How dental crowns from your dentist in White Lake, Michigan can give you a great smile

Did you know that dental crowns can make your teeth stronger? It’s true! In fact, dental crowns can prevent your teeth from breaking, protecting your vital tooth structure. Did you know dental crowns can also make your smile more beautiful? That’s true too! The fact is, modern dental crowns look just like natural teeth. Dr. David Campbell in White Lake, Michigan can help you achieve a great new smile.

Dental crowns make your teeth stronger because a crown covers your whole tooth, the area visible above the gumline. They protect your teeth like a suit-of-armor so that when you bite down, the biting stress is spread evenly across your teeth.

Modern dental crowns also provide cosmetic benefits because they are made of materials like porcelain. Porcelain has the unique quality of reflecting light, just like natural tooth enamel. That means when you receive a full porcelain crown, your new crown will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Your smile will look great, and totally natural!

Modern porcelain crowns will look great for years because they are stain-resistant. That means if you drink coffee, tea or red wine, your teeth will still sparkle. There are other materials to choose for your crown, like porcelain fused to a metal framework, called a PFM crown. These crowns are strong, but not light-reflective because of the metal, so they will look great, but not quite as natural as a full porcelain crown.

Dental crowns offer benefits which enhance your chewing ability and the beauty of your smile. You deserve to have your best smile, and dental crowns can help you achieve it. To find out more about dental crowns and other restorative and cosmetic services, call Dr. David Campbell in White Lake, Michigan today!

Damage to a tooth can happen instantly due to a sudden injury, or gradually over a period of years due to enamel erosion, food dental crownsconsumption, or the basic process of aging. A dental crown can restore that damage and extend the life of your tooth for 10 or more years. Dr. David Campbell can administer this helpful dental treatment at his family dentist office in White Lake, MI.

Dental Crowns—An Invaluable Restorative Treatment
Millions of patients, including some people you know, have had their teeth repaired and strengthened with dental crowns. In fact, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates that at least 15 million people have them. Modern crowns look so natural that most people can’t even tell that you have one. They are hollow porcelain shells that are shaped and sized to look like naturally contoured teeth. Once a crown is cemented to your tooth, it replaces the outer enamel, making it stronger, whiter, and much more beautiful.

Uses for Dental Crowns
Crowns have a number of valuable uses in dentistry. They hide dental imperfections, including cracks, jagged edges, intrinsic discoloration, and tiny teeth. They shore up eroded enamel. After a patient has root canal therapy, the newly disinfected and filled tooth is then secured with a dental crown to ensure a better healing process. Dental bridges also require two crowns for support. Additionally, crowns are used with dental implants to restore missing teeth.

What Your Appointment Will Be Like
Expect little to no discomfort at your crown appointments. Your White Lake family dentist will remove a certain amount of dental material from the affected tooth, then take a mold of the remaining abutment. After a few weeks, you'll return to see your dentist for the final step—bonding the crown and adjusting it to fit comfortably between your teeth. 

A Stronger, More Attractive Smile with Crowns
Some of your teeth may have lost their resilience and beauty, but they can be restored with dental crowns. Call Dr. Campbell, your White Lake, MI family dentist, at 248-887-8387 to schedule a crown consultation visit.
