Dental CrownsWhat your dentist in Portage wants you to know

Have you been thinking about restoring your smile? Perhaps you suffer from broken, damaged teeth, or you just want your smile to look better. Whatever the reason, dental crowns can enhance and strengthen your smile quickly and effectively. Dr. David Cooley serving Portage and Kalamazoo, MI, offers dental crowns to improve your smile.

Dental crowns can help with many dental issues and are a great choice to repair teeth that are:

  • Severely decayed
  • Badly damaged from trauma or an accident
  • Weakened from root canal treatment
  • Worn-down from aging
  • Chipped or cracked from wear-and-tear

Today’s dental crowns offer aesthetic beauty, too, and can be an excellent choice to:

  • Replace unsightly, large metal fillings
  • Replace deeply stained tooth-colored fillings
  • Hide discolorations due to medications or genetics
  • Reshape teeth to provide a more harmonious look

Dental crowns strengthen damaged teeth by covering the entire visible surfaces of your teeth, much like a suit of armor. When you bite or chew food, the stress and strain are spread evenly across the tooth surface, protecting your tooth from breaking.

In the past, your choice of dental crown materials was limited, focusing mainly on strength and durability. Today’s crown materials are strong, durable, and they look natural. Modern dental materials allow you to have it all, both beauty and strength.

Porcelain is a common dental crown material that reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel. This allows your crown to look natural, just like your teeth. In fact, a porcelain crown will be virtually indistinguishable from your existing teeth. Porcelain also repels stains, so you know your new crown will look great for years to come.

If your smile needs a little help, it’s time to consider dental crowns. Get back to eating the foods you love without worrying about breaking your teeth. Be proud to show off your smile! Just pick up the phone and call Dr. Cooley, serving residents of Portage and Kalamazoo, MI. Call today!
