How dental crowns and bridges from your dentists in Wheaton, IL, can restore your teeth and rebuild your smile
Your smile is durable, but it can also be damaged. Aging, trauma, bad habits, and periodontal disease can all take a toll on your smile. Fortunately, dental crowns and bridges can restore your teeth and rebuild your smile. Dr. David Carlson and Dr. Michael Schuiling of Carlson Dental in Wheaton, IL, offer comprehensive dental care, including dental crowns and bridges to give you back your smile.
Dental crowns provide you with superb strength and protection because they cover the entire visible surfaces of your teeth, above the gumline. When you bite down or chew, the force and pressure of chewing are spread out evenly across your teeth, preventing damage to your teeth.
Dental crowns help your smile in other ways too. They can improve the beauty of your smile. Your once damaged teeth will appear whole and new again. One of the most common materials used in dental crowns is porcelain, which offers amazing benefits like these:
- Translucency; porcelain is reflective, just like natural tooth enamel
- Lifelike beauty; porcelain closely resembles natural tooth structure
- Stain resistance; porcelain resists staining, so your new crown will stay beautiful
Porcelain can also be fused to a metal foundation; this is known as a PFM crown. These crowns are a perfect choice for back teeth, where you may need more strength.
Now, let’s talk about dental bridges. Dental bridges provide excellent tooth replacement whether you are missing one tooth or several teeth. They are fixed in place, so you never have to worry about taking them out. You can brush dental bridges right along with your natural teeth. You floss underneath them using simple floss-threading tools available at grocery and drug stores.
