June 13, 2018

Several porcealin restorations on tabletopMany patients can’t understand why the dentist would recommend porcelain materials to repair teeth. Delicate things like porcelain dolls and porcelain teacups come to mind first, and it may seem unlikely that porcelain is strong enough to repair damaged teeth or enhance your smile. However, think about the strength of a porcelain knife. The type of porcelain, design, and use make all the difference when it comes to the strength of porcelain. In fact, dental-grade porcelain is typically just as strong (if not stronger) than your natural tooth enamel. Whether you’re considering cosmetic treatment using porcelain veneers or dental restoration with a porcelain crown or bridge, a skilled dentist can create durable, long lasting porcelain restorations that leave you with flawless smiles.
