How dental crowns from your dentist in Pensacola, Florida can help your smile.

Your teeth are strong, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be damaged. Everyday habits like chewing hard objects or grinding your teeth can all work together to chip or crack your teeth. Your smile shows the wear-and-tear of your life. The good news is, dental crowns can restore your damaged teeth and make your smile new again. Dr. Edwin E. Yee in Pensacola, Florida offers dental crown options that can help your smile.

Dental crowns work differently than dental fillings. Crowns cover the entire visible surfaces of your teeth, above the gumline. That means when you bite down on a dental crown, the biting stress is spread evenly across the entire surface of your tooth, protecting the tooth. Dental crowns restore your biting and chewing function along with giving you a beautiful smile.

Today’s dental crowns enhance the beauty of your smile too. That’s because one of the main crown materials is porcelain, a beautiful, natural-looking material that is also stain-resistant. Porcelain is light-reflective like natural tooth enamel and mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Full porcelain crowns are often placed on front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile.

Full porcelain crowns are suitable for any area of your smile, but sometimes you need more strength for your back teeth. For this reason, porcelain is often combined with a metal underlay. These crowns are known as porcelain-fused-to-metal or PFM crowns. PFM crowns are suitable for any area of your smile.

If you have damaged teeth, consider dental crowns, the best way to provide the strength you need and the beauty you want in your smile. To find out more about dental crowns and how they can help your smile, call Dr. Edwin E. Yee in Pensacola, Florida at (850) 479-3355. Call now and protect your smile.

Should you consider turning to your Pensacola dentist to achieve a whiter smile?

It’s difficult not to notice that in every TV show or magazine ad that everyone smiling seems to have perfectly white teeth. While you might think that you are far from being able to have this same vibrant smile, guess again. Our Pensacola, FL, dentist Dr. Edwin Yee can give you the same ad-worthy results you want with the help of professional teeth whitening. If you aren’t sure whether professional whitening is right for you, here are some things to consider:

Professional whitening is completely safe

If you feel a bit apprehensive about trying to whiten your smile on your own, then you may want to consider turning to our dental team for whitening treatment. Dr. Yee has received extensive training to be able to perform whitening treatment safely and effectively while reducing the chances of issues such as tooth sensitivity. Our team can tailor your treatment to meet your specific needs, as well.

Say goodbye to tough stains

If you are someone who can’t live without their morning coffee or you enjoy wine several nights a week, these habits aren’t exactly kind to your teeth. Dark drinks and foods can leave you dealing with some pretty stubborn and hard-to-remove stains that even your toothbrush and floss can’t tackle. When this is the case, professional teeth whitening might be your best option. Not only will professional whitening breakup these stain molecules, but they will also brighten your overall tooth enamel.

Feel more confident

When you have a more radiant smile, you no longer feel as self-conscious about your appearance. Whether you are looking to wow the audience during your next work presentation or you are about to walk down the aisle, professional in-office whitening can give you the fast, visible results that you are looking for to feel proud of your smile. Furthermore, having a whiter smile could actually make you look younger!
