Why choose porcelain restorations?

Porcelain is the material preferred by dentists and patients for restoring and enhancing teeth, as it has similar properties to tooth enamel that give it a natural appearance and durability.

Your dentist can choose a shade of porcelain that perfectly matches your existing tooth colour, or you can choose a different shade if you want a whiter smile. Once fitted in your mouth, porcelain reflects light in the same way as natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell that your smile has been enhanced.

As well as its aesthetic benefits, porcelain is also very hard wearing, so porcelain veneers and inlays can last longer than composite veneers or fillings. Porcelain is also more resistant to stains and you won't have to give up so many of your favourite foods to avoid causing damage.

Porcelain veneers

Dental veneers are finely sculpted shells made from porcelain ceramic that can be bonded to the front of a tooth. They can be used to change a tooth's colour or shape, close small gaps, or make a tooth appear straighter or longer if it's short or chipped.

Porcelain veneers are custom made from impressions taken of your teeth. Some preparation of the tooth may be needed to help the veneers bond to their surface and so they won't feel bulky in your mouth.

It's important to keep maintaining good oral hygiene when you have veneers, as decay in the underlying tooth could cause the veneer to come loose.

Porcelain inlays and onlays

If your tooth has a large cavity or other damage that can't be fixed with a white filling, porcelain inlays or onlays can be a good alternative for restoring your tooth's strength and appearance.

For more severe tooth damage, you may need a crown.

Porcelain crowns

Dental crowns are caps fitted over an existing tooth to restore its shape and your normal biting surface. Crowns were originally made from metal, but most modern crowns are made from porcelain or other ceramic for its natural appearance.

Crowns may be fitted over teeth for many reasons, including reshaping or lengthening teeth, protecting a weak or damaged tooth or sealing a tooth after another dental procedure. By improving a tooth's appearance and function, they can be both a cosmetic and corrective treatment.
