Dental crowns from your dentist in Farmington, NM, can give you a smile you will be proud to show off
Are you proud of your smile? If not, it’s time to change things up a bit. It’s time to consider dental crowns! The truth is, dental crowns can repair and restore badly damaged or broken teeth, and enhance your smile in the process.
Dr. Travis Watson at Pinon Hills Dental in Farmington, NM, offers a wide variety of dental services including dental crowns to give you an outstanding smile.
A dental crown can make your tooth stronger because it covers the entire surface of your tooth above the gumline. It fits like a glove, protecting your tooth like a miniature suit-of-armor. When you bite down on a crown, the biting stress and pressure are spread out evenly, which keeps your tooth from breaking.
Dental crowns can make your teeth and your smile more beautiful too. That’s because dental crowns are made of porcelain, a material with unique properties. Porcelain is light-reflective and looks just like natural tooth enamel. Porcelain also resists staining, so your new porcelain crown will stay beautiful for a lifetime.
A full porcelain crown is suitable for any area of your smile, and it is perfect for your front teeth, or teeth that are visible when you smile.
Porcelain can also be combined with a metal foundation. This type of crown is a porcelain-fused-to-metal or PFM crown. PFM crowns are an excellent choice for your back teeth because they have the added strength of a metal framework. You need this extra strength to compensate for the biting pressure associated with back teeth.
Dental crowns don’t just help your smile. They also help your chewing ability, which aids your digestion and improves your overall health.
Dental crowns can help your self-esteem and self-confidence too because you know you look your best and you will want to smile more often.
If your smile needs a little TLC, consider dental crowns to give your smile the strength and beauty it needs. To find out more about how you and your smile can benefit from dental crowns, call Dr. Travis Watson of Pinon Hills Dental in Farmington, NM, at (505) 325-2859. Call today!
