Dental crowns can help your smile in several different ways. They strengthen and protect damaged teeth, restore biting and chewing functions, and dramatically improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic flaws. Dental crowns can even help replace missing teeth. Dental crowns are available at Palm Leaf Dental in Ponte Vedra, FL. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Eric Broe, can help you improve your smile with dental crowns.
Improving Your Smile with Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a hollow cap that fits directly over a natural tooth, completely encasing it inside. Crowns can be made from various materials. Dental crowns that are made from porcelain or a similar material look just like natural teeth so they blend in with the rest of your smile, making porcelain crowns a popular choice.
By completely encapsulating teeth, dental crowns give them a brand new exterior that is both strong and flawless. For weak or damaged teeth, dental crowns serve several purposes. The new outer shell makes those teeth stronger, while also protecting them from becoming further worn down or damaged. Additionally, biting and chewing functions are restored for teeth that were previously too weak to perform them.
Dental crowns also give teeth with cosmetic issues a flawless new look. Any imperfections in the natural tooth are no longer visible once the crown is in place. Dental crowns dramatically improve the appearance of teeth that are crooked, cracked, chipped, stained, discolored, or oddly shaped.
It is also possible to restore your smile with dental crowns following tooth loss or extraction. Individual teeth can be replaced by attaching a crown to a dental implant. When filling in large gaps where multiple teeth are missing, dental crowns can help by anchoring bridgework or implant-supported dentures in place. The experienced dentist at our Ponte Vedra office can both strengthen, restore and improve the appearance of your smile with dental crowns.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
When you have dental crowns, the benefits to your smile are numerous. For instance, they are durable and long-lasting. Plus, crowns made from porcelain look just like your natural teeth so they blend right in.
