How dental crowns from your family dentists in Shelton, Connecticut can improve your smile.

If you have damaged your smile, dental crowns can help repair your smile. If you have a smile full of broken teeth, dental crowns can help restore your smile. In fact, there are many benefits of dental crowns. They can strengthen and enhance the beauty of your smile. Dr. Michael Caserta and Dr. Adrian Basu at Dental Associates of Shelton, in Shelton, Connecticut offer a wide range of dental services, including dental crowns to improve your smile.

One of the main benefits of dental crowns is that they strengthen your smile. They do this by:

  • Covering the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline
  • Creating more surface area for chewing, which spreads out chewing pressure
  • Protecting your tooth from breaking and losing vital tooth structure

Another major benefit of dental crowns is that they enhance the beauty of your smile. They do this by:

  • Using porcelain as a main material for dental crowns
  • Making a crown from light-reflective materials that look just like tooth enamel
  • Creating a lifelike crown that will resist staining and look beautiful for years

There are several materials for crowns. Gold was the standard crown material decades ago, but now more people choose exquisite porcelain for their crowns because of its natural look. In fact, once a porcelain crown is placed, it is virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

Porcelain is beautiful, but sometimes you need a bit more strength, especially for back teeth. In this case, the porcelain is fused to a strong metal underlay. These crowns, known as PFM crowns, combine the beauty of porcelain, and the strength of metal, to give you the best of both worlds.

You owe it to yourself and your smile to discover the benefits of dental crowns. Your smile deserves the best protection and the most beautiful restoration, and that’s dental crowns!
