So what causes porcelain teeth to be damaged?

Due to the material: Porcelain teeth are often discolored, especially metal porcelain teeth . This is a line of porcelain teeth with a core made from Nickel – Chromium – Titanium alloy and covered with porcelain outside. Therefore, it is easy to be discolored and contaminated with food coloring. After a period of use, the teeth appear black streaks at the edge of the roots.

Due to poor hygiene: Regular consumption of foods such as coffee, tea, carbonated soft drinks, or smoking will cause teeth to become severely stained. Carbonated soft drinks will form many yellow stains on porcelain teeth. Porcelain teeth, like real teeth, will deteriorate over time if you have poor hygiene.

Due to improper restoration process: Each type of metal porcelain tooth or all-ceramic tooth has different points in structure as well as aesthetics. However, if the restoration is wrong, it also causes the porcelain teeth to deteriorate quickly or seriously affect the gums and real teeth.
