Sink Your Teeth into the Perks of Porcelain Implants

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are made of 3 parts; screw, abutment, and crown. Each piece is integral as, without one of these parts, the implant can’t function.

The Screw

The screw that drills into the jawbone is made out of titanium. The titanium screw acts as an anchor that holds the abutment in place. The most interesting of the parts of an implant is the screw by far due to osseointegration.

Osseointegration occurs during the healing process after the abutment is attached to the implant and you’ve received a temporary crown. Osseointegration is the fancy name for when bone and titanium fuse together.

Abutment

This attaches to the top of the screw and acts as the base for the crown. Its only job is to connect the crown to the implant; that’s it.

Crown

Lastly, the crown rests on top. There are several materials used to make crowns, these materials are:

• Ceramic
• Composite resins
• Metal
• Porcelain
• Zirconia

While all materials make a high-quality product, our crowns are crafted from porcelain. Those are the three parts of an implant—anchor, abutment, and crown, such a simple procedure that will improve your smile.

Why Are Crowns Made from Porcelain?

It’s Stronger

Porcelain is naturally tougher than tooth enamel, making it a strong replacement. However, that doesn’t make porcelain impervious to damage. Crowns can wear down just the same as teeth do, and if you’ve gone through one set, you want to make similar mistakes twice.

Camouflages Perfectly

Porcelain also looks a lot like enamel, making it a quality choice for crowns. Not only are they stronger, but they also look natural. Other options tend to be noticeable, especially gold ones.

Did you know that porcelain is naturally stained-resistant? While nature teeth are stained by drinks such as wine or coffee, porcelain can keep its color intact. They also conduct heat and cold poorly, which may limit your sensitivities depending on how many implants you require.

Built To Last

Crowns made of this material can typically last at least fifteen years, if taken care of properly. They can also shield neighboring teeth from potential damage due to their strength.

Porcelain is a straightforward material to keep clean and beautiful. Treat it no differently than you would enamel teeth. Brush twice a day and floss once, and you can expect your implants to last, barring some unforeseenaccident.

The general consensus is that porcelain implants feel better and are more comfortable than other materials.

Porcelain implants can be molded into the exact shape and size that your mouth requires.

Furthermore, the chances of
complications are slim to none.

There is a reason for everything, and porcelain crowns have many reasons they
should be used. All you need to do is keep them properly maintained, and they will
last for as long as you care for them.
