Dental Porcelain

Dental Porcelain veneers consist of ceramic shells that cover the front surface of natural teeth. Veneers provide instant transformation to a person’s smile. For a perfect fit, porcelain veneers are custom made for each patient.

Since the veneers are made from advanced tooth-colored materials, they resemble natural teeth. Our dentists use porcelain veneers for a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures, including orthodontic treatments and concealing stained teeth. Dentists can capture a patient’s natural teeth color and shape for the perfect veneer creation with advanced digital imaging systems.

Dental Porcelain are custom made for each patient.

Dental Porcelain veneers are another option to consider to improve your dental appearance. They consist of ceramic shells that are resilient, solid, and long-lasting. Placement is usually on the front teeth, giving instant transformation. Even so, custom fitting is still critical in the outcome.

Dental Porcelain veneers have several benefits, including a lifespan that ranges between 10 to 15 years and resistance to stains. They also look like natural teeth, especially when you get one of our professionals to handle the procedure. Porcelain also costs more than composite veneers, but all the benefits make them worthwhile.

The procedure is suitable for multiple issues such as teeth discoloration or staining and orthodontic procedures. It tends to be more complex than other dental processes. However, with our level of expertise, you will experience the best care and achieve perfection. Every measure we recommend for you and every step we take is the best available option.

Despite their durability, porcelain veneers only last long when cared for properly. Daily oral hygiene is paramount in their maintenance, the same as regular checkups by dentists – at least twice every year. They also require you to practice extra caution when biting, grinding, or chewing.

We have the best team to design the porcelain veneers to your liking. Giving you value for money and lasting solutions is our goal. We aim for excellence with every patient that comes to us. We are available to answer all your questions if you have any concerns. Our customization approach and top-notch systems enhance the skills our dentists have mastered. Our digital imaging systems and experience also make veneer installation easier. We capture the natural teeth’ colour to make the porcelain indistinctive. We also ensure we get the exact shape as we aim for perfection. You can schedule an appointment with us today to discuss all your options.

Some key aspects of dental porcelain:

1- Composition

Dental porcelain is a type of ceramic material that primarily consists of a mixture of various ceramics, including feldspar, quartz, and kaolin. These components are carefully blended to achieve the desired aesthetic and mechanical properties.

2- Aesthetic Properties

Dental porcelain is known for its ability to closely resemble natural teeth in terms of color, texture, and translucency. Dental technicians can customize the shade and shape of porcelain restorations to match a patient’s existing teeth, ensuring a natural and harmonious appearance.

3- Types of Dental porcelain:

  • Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM): PFM crowns and bridges combine a metal substructure for strength with a porcelain veneer for aesthetics. While these restorations are strong and durable, they may not be as aesthetically pleasing as all-porcelain options due to the metal core.

  • All-Porcelain or All-Ceramic: These restorations are entirely made of dental porcelain, offering excellent aesthetics and biocompatibility. They are often preferred for front teeth and highly visible areas.

  • Zirconia: Zirconia is a type of ceramic that has gained popularity in recent years due to its exceptional strength. It can be used for both crowns and bridges, offering both strength and aesthetics.

4- Dental Porcelain Procedures

Dental porcelain is used in various dental procedures, including:

  • Dental Crowns: Porcelain crowns are placed over damaged or weakened teeth to restore their strength and appearance.
  • Dental Bridges: Porcelain bridges replace missing teeth by anchoring to adjacent natural teeth.
  • Veneers: Thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance.
  • Inlays and Onlays: These are used to repair moderately damaged teeth by replacing the damaged portion with porcelain.

5- Durability

Dental porcelain is durable and resistant to staining, but it is not indestructible. Proper oral hygiene and care are essential to maintain the longevity of porcelain restorations.

6- Fabrication

 Dental porcelain restorations are typically custom-made by dental technicians in a dental laboratory. They are designed to fit a patient’s unique oral anatomy and aesthetic preferences.

7- Conclusion

Overall, dental porcelain is a versatile and widely used material in modern dentistry, offering both aesthetic and functional benefits for patients seeking dental restorations. Patients should consult with their dentists to determine the most appropriate material and treatment plan for their specific dental needs.
