How your dentists in Shelton, Connecticut can renew your smile.

Dental Crown SmileA broken, damaged smile can affect your confidence. If your self-esteem and self-confidence are suffering because of a not-so-perfect smile, or if the years of wear-and-tear have hurt your smile, It’s time to restore your smile! The answer is dental crowns! Dr. Adrian Basu or Dr. Michael Caserta at Dental Associates of Shelton in Shelton, Connecticut want to tell you more about what dental crowns can do for you and your smile.

Your smile is your trademark. It’s often the first thing people notice when they meet you, so you want your smile to make a statement. The truth is dental crowns do more than just restore your smile. They make your smile look great too!

That’s because today’s crowns are made of natural-looking, life-like materials like porcelain, which blend with your smile rather than detract from it. Porcelain has a unique property because it reflects light, just like tooth enamel, so your new crowns will look completely natural.

In addition to porcelain, crowns can be made of porcelain fused to a metal underlay, known as a PFM crown. These crowns combine the strength of metal with the cosmetic beauty of porcelain.

Restoring your smile is easy with dental crowns because dental crowns cover the entire visible tooth area above the gumline. They can repair and restore both minor and major damage. In cases of severe breakage, a metal post may be inserted into your tooth and a build-up of metal created for the crown to attach to.

Dental crowns are the answer to repair and restore teeth that are:

  • Worn-down or eroded from aging
  • Broken a damaged from wear-and-tear
  • Heavily discolored from medications

If your self-esteem is suffering because of your less-than-perfect smile, it’s time to get your smile back. It’s time for you to discover what dental crowns can do for you. To get started, just pick up the phone and call Dental Associates of Shelton today!
