How dental crowns from your dentists in La Grange, IL, can help your smile

You probably already know that dental crowns can strengthen your teeth, but did you know they can also make your smile more beautiful? In fact, dental crowns can help your smile in many different ways. Here at Carolyn Bronke Wind and Associates in La Grange, IL, Dr. Carolyn Bronke Wind and Dr. Vivian Castellanos offer comprehensive dental care, including dental crowns to help your smile—read on to learn why.

What dental crowns can do for you

A dental crown covers the entire visible surface of your tooth, above the gumline. This overall protection keeps your tooth from breaking by holding your tooth together and shielding it from biting and chewing stress.

These are just a few of the reasons why you may need dental crowns:

  • To rebuild broken, fractured, or damaged teeth
  • To restore tooth structure lost to severe dental decay
  • To strengthen teeth weakened by root canal treatment
  • To restructure teeth that have problematic fillings

You may need dental crowns because of any of the reasons listed above, and you may want dental crowns to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Today’s crown materials offer both strength and beauty. One of the most common crown materials is porcelain, which reflects light, and looks just like natural tooth enamel.

You can choose a full porcelain crown, which is a superb choice for front teeth and teeth that are visible when you smile. Full porcelain crowns are the most aesthetically beautiful choice.

If you need more strength, especially for back teeth, you can choose a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. These crowns offer strong protection and are aesthetically beautiful.
