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

There are many things that can damage your smile. Trauma, experiencing a sports injury involving your teeth, or being in an accident can all cause damage. Everyday habits like chewing on ice cubes, pencils, or other hard objects can also chip your teeth.

The good news is, dental crowns can do a lot to repair your smile and make it more attractive. Dr. Edwin Yee in Pensacola, Florida offers a wide range of dental services, including dental crowns, to improve your smile.

One of the main benefits of dental crowns is its superb strength. A dental crown works differently than a large filling. Large fillings can divide your teeth into sections, weakening them. A dental crown covers the entire surface of your tooth above the gumline. The overall coverage means that when you bite down, the stress is spread out over the entire surface of your tooth, protecting the tooth from breaking.

Another excellent benefit you will enjoy when you choose dental crowns is how natural they will look. That’s because one of the most commonly used dental crown materials is porcelain, which has some unique properties. Porcelain is:

Stain-resistant, so your crowns will look white and beautiful for years

Light-reflective, which gives your crown a translucent, lifelike quality

Porcelain resembles a natural tooth structure so closely that once your porcelain crown is placed, it will be virtually identical to a natural tooth.

For back teeth, your dentist may recommend a PFM crown, which is beautiful porcelain that has been fused to a strong metal underlay. PFM crowns are beautiful AND strong, so they are the perfect choice for back teeth which do most of the chewing.

Dental crowns can do a lot for your smile. They provide the strength you need and the beauty you want. To find out more about how crowns can help improve your smile, call Dr. Edwin Yee in Pensacola, Florida at (850) 479-3355. Call today.
