Frequently Asked Questions

Can porcelain crowns crack?

Technically, everything breaks! 

The real question is, which type of porcelain crown breaks easily? 

There are different types of ceramic materials in the field of dentistry. We are currently using monolithic materials in the mouth, and they are not only durable materials but also look exactly like a natural tooth. 

Let me show you how tough they are!

To be more clear, Porcelain Fused Metal (traditional porcelain crowns) has around 200MPA flexural strength while monolithic materials have 1000+MPA.
