Porcelain Dental Crowns in Clairemont
A dental crown restores a tooth’s shape, size, and strength. It fully encases the visible portion of your tooth or dental implant. It acts as a helmet for the tooth, protecting the underlying tooth it covers.
Porcelain is attractive, strong, stable, and highly resistant to wear. It offers a high level of biocompatibility because it does not contain metal. A porcelain crown provides the best natural color match to the rest of your teeth and is an excellent choice for front teeth.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal offers the benefits of a natural surface color that resembles the rest of your teeth and the strength of a metal substructure.
Can I do anything about the black line on my crown?
Yes. Your crown is more than likely a porcelain fused to metal crown. The black line you see is the area where the metal and the porcelain meet. Replacing this crown with a full porcelain crown will alleviate that line.
