Porcelain crowns have a wide variety of uses, including, but not limited to – teeth lightening, gap narrowing, fixing teeth that stick out and reducing crowding in the mouth. They can also be used to improve the outward appearance of the teeth. For those that are insecure about the appearance of their teeth or their smile, porcelain crowns can be a one-fix-for-all-problems solution.

The advantage of using pure porcelain is that the crowns are near identical in color to the existing colors of the patient’s teeth, making it nigh on impossible for others to discern a crowned tooth from a real one. A dentist will match the color of the crown to the tooth color already in the mouth, and then they will place an order with a lab to create the tooth with the perfect color and shape and patients are very happy with the results, and their new smile.
