How dental crowns from your dentist in Parkland, Florida can rebuild your smile
Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body, even harder than bone, and yet, your teeth can still be damaged by decay, trauma, and other causes. When your teeth are damaged, you need a strong restoration to withstand the forces of chewing and biting. The strong restoration you need is called a dental crown! Dr. Hector Naranjo at Evolution Dentistry in Parkland, Florida provides dental crowns that can restore your damaged teeth and make your smile whole again.
A dental crown works differently than other restorations because a crown covers the entire surface of your tooth, above the gumline. Dental crowns restore damaged teeth, and they also make your smile more attractive! That’s because many of today’s crowns are made of full porcelain which reflects light. Porcelain also mimics the look of tooth enamel, which means you can have a strong restoration that looks just like a natural tooth. Full porcelain is not only light reflective; it’s also stain resistant. That means your full porcelain crown will stay bright and brilliant for years.
You can also choose a porcelain crown which has a metal foundation. This is known as a PFM crown, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown. This is an excellent choice for back teeth because these crowns are stronger due to the metal, and you need the increased strength for chewing on your back teeth. PFM crowns lose their light-reflective quality because of the metal underneath, but they are still natural-looking.
If you have teeth that have been badly damaged by decay, an accident, or an injury, don’t worry. Dental crowns can give you back your smile, stronger and more beautiful than it was before.
