Dyson, your family dentist at Parmer Oaks Dental Care in Cedar Park, TX, offers dental crowns and bridges to give you back the smile you deserve.
More about dental crowns
Dental crowns can bring both functionality and beauty back to your smile through the strengthening of damaged teeth. They cover the entire visible surfaces of your teeth above the gumline, protecting your teeth like suits-of-armor. When you bite down on a dental crown, the stress of biting is spread out evenly across the restoration, just like with natural teeth. With crowns, your full chewing function is restored!
Dental crowns also restore the beauty of your smile. One of the most popular crown materials is porcelain, a light-reflective material that closely mimics the look of tooth enamel. A full porcelain crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, making it a perfect choice for front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile.
Another popular crown material is porcelain fused to a metal underlay, known as a PFM crown. These crowns combine the beauty of porcelain with the strength of a metal framework. PFM crowns are an excellent choice for back teeth because they provide increased chewing strength.
In the case of multiple missing teeth, dental bridges can bring functionality and beauty back to your smile. Bridges restore your full surface area available for chewing, thus allowing you to enjoy all of the foods you love. Dental bridges are also made of life-like materials, giving you the natural look that your smile deserves.
