Teeth are strong, but they can still be damaged. Grinding or clenching your teeth, chewing on hard foods, or experiencing an injury involving your face can all damage your teeth.
The good news is that a dental crown provides superb protection for a damaged tooth. These devices cover the entire tooth, including above the gum line. This overall protection means that when you bite down, the biting stress spreads out over the entire surface of your tooth, preventing breakage. It's the best option at your Novi family dentistry practice.
Dental crowns are great protection for damaged teeth, but that isn’t all they do. Modern dental crown materials can also enhance the beauty of your smile. That’s because they are made of porcelain, a cosmetically beautiful material.
Porcelain reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel, and it closely resembles the appearance of tooth enamel too. When a porcelain crown is placed, it is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. It's also stain-resistant, so your new porcelain crown will stay white and beautiful for years.
Sometimes you might need a little extra strength, especially on your back teeth, where most of the chewing happens. For back teeth, porcelain is often fused to a metal underlay to make a porcelain-fused-to-metal or PFM crown. This is all accomplished right here at your Novi family dentistry office.
If you have a tooth that has lost a significant amount of structure, your Novi, MI, dentist can place a post in your tooth, creating a metal framework around the post to provide support for the dental crown.
Dental crowns restore both your damaged teeth and the beauty of your smile.
