How Dental Crowns Strengthen Damaged Teeth
A dental crown from your dentist in Cincinnati, OH, can give you a stronger smile
Did you know that damaging your teeth is easier than you think? It's true! Everyday habits like biting your nails, opening packages with your teeth, and chewing ice cubes can all work to damage your teeth. If you clench or grind your teeth at night, your smile can also suffer major damage.
Fortunately, you can strengthen your teeth and your smile with dental crowns! Here at Montgomery Dental Care in Cincinnati, OH, your dentist, Dr. Janette Williams, offers a wide range of services, including dental crowns to give you a stronger smile. Read on to learn if this treatment could be right for you.
More about dental crowns
Whether your teeth are cracked, broken, or chipped at the edges, dental crowns can help. A dental crown strengthens your tooth by covering its entire visible surface above the gum line, thereby distributing biting and chewing forces across your whole smile. By evenly distributing the pressure and force of chewing, your previously compromised tooth is far less likely to become further damaged.
In addition to strengthening your smile, crowns can also make your smile more beautiful as well! That's because one of the main dental crown materials is porcelain, a light-reflective material that closely resembles natural tooth enamel.
A full porcelain crown can give you the dazzling look you want, and the strength your need for your smile. Furthermore, porcelain is stain-resistant, allowing the crown to stay bright and beautiful for years!
If you need increased chewing strength for your back teeth, you might also consider a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. PFM crowns combine the exquisite beauty of porcelain with the strength of a metal underlay, making them a fantastic choice for back teeth.
