Pros of Porcelain

The best part of cosmetic dentistry is that it’s like Hollywood magic. You can make your smile anything you want it to be. Here at Encino Dental Esthetics, we believe that using porcelain for crowns and veneers will provide you with the most natural look, so you can impress everyone with the effortless, chic smile you’ve always wanted.


While there are other materials, like resin composite for veneers or crowns, and metals for crowns, there are clear benefits of porcelain that you may not be aware of yet. Here are some of our “pros” for preferring porcelain to other materials:


-       Porcelain veneers last for 10-15 years compared to resin composite veneers, which last for approximately 5-7 years. 

-       Porcelain veneers are less likely to chip, stain, or fracture than resin composite veneers. Composite resin veneers do not respond to whitening procedures, though professional cleaning may remove some stains. Porcelain is your best bet if you want to keep your smile bright. 

-       Porcelain crowns look and feel like natural teeth, unlike metal alternatives which can be an eyesore.

-       Crowns made of porcelain last from 5-15 years, though they can last much longer with proper care. Remember to brush, floss, and keep up with regular dental visits to keep your oral health in check.
