restorations, according to Dr. Anundsen. That's because it bonds to your teeth, restoring and improving the strength of your tooth. In addition, porcelain provides a natural, stain-resistant luster with the subtle translucence of natural teeth, making all- porcelain crowns a particularly good choice for front teeth. In nearly all cases, it is difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish porcelain crowns from your natural teeth.
