How dental crowns from your dentist in Moorestown, New Jersey can rebuild your smile

Do you need dental crowns? If you want to rebuild damaged, badly decayed teeth with the strongest restoration, the answer is YES! Thedental crowns truth is, dental crowns can rebuild your smile and make it as strong as it has ever been. Dental crowns can also enhance the beauty of your smile. Dr. Aliya Khan at Moorestown Smile Center in Moorestown, New Jersey offers a full range of dental services including crowns to rebuild your smile.

You may need dental crowns if your teeth are:

  • Severely decayed
  • Badly damaged, fractured, or broken
  • Missing large amounts of tooth structure

You should also have crowns placed on teeth that have had root canals. That’s because root canal treatment removes the blood supply and nerves inside your tooth, and the tooth may become brittle. Brittle teeth are more prone to breaking and dental crowns protect them.

Crowns are the strongest protection for teeth because they cover the entire surface of your teeth above the gumline. When you bite down on a crown, the biting pressure is evenly spread across the tooth surface. Crowns keep your tooth from breaking.

Crowns don’t just strengthen your teeth. They can also make your smile more beautiful. Many people choose porcelain, because of its light-reflective qualities and resemblance to natural tooth enamel. In fact, a full porcelain crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

You can also choose porcelain which has been fused to a metal underlay. These crowns are known as PFM, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. They combine the aesthetics of porcelain with the strength of metal, but they lose the light-reflective quality of pure porcelain.

Your smile deserves the strength and beauty of dental crowns. Why settle for a damaged smile, or a smile filled with old-school metal fillings when you can have state-of-the-art dental crowns?
