How Dental Crowns Strengthen Damaged Teeth

Dental crowns from your dentist in Kirkland, Washington can help your smile.

If you need a stronger smile, consider dental crowns to help you achieve it. In fact, dental crowns provide overall protection, to keep your teeth from breaking. You can enjoy the foods you love without worrying about damaging your smile. Dr. Bernard S. Pak at Kirkland Smiles Dental Center in Kirkland, Washington offers dental crowns to help your smile.

Damaging your smile is easier than you think. Eating hard foods can take a toll on your teeth. Grinding and clenching can cause chipping and fractures. Even normal aging plays a part in diminishing the strength of your smile.

The good news is, dental crowns provide unsurpassed protection because they cover the entire visible surfaces of your teeth above the gumline. When you bite down on a dental crown, the biting stress is spread out over the entire surface of your tooth, protecting it from breaking.

Today’s dental crown materials provide the strength you need, and they also provide the beauty you want. You can choose from:

Full porcelain crowns, which are the most cosmetically beautiful choice; porcelain reflects light, like natural tooth enamel, so these crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Porcelain also resists stains, so a full porcelain crown will stay beautiful for years. Full porcelain crowns are the optimum choice for front teeth and teeth that are visible when you smile.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, also known as PFM crowns, which provide cosmetic beauty and increased strength because of the metal underlay; these are an excellent choice for any area of your smile because they provide increased strength for chewing and biting.

If you need a stronger, more beautiful smile, don’t wait! Find out more about how dental crowns can help your smile by calling Dr. Bernard S. Pak at Kirkland Smiles Dental Center in Kirkland, Washington today.
