Advantages of Using Dental Porcelain
Northern Virginia, including Arlington, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, Fairfax, and McLean, Virginia
The Northern Virginia cosmetic dentists here at Galleria Dental Aesthetics do many restorations using dental porcelain. Dental Porcelain is a stain-resistant, strong, ceramic material that is ideal for both cosmetic and reparative restorations.
Our Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) trained dentists can offer you state-of-the-art dental technology and procedures, and the confidence that you are getting the most advanced quality care available. While we are impressed with the superior results and advantages of using dental porcelain, more importantly, our patients are more than satisfied with the quality of their dental porcelain restorations.
What Treatments Use Dental Porcelain?
The versatility of dental porcelain makes it an ideal substance for a wide range of treatments. Dental treatments include the following:
We do not use any metal in our fillings or crowns. With dental porcelain it is possible to restore and repair teeth with safer, higher quality materials, and to get far more pleasing results.
Advantages of Dental Porcelain
With dental porcelain restorations, your teeth will always appear natural, bright and healthy. Your smile will be flattering and attractive, with no unsightly metal fillings or metal crown foundations to detract from its radiance.
Porcelain crowns can be used to anchor your bridge to neighboring teeth creating a permanent restoration that looks as natural as your original teeth. Anchored bridges require less care–you brush, rinse and floss as usual. They cannot be misplaced, or warped, either as they never leave your mouth.
Porcelain crowns can also be the finishing touch for teeth implants, again completing a full arch of naturally colored, evenly aligned teeth that make you look younger and healthier at any age.
Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays provide an excellent alternative to composite resin fillings when additional strength is needed to build up one or more teeth. Porcelain inlays or onlays are far superior to amalgam fillings in appearance and tooth preservation among other advantages.
Porcelain veneers, whether traditional or the newer ultra-thin brands, whiten your smile while restoring integrity to teeth that may be cracked, chipped, broken, stained, irregularly shaped, too short, too long, or have gaps between them.
