Are Lighter Shades of Porcelain Being Used for Now As Opposed to 20 Years Ago?
I have read that porcelain doesn't stain much, but in most of the pictures I have seen where old crowns have been replaced the new shade is significantly whiter. Is this due to lighter shades of porcelain being used now to keep up with the whitening fad, or did these old crowns actually stain that much?
