Restore and fill out your smile with porcelain crowns for just £58.33 per month – thank us later!
Here at Mint Dental in London, we work with and use ceramic crown versions as well as metal ones, so you’ll be in the best hands for your restoration whatever you prefer to do.
Our artificial restorations have restored, protected, and preserved thousands of teeth, which would have been otherwise structurally compromised.
One kind of porcelain crown we offer here at Mint Dental is made from a metal base with a layer of porcelain bonded to it. What this means for patients is that they can reap the benefits of a strong and durable material whilst still attaining the aesthetics of a white smile.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns have been considered by highly regarded institutes as the gold standard for repairing damaged teeth making them an incredibly popular solution to repair a broken or unsightly tooth.
When choosing a material for your dental crown, patients can rely on porcelain crowns as they tick all the boxes to keep your oral health strong and healthy as well as having good reliability against breaks.
Lost a large portion of your tooth structure? Don’t worry. All types of dental crowns will improve and restore your dental function – but when it comes to porcelain crowns, the focus is more on aesthetics.
Now, a porcelain crown will be natural-looking on the front, a visible portion of your smile, and whilst will be strong enough to withstand biting forces in this area, there is a higher chance of them breaking. But this depends on your lifestyle and habits.
On the cosmetic front, porcelain crowns can be easily matched to the colour, shape, and lustre of your natural teeth, and just like veneers, are hailed for their blending capabilities.
The one limitation of porcelain bonded metal crowns is their aesthetic appeal.
Whilst the white porcelain has great translucent properties and mimics teeth well, the fact the base of the crown is metal can sometimes put patients off. So, in the case of choosing crowns for your front teeth, porcelain bonded metal might not be the right option.
That said, the only upside is that porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns will be much more affordable and cost-effective for patients on a budget. All-ceramic and porcelain crowns at our practice cost the same as PFM; £750 (or £58 per month on finance).
If it’s mostly aesthetic appeal you care about, patients can save money with our other non-metal porcelain crown options, which are tooth-coloured (Emax crowns and Zirconia).
If you need to replace an old crown, it’s a fairly straightforward process, providing that the remaining tooth structure is stable enough to support a new crown.
There might need to be some preliminary work to ensure there’s no decay building up or no root treatment required – but if the remaining tooth’s structure is adequate to support your new porcelain crown, then you’ll be set to go.
If in the case that your tooth is no longer restorable, we might need to recommend other treatment options that might be more appropriate for your situation instead of a crown, such as a dental implant or bridge.
