All-Ceramic Restorations in Williamsville
Our team of dentists at Amherst Dental Group combine their extensive expertise in dentistry with the latest dental advancements to deliver high-quality dental care. We work together to provide the comprehensive care you need for a truly radiant smile.

As a Williamsville cosmetic dentist, we use the highest of quality materials to replicate your natural tooth with porcelain restorations.
Benefit from All-Ceramic Restorations
Porcelain is a versatile material that allows us to create natural-looking crowns and other restorations to keep your smile looking its very best. Ceramic restorations offer superior benefits that just aren’t possible with other restorations, like porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, making them a highly preferred option. For a flawless smile, we most often use all-porcelain restorations on anterior teeth, but on occasions we may place them on posterior teeth.
Porcelain provides a natural look as it is very similar to enamel for a glossy, luminous, sparkling restoration. The translucent and light-reflecting capabilities of porcelain provide a comparatively more life-like appearance than other materials. Not to mention, because porcelain restorations do not have to mask an underlying dark metal structure like that of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, you benefit from superior esthetic results for a flawless smile.
Porcelain offers a high level of bio-compatibility, so they are non-allergenic and don’t cause gum irritation—perfect for those with metal sensitivities. Porcelain is also nonabrasive to the opposing teeth and other restorations to protect longevity and wear of the opposing teeth. With the restorations being 100 percent composed of porcelain, you will avoid the potential cosmetic complications associated with other materials used to make dental crowns.
Porcelain Dental Restorations
To benefit from porcelain restorations, the process is nearly identical to that of receiving traditional restorations. We also offer porcelain-fused-to-gold restorations as an alternative.
Porcelain restorations are made from one homogeneous block of material at a professional dental lab. This allows for more precise results in terms of size, shape, and color for a truly customized restoration that blends in seamlessly with your existing teeth. While you wait for your new porcelain crown, we will attach a temporary crown to restore the tooth’s function and appearance while your custom restoration is made.
With new customization features, the restoration provides a superior natural-looking solution that is unmatched by any other restorative material. The finished product will look and feel virtually identical to a natural tooth. With the right aftercare, your new restoration will be a longstanding solution to restore your tooth. Simply brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day and visit the dentist twice a year for routine checkups and cleanings. For those who participate in contact or sport activities, or those who grind their teeth, a mouthguard is recommended to protect the restoration from excessive force or trauma.
