Marietta Porcelain Crowns
For more than 40 years in cosmetic dental care, crowns were made of gold or with a metal substructure or foundation on the inside and porcelain glass on the outside. Today, however, we can use an all porcelain crown. These crowns have no metal substructure and are made totally out of porcelain or another ceramic material.
Why do we use porcelain crowns?
When a tooth has extensive decay or is broken down or has a large filling that is defective, a crown is often the treatment of choice. They are also used when a tooth has had a root canal therapy since a root canal treatment will leave the tooth more prone to fracture and breakage. Porcelain crowns can also be used to enhance the cosmetic look of the teeth.
The crown sits on top of the tooth and holds the underlying tooth together, making it stronger.

The benefits of an all-porcelain dental crown are:
- They are extremely realistic and life-like and when done well are virtually indistinguishable from your natural tooth
- There is no metal substructure so you don’t see the metal or a “black line” at the gum
- They are extremely strong and long lasting
