How dental crowns can give you an outstanding smile
 
Today’s dental crowns can take care of many dental problems. Are you wondering if dental crowns can help your smile? Dr. Jeanette C. dental crownsMurphy in Monroe, Michigan offers dental crowns that are the perfect answer to repairing your smile.

Dental crowns are the right choice for dental problems like these:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Severe loss of tooth structure
  • Worn down, eroded, aging teeth
  • Protecting teeth after root canal treatment

Crowns are a strong dental restoration. They cover the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline. When your tooth is covered completely, the force of biting and chewing is spread out evenly across your entire tooth surface, protecting your tooth.

Dental crowns are also an excellent choice if you want to enhance the beauty of your smile. They can give you a naturally beautiful smile. That’s because porcelain and zirconium are often used as the perfect crown materials since they reflect light and resemble natural tooth enamel. Full porcelain or zirconium crowns are an excellent choice for front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile.

You can also choose porcelain which has been fused to a metal underlay. This type of crown is known as a PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal) crown. PFM crowns combine the strength of metal with the beauty of porcelain. PFM crowns are the perfect choice for back teeth where extra strength is needed for chewing.
