How dental crowns from Lucerne Valley can help your teeth
If your teeth are broken or damaged, it probably hurts when you eat. You may find yourself not wanting to smile because you are embarrassed. It’s time for a change! Now, thanks to modern dental crowns you can strengthen your teeth and make them beautiful at the same time. Dr. Samuel Kim at Apple Valley Dental in Lucerne Valley, CA, wants to share the facts about how dental crowns can help your teeth and your smile.
If you have dental decay, or your tooth is broken or damaged, you could choose a conventional metal filling. That’s often not the best choice because large metal fillings can weaken your tooth. The metal separates your tooth into sections, making it more susceptible to breakage when you bite down.
A dental crown is often a much better choice than a large filling because a crown actually holds your tooth together by covering the entire visible surface of your tooth. The hard, protective crown guards against breakage by shielding your tooth from strong chewing and biting forces.
You can also replace unsightly, bulky metal fillings with crowns which will enhance both the appearance and the strength of your smile. Dental crowns are made of only the finest cosmetic and restorative materials including:
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal, which is strong and beautiful
- Full porcelain, which is the most beautiful material
If you are ashamed of your smile because of broken, damaged or badly decayed teeth, it’s time for a change! Strengthen and beautify your teeth with dental crowns and enjoy smiling again.
