How dental crowns from your dentists in Naperville, IL, can give you a great smile

If you are tired of smiling because of damaged, broken-down teeth, it’s time to let dental crowns improve your smile! There are many benefits dental crowns can offer you and your smile. Drs. Jeffrey and Connie Onik of Willow Ridge Dental Group in Naperville, IL, offer a wide range of dental services, including dental crowns to give you a great smile.

Dental crowns improve your smile by strengthening it. They do this by covering the entire visible surfaces of each tooth, above the gumline. The overall coverage means that when you bite down, the stress and pressure are spread throughout your tooth surface. Even distribution of pressure means your tooth will be less prone to breaking.

Dental crowns improve your smile by making it more beautiful. That’s because one of the main materials used in today’s crowns is porcelain, which looks virtually identical to the natural tooth structure. It’s also light-reflective, just like tooth enamel, AND, it’s stain-resistant, so your porcelain crown will stay stunning for decades.

Full porcelain crowns are the perfect choice for front teeth and teeth that are visible when you smile. For back teeth, where you need a little extra strength for chewing, consider porcelain-fused-to-metal, or PFM crowns. These crowns combine the strength of metal with the lifelike beauty of porcelain, to give you the best of both worlds.

Dental crowns improve your smile in many ways. They provide strength for teeth that are damaged, decayed, worn, broken, or missing tooth structure. Dental crowns also provide beauty for teeth that are heavily restored with old, crumbling, metal fillings.

If your smile needs a little added strength, enhanced beauty, or just some TLC, consider improving your smile with dental crowns.
