If you are seeking to make your smile strong and beautiful again, the following article may be of interest for you. A strong smile, and healthy teeth, are important for you to chew, speak, and enjoy a good appearance. However, it is not uncommon for many patients teeth to be compromised due to damage, decay, or trauma. If you do have a weekend smile, there is an effective way to strengthen your smile. Dental crowns are the option that you may have been looking for all this time. Let’s take a look at how crowns can strengthen your smile and give you back the life you deserve.

How Can A Crown Strengthen My Smile?

Dental crowns work to help strengthen your smile by covering the entire visible surface of teeth above the gum line. When you are experienced damaged teeth due to decay or a missing amount of tooth structure, these dental crowns can serve as caps to restore them to their natural function.

What Are My Options?

You have a few options when it comes to dental crowns. There are several kinds of materials that you can choose to make your crown out of, but many people mostly choose porcelain as it looks most closely to the natural tooth structure. Porcelain is able to reflect light just like tooth enamel, and a porcelain crown provides strength and beauty back into your mouth. There are other options such as porcelain fused to metal. If you do happen to have a tooth that is more severely damaged, most teeth are able to be restored with dental crowns. If your tooth has a lot of tooth structure missing, a post may be inserted to the root of your jaw and a metal framework can be built up around the post in order to attach your crown to a solid foundation.
