Dental Crowns in Belpre, OH
When to use a porcelain crown?
At Belpre Dental Studio, Dr. Stephen A. Huffman typically recommends either a porcelain or zirconia crown. Porcelain crowns are completely metal-free and are custom matched to the surrounding teeth for shade. Porcelain crowns are crafted by a professional lab technician and you will never see a “gray band” around the gum line. The porcelain is intricately created to mimic the tooth’s natural color and character.
Typically, porcelain crowns are used in the front part of the mouth, and zirconia crowns are used on the back teeth. Dr. Huffman will help you make the best choice for you at your appointment.
Advantages of Porcelain Crowns:
- Exact color matching– Porcelain crowns can be created in color to perfectly match the shade of existing teeth. This means the restoration is not noticeable to others.
- No metal base– Unlike crowns that contain metals, with our porcelain crowns, you will never see a “gray band” around the gum line.
- Biocompatibility– Porcelain crowns are friendly to the gum tissue and do not cause irritation.
- Custom-fit– Highly skilled technicians create custom porcelain crowns to ensure that a perfect fit is achieved.
