More about Crowns
You may need dental crowns to improve your smile if you have teeth that are:
- Missing a large amount of tooth structure
- Filled with large, crumbly, old metal fillings
- Filled with leaking, old tooth-colored fillings
- Worn down from aging, grinding, or bad habits
- Weakened by root canal treatment
Dental crowns work to strengthen your teeth by covering the entire visible surface of each tooth, above the gumline. They prevent breakage by spreading out the stress and pressure of biting across your entire tooth. Large dental fillings can actually weaken teeth because they create a wedge between different sections of your teeth, increasing the potential for your teeth to break or crack when you bite down.
Dental crowns can also improve the aesthetic beauty of your smile. This is because one of the most common dental crown materials is porcelain, which has light-reflecting properties, just like natural tooth enamel. In fact, a full porcelain crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. People will notice your smile, not your crowns!
For more strength, porcelain is often fused to a metal underlay, in what is known as a PFM crown. PFM crowns combine beauty and strength for a crown that is perfect for back teeth, which need more strength for chewing.
