Porcelain teeth are generally preferred by people with aesthetic concerns. If the patient does not like the general appearance or color of her/him teeth, she/he usually prefers porcelain coating. In fact, the purposes of tooth coatings can be considered as enhancing the appearance of the tooth and giving the person a beautiful smile.

How to apply Porcelain Crown?
First, the teeth to be treated are cleaned. Then, the necessary thinning process is made on the tooth in order for the coating to be fully settled. This thinning process usually ranges from 0.5 mm to 0.7 mm.
After the teeth thinning process comes the mold removal process. This process is done in two different ways. The first is molding with classical methods and the second is three-dimensional imaging technology. The molds and images obtained are sent to the laboratory with the desired dimensions and the production phase of the coating begins. Until the porcelain coating is ready, temporary crowns are made so that the patient can use her/him teeth comfortably and the teeth are not damaged. If there is no problem in the rehearsal, the coating goes back to the laboratory for polishing. The porcelain coating, which comes from the laboratory in their final polished form, are attached to the teeth with a special adhesive and the process is completed.
