Ceramic Crowns for Cosmetic Dentistry in Sandy Springs
Improve the strength and appearance of your teeth with custom ceramic crowns by The Right Smile Center. As part of our treatment options for cosmetic dentistry in Sandy Springs, we offer all-porcelain (ceramic) dental crowns that look natural and last for an impressively long time.
Natural-Looking Crowns for Picture-Perfect Results
Patients and dentists alike love all-porcelain restorations because their color and translucency mimic natural tooth enamel. They’re typically the best choice for upper front teeth, where cosmetic appearance is the ultimate concern. However, when considered for molars, their risk of fracture and higher cost may make other types of crowns a better choice. The strength depends on the thickness of the porcelain and how well the crown can be bonded to the underlying tooth.
Our ceramic restorations, like many other forms of cosmetic dentistry, require a minimum of two visits and possibly more to achieve seamless appearance. When we’re done, no one will be able to tell you’ve had dental work. Talk to our team to learn what you can expect from treatment.

Keep in mind that there any many different types of dental crowns, and no one type offers the best solution for all needs. An all-porcelain crown is just one option, so talk to our knowledgeable team when you are searching for a “Sandy Springs dentist near me.”
Another type of restoration is porcelain-fused-to-metal, which provides strength to a crown or bridge. These restorations are very strong and durable.
The combination of porcelain bonded to a supporting structure of metal creates a stronger restoration than porcelain used alone. More of the existing tooth must be removed to accommodate the restoration. Although they are highly resistant to wear, porcelain restorations can wear opposing natural teeth if the porcelain becomes rough.
After placement, there may be some initial discomfort to hot and cold. While porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations are highly biocompatible, some patients in rare instances may show an allergic sensitivity to some types of metals used in the restoration.
