How dental crowns from your family dentists in Bolingbrook, IL, can restore your smile
If you want to improve your smile, have you thought about dental crowns? The fact is, dental crowns can provide many benefits to your smile, including increased strength and increased beauty.
Dr. Rani Seeth, Dr. Prabha Singh, and Dr. Manju Suresh of Bolingbrook Dental Care in Bolingbrook, IL, offer comprehensive family dental care, including dental crowns to improve your smile.
If you want to improve your smile, dental crowns can:
- Protect your teeth from damage due to trauma, bad habits, or age
- Restore teeth that have been badly damaged by tooth decay, trauma, general wear-and-tear, or age
- Provide an increased surface area for chewing, so you can chew better and enjoy your foods
- Create a more beautiful smile by replacing large metal restorations with a more natural-looking alternative
Dental crown treatment is an excellent choice for teeth that are:
- Broken down, cracked, or fractured
- Missing a significant amount of tooth structure
- Weakened from previous dental treatment, including root canals
- Discolored, and unsightly
Not too long ago, your only choice for a dental crown was metal, usually gold, which is a strong choice, but it doesn’t look very natural. Fortunately, new dental crown materials have been developed, including porcelain.
Porcelain reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel, and when a porcelain crown is placed in your smile, it looks just like a perfect version of your natural teeth. A full porcelain crown is a great aesthetic choice for front teeth or teeth that show when you smile.
For back teeth, more strength is often recommended, which is why a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown or PFM is a superb option. These crowns give you the natural look of porcelain combined with the strength of a metal framework.
